Gender Genie

Got this via david_de_beer's lj

For some reason, the price of trees comes across as masculine. It can't just be down to POV either, because Contraband only has male characters in it. ::ponders:: Nope. No idea why that should be.

it's an imprecise gimmick but a fun one:)

Yes,
it was fun to use and it was interesting which ones were deemed male vs female. I'd have to do it with a greater number to be sure, but the 'straight' SF/ Fantasy stories were usually pegged as male, whereas the SF romance/ Fantsy romance were pegged as female. (The exception being Contraband)
But it was a fun thing to do for 5 minutes!
