Without stereotyping, the fairer sex is probably better at expressing their emotions most times. But this may have no relation to writing or authorship.

Writing has nothing to do with gender, but it does influence the nature of the content. Our brains do tend to be wired a little differently with different priorities. XD

Wow, 44 girls and only 16 boys...(i'm guessing the first two responses are some kind of jokes, right?)

Well, I'm a boy, and frankly I thought most people here were men. Why? Here in Mexico, most girls only like male actors and singers, and vice versa.
Men don't say "I like'em", we say something like "they play ok" or "i like their music". The "I like this singer/actor" phrase is almost exclusive for girls.
So being used to the "boys likes girls" and "girls likes boys", and watching the poll results I was like "dam!! I'm in a girl heaven" (not that I dont like it  XD)

I do not intend to offend someone here, but if I shall do it, post what part and why you consider it offensive.

On that note...  :P

Scoring male on most of my inputs.  :lol:

^Ahahaha! Well, it isn't absolute. XD There are always exceptions to the rule. :P I tried a few inputs and while my personal blog entries tend to be female, when I start writing fic it veers sharply towards a more masculine tone. Don't ask me why. XD

XD I just tried it out. I put only one page worth of writing.  It said with my latest one-shot I'm a male and with my current chapter fic, that I'm working on right now, says I'm a female. o.O That was amusing. lol

It's telling me I'm a female when I plug in chapters of my writing, but I think it might be a bit skewed because of all the "she" and "her" keywords because I'm writing completely about, well, girls :lol: Without the points for those I'd have scored male :lol:

I don't really have anything else of enough content to plug in there  :huhuh

I plugged in the first chapter of "an annoying paradise" (one of the sho-comi) chapters and it came up female, but only by a small margin.

I plugged in the fourth chapter of "an annoying paradise" (one of the macho shounen jump chapters) and it came up female by a wide margin.

@ Rokun, yeah I noticed all the pronouns to refer a female as being highlighted in my chapter fic. Then I decided to put in my one-shot, which also focuses on a girl, so there are she and her in there, but not as much. That's probably why I got male for that.

That site is rigged/fake!

It's not the prevalence of male or female pronouns, but that female writing apparently tends to use more pronouns in general while male writing uses more noun specifiers. The algorithm for the gender genie is based on this: http://u.cs.biu.ac.il/~koppel/papers/male-female-text-final.pdf

So probably a more descriptive writing style comes up as male, and a more personal, emotion/character/POV-driven narrative probably comes up female.
Since idol fic is mostly the latter case, yeah they'd come up female. Probably world-building AU focusses score male. And don't forget to check the actual scores, because often they're pretty close and thus not really indicative of "gendered" writing.
