gender bender blues

my friend r.a. washington blogged about a site that analyzes your writing and decides whether you are female or male – gender genie.

i tried my non-fiction story of mom dying as i held her hand – the gender genie says:
Female Score 2091 words, Male Score 1402 words
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: female!

i looked down at my testicles in dismay and tried again with my self portrait bio:
Female Score 778 words, Male Score 715 words
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: female!

finally i tried my resume:
Female Score: 0 words, Male Score: 0 words
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: unknown!

took a tv test given by barbara walters and tom snyder back in the mid-1970s which measured your male/female personality ratio. walters and my lady friend came up highly masculine, i came up feminine, and snyder wussied out and refused to divulge his score… sounds like a mama’s boy to me.

so i guess you all best start calling me mz smith.

got to see (but not meet) one of our heroes – John Pilger. went to his movie documentary The War On Democracy, and he answered questions afterwards. too many audience questions for us to get one in, and too many fans crowding around after for us to shake his hand and say thanks for exposing the mass murderers also known as the last 11 american presidents. the united states of america has murdered more people in the past 70 years than any other nation on earth – maybe more than the rest of the world combined. we’ve tried to overthrow 50 governments since world war 2, and have actually bombed 30 countries since then – many repeatedly. the u.s. is the major terrorist on earth – also the major arms supplier. if you want an eye-opening book, pick up pilger’s Tell Me No Lies, a selection of world wide government exposes by a variety of journalists since ww2.

saw links to these expensive items on yahoo: $100,000 watch… $7,000 flashlight… $3,000 perfume… $400 jeans … so much money in the hands of the so few. and of course the worst number right now is $9,000,000,000 a month for the iraq war – a sum that could feed and give health care to the entire world’s wretched.

welcome to the dark side, with absolutely no moral light at the end of the tunnel. mankind be bad and getting worse.
