Does your website have a gender?

Does your website have a gender?

Like many folks out there, we rather resent having binary gender imposed on us, but sometimes gender can be an interesting (if narrow) tool for analysis. And sometimes, it just make for a fun web-based tool.

If you're someone who finds internet (and facebook!) surveys to be completely irresistible, you may get some enjoyment from this. The folks at uClassify (known for their web text classifier) have developed a text analyzer that proports to determine the gender of a particular website based on the text on the site. Much to our pleasure, comeasyouare.com was considered to be 'quite gender neutral' and was 53% 'female'.

To be fair, because we're a worker-owned co-operative and all of the worker-owners (and staff!) contribute co-operatively to our website and shop, it makes a ton of sense that our site reflects a variety of perspectives (gender and otherwise). Also, we've always consciously sought to include people of all genders and sexualities in our shop (and website) so I'm especially pleased that some arbitrary web-based gender analyzer has recognized this. As have many of you!
