Which way does your writing swing?

Do men and women write differently? Can the gender of an author be determined by the words they choose? Some say yes and there's a test to prove it.

I was curious to see if this really worked, so I copied a few pages from my work-in-progress and pasted everything into the analyzer. My results?

Genre: Informal
  Female = 243
  Male    = 970
  Difference = 727; 79.96%
  Verdict: MALE

Does this mean I can stop shaving my legs?
