Google Thinks I’m Older and Male!

I guess it’s a good thing that Google has figured me wrong.   I don’t want to be sold every time I come online so it’s okay with me that Google’s algorithms for figuring me out tell them that I’m ten or more  years older and male.

The bad thing is that it’s probably an indication of some sexism in their algorithms.  I mean I know I hang out at tech sites and science sites  and world news sites more often than I hang out at traditionally female sites  but I”M STILL A FEMALE!  Sheesh.

I don’t feel like changing my ad preferences though so I bet they are going to keep selling me on banks and travel sites.


mo ( even my name sounds masculine doesn’t it?)
