The single most closely kept secret on the internet has been exposed, by a website known as URLAI.
Despite everything you have heard or would assume about the internet and 4chan, there ARE in fact female users. And apparently, there are a lot of them.
The highly-sophisticated, unquestionably accurate robots at URLAI use a number of qualities to determine the gender and demographic makeup of a site's userbase. According to the site, nearly 60% of /mlp/'s users are Femanons.
Among those users, the majority are either underage b&, or older than sin.
The site also places gender values on frequently used words and phrases, and displays them in accordance to their frequency. It is 100% verifiable scientific fact that the words "cum" "biscuit" "can't" and especially "penis" are all feminine words.
The analysis goes deeper, informing us that /mlp/ is the "710th most feminine and 972th most happy blog of 1545 ranked." The rankings and stats continue to shift as more websites are added to the rankings.
Curious of how other sites stack up, we decided to run an analysis on ourselves, to see if everything that people accuse us of is true from a scientific standpoint.
Strange, some people claim that we are overwhelmingly negative about everything. Imagine that.
Let's look at some others.
Woah, somebody get the guys over at EFN some icecream...or some prozac. According to the analyzer, EFN's posts are overwhelmingly negative (they are even below HN on the happiness index). They also have far fewer feminine voices; EFN is the 329th most "manly" site, the inclusion of the "manliest brony" on the staff roster likely assists with that. Critical to EFN's highly-scientific gender-assignment are the keywords used.
As you can see by this graph, EFN's inherent manliness is derived from the use of the specifically masculine numbers
found inside of a fortune cookie including 33, 34, 36, 37, 54, and 76, as well as the masculine noun "featherweight". These terms outweigh the feminine words "tuna", "purses", "cute", "tiara", and the number 125, all appearing on the site.
Interesting. (Again, these are at time of posting. The analyzer can and will continue to shift in relation to other sites as more data is added).
On the opposite side of the spectrum we have April Davis' site which was ranked as being the 5th most feminist site in the database. Quite a feat that has shocked exactly zero people.
Aaaand we can't show you stats for EQD, because Seth has something fucked up apparently.
A cursory examination of the HN staff noticed a discrepancy between our believed gender-distribution, and the scientific data. HN and /mlp/ are far more feminine than previously believed, meaning only one thing: our staff have been lying about our genders to each other for months now.
At least half of the men on the staff are actually women, and we are on witchhunt to find out who's who. It is unclear how the women of /mlp/ will act, now that they know that they have actually been trolling each other for over 2 years into thinking they are all men.
Want to know where the stats are now, and learn more about others?
