My google profiler thinks I'm male

In the category of weird machine learning applications, I learned today that Google uses its information about your search history to infer your age and gender...and Google got it wrong!

I guess my search history just doesn't seem very female-ish: sports, computers & electronics, politics, mortgages, dogs.  I wonder whether it is Reddit's fault.  In any case, you can check your google ad profile here.
