According to the pronoun counter at the He/She Ratio website (hat tip: Feminist Law Profs), Times and Seasons uses a female pronoun 43% of the time and a male pronoun 57% of the time. For comparison purposes, here are some other websites, with corresponding percentages of female pronouns:

CNN.com: 23% female
Bloggernacle Times: 26% female
Concurring Opinions (law blog): 33% female
By Common Consent: 39% female
Sunstone Blog: 40% female
Times and Seasons: 43% female
Millennial Star: 43% female
Blogger of Jared: 47% female
Feminist Mormon Housewives: 53% female
Zelophehad’s Daughters: 56% female
Mormon Mentality: 61% female
Exponent II Blog: 72% female

And of course, I hope that Lisa links to this post on her blog; that Eve mentions it on her blog; that Jana and Caroline note it on their her her blog; and that Steve, Ronan, DKL, and Matt T. say something on their blogs, too. . . . :)

    Watsa matta, Kaimi? Are you sated with “The Mormons” discussion? Me too. This is a nice change.

    Any conjecture on why Exponent II is more femaley-pronouned than Feminist Mormon Housewives?

    And I’ll bet it will drive DKL over the edge when he sees this reality chick — er, check. Good work!

    He him his. He him his. He him his. He him his. He him his. He him his. He him his. He him his. He him his. He him his. Himself. Hisself. Hizzonor. Hizzopatomus.

    We win!

    68% female at Nine Moons. And I HATE women! What’s the deal?

    Rusty,

    “She’s dumb” and “I hate her” still show up feminine.

    I just checked ZD and it said it was 72% female. I don’t know where you got your numbers from. Mormon Mommy Wars also came back as 72% female.

    Oh, and that’s a fun website. Thanks for pointing it out. :)

    Ouch. Mine’s 84% male.

    Wow, can I just say how proud I am of X2′s ratio! We rock. :)

    And pilgrimgirl (my soloblog) is even better: 72% she. Woohoo!

  12. JanaR on May 3, 2007 at 1:42 am

    Oops, that last post I should’ve said that my ratio is equal to X2′s, but slightly better than my husband’s ratio of 64% female.

    “Ever had a drink of watermelon wine,” he asked.
    He told me all about it, though I didn’t answer back.
    “Ain’t but three things in this world that’s worth a solitary dime,
    But old dogs and children and watermelon wine.”

    He said, “Women think about themselves, when men-folk ain’t around.
    And friends are hard to find when they discover that you’re down.”
    He said, “I tried it all when I was young and in my natural prime,
    Now it’s old dogs and children and watermelon wine.”

    Clark, not a lot of room to write about philosphers and change that percentage much.

    Clark, you’re a pig.
