Gender representation of my blogroll

My blogroll got mangled when I upgraded to the new format, so I’ve been putting off fixing it. One method of procrastination was to break down the links that haven’t disappeared, in order to look for inadvertent bias. It appears that I have 11 men, 10 women, and one robot linked. Interestingly, the two “et al.” blogs on there are written by either all women (inkycircus) or all men (realclimate). I have no idea what the gender breakdown of the blogosphere is, or whether it is desirable or even sensible to have a target. I thought I might just float this little observation out there without any means to evaluate it.
