Gender & Google

Inspired by this article “Does Google Think You’re the Wrong Gender?”, I’m running a test and changing my gender in Google’s settings to “agender”. I don’t strongly identify with either gender and, after hearing a coworker mention the term I ran with it for this fun little test. I’m curious what ads I’m shown when they don’t have a gender marker to base their strategy on.

Plus, I’m hoping my spotify account is somehow connected up to this more directly so I can stop getting ads about condoms 😉 As much fun as that is, condom usage is not a current or likely future plight of mine.
