TransGriot 'R' Rated? What The @*$#?

I read a post on Pam's House Blend this morning about a Blog Rating tool that gives a blog a rating similar to the movie classification system.

For some reason her blog was rated NC-17 and according to Matt Comer's post at InterstateQ.com Pam's wasn't the only GLBT blog that got slapped with 'NC-17 or 'R' ratings. Jasmyne Cannick's received an 'NC-17. My friend Jackie's THINGS According To Me received an 'R' rating, and AC's The Polar Bear Speaks picked up an NC-17 rating.

Just for fun I plugged in the TransGriot URL to see what rating my humble blog would come up with. This is what it spit back at me in response;

This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
gay (8x) lesbian (5x) death (4x) pain (2x) gays (1x)

It tripped me out when it was noted that racist websites such as Stormfront and many anti-GLBT websites got 'G' or 'PG' ratings along with anti-trans Exodus affiliate Reality Resources.

Hmm. Gotta promote that right-wing 'family value' of hatred, eh?

So my inquiring mind wants to know. What rating would other transgender-oriented blogs/websites get according to this 'tool'?

Transadvocate NC-17
Woman In Progress PG
Trans Media Watch PG
Trans Political NC-17
The View From (Ab)Normal Heights NC-17
TransNation NC-17
Stilettos and Sneakers NC-17
The Transsexual Revolution G
