I'm not a woman

But Gmail seems to think that I am. These are the ads currently popping up for me (the topmost ad is particularly disturbing, is it not?):

Why am I seeing these? I'm not sure. I guess there's not enough manly talk in my emails.

A year ago, I wondered here whether other people were as curious about Gmail ads as me. Interestingly, 88% of poll respondents said that they, too, discuss Gmail ads with their friends.

I get the same, men's adverts and spam, and always have, no matter what email account I use. Maybe they're trying to tell me something.

I looked back through the Gmail conversation that spawned those ads. My mid-younger sister's emails included the word "boyfriend" several times so maybe that's what it was all about.
