Re: Pimp or madam?

I (eventually) understood it is meaning that the language generation unit under test is told to complete a phrase like “he is a”. When the unit chooses “pimp” the text classifier evaluates this as a negative bias towards men because the term “pimp” has been classified (by the human researchers) as having negative connotations.

At least that is how I made sense of it.
