The Gay Science?

The New Yorker presents this article on recent research findings on all things…well, outwardly gay. Some of this stuff is donwright interesting…like:

EXAMPLE A: Hair Whorl (Men)
Gay men are more likely than straight men to have a counterclockwise whorl.


EXAMPLE C: Digit Proportions (Female)
The index fingers of most straight men are shorter than their ring fingers, and for most women they are the same length or longer. Gay men and lesbians tend to have reversed ratios.

    I am a girl and my ring finger is significantly longer than my index finger. It’s a strange and probably silly way to legitimize my feelings, but now I don’t feel so bad about questioning my sexuality where I am usually labeled “bicurious” with an eyeroll.
