    Guys,

    I am testing a theory. It's not original, but it is a modified theory of one that has already been published. Here is goes:

    I think that gay men have shorter ring fingers (second from the pinkie) than index fingers (pointing finger). I do. And every gay man I have met does (I have only checked out about ten gay hands - only three of whom I told what I was doing - I am still partially in the closet - lol).

    This is where a bunch of you start to roll you eyes. But give this a chance. I don't expect this to be fullproof, but there may be a ring of truth to it. Can you guys post your stats? I am Canadian so I work in the internationlly accepted standard of the metric system ;) If you must, go with inches.

    My ring finger is about 3 mm shorter than my index finger.

    My ring finger is atleast half an inch longer then my index finger.

    Maybe I wasn't born gay afterall!

    Okay. So far I am 0/2. I feel retarded. But that's still a small sample size - there's hope!

    Both of my ring fingers are longer than my pointers.

    I just had now noticed too that my right pointer is 1/8 inch longer than my left pointer.

    Cool.

    Hi, There have already been two contradictory threads on this subject, but if all you are doing is a survey than all the information will be there. BTW, my ring fingers are both 1.5 centimetres longer than my pointers.

    Both of my ring fingers are longer than my index fingers. Back to the ol' drawing board.

    At a glance mine both look even. Maybe they depict gay manneruisms rather than sexuality outright : P. You might get farther with that theory lol.

    both of my ring fingers are longer. But I had heard this theory just the opposite.

    100% Gay here and always have been. My ring finger is about 3mm longer than my index on both hands.

    The study that you refer to is flawed in that it presumes coincidence as causal. There was no counter to the study to correlate to gay specifically as compared to hetero.

    So it looks like your theory is not holding much ground. Actually, it does not look like there is any ground on which it stands.
    However, this might give you some hope. My ring fingers are slightly shorter than my index fingers.

    What does it mean if they are basically equal to one another? Bisexual? I don't know I'm pretty committed to the whole gay thing. Although I think it once got hard looking at Heather Locklear when I was in HighSchool.

    WOW!! I knew of this theory before but recently I saw a program on Nat. Geo discussing the co-relation between finger length and sexaulity and I found it completely fascinating. And it sparked my interest again. It's pretty awesome.

    So the basis of the research was that foetus exposed to higher concentrations of testosterone while in the womb have longer ringer fingers than index fingers thus they are less likely to be gay. These men would be more aggressive etc. And vise versa.

    My ringer finger is 20mm/2cm longer than my index finger.

    From the comments i have read thus far. This theory is not holding up.
