    Apparently, the ratio of the second and fourth digit in your right hand can give away your sexual preference.

    Here's the link:

    So sexuality is partly genetic, and partly based on the conditions of the fetus in the womb and the hormones/androgens he/she is exposed to...

    Ok i didn't catch the idea...
    if i divide the length of my index finger and ringer finger i should be situated between 0.95 and then see if i have many older brothers and then i'll be possibly gay???

    I have only one older brother and 2 elder sisters, my index is shorter than my ring finger, so now it lies in the math????

    Repeated, but it is still an interesting thought.

    I don't think it is 100% accurate, but according to statistics the hypothesis is true. Dunno...

    I've read about that study before and I think the claim is a bit overly ambitious... There are alot more factors that should be taken into account, like race and lifestyle. For race, you have the broad groups, white, black, yellow, red whatever. But then what about going deeper i.e. a Russian vs Italian in digit length? As for life style what what did the sample pool do? Were they farmers, urbanites, some derivative of a warrior class.

    here's a cutout from another study looking at race.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2649659/

    Results
    For the skeletons of European/Caucasian extraction (Ns = 89 males, 50 females), there were substantial sex differences for several of the metacarpal length ratios, but the pattern was not identical with the pattern previously reported for human fingers. Namely, the largest sex differences were for the three ratios involving metacarpal 5 on the left hand, while the sex difference for the ratio comparing the second and fourth metacarpals (the comparison commonly showing the largest sex difference for fingers) was small and non-significant for both hands in these European-Americans. For the skeletons of African extraction (Ns = 65 males, 55 females), no sex differences were found in any of the 20 metacarpal-length ratios. This outcome was unexpected because past research had shown sex differences in finger-length ratios for people of African extraction. For metatarsals, none of the 20 ratios exhibited a substantial sex difference for either group of skeletons.

    That is not an indicator for me.

    When I posted the same research, most people responded that the pastern didn't hold true for them.

    The vast majority of studies that presume to find something are found to be meaningless in repeated studies by other scientists. A very small fraction actuallyhave some type of meaning.

    In other words, most studies that purport to find something are wrong.

    There are no comments needed here. The topic is hilarious enough.

    1. In statistics you NEVER accept a hypothesis. You only fail to reject a hypothesis. World of difference and not just a matter of semantics.

    2. Apropos the test, how were the experiments carried out? In plot 1 the confidence intervals for the right hand overlap for the gay and straight men. Clearly, not enough to draw conclusions from.

    Correlation does not necessarily imply causality. icon_smile.gif

    I read that article- hilarious. What`s next? Size of testicles proportional to sexual preference? Or better yet, if your left foot is larger than your right foot, then you must be gay. Who even signed off on this research grant? Seriously? I`m sure they were all over that one: ``we would like to study sexual preference and finger size``. Their digits must have been shoved up someone`s arse.

    Hahahahahahaha

    Next will be: "we would like to study sexual preference and penis/vagina size"

    Sizes are very important to sexual preference...
