    In "The Science of Gaydar" in New York Magazine, reporter David France talks to scientists who are trying to determine whether, if sexual orientation is biological, then perhaps the traits that we associate with it are also. As it turns out, they’ve found that gay men are three times more likely (23% vs. 8%) to have a counterclockwise hair whorl than straight men in the general population.

    "They’ve found that gay men are three times more likely". More likely, not every single gay guy.

    Clockwise. I'm straight according to this and straight according to the finger test thread the other day. So I just went and tried to stomach some lesbian porn- oh well, can't pass all the tests.

    People who keep saying that it must be wrong because it doesn't fit you: you do realize that according to this, 77% of the gay population would still have clockwise right? The statistical significance would be in the fact that 92% of the straight population is clockwise, meaning that it is more likely for a straight guy to have the clockwise hair than a gay man. It is still likely that either will have it though.

    I still find this to be a really dumb way to tell ha ha. Interesting nonetheless though!

    + Able = ?

    What does albatrossable have to do with anything?


    Also, gay men are 58% more likely to date another guy than straight men.

    It could also be just a coincidence. Looking for trait X in group A and B will most likely define X to be more commun in either group.
