    Do you believe in that?
    Apparently I'm straight according to this chart. Not sure how accurate it is.
    Does it apply to you? What are your thoughts?

    It looks like they are the same length to me, both the ring and index finger.

    Just like 1285ptyk, my ring and index fingers look the same. I just measured it at the ratio 1 to 1.01, so my index finger is the same size or very slightly longer than my ring finger.

    There some studies indicating that men with high digit ratio are more likely to be gay, but also more likely to have heart disease and score higher on exams, but it doesn't mean that all men with high digit ratios (longer index finger than ring finger) are gay. I had seen studies the states that more gay men are left handed and counter-clockwise hair whorl. My father is left handed, and he is not gay at all, but I am right handed.

    I believe that sexual orientation is a mix of genes and biological factors but any one gene necessarily make a person gay, it is probably a mix of genes and environment in the womb cause a person to be gay, bi, or straight. It is one of life's questions.icon_confused.gif

    Doesn't work for me.

    Then again, I am so "straight acting" according to others even a psychologist commented on it. So maybe it does, icon_rolleyes.gificon_confused.gif

    My hands aren't symmetrical. On my right hand the index finger is shorter than my ring finger. On my left hand the reverse is true. A marker for bisexuality? ;-)

    Historically, digit ratio was also used to determine who's a werewolf. That turned out to be bullshit too.

    Here's a better indication:

    If you like to suck cock, you're gay.

    My ring finger and index finger on both hands come to the same distance on either side below the middle fingers which, of course, has anthropological significance in that I can flip the bird equally well with either hand.

    The scientific term for it is that I'm ambi-gofuckyourself. Pardon my Latin.

    If any of your fingers have been in a guy's ass and your aren't a board certified physician you just might be gay.

    Well, that's a relief! As we used to say in the Army, "Bend and spread 'em!" icon_biggrin.gif

    If your hand is bigger than your face, you have cancer. I'm right. Do you know that?

    On both hands, my ring finger is slightly longer than my index finger. Whether that actually means anything is questionable.

    What about toe length? When I lived in Fiji (1994 - 2004), many people were barefooted at home and even in church. On some people, I noticed that the toe next to the great toe is longer than the great toe. Does that mean anything? On my feet, there is a steady decrease in toe length from the great toe to the small toe.

    get this man an award, and a cock to suck on. Ideally a pretty one.

    Please don't go, you're great eye candy icon_sad.gif

    *edit* I can see some of these things matching, now that I've taken the time to read the articles, however... the bi-erasure going on in it is ridiculous, which is nothing to say for lived experiences and cultural influences.
