    Several years ago there was a theory presented. The gay male gene causes some physical manifestations that include the index finger being shorter than the ring finger and the hair on the crown of the head growing in a counter clockwise direction rather than in a clockwise direction. I never heard anything more about this except there are some articles on the web, but nothing scientifically conclusive. I am just curious how many RJ members express this manifestation with their fingers and if your ring finger is longer than your index finger, by how many millimetres is it longer.?

    As you can see by the photo I have posted with this forum, I am way gay, at least according to this theory. icon_wink.gif

    In response to those glorified scientists that took that survey in the first place: Who the fuck cares anyhow? Seriously....

    My index fingers appear to be about 1.25 cm shorter than my ring fingers; and yes my hair appears to grow counter-clockwise on top.

    icon_lol.gif For whatever it's worth.

    What happens when each one cancels the other out?

    Shorter index, remaining hair clockwise (at least if the back of my head were in front of me).

    My index finger is slightly shorter than the ring finger. Also, an illustration in one of my figure drawing books shows a slightly shorter index finger -- but it does point out that proportions are unique to the individual.

    I also read an article on this. I found it interesting because it is presumed that we are recognizing each other not just because of the way we dress, walk, and talk but without knowing it we are actually picking up on cues such as hair growth, finger length and even body odor to recognize each other. In one research gay men found the bo of other gay men more attractive than that of straight men, and in return straight women found the smell of straight men more attractive than the bo of gay men.

    so there is no hiding from each other, trust your animal instinct, if you sense gay and can't figure out why you are probably right.

    I have heard this study, but a while after that I heard that it only applies to lesbians. I think it was saying that almost all guys have different length index and ring finger, but women's index and ring fingers should be the same and only lesbians differ.

    Index finger about 1/2 inch shorter than the ring finger on both hands.

    I can't see the top of my head (I also can't lick my elbow).

    It's actually the opposite: ring shorter than pointer.

    I posted the link to an article on it here, and we talked about it at length http://www.realjock.com/topic/15201/.
