Who knew that it was as easy as looking at the back of someone’s head to tell if they are a homo?

Also of note:
Digit Proportions (Female): The index fingers of most straight men are shorter than their ring fingers, and for most women they are the same length or longer. Gay men and lesbians tend to have reversed ratios.
They got me with the second one! My index finger is longer, though my hair whorl is so heterosexually clockwise. Maybe that means I’m bi and I never knew!
