If you need further proof that we as humans are traveling back in time to the 80s, look no further than this last group of research at the Essex University.
A study by dr. Tuesday Watts found that the difference in length between the index and the ring could indicate whether or not he is gay.
The study was conducted by measuring the fingers of 18 pairs of identical female twins, in which one was straight and the other identified as a homosexual.
In conclusion, they found that the gay twin had a "male hand" more typically than their sisters, which could be the result of testosterone in the womb.
The same experiment was conducted on 14 male twins, in which the results were judged inconclusive.
The dott. Watts is cited by the BBC:
Because identical twins, who share 100% of their genes, may differ in their sexual orientation, factors other than genetics must explain the differences.
Research suggests that our sexuality is determined in the uterus and depends on the amount of male hormone we are exposed to or the way our individual bodies react to that hormone, with those exposed to higher levels of testosterone that are more likely to be bisexual or homosexual.
Because of the link between hormone levels and the difference in finger lengths, looking at someone's hands could provide a clue to their sexuality.
While you're probably all measuring your fingers now, we can not help but think that a person's sexuality is reduced to something much deeper and more complex than the size of their fingers.
Imagine having a bigger finger than the other means that you should completely determine your sexual orientation and who are you attracted? A little ridiculous when you really sit down and think about it.
In addition, the study has a very small research pool and does not even host people identified as bisexual, pansexual or asexual. Sexuality is a spectrum, after all.
The publications of this study, which was printed in Archives of Sexual Behavior, has created some talks on Twitter, with most of the people calling him for his obvious problems.
