My mom also watched the 700 Club. :S  I also always confuse Pat Robertson with Robert Pattinson.

What if agnostics made certainty illegal?  Wait, how would we be certain that it's illegal or not? ...

I do have a really good friend, politically conservative (though she distrusts Republicans about as much as Democrats), Catholic (though not always the most orthodox Catholic), who was totally traditionally against same-sex relationships when I met her (and I was still mostly officially against them at the time, despite not wanting to be), and then her brother came out about two and a half years ago. She was kind of shocked and devastated at the time, using some language that I'm sure she'd regret now (and believe me, she's not normally the type to regret the use of language), but after the two of them talked (a lot), she's accepted him and become his biggest advocate. Really warmed my heart seeing her defend him on the Chik-Fil-A Appreciation Day page on Facebook. And she's still the same person she's always been -- loud, passionate, Christian, simultaneously highly traditional and highly nontraditional in a way that somehow makes sense, stubborn, and above all, fiercely loyal. I really wouldn't have expected her to change her mind two years ago, but looking at things now, it makes perfect sense. The fact that she could integrate it into her worldview like that gives me hope.

I also always confuse Pat Robertson with Robert Pattinson.
The difference is that one only pretends to be a hundred-year-old blood-sucker.

Alternatively, what if absolutists lobbied to make uncertainty illegal, and then it wasn't clear whether the bill would be passed or not?

Interesting idea, but it won't completely die out due to the fact the heterosexual couples can still have homosexual children due to things like younger siblings being exposed to less sex hormones in the womb than their older siblings.

Has anyone here compared their digit ratios to their sexual orientation (and/or penis length)? 



http://fingerlengthdigitratio.wordpress.com/2008/10/19/your-finger-length-and-your-sexual-preference/

I am a heterosexual male and my ring finger is longer than my index finger so I fit the trend. 

I have not attempted to measure and relate my penis length.

Heh, no.  Wenus is the skin under the elbow, but WENIS stands for Weekly Estimated Net Income Statistics according to the TV Show Friends.

What about ****** depth?  Has that been studied? 

While I think the weenus term is funny I am very much in favor of using correct terminology when referring to sexual anatomy.  I cringe when my wife uses cute terms for what I'd prefer be called the correct anatomy term when teaching my 6 year-old something.  It's not like I'm going to teach her that babies come out of a **** when birth canal or ****** are much more appropriate and correct than "front butt" or "wee wee place." 

Edit:  Anyone else check their digit ratio?

My index fingers sit higher than my ring fingers, but the lengths change depending on how they're measured each time.  Since I'm gay, let's just say the index fingers are longer.

I've heard of the Older Brother Effect, where each time a mother carries a male fetus her body becomes more adept at feminizing the fetus (because it is perceived by the female body to be "alien"), but I didn't think there were simply less sex hormones involved.  I am not a scientist, of course.  Apparently the Older Brother Effect only applies to right-handed sons.

I have three older brothers.  Two of them are left-handed, so am I.

I didn't know of the right vs. left handed correlation.  I need to do more research on that aspect.  Also, the less sex hormones concept in my previous post was my simple over generalization based on my limited knowledge of the subject.

I basically paraphrased from this cartoon:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2Xs_dNkmW0" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2Xs_dNkmW0</a>
There was another video about the handedness relation to the older brother effect, but I can't seem to find it.  It was a news report on 60 Minutes, I think...

On my right hand, my ring finger is longer, but on my left hand, they're pretty much the same. I guess that's kinda fitting?

Measuring from the base of the fingers (the crease where they meet the palm), on the inside, at the center of the joint:

Right Index: 7.2cm
Right Ring: 7.8cm

Left Index: 7.4cm
Left Ring: 7.5cm

All my other fingers are the same length on both hands.

(I'm also right-handed and the oldest brother.)

"front butt"
I am still amazed that this is a thing that people actually say.
