Turns out science actually has some answers for us.
There have been a number of scientific research studies conducted that have investigated this very hot topic. Here are some of the findings that speak to how we can decipher an individual’s sexual orientation:
A Cornell University study reports that the pupils of our eyes dilate when viewing sexual imagery that we find exciting. This possibly suggests that when attracted or feeling erotic toward someone, our pupils will dilate and this might be one indicator of his sexual preference.
Researchers from the Center for Theoretical Study at Charles University in Prague and The Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic indicate that there are some unique differences in the shape of gay versus straight men’s faces.
They purport that gay men in their study showed wider and shorter faces, smaller and shorter noses, and larger, more rounded jaws of a masculine appearance.
Similarly, a University of Washington Study also highlights how sexual orientation can be judged with fair accuracy by particular facial features and configurations.
Rather than merely adoring how cute Mr. Studman is, perhaps really inquisitively studying his facial structure and composition could reveal his true nature.
A study published in the September 2013 Journal of Personality and Social Psychology alleges that gay men tend to walk with a slight “sway” of the hips, while lesbians walk with a back-and-forth motion of their shoulders.
Fact or reinforcement of a stereotype?
A variety of researchers named in this article report the following findings about a confirmation of a gay sexual orientation:
If you’re going to get your answer about your office mate’s sexual orientation, you’re going to have to get creative about scanning his hairline, intimately studying his hands, and finding a way to reach into his pants to support your assumptions about where he potentially lies on the Kinsey Scale.
Can we argue with science? Are they truly substantiated, or are they biased? Do they feed into stereotypes or provide some additional clues into helping to clarify this perplexity? How is your “gaydar” wired in being able to identify whether someone is gay and a possible dating prospect?
