The wonderful world of science continues to burrow into sexual difference. A study out of Ontario contradicts earlier evidence by saying gay and bisexual men are more likely to write with their right hand.
A new study has provided a new twist on the connection between sexual orientation and right or left-handedness, claiming that gay or bisexual men have an elevated incidence of extreme right-handedness.
….The [study] reviewed 538 gay or bisexual men and 373 heterosexual men.
Bogaert asked about the sexual attractions and behavior of all the men. They were questioned about their right or left hand usage for 10 physical activities.
Gay men are also more inclined to exhibit extreme favoritism for either their left or their right hand. Straight men, meanwhile, seem to straddle the dexterous divide.
Bogaert claims his findings suggest a real connection between “neurodevelopmental anomalies” and sexuality. While that may be true, we’d like to see some examination of lesbian hands, too. Why are the gays always the guinea pigs?!
