God Made Gay Men Better at Celeb Spotting, Recognizing One Night Stands in Crowded Clubs

Because gay men, like heterosexual women, use both sides of their brains they are better at recognizing faces than heterosexual men, a York University research study concludes. “Study participants were asked to memorize photographs of ten faces, and differentiate them from 50 others, shown to them for only milliseconds each. The images were rendered in black and white and edited to remove ears, hair and blemishes, which can serve as obvious identifying cues. Participants then had to relay which faces were new, as quickly and accurately as possible.” Though it’s worth noting left-handed heterosexuals beat left-handed homos at the task.
