According to scientific research, you're wrong. People CAN tell by just looking at the face an unusually high percentage of the time. There does appear to be a phenotype.

I'm looking for the ariticles to back up my statement. I believe I read it on either Sciam.com or Sciencenewsdaily.com.




Here's the reference. Really though, better than random is about as useful as guessing who's a witch, for purposes of witch burning. (I didn't see the exact stat in the article though, so maybe it's more impressive than I thought)


Are gays really obvious? For instance this list.
Rock Hudson
Portia De Rosi
Lindsay Lohan
John Travolta
and this guy?

Well, now that I see Rosi with Ellen, it may be obvious NOW. From the stories heard later about Hudson, it might have been obvious if he wanted to let you know. I'm really not sure about Travolta, but hear suggestions more than once that he might be.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

What is the point of this thread except to inspire some hatred, name-calling, and generalizations which in the end contributes nothing to this web site or society as a whole?

To give JerryLogan another opportunity to spew hatred.
