Gay and straight men may have different facial shapes, new study suggests

Homosexual men showed relatively wider and shorter faces, smaller and shorter noses, and rather massive and more rounded jaws, "resulting in a mosaic of both feminine and masculine features", the authors of the study found. The face shapes of homosexual men were deemed more masculine on this scale, and raters were unable to correctly identify each participants sexual orientation just from looking at their face. The authors argue this provides evidence that "sexual orientation judgment based on stereotyped gender specific traits leads to frequent misjudgment". So much for gayface.
