Scientists claim women have hormone-induced gaydar

The University of Toronto has completed an experiment proving that women become better at identifying homosexuality while they're ovulating just by looking at a man. The research proves that when a woman is ovulating, she has a heightened desire to find a mate, which increases her accuracy when deciphering a man's sexual orientation.

In the study, several women were asked to look over pictures of 80 different men, half of them straight, half of them gay. The men all posed identically, and the women were told to simply use their intuition. The results, which were published in Psychological Science, revealed that the closer a woman was to ovulation, the better she was at predicting a man's sexual orientation.  

I don't know… if these women have such great gaydar, why am I sleeping with their husbands?
