How do you tell if that person you just met at the bar is really a woman or not?
Assuming you didn’t bring bail money with you, so you don’t want to grab her/him in the crotch, there are other ways to tell.
Damn! She/he is wearing a bulky, well-padded blouse!
What about the Adam’s Apple? Ugh! She/he is wearing a turtleneck sweater!
Women in general have broader faces, shorter heads, less prominent chins, shorter legs and longer trunks, but is that enough for you to run the risk of having an embarrassing encounter in your hotel room?

For women it’s usually their index fingers, but for men it’s decidedly their ring fingers!
Scientific studies show that during the middle of the second trimester a male fetus is usually bathed in surges of testosterone. The longer the exposure, the longer the ring fingers, leading to increased physical and verbal aggression, higher levels of achievement in sports (for men and women) and better senses of direction.
