For once?

I'm going to post an article mostly so I can disagree with it.

Sorry, but I've never really bought the finger thing. For one thing, if you're a woman, it's supposed to mean you're promiscuous and a lesbian. Well, I'm looking at my own hands right now. Which would say I'm a randy dyke.

I like guys as much as girls and am in a perfectly stable marriage, thank you.

And I think we can't generalize across to other hominins from observations in humans anyway. Although likely Neanderthals were much like chimps (forget Jean Auel...she's already been proved wrong about Neanderthal gender roles).
