Gillard's finger ratio?
I've had a bit of a look at the enlarged photo from this news story linked to below, and I think it possibly shows that Julia Gillard, our current Prime Minister and Australia's first female PM, might not be quite the typical female. True to an apparent pattern in politicians, she appears to have quite a masculine finger ratio, but I'm happy to admit it is hard to tell from this photo. She has left her hand-print somewhere in one of those silly publicity stunts that pollies do. Being a nosey bitch, I'd love to be able to see the print and take some measurements from that. Proper scientist 2D:4D digit ratio researchers work off photocopies of hands. Nosey bastards take note - Gillard isn't the only pollie who has left her hand prints behind in a publicity stunt. Perhaps we should have reserved all the hoo-ha about having a lady PM till we checked that the woman in question had index fingers that are definitely equal to or longer than her ring fingers (like a normal female), but then again, anyone waiting for such a feminine person to make their way to the pinnacle of power might be left waiting forever.
