    I think gaydar is also called "being observant"

    Yet another bogus "study" with unbelievable "conclusions" drawn from it. Squares & hexagons = gaydar? I think not.
    Being observant and knowing what gay people wear/act like = gaydar? Well yeah!

    They should have tested for more variables before going anywhere near that conclusion.

    The study isn`t "bogus", the particular summary of it was poorly written and over-simplified.

    Basically, the study suggests that gay men perceive the world around in a way that is a blend of how women, who pick up on details better, and men, who are better at patterns and big picture, see things. According to the study, then, gay men are more adept at noticing details that het men, and better at seeing the pattern or big picture than women, and perhaps, the ability to bring both kinds of data together in one point of view, makes them more aware of the kinds of data that signal traits like sexual orientation.

    haha they are looking at "gaydars" in completely the wrong way XD

    It`s as simple as attention to relevant details. When I first met one of my gay friends, he didn`t know if I was gay or straight, until a large chested woman walked by and he noticed my eyes followed her bouncing. He immediately said "You`re straight." He then explained his gaydar as just noticing who catches your eye.

    But it`s not just the "look" that the basis of gaydar works on.

    I can talk to a seemingly straight guy and if he`s gay, I`ll know.

    Gaydar... like its subtle or something?
    I can usually tell which guys are gay. It tends to be hard to miss. I don`t think gayness is as "hidden" or "hard to notice" as some people think it is.

    @Loxen

    Totally agree. Most so-called Gaydar is just taking notice of the people around you more than the average person does.
