This tended to be the opposite in homosexuals. My older son has clockwise hair whorl and my baby has counter clockwise hair whorl and "backwards" finger length, so it'll be interesting to see what happens when they grow up.
I thought the finger thing only was indicative in women.
ETA: I was tired when I wrote this, now that I've been up and going for a bit, I suddenly remembered that it's some kind ear structure that is associated with gay women.
What I had actually been thinking about with the finger thing, was that people often get confused that a short ring finger in women is associated with being gay, when it is actually the norm.
