Decoding handwriting can be used for all sorts of purposes. It's used for finding criminals, explaining a person's emotional state or personality. Some even say it can be used to determine if a person is homosexual.
A very famous woman medical doctor, with years of teaching in a famous medical college has this to say about sex when she was asked this question: "Why is it that there can never be a discussion of sex with an impersonal slant?" Her comment which follows is the finest brief concept of sex relationships I have ever heard from a speaker's platform: "With love the sex act is a sacrament. Without love, it is as exhilarating as spitting and gives relief in the same fashion."
Sex is everywhere. You and I would not be here if it were not for it. Handwriting reveals sex appetites and desires the same at it reveals whether the writer is a potential thief, or a domineering, acid-tongued individual. It is this fact that caused me to answer a question badly a good many years ago. In a class in Hollywood, attended by people from all walks in life, including a priest who had traveled some 3,000 miles to take the week's work, some one in the audience put up a hand. "Can you tell from handwriting if a man or woman is a deviate?"
What the questioner meant was whether handwriting revealed homosexuality. My answer was a positive "yes" rather than an evasion of the question. After that in various schools held from coast to coast it invariably happened that some man or woman, or several of them would come up after a class closed, hand me a slip of paper, and in a strictly hush-hush tone ask "Is he?" or Is she?" If I assumed ignorance they stammered and stuttered and ended up by saying "you know what I mean." Certainly I knew what they meant, but as sex is rather primary to life it did not seem to me to be necessary to whisper the question, nor the answer.
However, I should have made my answer to the first question more complete. Handwriting shows homosexuality in some cases and in some it does not. If the writer is conscious that he or she is a homosexual, and is concerned about it, it will show in the handwriting. But if the writer recognizes the situation, and is not bothered by it, or is not worried by what others think, it will not show. It is the mental attitude that shows, not the actual practice of homosexuality.
The handwriting of Oscar Wilde, who served time in prison for homosexual activity, shows no sign of any unusual sex interest. It is the fear or feeling of guilt that reveals itself in handwriting, not the homosexuality.
There are, for instance, thousands of men and women whose handwriting shows latent sexuality that is classified as "abnormal" who are lost, wandering through life. In such cases the handwriting will show the existence of homosexual desires, even though the writer does not recognize that he or she is one of a minority. On the other hand, you have as your first illustration in this chapter the handwriting of Oscar Wilde, who served time in a British prison for homosexual activities, and there is nothing in his handwriting to show any unusual sex interest. Oscar Wilde was a homosexual. It did not bother him. It was not a burden to him. He accepted the fact, and let it go at that.
So in Wilde's case, the theory that homosexuality is evident in handwriting did not hold true. However, people still use handwriting to attempt to unravel the nature of homosexuals.
