Was Ernest Hemingway Transgender?

There is clear evidence that Ernest Hemingway was some shade of transgender.

The American author and Nobel prize winner Ernest Hemingway has been seen as the epitome of hyper-masculinity, with his stories about matadors, hunting and war. 

Indeed, he did play the role of the manly man, also in his private and public lives, although it turns out that he and some of his female friends explored another side of sex and gender.

His male assigned child came out as a transgender woman, but few know that Ernest himself might have been equally transgender. 

His unfinished novel, The Garden of Eden, represents a brave exploration of his own gender variance and his own crossdreaming.

The six stages of gender denial

  1. "I am comfortably cis."
  2. “I sometimes like presenting as female - it's weird, I don't know why I do it, but that's it”
  3. “I would actually do this all the time if I could”
  4. “I know I would rather be female, but I am not trans”
  5. “I think I am trans and I should probably do something about it”
  6. “I AM trans and I AM going to do something about it”
If you use trans as an umbrella term for all shades of gender variance, these stages of yours may not fit all, but it sure makes sense to many!

Does anyone know the significance of having a female-typical digit ratio, or is that just pseudoscience?

 Andonis Longos asks over at CDL:

"I had always assumed that everyone had fingers like mine, that the index was always longer than the ring finger, and had no idea that many people (supposedly most men) have fingers of the opposite length. So I then realized that I basically have a "female-typical" finger-length. Since some seem to claim that this corresponds with pre-natal hormones, I was wondering if anyone could comment on this or if it is just pseudoscience."
