To be clear: We are talking about probabilities, only few people with attached earlobes are pedophiles/sex offenders and not all pedophiles have attached earlobes. It’s just a statistical curiosity to have almost half of the democratic candidates with this rare anatomical feature (in cases of total attachment).
Can scientists spot a pedophile? Study claims they are more likely to have physical deformities and be left-handed
- It also found pedophiles were more likely to have non-detached earlobes
- Other physical irregularities include mishappen ears and being short
- These can develop due to baby’s exposure to alcohol or drugs in the womb
- Scientists suggest pedophiles can be identified before they commit a crime
“Facial anomalies could, among others, include having non-detached earlobes, malformed ears, or a high or steepled palate. These features develop during the sensitive first and early second trimesters while a baby is still in the womb, from the same primary embryonic tissue layer that gives rise to the central nervous system.”
Although the traits vary, the size of the earlobes for both the traits remain the same. An average man’s ear measures 6cm, while for a woman it is about 5cm, in which the earlobe size measures about 2cm.
