Abstract

Appearance may be somewhat predictive of sexual history. This Article explains the foundation for this investigation and pilot study, which considered whether physical appearance evidences sex crime perpetration. Section II discusses facial features associated with non-traditional sexual preferences, sexual aggression, and sexual dominance. Section III, Methods, explains sampling and data collection strategies used to investigate relationships among race, bias, and perception of sex-offending. Section IV presents the data collected from surveying and Section V analyzes this data. Finally, Section VI, the Discussion Section, concludes that perception of sex offense perpetration may correlate with perception that a person is unlikely to be Christian.

Methodological limitations of this pilot study, which may be improved for future studies, are described in Section VII.

Keywords: sex offender, bias, facial, Christian, race, perception, homosexual, gaydar, pervert, registry, visual, detection
