Asperger's syndrome children are said to show higher levels of testosterone in the womb, and Aspergers and autism in general is characterized as a surplus of "male" genetic traits-- abnormally high interest in abstract thought, mathematics, individualism, etc, and by an abnormally low sense of empathy and social skills- the latter of which are generally considered "feminine" traits.
This got me to thinking how this tied in with WHR, or width-to-height ratio-- a measurement of male facial proportions that has been correlated with aggressiveness and dominance:
I was thinking about how this relates to the Connecticut school shooter:
Adam Lanza's face-- outlined in this pic by myself as per the methodology used in the Ontario study-- shows a facial width of 185 pixels versus a length of 130 pixels. That's a WHR of 1.42. The study indicated that the mean/median WHR was in the 1.75-1.8 range; a WHR greater than 1.9 was considered "high", so assuming a relatively standard distribution, ostensibly anything under 1.65 or so is "low". Lanza's WHR of 1.42 would thus seem to be extremely low for a male.
The theory I pose is this: since Aspergers children have such high testosterone from birth, is it possible that their bodies produce much less testosterone during puberty as a sort of negative compensation mechanism? We can perhaps infer that the most successul womanizers are born with average or even below average testosterone-- giving them the empathy, people skills, and ease in dealing with females from a young age-- and then experience a large testosterone surge during puberty, giving them the WHR that females covet as well as more dominant physical and behavioral characteristics.
Kids like Lanza would seem to get the worst of both worlds: their high testosterone in youth makes them ambivalent or uneasy around females, and after puberty they receive far less of the visible secondary sexual characteristics (perhaps including penis growth) while remaining "beta" behaviorally.
