Is it possible to have one's gaydar serviced or replaced?
I just found out that my cousin got married. To a guy. I was at least 110% sure she was a lesbian. She might have been a tricky case, because she had my sister fooled too, but I'm wrong about people's sexuality pretty often. So can I get a new gaydar array on ebay or take a class or something before I really embarass myself?

1. I'd give you lessons, but I don't know how to teach effective gaydar.
I seem to always have a pretty good idea about men, somewhat less so with women.

(But I can never figure women out anyway.)

I can't break it down or analyze it at all, I just seem to usually know.

2. Well, it doesn't mean the gaydar is broken.
One of my cousins always pinged my gaydar. Then, she had a huge wedding to a man. Six months later, they were divorced. Now she's in a domestic partnership with a woman and they have a kid together.

There's no way to fix your gaydar though. Anyway, straight people usually have pretty broken gaydar.

3. I might still be right about the cousin
But I've been really, really, really wrong before. I'll PM you the details.
