    Smile little finger

    What does it mean when an American raises his little finger?

    In Everybody Loves Raymond, Raymond's father often made this gesture.

    Re: little finger

    I would think (without seeing the gesture) that he is indicating he thinks someone or something is gay (homosexual/dainty)
