This “Downward hand gesture” mainly involves bending at the wrist, your forearm up, and the inside of your fingers facing the floor. It is most usual to see this hand gesture, when the hand is first facing up, than it flops down.
This hand gesture mainly represents “being gay” this hand gesture is just saying “Gay” each time you do it.

You can also see it in different forms for the different sexualities.

Example: Pansexual is a finger gun, starting by pointing to the sky, the pointing in front of you.

The Shrinking-Box Hand Gesture (SBHG) is used to describe abstract things by leadership in a corporate environment. Typical uses are to describe a process, workflow, or when making a really good point that everyone should pay attention to. To perform the SBHG, simply start with your hands placed wide on the table with your palms facing eachother. After making each point, or describing each step, lift your hands like you are holding a box, and pretend to shrink it by an increment proportional to something in your description. Place the imaginary box back on the table. Your hands will be closer together with the palms facing. Now, repeat the process until you are satisfied. This phrase can be used in many situations such as:
"Wow, that was a good Shrinking-Box Hand Gesture used in that meeting!"
"He/She really got me with that Shrinking-Box Hand Gesture. I just nodded and agreed!"
"I will now perform the Shrinking-Box Hand Gesture"
Wow, that was a good Shrinking-Box Hand Gesture he/she used in that meeting!

When you turn your hands into a claw like shape point your finger tips at each other and move them in a way as if your solving a rubrics cube then simultaneously making a deep sound similar to that of a whale making sweat love to a cow. Going a little something like this " Whab, whab, whab" This gesture can be used in many situations such as explaining lesbian sex to a young child teaching and telling your fiends this is what you did his/hers mom last night. The goal of this gesture is to instill fear and confusion.
