Actually, Shakespeare never used this specific phrase. If he had, the gramtically correct way to say it would be "I bite my thumb at thee!"
I will bite my thumb at them, which is disgrace to them if they bear it.

--Shakespeare (from Romeo and Juliet)

When armies took prisoners in southern Europe in the middle ages, they would sometimes be offered the chance to earn their freedom by eating a fig from a mules anus. As the captors taunted their captive, offering him this degrading method of escape, they would bite their thumbs.

As has been noted before, it has been used by Shakespeare.
A qualified guess is that the phrase, (and the hand gesture that accompanies it), symbolizes oral sex,
and implies that the insulted is gay.
