International LGBT+ equality organization All Out has just posted this petition asking Android users to support the removal of “Is My Son Gay”, an app currently in the Marketplace that aims to figure out a person’s sexual preference based on a clearly homophobic questionnaire.
Hopefully Google will remove the app soon, as they’ve done with similarly offensive apps in the past. Below are some of the questions included in the app’s quiz, if you’re interested in what all the fuss is about.
Before he was born, did you wish for a girl? Has he ever been in a fight? Does he read the sports page in the newspaper? Is his best friend a girl? Does he like team sports? Is he modest? Is he a fan of divas (Madonna, Britney Spears)? Does he spend a long time in the bathroom? Does he piercings in his tongue, nose or ears? Do you wonder about your son’s sexual orientation? Are you divorced? Does he like musical comedies? Has he ever introduced you to a girlfriend? Is his father a very authoritarian person? Within your family, is the father absent at all? During his childhood, was he timid or discreet? Does he have a complicated relationship with his father? Does he take a long time to do his hair? Does he like to dress well: is he very careful when choosing his outfits and selecting brands? Does he like football?
