SEATTLE — There’s a new app available in the Android marketplace that’s likely to amuse some, and annoy others — “Is My Son Gay?”
According to the app’s webpage, “After this test you’ll have the proven answer to a question you might have since maybe a long time.”
MSNBC’s Technology and Science Editor Athima Chansanchai writes in her MSNBC Gadgetbox review:
The only sample questions we saw on that page were these:
Does he like to dress well: is he very careful when choosing his outfits and selecting brands?
Does he like football?
Now, I don’t know about you, but a Yes followed by another Yes describes a lot of men I know, including my brother. My recently married brother.
Curious, Chansanchai said she paid the $2.69 fee and was presented with this list of questions:
Other questions — typos and all — included:
- 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?
