Disgusting 'Is My Son Gay?' App Offered Through Android!

We don't care if this is a joke or not, this is an AWFUL way to perpetuate dangerous, offensive stereotypes!

A horrible new app has apparently hit the Android Market, called "Is My Son Gay?" which claims to determine just that - through a series of 20 questions, including:

1. Does he like to dress up nicely? Does he pay close attention to his outfits and brand names?

2. Does he like football?

3. Before he was born did you wish he would be a girl?

4. Has he ever gotten into or participated in a fight?

5. Does he read sports magazines?

6. Does he have a best friend

7. Does he like team sports?

8. Is he prudish/modest?

9. Does he like diva singers?

10. Does he spend a long time in the bathroom

11. Does he have a tongue, nose or ear piercing

12. Does he spend time getting ready before being seen in public?

13. Have you asked yourself questions about your son's sexual orientation?

14. Are you divorced?

15. Does he like musical comedies?

16. Has he introduced you to a girlfriend ever?

17. Is the father (you) very strict or authoritarian with his son?

18. In your family is the father absent?

19. Was he shy as a child?

20. Is he close to his father?

Ugh! Great!

So not only are the questions wrong and bigoted, they also further baseless assumptions that carry no scientific proof about what determines sexual preference! Just what we need!

The creators, Enneme Moi, have since released a statement, which says:

"This app was conceived with a playful approach. It is not based at all on scientific research… Through humor, "Is My Son Gay?" and the forthcoming novel have the sole objective of toning down/improving the situation and helping mothers to accept their sons' homosexuality."

Playful? How will using an app filled with that kind of nonsense make a parent feel comfortable with their child's sexuality? Any parent foolish enough to use that kind of app will clearly not understand that it's an effing joke!

As if this world needs any more ignorance than it already has!

Ugh. Just disgusting.

    I think you are over-reacting, which as much as I love some of the stuff you do, you tend to do. I'm gay, I find it humorous. Stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. Me and my friends would of probably ranked pretty high on that app, and if a parent is wondering, and get's this app, it could be quite a humorous way of starting a very hard conversation. Exactly what the developers said - toning down the conversation.

    Ahh the homosexula of 2011. Ever the victim. Ever the put upon humorless martyr to the cause. I think its the starights who are the victime, having to nod and agree and pander to all of this hysterical whining, because if they dont they are a homophobe.



  3. 3

    There is nothing hateful about this ap homo, in fact it would prove to be offensive to heterosexuals who answer: y,n,y,n,n,n,n,n,y,y,y,y,y,y,y,n,y,y,y,y

    Oh no, I might be gay… HELP!!!!

    I think the word GAY is should be banned from the English language so we can stop hearing all the God damn whinning from those who have this desease.

    Did he want a sewing machine for his birthday?



  5. 5

    "this is an AWFUL way to perpetuate dangerous, offensive stereotypes" Wow! The irony of that statement coming from the biggest most offensive stereotype of all time. The fat bitchy hating Queen Perez….lol



  6. 6

    AQNd thats a pretty good fucking list btw. just because you do not like the questions, does not mean they are not irrelevant. Hates so have soo much self loathing huh Perez?



  7. 7

    I find it hard to believe it true but if it is, well I think it's just wrong and shocking. On so many levels. Hoping it's false.



  8. 8

    Re: Shaniqua Jones – Sorry that should say, just because you do not like the questions, it does not mean that they are not relevant.

    Get a sense of humor, asshole. This is clearly supposed to be lighthearted. If it was an app to determine if your son was Black or gangsta or something this wouldn't even be news…it would just be a joke.



  10. 10

    Gimme a break ! It's a humorous app. So it's now the straight community can't say boo without a rant. Think about it .. it really isn't much different than "your a redneck if" … it's meaningless. To quote the famous - " I ams what I ams" Popeye 1932

    It's actually funny, Mario. These posts make it blatantly clear that you hate the fact that you're homosexual. If you can't laugh at yourself, then you can't laugh at anyone else, and you clearly can't laugh at yourself or your sexual orientation. The only way you can deal with it is to take it and force others to embrace it; if people don't, you become the hater you say you disapprove of. Your sexual orientation has become your hair shirt and club, and if you were as accepting of that aspect of your life as you claim to be, you'd be confident enough in it to refrain from being a homo-militant. Nobody respects you enough to take you or your psychological problems that seriously. Get counseling, get a sense of proportion, and get a clue. You're not the leader of a movement here, and a hypocrite like you isn't going to be responsible for constructive change. So shut up already.

    Re: misslullaby – Why is it wrong and shocking??? What about the well documented homosexual promiscuity involving bareback anal sex? Is that wrong and shocking too?



  13. 13

    Re: La Garse – I couldn't have put it better…well maybe with a touch more thanggggg but well done.



  14. 14

    What I find amazing Mario, is that YOU don't realize, like many other people or groups who 'get offended' by 'something or someone', that so many times you (and the offended) bring attention to something MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE NEVER KNOWN ABOUT, never would have seen…that is, until you or others offended point it out. You do know now, that alot more people will go see what it is about? OR, is that what YOU WANTED?

    Re: La Garse – You're so right! Perez, get a friggen grip. While I thought this was kind of bazaar, the dude said it's a gag to promote a book with the matching name. This kind of thing is a great way to start a hard conversation. People need to be desensitized to the notion that there is something wrong or horrible about people who are gay. Many of the questions listed could be true for anyone… in fact, pretty sure if you plugged in the answers for the Jersey Shore dudes you'd get that they're all gay too LOL… Lighten up and get a sense of humor dude.



  16. 16

    Booooooooooo!



  17. 17

    They forgot "Do you listen to ColdPlay"? HA!. Gay bastard. LIghten the fuck up. Poor gays, the victims, you play it so well. It's a joke, quit looking for society to baby you, it's not all about you. Fuck off.



  18. 18

    Everyone is over-reacting, i'm a gay male, and this in no way offends me its more on the humorous side. Problem with gay people is they have 0 sense of humor. If they re-named this app "Is my str8 friend Gay" and marketed it to the gay community. There would be no uproar. And us gay guys would go crazy over the app. Gimme a friggin break! and lighten up!



  19. 19

    I fail to see the funny



  20. 20

    Oh, lighten up Perez, that is some funny shit. Stop playing the victim… it's getting old.



  21. 21

    Way to go dumbass! Now everyone is going to want to have that app thanks to you here. Oh I get, it is your app! Isn't it?



  22. 22

    Re: La Garse
    ahhhhh….take your own advice La Farce. You anti Perez MILITANT FREAK! Put it into a reasonable perspective and find some other place and reason to live.



  23. 23

    Re: La Garse
    IF he is not a leader of a movement why are YOU such a stink on his behind bitch?



  24. 24

    whinebag!!! grow a pair!



  25. 25

    Oh lighten up Mario, do you take everything so seriously? You aren't this concerned when you post crotch shots of young (some underage) female celebrities. Besides, stereotypes catch on for a reason you know, they're usually correct.



  26. 26

    I have to agree with many of you. i think this app is quite humorous. i know straight men and women who would answer this and think they were gay. If your a girl and you like sports .. does that make you a lesbian. I think not. if your gay.. you can't like sports. come one people. I'm gay i like sports (GO SF GIANTS). if you've ever been to a bookstore that carries LGBT literature.. you would find many hilarious material like this. How do you know that people behind the book and app are not gay or ten lesbian themselves

    get a grip if you can't take a joke or laugh at your self from time to time. then ur just a frigid Bitch



  27. 27

    Can you get this app in Spanish? The Cuban Cigar Rollers Union would like to distribute it among the breeding members. By-the-way, how are book sales going, Piggy?



  28. 28

    LOL.. its kinda of funny.. people should really lighten up.. Do you know how many offensive apps are on the different phone platforms markets?

  29. k-lee says – reply to this


    29

    Haha fuck off, it's funny!



  30. 30

    this is hilarious! Sterotypes are the best form of humor. All races, gender, and sex orientations have them. Stop being so uptight. Your making Gay people seem weak and pathetic.



  31. 31

    Re: hoochpit – Or Does he listen to lady gaga and dub himself as one of her monsters? LOL!



  32. 32

    LOL if anyone actually thinks an APPLICATION can prove someone's sexuality. They are as dumb as the creators of the app.



  33. 33

    Is there anything the gays don't complain about? You're being so gay.



  34. 34

    We all know you can't take a joke perez. What else is new?



  35. 35

    21. Does he dress bad and wear hats to small to cover his bad hair plugs



  36. 36

    22. Does he really have bad taste in music



  37. 37

    its not funny but ur way worse for the gays then this app is :)



  38. 38

    Mario, only U would care enough to post this…Celebrity gossip? I think not. More like "Mario's Political Agenda".



  39. 39

    they should have an app to see if a pregnant womans baby is gonna be gay, so they can abort.



  40. 40

    Oh, come on Perez…. It's sarcastic. It's taunting those who think these things are to be "blamed" for homosexuality… I find it hilarious, and I am even someone who is quick to be offended by anti-gay things… the thing is, this in not anti-gay… You're almost as bad as "Don't say gay" in Tennesse, not letting anyone even say the word without attacking them… Ligthen up!



  41. 41

    If this app is not offensive, this must not be:

    IS YOUR BROTHER'S REAL DADDY BLACK?
    1. Does your brother wear a comb in his hair?
    2. Does he listen only to Rap?
    3. Does he speak Ebonics?
    4. Does he wear his pants below his butt?
    5. Does he have 10 pound junk?
    6. Does he have multiple "my baby's mama" girlfriends?
    7. Has he quit school to pursue goal of being a pro basketball player?

    There's more, but you'll have to buy my app to see it.
    And, of course, it's all in fun and not offensive.



  42. 42

    sheesh take it easy mario …. Shouldn't you be busy defecating on children or bullying the troubled Lindsay Lohan……. So who is reinforcing stereotypes here?



  43. 43

    How do you know you're gay AND Perez Hilton?

    1. You are a big fat bitchy gossip queen
    2. You're running a pink website
    3. You also have a fashion blog
    4. Your favourite celebrity is Paris Hilton
    5. Your favourite "musicians" are Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Katy Perry, amongst 20 other similar looking ones.
    The more plastic they are, the more you like'em.
    6. You hate women "au naturel" who refuse to play the fashion game
    7. You like to doodle little hearts over hot guy's crotches in photos
    8. Mama is your best friend

    Get some humour.
