Google has produced a 20 questions app to allow folks to discern whether or not their son might be gay. Aside from the obvious offensiveness of said app's existence, period, the questions are BEYOND misguided and misleading and wandering right into the realm of hella gross. Said questions are reposted below:
•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 have 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?
So - from this list, we can deduce that boys become gay through 1. divorce, 2. bad relationships with their fathers (cause we all have fathers!), 3. a commitment to personal grooming and 4. prenatal wishing for a girl, Moreover, we can further conclude that ALL straight boys love sports, reading about sports, and are aggressive and lacking in sensitivity.
Are you fucking kidding me, Google? Please promptly get your shit together and move on into the current century.
