The "Is My Son Gay?" app, where parents could ostensibly determine
their child's orientation by answering questions on how they dressed and

app posed a total of 20 questions. If the app determined a child would
be heterosexual, parents were told they didn't have to worry over
whether they would have grandchildren. On Monday, the app was apparently
pulled by Google from the Android Market.

angry over. In a statement, he apparently told people to "fight the
right fight" instead of critiquing his invention, which he says was
created "with a fun approach." Read more here.
