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

created "with a fun approach." Read more here.
