After everyone bitched and moaned about the stupidity of the stereotype-ridden Android app, “Is My Son Gay,” Google unilaterally pulled it from their Android Market app store. But here’s something you may not have known: the developer was a gay man.
Openly gay app-trepeneur Christophe de Baran commissioned the program’s development. He developed the program in part to help promote an upcoming comedic novel, also titled “Is My Son Gay?” which treats “difficult moments for families to go through, such as coming out” with “fun and humor.”
The Android Market site still carries other apps like ‘R U Gay Quiz’ and the ‘Gaydar Radar’ which identifies homos based on their pictures. But unlike “Is My Son Gay” both of the aforementioned apps state upfront that their product is a joke.
Not even the ladies of The View found anything worth laughing at in de Baran’s app.
