Well, this is just a wee bit creepy.
A new spyware company claims it can help parents determine whether their son is gay.
The company Fireworld recently posted an article, along with a picture of actor Colton Haynes, to its French website claiming it has software that can help uncover “clues” that might indicate whether one’s son is a homosexual.
The list includes: He’s shy, he loves diva singers, his hygiene is impeccable, he pays close attention to his attire, he’s never been on a date with a girl, he’s not into in football, and he has a piecing in either his right ear, eyebrow, or lip.
Parents who suspect their son might be gay are being encouraged to download the spyware ASAP and then hack into their child’s computer or phone to discover “your son’s orientation as quickly as possible.”
The website urges:
You will simply install a special program on your son’s computer. This will then start to monitor the entire activity of the PC. For example, to go back the history of the websites visited, everything that has been typed on the keyboard, even recover the passwords.
The spyware specifically scans for any visits to “gay forums.” It also analyzes his personal Facebook profile to see if he’s messaged “other gay boys.”
If that’s not creepy enough, the site continues:
If your son is gay you may never be grandparents and you will not have the happiness of knowing your grandchildren. Unfortunately, on this point you must not be selfish. If your child is gay, he can not help because it is not a choice on his part.
The company says even if a your son is gay, you should “accept him as he is.” It also states that spying on a computer other than your own without permission is technically illegal, but there are some instances where it “may be legal.”
