The ad for the French app.   (

(Newser) – "Is my son gay?" is apparently a burning question in France. So much so that a new smartphone app there promises to let moms know after they answer 20 questions, reports Radio France International in a post spotted by the Awl. Sample questions on the app sold by Android Market: Does he like football, read the sports pages, go to musicals, pay extra attention to grooming ... oh, you get the picture. Moms who get a yes answer are encouraged to "accept it," while those in the no camp "have nothing to worry about."
