Google has deleted the controversial Is My Son Gay? app from its Android market.

The Mon Fils Est-Il Gay? French language app determined a boy's sexuality after asking the user 20 questions pertaining to masculinity, such as, “Does he like football?” and “Does he care how he dresses?” It sold for 99 Euro cents, or about $1.34.

Google took action after gay rights group launched a Twitter protest in which hundreds of members tweeted, “Demand that @Google & #Android dump homophobic 'Is My Son #Gay? app NOW, no excuses! #LGBT.”

“We are pleased that Google developers have heard the voice of the LGBT community and pulled the app,” said Andre Banks, co-founder of “Apps such as these are outrageous and only serve to further negative stereotypes and homophobia.”

The developer of the app, Emmene-moi, confirmed to Australia's Six Billion Stories that Google had deleted its app. Earlier the developer had defended its product by saying the gay test was for entertainment purposes only.
