A controversial app which reckons it can determine whether your son is gay or not has been removed form the Android Marketplace by Google.

Techland says the move came after a Twitter campaign by Allout.org, an activist LGBT website.

In a statement from AllOut.org co-founder Andre Banks celebrating the app’s removal, it was called “outrageous and only [serving] to further negative stereotypes and homophobia.” The organization had led a campaign that saw hundreds of members tweet the message “Demand that @Google & #Android dump homophobic ‘Is My Son #Gay?’ app NOW, no excuses! #LGBT”.
