Can a Website Tell If You’re Gay?

Okay, tell us something we don’t know.

Got a webcam and don’t mind a truly annoying midi loop playing in the background? Then skate on over to Gay Check Online.  The site mentions scientific studies have shown that gay and straight men have differently shaped faces. Take a snap with your webcam and it’ll tell you whether you’re gay or not. Now I didn’t have a heterosexual friend handy to test this thing out with, but it sure had me pegged.

The artists that created the tool say that “Gay Check Online is not a practical tool but a statement: This tool is as ridiculous as homophobia. It is a fun way to deal with the topic while the discussion itself is quite dumb and awkward for all of us.”

Anybody else want to fire up the webcam and share the results to test accuracy?


Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
