    Why? To give gay bashers targets? To affect getting a job? Finding new partners?

    It's pretty strong evidence of a genetic link...

    I have said this before. Heterosexual Liberals are extremely uncomfortable with Masculine Gay males because Liberals want to know whose gay. So it figures the technology would come from Far Left Stanford University.

    Eventually they'll have a smartphone app so a person can point their phone at someone.

    Its the Liberal version of pink triangles:

    Here's the reference guide chart for the app:

    It's vaguely creepy, but on the other hand I don't see why technology developers have a responsibility to help gay people pass. Racists and misogynists have clear targets, too.

    So you think Masculine Gays are acting and are actually feminine?

    I don't think that gay people genetically look any different from straight people. I think that gay people may be prone to taking pictures differently than straight people on dating sites; perhaps the computer is picking up on this particular trend?

    For example, I found that when a lot of straight guys take selfies then they often take it from very poor angles or have horrible lighting. Many straight guys may think that women find it more appealing for them to look "rough", "serious" or "mean" in the profile pics. I find that gay people use more flattering angles, better lighting and tend to look happier in their profile pics.

    Then maybe the dude in the green shirt needs a new pic.

    I read about something several years (decades?) ago where they have you look at pictures and they have a camera focused on your eyes and for straight guys their pupils dilate when it's a picture of an attractive woman while gay guys pupils dilate when it's an attractive man, in a bathing suit, nude, whatever. This was back when Bill Clinton was president if I remember correctly.

    The pupil dilates when it sees something the brain likes and contracts or stays the same when it's not liked.

    I later read about how they had also done some testing with babies and they discovered that the pupils of babies dilate when shown the face of a woman and contract when shown a man's face. They even did things like show them a picture of a woman with a shaved head and they still recognized the women's faces. I think they got a stronger negative response when the men had beards.

    A lot of people with sharp "gaydar" can simply look at somone's face - without ovserving manorisms or speech - and determing thier sexual orientation because they have "gay face". That's all this program does.

    I guess you're not gay since you don't have "gay face".

    It would be more useful if they can rather use technology to test DNA and figure out if someone might become a serial killer, serial rapist or phaedophile.

    It is only a matter of time before a lunatic can get his hands on a technology like this and use it for genocide and discrimination.
