It’s true, there’s an app for even that.

A new smart phone program promises to help parents determine their son’s sexuality in a modified version of “20 questions.”

On Tuesday night, CBS 2’s Sean Hennessey took the app controversy to the experts, and you.

Does your son like musical comedies, Madonna, or football? Those are just some of the questions posed in a controversial app aimed at mothers who want to know, “Is my son gay?”

“It’s not good,” said Queens resident Joanne Wilson. “No, I wouldn’t be a fan of it.”

Few moms Hennessey spoke to are fans of the new app, sold in Google’s Android market, which asks a mother 20 questions including: Does their son dress well? Is his best friend a girl? Are you divorced? Depending on the answers, the program may tell you not to look the other way because your son is gay, so accept him.

Eliza Byard, executive director of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Educational Network, called the app ridiculous and horrifying.
