Gaydar Device Becomes A Reality

from the finding-love-through-technology dept

Brian wrote in to tell us that someone has created a “Gaydar” device which is a little electronic device (similar to the Japanese LoveGety device) that lets people who are gay or lesbian immediately know that the other person (if they also happen to have a Gaydar) is also a gay or lesbian. The theory is, of course, that it takes the “guesswork” out of figuring out who is gay or lesbian. The fear, though, according to some people quoted in the article, is that it will be used by gay-bashers to find gays to bash.
