Adweek reports that Madison Avenue has begun using "Sassy Gay Friend" imagery to sell products, and electronic media is now mining stereotypes for profit, too: There's a new smartphone app called “Is Your Son Gay?” It digs up male effeminacy myths so damn old, nobody's heard them in years!

Masculine women and feminine men going about their daily lives aren’t entertainers putting on a show for the public; and the ostracism, vilification and hate-motivated violence they suffer sure isn’t anything to snicker at. God did not put gender-neutral human beings on this Earth to serve as anybody’s cheap source of amusement . . . not even their own!
