Homophobic Technology?


TechnologyI don’t think technology leans toward straight or gay, but apparently there is the occasional homophobic software. I wouldn’t believe this was true if I hadn’t seen it myself.

Did that website just call me a phag?

Imagine my surprise when Geektools’ (a site I use often for WHOIS look ups) verification software called me a phag. Now it may not be homophobic. It may just be belligerent and dislike me – most technology doesn’t.
