Sad as this might sound, I am not really surprised. Most of the Islamic world is not exactly gay-friendly, to put it mildly - even the more secular and liberal countries like Turkey and Lebanon. What's more, the quasi-racist double standards of Western leftists is pretty galling on this issue - Russia has got a lot of flack for its law against the 'promotion of homosexuality', yet even with that law it is still a Shangri-La compared to most African and Islamic countries, which do not get anything like the same systematic criticism.

Back during the Reagan administration, the U.S. government tried to develope a satellite based gaydar system that would cover the contintent of North America, but Congress and the media said it wasn't technically feasilble and a waste of billions of dollars. It's a shame that the U.S. still has our backside exposed to this form of attack.

My question is: Does it just detect gays or does it cover the full LGBTQ spectrum?

2nd question: I noticed that LGBT was recently extended to LGBTQ. I'm hip enough to know that the "Q" stands for Queer, but what's difference between Gay and Queer?

Actually, the Q usually stands for Questioning, someone who thinks they might be LGB or T, but hasn't determined that yet.

Just another delusion Republicans believe in: Creationism, NO climate change (affects business, you know), the little people should pay the taxes, Obama was not born in the U.S., etc, etc, etc, and now this. Boy, you guys are real jerks!

The "Q" is usually used to mean queer, which embraces the role of non-heteronormatives as outsiders and free thinkers.

I've seen the "Q" referred to as "Queer".
Who decides this type of thing; is there an official LGBT asscoiation where members meet once a year in to vote?
Is there a presuptive LGBT thought leader who starts using the new acronym in a blog, and then it gets proliferated in the community and media?

Yes there is; we meet on alternate thursdays (Wearing green, of course) and decide who`s in and who`s out, what acronyms to use, and so on. Next week, we are deciding which of the duggar kids are gay.

Have you noticed that some of the gay boys seem worried that this technology might actually work as intended.

Then they would be outed for sure.

You guys vote to decide who's gay at these meetings?

Do they receive a nomination letter in mail along with details about special healthcare and AAA member discounts if they choose to join?

It cannot work; all It can do is measure physical reactions to stimuli, not the reason for that reaction.
