Apple Takes Down ‘gay cure’ App

Posted on | May 16, 2011 | No Comments

Apple recently removed a “gay cure” application that has been criticized by many.  The application was created by Exodus International which targeted “homosexual strugglers” and allows users to learn more about Exodus.  The creators maintain that people have a choice to be gay.  However, the app was removed at the Apple Store because Apple believes it violates developer guidelines as being offensive to large groups of people.  See: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2011/03/23/2011-03-23_apple_pulls_gay_cure_app_exodus_international_after_thousands_sign_changeorg_pet.html

Currently, discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation is not itself is not yet protected by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, but this law does makes it illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex. Additionally, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) does not enforce the protections that prohibit discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation.  Please visit the EEOC’s website for more information: www.eeoc.gov/policy/vii.html.
