iPhone turned Russian Gay!!

A Russian man has launched a lawsuit against Apple, claiming an iPhone app turned him gay.
He says this comes after an incident involving GayCoin crypto-currency.
Saying he suffered moral harm, he is asking for one million rubles (£12,000), according to a copy of the complaint seen by the news agency, AFP.
Homosexuality was decriminalised in Russia in 1993, but anti-gay prejudice is still widespread.
In 2013, Russia passed legislation banning the spreading of what it described as gay propaganda.
This officially bans the "promotion of non-traditional lifestyles to minors" but in effect outlaws LGBT activism. A number of campaigners have been attacked and killed in the past year.
So what's happened?
In a suit filed on 20 September, it is claimed a crypto-currency called "GayCoin" was delivered via a smartphone app, rather than the Bitcoin he had ordered.
Crypto-currency is basically virtual money - like an online version of cash - and Bitcoin and GayCoin are some of those currencies
According to the complaint, the GayCoin crypto-currency arrived with a note saying: "Don't judge until you try".
"I thought, in truth, how can I judge something without trying? I decided to try same-sex relationships," the complainant wrote.
"Now I have a boyfriend and I do not know how to explain this to my parents."
He adds that his "life has been changed for the worse" and he "will never become normal again".
Apple "pushed" him "towards homosexuality through manipulation", he claims.
"The changes have caused me moral and mental harm."
Sapizhat Gusnieva says the company "has a responsibility for their programmes" despite the alleged exchange taking place on a third-party app.
The court will hear the complaint on 17 October, according to information on its website.
Apple has not yet responded to Newsbeat's request for comment.

The difference is voiced/voiceless fricatives in those pairs. That's a BIG difference, unless you are stone deaf.

Affect/effect

Totally different sounding words if the first one is 'affect' as in 'flat affect'. I was being pedantic with that one, I know.

Re: iPhone turned Russian Gay!!
E.g., in my speech, when I say "drawer" meaning a home for socks, it is a homophone of "draw". But when I say "drawer", meaning someone who draws, it isn't.

I'm pretty sure a Geordie would use the two-syllable version of "drawer" in both cases.

Re: iPhone turned Russian Gay!!
Just because they're not homophones when said with one accent, it doesn't mean they're not homophones when said with another.

A longer article goes on about that .

Seems reasonable. I once stabbed someone in the face. I wasn't going to but when I looked at his Nike trainers I heard a voice saying "just do it".
