Google loves Pride month…
Search engine Google have a habit of putting little tweaks to their search engine’s appearance to mark particular dates or events.
This month, to mark LGBT Pride season, they’ve added a little rainbow flag that appears when you search for the words lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
At BiMedia, we love this!
That said – when you play with this special seasonal feature, it does highlight as you try each of those terms that while when you type in words like ‘lesbian’ or ‘gay’ the search engine’s predictive search kicks in and offers suggestions of what you might be looking for as you type, when you type ‘bisexual’ that doesn’t happen.
It seems google thinks the b-word is a bad word.
Maybe next year they could celebrate LGBT Pride month by losing their hangup about bisexuality?
