Google Instant: Gays OK, Lesbians Blocked

1ef35baa55d398e0a38fdd5caac4e85f?offset=

Goggle launched its new 'instant' search feature this week.  Type in a search term and Google will make suggestions and update the results as you type.  

It's fun to play with, if a little annoying.  However, the new feature appears to have an obscenity filter; type in any of George Carlin's 7 dirty words and Google stays mute. Fair enough. Here's the kicker: Google apparently considers "lesbian" and "bisexual" to be obscenities.  If you type "gay," the system will make suggestions, but try  "lesbian" or "bisexual," and Google censors the results.

Gay:

Google suggestion - Gay

 

Lesbian:

Google search - lesbian

 

Bisexual:

Google searhc - bisexual
