Google searches are sexist

25 Oct

Really, there’s nothing too stupid for feminists and their enablers to not bitch about:

The auto-complete suggestions on Google searches are often good for a laugh, but they can also provide some measure of insight into the scary collective psyche of the Internet. And a new series of ads from the United Nations uses these auto-complete results in an effort to demonstrate just how pervasive some sexist attitudes are.

The ads each feature a photo of a different woman with her mouth covered over by what the UN claims are actual Google search results for various phrases about women.

For instance, one search that starts with “Women need to” is auto-completed with stone-age sentiments like “be put in their place,” and “be disciplined,” while simply typing in “Women should” auto-completed with suggestions like “be slaves” and “not speak at church.”

“The ads are shocking because they show just how far we still have to go to achieve gender equality,” says the copy writer from the Dubai-based agency that created the ads for the UN. “They are a wake up call, and we hope that the message will travel far.”

Clearly the algorithms and search sub-routines running on the Google website need to be sent back to sensitivity training for re-education. There will not be true equality in this world until man and machine alike resist the urge to notice the obvious.

Anyway, for additional laughs, here’s the list of sexist things Google is giving us:

1. Women should:
“not be in combat”
“stay home”
“not preach”
“not speak in church”
“be seen and not heard”

Men should:
“always pray”
“not get married”
“wear makeup”
“pay for dates”
“be what they seem”

2. Women shouldn’t:
“be in combat”
“be cops”
“go to college”

Men shouldn’t:
“wear shorts”
“wear flip flops”
“be jealous”
“hit women”

3. Women cannot:
“be pastors”
“have it all”
“teach men”
“find husbands”

Men cannot:
“be feminists”
“be trusted”
“get HIV from women”
“pick up chair”
“live without women”

4. Women need to:
“shut up”
“grow up”
“be wanted”
“feel safe”
“know about men”

There’s nothing you can say to a feminist that will change her mind about any of this. It has to be seen, felt, and experienced over and over again by her, her friends, and her family before she’ll even consider changing her mind; the wall of ignorance and unbadthink surrounding her precious belief in the innate and intrinsic equality of all people everywhere can’t be overcome by mere reason alone. I mean, when you’re arguing about a search engine being sexist…you’re not exactly dealing with the right-side of the intellectual bell-curve here.
