I do a lot of googling on queer topics, and I noticed yesterday that Google added a little rainbow banner for Pride Month if you search for certain words. It looks like this:
Apparently Google sees nothing worth celebrating in dropping the T:
But everyone can go separate:
But not everyone in the T-community can:
Slurs don't get a rainbow:
"Pride" is too general, but Google knew what I was talking about when I told them why I'm proud:
But the other kind of gay pride is still in the closet:
I may have a problem with "homosexual," but Google doesn't (as it shouldn't):
Google France isn't participating, because who wants to celebrate des sales pédés?
And drag queens are a definitely part of the community, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation:
But the I? Hmm... I do know that many of them don't see themselves are part of the general concept of queer:
Speaking of queer, our daily experiment is approved, but Google gently suggest dropping the "Q."
But us ourselves? We'll have to work harder to become synonymous with the concept of queer.
Brian Juergens at AfterElton.com played around with some words as well. And I found his post on this topic because I googled it.
