Google hides Gay flag

Happy Pride month, all.

Seems Google is afraid

of us!

Google hides Gay

Pride rainbow

John D. Sutter
If you Google terms like "gay" or "homosexuality" this month, a rainbow pops up by the search bar.
   
 (CNN) -- Google creates "doodles” for
all kinds of random occasions.
The search engine changed -- or doodled --
the logo on its home page in celebration of
the painter Paul Cezanne's 172nd birthday;
Robert Louis Stevenson's 160th birthday;
the first day of school in Poland; and
Pac-Man's 30th anniversary. All of these,
with the exception of Poland, which
appeared only in that country, were
automatically visible to everyone who
visited Google.com.
   
But for Gay Pride Month -- which, in case
you didn't notice the parade in the city
center, is happening now -- the company
took a much less visible approach.
It's one that's stirred up criticism from
the gay community.
There's never been an actual Google
Doodle in honor of Gay Pride. Instead,
during June, a little rainbow pops up
next to Google's search bar only when
users search for certain "pride-related"
terms, including, "gay," "lesbian,"
"homosexuality," "LGBT,"
"marriage equality," "bisexual" and
"transgender."
"During the month of June, Google is
celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender (LGBT) Pride," the company
said in an e-mail. "For some Pride-related
search queries, we are showing a rainbow
at the end of the search bar."
   
So why hide this feature beneath specific
searches?
A company spokeswoman did not provide
specifics. (End of CNN story)
   
Shout out at Google, folks.
Stop being second class citizens!
