Sexist Search Engines







So the United Nations Women Campaign has a new add. Where they take a women’s face and leave her mouth as a search engine box and duplicate the horrible things that come from real searches.
Try it on Google, try it on Bing. I guarantee you find awfulness. I did it myself and was shocked at the gender inequality that is found in something so mundane.

Do it yourself and post the results YOU find in the comments.

When running this search the top six were:

Women Need To
-know their place
-know about men
-stop hating
- be forked
- feel desired
-die
When I searched Women Cannot the tops answers were
- Be priests
- Vote
- Be trusted
- Have it all
- Speak in church
- Sleep
How about searching Women Shouldn’t, also pretty awful
- Fight in combat
- Have rights
- Whistle
- Play sports
- Wear pant
- vote
When running this about men it was an interesting/scary comparison.
Men need to
-feel desired
-be loved
- feel needed
- learn to talk
- grow up
- chase

Men cannot:
- Be left alone
- Get hard
- Build muscle after 35
- Multitask
- Live on bread alone
- Be faithful
Men Shouldn’t
-hit women
-cry
- get married
- pay more for car insurance
- wear women’s clothes
- eat soy
