Gay and Lesbian Definition According to Google

Have you ever wondered how search engines define and explain the meaning of the words "gay" and "lesbians"?

Google's language-scraping service offered up the very appropriate alternatives including "poof" and "faggot" as replacements for the word gay.

Those words may have been altered at this time after it was revealed last year, but it did not change the fact that that is how majority of the people really define the word "gay." There might be more neutral terms, but it will no be 'politically correct' to ignore the real meaning that the majority associates it with.

Faggot, often shortened to fag, is a pejorative term used chiefly in North America primarily to refer to a gay man. Alongside its use to refer to gay men in particular, it may also be used as a pejorative term for a "repellent male" or a homosexual person of either gender.

Its use has spread from the United States to varying extents elsewhere in the English-speaking world through mass culture, including film, music, and the Internet.

Fortunately, the most appropriate meanings to homosexuals are still accessible when the word gay is translated from English into Spanish, Portuguese and French.

Google also was able to use the right kinds of words in the translation of the word lesbian from English into Spanish, seeing as the term "bulldyke" – which is often used by everyone – is offered up as a synonym for a homosexual woman.
