Google autocomplete

The guardian has a funny article on google autocomplete: "Google's autocomplete spells out our darkest thoughts"

"It is a truth algorithmically acknowledged that a man needs to ejaculate and a woman needs to be put in her place.

Perturbed by the prejudice of the previous sentence? You should be. But don't shoot the messenger, particularly as that messenger is from the United Nations. An ad campaign developed for UN Women, reveals just how pervasive discrimination against women is through the use of genuine Google search suggestions."
