Wow Google, thank you for the stunning support! The effort you put into representing this cause is fantastic! Like, wow, this doesn’t even compare to what you did for the DW 50th!
I understand that visibility is most certainly important for a cause, and that this is no exception- but as a girl who just got out of abusive household last year, I believe I understand why Google’s support is so discreet. It’s the same reason why the abusive relationship website “When Georgia Smiled" has an escape button that wipes all traces of the website. Hundreds of abusers are instantly inflamed by any sort of media that might imply that what they’re doing is wrong and that their victims might need help.
And while I think we’d all like more media attention towards the consequences of violent assaults against women, what we need to keep in mind is that those with abusive nature (even if they’re not currently in a relationship) could be easily angered by a colorful banner that “shames them”, and might endanger the women around them. I’ll be the last person to imply that violence against women doesn’t need more coverage- but not all causes are so easily assisted by a media blitz.
I really wish YouTube and Google had never teamed up. It’s caused way too much confusion for me….
It seriously breaks my heart that this is the kind of world we live in.
if you were expecting me to be disappointed when googling “snakes in hats” then you couldn’t be more wrong
Everyone should start doing this

Worth a shot.
My professor actually recommended this!
Google is definitely a woman, it starts suggesting things before you can even finish your sentence.
That must mean Bing is a man, tries to convince people it’s superior and does a horrible job with pleasing its user.
