Google Search shows girls hostel for ‘bitches near me’, fixes later

Bitches near me, A glitch in the Google Search showed women’s hostels, paying guest options and even girls’ schools on searching for ‘bitches near me’. Google Maps also showed similar results on searching for the same. Google fixed the glitch after several users posted screenshots of Google Search and Google Maps online, with a user saying, “Google needs to fix this. Not funny.”

Want to find bitches near you? Search Google.

So why would Google do this? The answer is simple. Its algorithm felt that bitches could be a term used for women, and hence showed results that should have shown up had the term ‘women’ been searched for instead.

This isn’t the first time Google searches have revealed negative stereotypes about women.

A Wired article dated February 2018 points out how if you search for ‘feminists are’ on Google, its autocomplete suggestion fills in the word sexist, which then becomes the phrase ‘feminists are sexist’. #Awkward.
