Poo, bum, willy

Obviously, all radical mothers, particularly those interested in sex-positivity and queer liberation, should read Susie Bright’s blog. A while ago, she was writing about the fact that “clitoris” is banned from Google’s safe search, while “penis” is not. Here is a list of all of the banned words. It also includes “anus”. I guess that’s the final admission that the anus is, in fact, for sex.

I want to see the GoogleMap of the human body. Obviously, it’ll be clothed, because both “nude” and “naked” are banned words (which does at least keep our children safe from Jamie Oliver’s early work). There’s no asshole, though there may be an arsehole, defecation being okay for Brits but not Americans. Oh, it’s as you would expect: “clitoris” is the only banned word which is the medically accepted one for the body part in question. And, this may be an error on the part of the Banned Words blogger, but they seem to have banned a misspelling of “cunnilingus”.

    Would be funny if it wasn’t so ridiculous.
