Apparently, the tech giant is very upset with people discussing sex on its Android OS. You can notice in the latest version of Android that the predictive text will fail to recognize a number of words, including “sex”, “intercourse” or “screwing”.
The experts have found an “obsessive” and “baffling” list of 1,400 words banned by Google. The list includes such words as “coitus” and other medical and anatomical terms. It seems that Google shows a surprising discomfort with sexuality, reproductive health and undergarments.
For some reason, the list also contains words “geek” and “Chromebook”, though the experts would have thought that the company would have liked the former and would want to promote the later.
The users are able to type any of these words manually, but they can’t use predictive text – so they just have to write every letter, from start to finish. The company will have a good go at trying to censor the word “condom”, for “condition” if you let it – this move would have the backing of the conservative elements of the Roman Catholic church, which is against that sort of thing. So, if you want to be able to ask your girlfriend to buy a pack of condoms whenever she gets a chance, you better go into the app’s settings menu and disable the word-blocking filter.
It is unclear why Google is up to this bizarre Victorian censorship. They won’t be able to protect kids from seeing such words – instead, they will make them type from start to finish in the first place. If the company is just trying to censor in order to make religious wing nuts in the United States happy, it will find that it is starting an ever-increasing filtering spiral that can result in it being as oppressive and autocratic as China.

|Google Filters Sex Words from Android...lolz..While we see the funny side of this story, it could be a more than a little hindrance when you’re in the middle of an intense conversation. So you can always turn off the filter to block offensive words in the keyboard setting....lol i guess Google is doing us and themselves a favour by banning the geek. They are trying to wipe this from the culture.....haha lolz Well, now I know why no one has ever text'ed me of a panty raid....AMD is forbidden word good to know wtf!!|
|I reverse searched a Kokoro Connect image yesterday and at the bottom of every results page it said "Suspected child abuse content has been removed from this page." - So they're already blocking "lolis" lol|
|@3 that "suspected child abuse" thing isnt saying much ive gotten it a few times when i have searched for movie titles the ones i am tired of are those damn chilling effects ones it seems you cant search for anything anymore without getting those|
|I absolutely agree with google and I say that as responsible insane christians that we should add words that we would like to see banned forthwith - let me start:|
1 - Flaps
2 - Knob
3 - Cocks, Pussys and asses
4 - Hard
5 - Floppy
6 - Everyone called Richard ( in case of contraction)
7 - Contraction
8 - Darwin
9 - Fcuk
