Stop showing results for "worst" when the word "gayest" is searched.

Google is an enormously influential company. By automatically including the word "worst" in the presentation of search results as a synonym when the word "gayest" is entered, this organization is blatantly encouraging gay shaming culture. Those who actually intend the word to be pejorative have their bigotry validated when their politically incorrect search yields the results they originally set out for. It reinforces the idea that gay shaming is acceptable. Such ignorance cannot be tolerated.

Stop showing results for "worst" when the word "gayest" is searched.

Sincerely,

      Completely offends thousands of people's lives, making the way you live synonymous with such negative words like "worst" and "ugly"

      Because I am gay, and Google equating "gayest" with "worst" is demeaning to me as a person. I am a human and I will NOT be treated this way.

      The sooner we show new generations that synonymizing "gay" with "stupid" or "bad" will not be tolerated, the sooner we can eradicate the intolerance that holds us back as a society.

      The word gay shouldn't be used in that manner, and is offensive to homosexuals (and heterosexuals aswell) when it's used as a term for negative uses.
