Whoever thought Internet search engines would be engaged in a battle to the death to show how much they loved the gays?
Okay, “death” might be stretching it. But while The Google is merely changing a blue line to a rainbow line on certain gay-related searches, Yahoooooooooooooooooooooo has gone all out with its own Pride section, featuring gay news, a pride celebration locator, and a historical timeline of the gay civil rights movement.
But what are the other search engines doing? Bing’s got nothing, Ask.com doesn’t care, Mahalo is static, and Wolfram|Alpha “isn’t sure what to do with your input.”
Looks like Yahoo is the clear winner!
Just to get this back on topic: Yahoo is a portal rather than a pure search engine, with pages and pages of original content. It has everything from horoscopes to personals, so it ought to cover Pride as well. Pure search engines only aggregate data, so any gesture they make is out of genuine solidarity.
As for how many of the population is gay; it’s a completely unimportant question.
