    Coco Austin almost qualifies for this article too. I was searching for the Adwords rep Coco. Honest! ;)

    Sexual suggestive =/= Nudity

  • http://twitter.com/AnthonyFColeman Anthony F. Coleman

    I hate to argue but how is this different from say searching Triple H? He’s topless and wearing a bikini covered in oil in the Knowledge Graph images.

    The nudity in the example above is hardly pornographic. If this is a case of what is visually acceptable for the PG-13 demographic, should we request Google start censoring works of art as well (we can see Michelangelo’s David genitalia after all)?

    Gender-biases based on nudity is institutionalized sexism and men crying out to protect women’s modesty (images or otherwise) should insulting to the equal sex.

    She had gotten decent wage 70 years ago. It was her work. So it’s her trouble today when she sees herself in Internet or newspapers.

    I guess you need to improve this sentence ” She is married with two children and lives in California.” :)

    Mom saw these on a previous search for some actress. I told her to disable it until they fixed the problem.

    It seems like Google removed that image from Knowledge Graph!!
    Oh hang on, they removed the image from the index too :p

    In the US, state laws allow for men to walk around with no shirts on. State laws don’t allow for women to do the same. You can argue equality, censorship, sexism, etc., all you want, but Google is bound to follow the laws in the areas where it does business.

    Beyond the law — perhaps because of it — our society also views topless females as indecent for public display, but not topless males. If Google ignores societal mores like this, its market share will go way down in a hurry.

    It looks like she posed nude for Playboy in 1972, so whether or not these pictures pop up would probably depend on the personal settings.

    not in Ontario they don’t, topless is legal for women and men :)

    Are you sure this isn’t related to personalization?

    The thing is, if that nude photo is not from the movie in which she was Oscar nominated and it is from several DECADES ago, how does that make it a relevant search result. What does that photo tell me, the web surfer about the now 70-year-old former actress?

    I really don’t understand all the fuzz about a picture of some woman’s breasts. It’s very weird to hear people make a problem of that. A call for censorship on nakedness, I wouldn’t expect in 2013.

    If she posed for Playboy in the 70s, this picture is certainly relevant.

    Now I’m curious as to their algorithm for return the main knowledge graph image. Is it based on volume of clicks on the image, popularity of that image across multiple sites, or something else?
