Wingnuts are going to have to boycott Google, not that they’ve ever shown a real propensity for acquiring information in the first place. Why? Google’s new campaign, “Legalise Love,” is not only pro-gay and anti-homophobia, it’s also international:
Google will launch its “Legalise Love” campaign at a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) conference in London today, firstly targeting Singapore and Poland to decriminalise homosexuality and campaigrights the recognition of same-sex couples.
The company explained on its website that it is calling to eliminate homophobia and decriminalise homosexuality around the world.
“At Google, we encourage people to bring their whole selves to work. In all of our 60 offices around the world, we are committed to cultivating a work environment where Googlers can be themselves and thrive,” the company said. “We also want our employees to have the same inclusive experience outside of the office as they do at work, and for LGBT communities to be safe and to be accepted wherever they are.”
“Singapore wants to be a global financial centre and world leader, and we can push them on the fact that being a global centre and a world leader means you have to treat all people the same, irrespective of their sexual orientation,” Google’s head of diversity Mark Palmer-Edgecumbe is reported to have said.
The article points out that, simply because it IS so huge, people will have a hard time boycotting things like Google, whose voice on this matter will be heard loud and clear.
