Photos of women of different ethnicities were used with Google autocomplete images across their mouths. The searches included fragment sentences:
• Women cannot . . .
• Women shouldn’t . . .
• Women need to . . .
• Women should . . . .
The Google autocomplete fill in that women should “stay at home, be slaves, be in the kitchen, not speak in church.”
Or that women need to “be put in their place, know their place, be controlled, be disciplined.”
Independent Google autocomplete searches yielded similar results, although they were slightly different than the ones depicted in the pictures presented in the UN campaign.
To be fair, a search for men need to yielded the autocomplete: “grow up, feel needed, ejaculate.”
Christopher Hunt, campaign creator, explained that “this campaign uses the world’s most popular search engine (Google) to show how gender inequality is a worldwide problem. The adverts show the results of genuine searches, highlighting popular opinions across the world wide web.”
Each campaign photo states they are “actual Google search on 09/03/13.”
Mainstream media (MSM) has quickly pounced to turn this campaign into a commentary on how the implementation of more political correctness is the answer for the “sexism behind Google searches.”
In 2006, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon allocated $125 million annually to the ‘start-up” that became UN Women.
Through the adaptation of UN resolution 64/289 Ban stated that the international community was now empowered to “promote gender equality, expand opportunity, and tackle discrimination around the globe.”
Indeed the mission of UN Women is to:
• Formulate policies, global standards and norms
• Implement standards
• Provide technical/financial support for countries “to forge effective partnerships with civil society”
• Hold member states accountable to the UN system of commitments on gender equality
• Monitor member states to determine progress in adhering to international standards
The idea of political correctness originates from the term colloquialism that was coined by mid – 20th century Communists and Socialists, and then later used by the Progressive Left to denote sexism or racism by claiming a person’s conduct was “not politically correct”.
Stalin had a dogmatic application of the term political correctness when used in conjunction with debates between members of the Communist and Socialist parties crossed the “party line”.
As described , “the term ‘politically correct’ was used disparagingly, to refer to someone whose loyalty to the CP line overrode compassion, and led to bad politics. It was used by Socialists against Communists, and was meant to separate out Socialists who believed in equalitarian moral ideas from dogmatic Communists who would advocate and defend party positions regardless of their moral substance.”
Political correctness was utilized to condemn citizens who did not follow the crowd of feminists and progressives who saw an opportunity to force new changes by socially programing defiance out of the equation.
Simply to question the current standing of relations between men and women will produce accusations of racism and political incorrectness.
By the 1990s, political correctness has become a household term with the majority of the American population policing themselves . Through the advent of multi-culturalism, this phrase became cause for accusations of hate speech.
In the end, socially acceptable terms are now common place as upheld by the prevailing mob mentality:
• Mentally retarded became intellectually challenged
• Gender-neutral terms such as firefighter replaced fireman
• Value-free terms describe physical disabilities
• Value-free cultural terms
To have free speech and free thoughts controlled, unless the speaker or thinker is using the verbiage approved by society as dictated by the international community is now a reality.
A wave of cultural Marxism has crept into the minds of the masses who repeat the same ideology expounded by public schools, established universities, Hollywood movies, plot-lines to popular books and religious philosophy.
The shift of social consciousness has been incrementally implanted, yet its over-all stranglehold on the minds of the individuals within the collective is evident in this campaign initiated by UN Women.
