A dictionary has been created for gender and, it seems, for some other matters too.
Gender Finder, an online tool for finding gender synonyms in Google search results, has been launched.
The service is being launched on Google’s website as part of the search giant’s efforts to get more people to be more inclusive.
Google has long had a gender diversity problem, but the new site adds a new dimension to that.
Google’s Genderfinder also has a number of other features.
The site shows gender-neutral or gender-sensitive images, such as those for people of colour, people with disabilities, people from underrepresented groups, and people from a wide range of age groups.
A number of features have also been made available, such a “Search for” feature that allows users to type in the name of a search result, and a “Tag” feature for the “machination” of images.
Search results include “macho”, “woman” and “man”, but Google has said it will allow the “male” and the “female” terms.
It’s a move that is welcome news for people with a lot of experience with gender.
In a blog post last week, the director of gender studies at the University of Queensland, Dr Karen O’Malley, said she felt “a little bit sad” that Google had taken a step in the right direction.
“This is a great thing, and I’m hopeful that this new tool will help make the world a better place,” she wrote.
“But I am also worried about the consequences.
There’s still a lot more work to do.”
The Gender Finder is an important step towards greater inclusion, she said, but more needs to be done.
O’Malley said she was worried about how the Gender Finder will work in practice.
“The idea of having a search tool for people who identify as women is a very good start, but there’s still work to be made,” she said.
Gender Finder has been available to users for a couple of months.
Users can choose to use a combination of male and female search terms.
If they want to search for people in a specific gender, then they can enter the person’s name.
But for the people who do not want to use the male or female terms, the site can also search for the term “march”, “marshall” or “marge”.
“We’re going to continue to refine the search to make it as inclusive as possible,” O’Brien said.
“We’ll be constantly working to improve it.”
Google’s new Gender Finder has a feature that will allow users to input a name and gender to create a new result.
For example, the new Genderfinder will let you enter “Aunt Maggie” and then input “Jane”.
This will then show a “tag” for the result.
Once the result is created, you can click the “Add” button to create an editable link to it.
To search for a person in a certain gender, you would enter “Jane”, “Aun Maggie” or even “Amber”.
“It’s still early days, but we’re really excited about how Gender Finder works,” Google’s Sarah Eriksson wrote on the Genderfinder website.
