Colonialism: Google Now Unveils a Global Campaign to Support Gay Marriages
Google is upping its very stupid trampling on our ideals. If it were for Google, every community in the world should behave the same way and not have their own ideals which they expect to be respected. Google is showing lots of disregard of our diversity by the latest campaign they have launched called “Legalize Love”. The campaign will be pushed online as well as through Google’s 60 offices worldwide including Africa.
While Google claims that the campaign is not about legalizing same-sex marriages but supporting workers living in countries which criminalizes same sex marriages, Google’s intentions can rightly be seen even by the most primitive of eyes.
The campaign started in Poland and Singapore but will be eventually spread out to every city in which Google has an office. A statement from Google reads:
Though our business and employees are located in offices around the world, our policies on non-discrimination are universal throughout Google. We are proud to be recognised as a leader in LGBT inclusion efforts, but there is still a long way to go to achieve full equality. Legalise Love is our call to decriminalise homosexuality and eliminate homophobia 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. 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.
I believe that Google should cease imposing its ideals on any of us. The company has denied that it wished to do that but their intention is very evident from the emotive blog post they published to oppose a California amendment that would ban same-sex marriage. The amendment later passed. The company also ran a Doodle which supported Gay marriage on Valentines Day.
Google should respect our diversity.
