Google To Change Arabic Translation Of “Gay”

PinkNews reports that Google has agreed to change the Arabic translation of the word “gay” within Google’s translation tool. Now, I don’t know Arabic, but reportedly, the translation Google provides is equivalent to the word sodomite, which is derogatory. PinkNews says Google has “vowed to ameliorate the issue shortly.”
