Google Image Search Freezing With Anime Porn

P Koester posted on Google+ that when you search for the term [freezing] in Google Image Search you are not shown ice or snow or cold people - instead you are shown Asian cartoon, anime porn.

Not just a few images but the vast majority of the images that come up are anime porn.

Here is a censored picture:

Google Image Search Freezing With Anime Porn

One person explained why:

Freezing, and Freezing vibration are somewhat alright anime. The first series has way more nudity. There's no good reason either because their clothing is manifest by their thoughts like some kind of digital camouflage. So it's kind of awkward. I liked it, but I wouldn't recommend it to most.

Indeed, this is awkward. Not sure how this happened but I bet Google will fix it soon.

Oh yes, my SafeSearch is set to on.

interesting. It shows, that it's impossible to filter all stuff out with an algo. From this point of view Google did a really good job.

Little things fall through the cracks and seem to get patched up pretty quickly when it comes to safe search. I am amazed at how well it works, considering how everything thing seems to have a porn connection somehow. There is an interesting debate to be had about the general prudishness of people and their reactions to seeing a breast or penis, but social evolution happens...if Google was around in the 1800s they would be censoring out a woman's calf from searches about baby cows.

Technically, it's called Manga and I'm not sure there's that much porn in the images (at least, I don't see any).
