Google Censored

Google rolled out an amazing new feature. It's called Instant Search. As you type words into the search bar, it populates corresponding page links and changes with every word you type. Amazing, right?

There are activists in an uproar that, when you type phrases such as "faggot" or "lesbian", no page links show up until you press OK. When you search for the word "fag", this is not the case.

Is Google keeping it safe for the kiddies or should we be upset that terms such as "lesbian" and "faggot" may bring up gross porn, but the word "fag", in US terms, is deemed ok to search without that extra OK step?
