    You have too much fun trying to bait people. I wouldn't want to deprive you of such harmless amusement.

    See from the google website:
    Google’s philosophy is to filter no more than necessary, i.e., as little as possible. Google considered adding the capability to filter other controversial content besides pornography, e.g., hate speech, anarchy, bomb making, etc. But these are much more difficult to filter automatically. For example, if you try to filter hate speech, you may filter out sites that discuss hate speech.
    It seems those filters might not be doing much after all, for good reason.

    Nothing wrong with the word "should", just with its misuse, as with anything else.

    Meh, can we use 'need to' instead? (without it taking on the judgemental tone that 'should' has of course!)

    I automatically get redirected to the German version, even if I type in google.com instead of google.de

    "Women should" will come up with:
    Women should
    women shouldn't wear pants
    women should be silent
    women should not speak in church*

    That quote from the 1. Corinthian seems to be searched for A LOT

    Then I tried it in German: "Frauen sollen"
    Nothing! Auto complete works but disappears as soon as ou type in "Frauen" (women). There is no German autocomplete for them. I also tried "Männer sollen" (men should). This is what I got:

    Männer müssen stinken - Men must stink (as in smell bad)
    Männer müssen so sein - Men must be like that
    Männer müssen kämpfen - Men must fight
    Männer müssen lernen dass - Men must learn that

    So it works for men but not for women? That made me curious and I tried it in French:

    Les femmes doivent se taire - Women should shut up
    Les femmes doivent etre soumises - Women should be submissive
    Les femmes doivent savoir - Women should know
    Les femmes doivent rester a la maison - Women should stay at home

    And now the men!

    Les hommes doivent ils se raser - Should men shave
    Les hommes doivent ils etre gouvernés - Should men (as in human beings) be governed
    Les hommes doivent ils se raser les jambes - Should men shave their legs
    Les hommes doivent ils s'épiler - Should men epilate

    Apparently French men are obsessed with their body hair

    Aaand finally, in Spanish:

    Las mujeres deben ser sumisas - Women should be submissive
    Las mujeres deben rasurarse el vello pubico - Women should shave their pubic hair
    Las mueres deben usar velo - Women should carry a veil
    Las mujeres deben predicar - Women should preach

    Los hombres deben tomar acido folico - Men should take folic acid
    Los hombres deben depilarse las piernas - Men should depilate their legs
    Los hombres deben depilarse el vello pubico - Men should depilate their pubic hair
    Los hombres deben ser como el cafe - Men should be like coffee

    Once again with the body hair! I also assume the last two searches for women stem from an interest in theological positions.

    Okay, so why does the German Google version disable autocomplete for "women" but not for men and the French and the Spanish seem okay with it????? I'm scared to think of what it is they might be blocking out.

    No.

    Women should
    Women need to
    Women ought to
    Women must
    Women would do well to

    The problem isn't with any of these expressions; it is with what follows them sometimes.

    Women should quit getting sidetracked by incidental details and focus on the real problems. And so should everyone else.

    'Doivent' = 'must'.

    'Devraient' = 'should'.

    No, a T thing, embraced by rational people the world over.

    A "should" by any other name will feel just as constricting, if it is something we "should" not be expected to do.

    I had: Women should
    have babies before 35
    be equal to men
    not speak bible
    stay at home
    Women should not:
    speak bible
    be president
    speak in church
    be in combat

    The first two made me happy...These are nice and true, but the rest. I noticed, that not speak in church and not read bible are pretty common. This is sad how closeminded the church stays and this the proof.

    #1 result:

    Women should stop inferring that the population of men who make 'women should whatever' searches is for some reason a reliable measurement of how men in general feel about women.
