For seven years, he’d been an exemplary soldier, rising to the rank of first lieutenant, and now on his way to captain. But there was a problem.

Since 2010, Google has blocked the word bisexual from its auto-complete and Instant Search features so users have to go an extra step to see the millions of results related to bi people, bisexuality, bi community, bisexual resources and bi organizations.”
