One day, I was curious to see what I could find and after that, I do not know if my decision was right or wrong. For example, when I wrote «Dominican women» appeared results as:
Featured Dominican women
Dominican women for marriage
Dominican women seeking foreign men
Dominican women unmarried
Dominican women fighting
Dominican women cheating
Dominican women loose
Dominican women without clothes
Dominican women hot
Searching for «Dominican» (woman) was more or less like this:
Dominican dancing bachata
Dominican exotic women
What worries me about these results is the stereotype that they show. It is as if all of us (Dominican women) were a piece of meat waiting to be bought by the highest bidder. As if Google or another Internet search engine was a showcase that exposes the collective thinking.
I also wonder how these images got there. We cannot just refer to the Internet, you also need to think about the women who chose to pose for this pictures and present them to the world.
I hope that reality will change. I would like to see in the future better examples of Dominican women on the web. That when we make that search results like these appear:
Successful Dominican women
Dominican women entrepreneurs
Dominican women fighters
Dominican women workers
Someday we’ll find photos of Dominican writers, political, entrepreneurs, lawyers, good mothers, young meritorious and not just a curvaceous body and a beautiful face.
