Users can still type any dirty word onto an Android screen themselves, but must do so the traditional way

Pretty sure there's a checkbox in settings for disabling this, along with enabling other dictionaries and adding custom words.

I would assume the words are blocked in the event a youngster got a hold of the device.

Speaking as an Android device owner, what is this 'intercourse' you speak of?

It's to prevent other words being auto-corrected to those, nothing actually stops the user from typing them in.

i think it is kinda stupid that they would remove any words from the predictive text, they should just allow the whole dictionary and deal with it. It is not your phone's job to scold you when you are doing something stupid.

 

Also before anyone goes off half colked it is not just Google that does this. Everyone does it.

Annoying, but somewhat understandable given that it could autocorrect to a swear word which obviously wouldn't be "family friendly". Same thing seems to happen with Swiftkey as well. Fortunately an easy feature to disable.

Oh good, now we have Google being the king over what words are "bad" and further sheltering people. This is stupid. If the word is in the dictionary, it should be in the keyboard dictionary. If it didn't want to suggest a "bad word", then I could see that, but having to force it to accept it over other suggestions is ridiculous. This is what our world has come to. We have to have someone protect us from words now. That's so ridiculous.

Lots of services filter words.  Nothing new in the tech industry.  If Google didnt do this, first time a kid sees the word ****, then people will be upset at Google for not filtering the words.

 

That is true, even though most kids curse worse than many adults that I know.
