Hello,

I wonder why Duckduckgo.com has a Drake as the symbol? Just like Donald Duck, it is kinda weird don't you think because a Duck is a female and a Drake is a male. Also why does Donald not wear pants but when he finish his shower, he is wearing a towel?

My suggestion is, why not make the male into a female or put a male and a female in the symbol with a love symbol or something like that?

I don't like these kind of symbolism to be honnest.

Just a thought and I support you guys, peace!

First, this section is for Instant Answer suggestions only, not for general conversation. Please post comments in the "General Ramblings" section.

Additionally, duck is the common name for a large number of species in the Anatidae family of birds, which also includes swans and geese. A male duck is called a drake and the female duck is called a duck, or in ornithology a hen, so "duck" is both gender specific and non-gender specific. Our us of the term "duck" is correct.
