Intuitive text - offensive

When I type "big" in a text, the intuitive suggestions for my next word are "ass", "tits" or "boobs". This is offensive.  It's not like these are words I usually use in messaging.

Has anyone had access to your phone recently? Either they could have used these words frequently or someone added them as a joke. You can clear the suggestions dictionary via the Keyboard settings in your phone.

I meant where your phone is auto correcting the word. Sorry about the confusion.

Well that's an interesting choice for Google. Has it changed yet as you correct it to other suggestions?

You can check going into language and input, selecxt keyboard, pick the one you're using, and enable "block offensive words." Then you shouldn't be offended anymore.

I just think it's a weird thing to happen. What an odd selection of words.

Hahaha it is weird indeed, but I guess those are the words that google think are going to match with big. You could change keyboards for SwiftKey for example and then you'll get suggested less offensive words like you can see in the screenshot below.

With swift key you can link your email and social media to it, so it learns what you type

My Moto offers the same, right out of the box. 
Samsung offers deal, bang, and brother.

My iPhone offers data, thanks, and time.

Must be a Moto thing.

Cool that MM David is Moto user. OP might be a Moto user as well? That's an amusing word suggestion...When I type "big" it suggests "sales/tits/deal". Still got one offensive word in there. I guess Google has us semi-personalized with suggestions also based on what most internet users type into their web search?
