Teenager from India invents device that can convert breath to speech
A high school student from India has invented a device that can convert a person’s breath into speech, to give millions of people around the world suffering from speech impediment a ‘voice’ for the first time.
Sixteen-year-old Arsh Shah Dilbagi has developed a new technology called ‘TALK’, which is a cheap and portable device to help people who are physically incapable of speaking express themselves. Right now, 1.4 percent of the world’s population has very limited or no speech, due to conditions such as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), locked-in syndrome (LIS), Encephalopathy (SEM), Parkinson’s disease, and paralysis.

His name is Arsh Shah Dilbagi and he’s 16 years old. Gettin tired of sensationalized “mystery baby from a country where people are brown does a science thing!” articles. Use peoples names, don’t act so surprised when people of color are geniuses.

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.

This is why we need feminism.

I just found a video called Homestuck SUCKS. It’s for gay homo men who have no life.  Probably

99% of the time he just sounds like an actual homestuck fan ironically bashing the comic and I really love it.  Especially the “probably” on the end of the title.

(a note // since my tags won’t necessarily carry through, as the title suggests the video contains an actual ton of slurs. the same one actually. over and over)

No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!
The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html

"But womenz are so oppressed! "

You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.

yeah I mean when men beat their women it’s probably because she overcooked dinner or something what a hoe she totally deserves it just like this guy

Just like all those 18 other people she assaulted instigated her! </sarcasm>
Open your fucking eyes.

quietly scoring out all previous comments because they’re all apparently made by either anti-sj’s/anti-feminists or generally ignorant people
let’s put it this way: this is one of many reasons why we need feminism. We’ll state first that statistically, women are beaten more often than men. But let’s continue. Women are generally considered frailer, weaker, more helpless sex, incapable of doing any sort of damage to a person that isn’t emotional. Meanwhile, men are generally considered dominant in a relationship. If anyone’s to do the beating, it’s expected to be them. It’s even just another masculine thing to do.
when we apply these expectations to a relationship where a woman is domestically assaulting a man, the man isn’t taken seriously because the gender roles we enforce on him dictate that “he should have been able to defend himself”, “he’s a sissy”, “she can’t have hurt him that much” and so on. And then the woman is too often let off because “she can’t have done any real damage”, “female on male violence isn’t serious”, “women can’t be dangerous” and etc.
we need feminism so that all genders can be equal, and equality means that when a man beats a woman, that man should be brought to justice, and vice versa. After 18 assaults, Yasmin Thomas should have been convicted with a significantly harsher sentence and that’s all there really is to it.

Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.

Male eating disorder awareness ~

Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.

I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.

Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.
