So this girl walks up to another girl and says “Hey, have you heard of the Bechdel Test?”
And the other girl says, “Yeah, my boyfriend was telling me about it the other day!”

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.
Wait… she got fired over her NATURAL hair or HAIR at all in the first place? what the hell is even going on?
He natural hair plus it being short
Man I’m not even going to lie when I applied for my current job I did my interviews with my hair pressed out and as soon as I was hired I started rockin my fro
^^ I got fired for this. The manager claimed that I was violating dress code daily, so I switched from tennis shoes to office shoes(9-10 hour shifts at Macy’s in flipping heels), and they still complained. So I switched from my polo shirts to blouses, they still complained. Then my mom said something that stuck to me: “when you were interviewed, your hair was straight”. So I straightened my hair and then NOTHING. I wore tennis shoes and a polo shirt, and they said /nothing/ about me violating dress code. So I essentially said fuck that and never straightened it again, so they fired me for dress code violation.
I remember this. The guy who she defended herself against on Facebook was a racist asshole.
"Emmitt Vascocu wrote, “the black lady that does the news is a very nice lady.the only thing is she needs to wear a wig or grow some more hair. im not sure if she is a cancer patient. but still its not something myself that i think looks good on tv. what about letting someone a male have waist long hair do the news.what about that."
She had every right to say something back to him because his comments were disgusting. The network claims they fired her because she shouldn’t have personally responded to a viewer on the network’s Facebook, but her response was not rude and, for white people who perhaps don’t know it, educational. I’m glad she moved on to bigger and better things.
