Meet The 14-Year-Old Girl Who Developed A Low-Cost Water Purification System | FastCompany

The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire. After seeing children in India drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool, she decided, in her words, “to find a solution to the global water crisis.” And then she actually made some progress towards that goal, developing a solar-powered water purification system.

She is the future

Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?

The Tomb Raider comment pisses me off too because like... 'look at all these badass cool as ice men with gruff voices and stubble, they dont have problems doing shit' and then the trailer at E3 for the Tomb Raider game 'oh look Lara is seeing a psychiatrist she is so vulnerable look at this vulnerable side to her' because I mean come on shes a WOMAN shes GOTTA be super vulnerable, am I right????? ugh

yeah it’s a massive problem in popular media that dudes can just be naturally gruff and awesome and capable but when a woman is, 99% of the time she’s gotta have a backstory of how life “broke” her. Could you ever imagine characters like master chief or kratos having these backstories in their games where they’re delicate, whimpering young men who get sexually menaced by bad guys?? It’s lame as hell.

I’m not saying that showing a character’s vulnerable side is bad, but I am saying that it’s very nearly always female characters who get vulnerability forced upon them. HMM I wonder why

I want more competent powerful kickass female heroes and I want more gentle, emotional male heroes. I want that on my desk by yesterday.

If you feel like posting on this matter any further: I agree with 99% of what you've said about this female vs male sexuality thing, but I think that one of the problems people have is that it doesn't seem to leave males with full freedom to design. Do you think this issue means that any female character designed by a male that is conventionally attractive or appealing to them in some way is "tainted", or is there a way you would suggest males can explore this sort of character carefully?

I don’t think it’s a case of characters being “tainted”, it’s more that a lot of ignorance seems to be on show in a lot of character design. I think that male designers really need to analyse how they go about designing a female character vs. how they design a male one. Do they design male characters with sex appeal in mind, or is it just the female characters? Why is sex appeal important to the character, what role are they supposed to play and is their role going to be undermined by them being designed to be a sexual object? Why do sexual characteristics (like tits n’ ass, usually) play such a large part in female character design while they don’t in male character design?

Of course I’m not saying that male designers should never design female characters to be sexually appealing. But what I am saying is that as a male designer, any female character they create is going to be coming from their own mentality and ideas as a man. If they want to write or draw a really good female character they need to do more than just make it look like how they envision a woman to look. Like if a straight person were to write a gay character, or a white person were to write a black character. Of course it can and should be done, but you need to analyse your own preconceptions about the group your character is part of and research the role. A female character designed purely to appeal to men and reinforce the ideas men have about women is an ignorantly designed character, in my personal opinion.
