People Expose The Sexist Assumptions Google Translate Makes

Many languages are gendered, so it's very difficult to be neutral when it comes to translating from English. The default is often male and this can lead to a lot of confusion, and assumptions when learning a new language. However, what people are discovering is that even with languages that are 'un-gendered,' like Finnish, Philipino, and Hungarian, Google Translate will still make certain assumptions about the pronouns.

Many people are very frustrated with how their language is appearing, and how sexist it appears on Google Translate and they're showing off the inconsistencies on Twitter.

That's mad sexist @Google Ő egy mérnök. Ő gyönyörű. She is an engineer. He is beautiful. Ő egy mérnök. Ő gyönyörű. He is an engineer. She is beautiful. Bekreftet

Giving Some Love To Awwdorable Endangered Numbats

There are so many amazing animals out there that we don't know about. Rare and special creatures that, as animal lovers, we wish we knew more about. One of them is the Numbat. Numbats are insectivorous marsupials, they're adorable, they're fluffy, they looks almost mythical, and there are only about 1000 of them left in the world. 

They're an endangered animal in need of help, and we think one of the best ways to help them is to spread awareness about them and show people pictures of how incredibly adorable they are. Because no one can withstand their cuteness. Another incredible way to help is to read up about them and consider donating at Project Numbat. But for now, let's take a look at how amazing they are
