About 87 per cent of Bangladeshi married women are abused by their husband, according to a nation-wide study conducted by the government that involved a sample of 12,600 women. Only 8 per cent of respondents said that they were never abused by their partner.
In 2011, 77 per cent of respondents admitted that they had been abused. Of these, 50 per cent had sustained serious injuries, but one in three women refused to go to hospital for fear of retaliation by the husband.
Lata Gomes (not her real name for security reasons) told AsiaNews that “husbands consider us weak, and therefore believe that they have the right to dominate us, even beating us. I am a university graduate and I take care of our two children. But my husband does not listen to me, and if I do not do what he says, he beats me.”
According to human rights organisation Bangladesh Mahila Parishad (BMP), 5,616 cases of violence against women were recorded in 2012, mostly rapes (904), followed by murders (900), stalking and death as a result of stalking (662); dowry-related murders (558), and suicide (435).
Although Intrusives is not in a position to judge this incident, we found ourselves feeling really disturbed by these statistics.
APPARENTLY, FREEZING YOUR ASS, then bringing you back to life has become a reality.
Welcome to the age of cryogrenic freezing. Companies like Cryonics Institute are charging a fee of 50,000 to freeze YOUR FUCKING BRAIN, and 150,000 for your entire “legally dead” body, and place it in a container until they develop the science to clone the rest of you.
By the way, your loved ones can also visit you in your tank whenever they wish (within reasonable hours), and will be able to mourn you and your shit dead body, along with flowers and shit. Wow, can’t wait to get one. We’re being sarcastic, just so you can’t figure it out.
We seem to be getting more and desperate to overcome the final frontier of life; death. Whilst there would be many who would pay for this service, it would not really be for the result, but for HOPE that they are conquering death itself.
Intrusives is an initiative that hopes to educate the digital generation on alternative perspectives affecting youth and millennials worldwide. We help you think different.
