@Qwyrdo the actual article itself had more info and apparently the woman had a temporary deafness to deeper voices, so any "conventionally masculine" deep voice she was totally deaf too.
@radicalrobit hypothetically, how does one contract this?
@sonya Apparently by stressing the fuck out;
"Xiaoqing diagnosed Chen with “low-frequency hearing loss,” a rare condition that cuts off deeper, lower-frequency sounds. The doctor in unsure of the cause, but believes the condition was brought on by stress. She expects Chen to experience a full recovery."
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
