sockdreams.com is such a dangerous website omg you can drop so much money within the blink of an eye

I NEED ALL OF THEM

let me tell you about sockdreams okay. everything they have is cute and their “longer” socks which are for taller or curvier people are amazing. i am almost 6 feet tall and not a skinny lady and i bought some thigh highs thinking they’d end up being calf socks on me and just kind of resigning myself to this fate but when they arrived (in like two days, holy shit they mail out fast) not only did they pull all the way up without trouble, they managed to stay up and look cute. as. fuck. OP’s right yo, that website’s a threat to your wallet.

sockdreams is such a legitimate company and I love them a lot.

Ahhhhhh I see.

Jontron is…Game Grumps related?  Right?  I don’t know who he is, just that I’ve heard he’s trash.

Like I said in the tags of that post though, it’s good that we don’t forget that RT (and if we’re talking more about gamer groups then AH in particular) has said some really shitty things in the past, and that they don’t often apologize well.  Sure they’ve made some effort…but they could be doing (and could have always been doing) a lot better.

RT meaning Rooster Teeth? I still haven’t forgiven them for making a game show themed around stalking and harassing women. When they were called out on how fucking creepy and asshole-ish they were being, they refused to apologize and told everyone they were overreacting.

Jontron, from what I’ve heard, called a Sony update of some kind the r slur and then, when it was politely pointed out to him that that was rude, he called that person the r slur. Later he posted something refusing to apologize saying that the fact that he used the most ableist and insulting slur possible shouldn’t be important because there are dying kids somewhere else, basically. Apparently him participating in the oppression of the disabled community is totally okay because bad stuff happens other places and, oh, COMEDY!

Yes, I mean Rooster Teeth (have you seen my blog lately it’s 95% Rooster Teeth).

I heard something about that, but I’m guessing I’m far too new to the fandom because today is the first time I’ve heard of it.  Hence why I mentioned “they don’t often apologize well” because I heard they were being shitheads when called out on it.  And of course there are a few other instances (apparently Ray doesn’t like to have to sit down and think about what language he’s using or something like that???? then again, that’s something I’ve heard more from tumblr than actually from his mouth, and we know how information spread on here can almost be like a game of telephone sometimes).  Sometimes I have to sit down and wonder why I only like to consume problematic media.  We get shows like Orange is the New Black or Welcome to Night Vale and I can’t get myself to watch it/listen to it.  Nope, I’m over here like “Supernatural s10 anyone???”  I’m trash, I’m super trash.  I should throw myself out.

And yeah, that’s the kind of stuff I’ve heard about Jontron.  Ew.

Nah, I get what you mean. I think it’s because you become accustomed to the older version on storytelling and the unfortunate problems that come with it. I’ve noticed that stuff that’s better about it tends to have a different storytelling style.
As far as the Rooster Teeth thing, I actually saw the original article a while back. They seem to suffer from “I was bullied as a kid therefore I am now incapable of being a bully no matter what I do”, much like the Penny Arcade guy.

Will this ever change? Will the Internet ever be safe for women? That depends on whether or not the men who own and operate its most popular services would be willing to accept a decrease in engagement from some users in order to make women feel more comfortable. As it stands, companies like Twitter are testing the limits of their majority female user base, simultaneously relying on women to power their services while implicitly requesting that they bear the brunt of harassment in order to accommodate abusive users.

Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

"Anaconda" shifts the common narrative of a man conquering female bodies to Minaj’s own stories of sexcapades without apologies. Towards the end, the only man in the video appears: Drake, seated in the middle of an empty room with roaming spotlights and Minaj treating him to a lap dance. In the final seconds, he reaches to touch Minaj’s ass after she had been flaunting it in his face, and she immediately swats his hand and struts away. Her body belongs to her, and she can twerk it and work it however she pleases, and she doesn’t owe anything to anyone.
