THINX Underwear:

OH SHIT YOU GUYS THIS COMPANY IS MAKING UNDERWEAR THAT IS STAIN RESISTANT, ANTIMICROBIAL, AND WILL ABSORB UP TO 6 TEASPOONS OF LIQUID BUT STILL LOOKS FUCKING SEXY

AND DID I MENTION THIS PART:

For every pair of THINX you buy, you help one girl in the developing world stay in school by providing her with seven washable, reusable cloth pads.

AND WHY IS THAT SUCH A BIG DEAL? HERE’S WHY:

After doing some research, Agrawal says she found that more than 100 million girls in the developing world were missing a week of school because of their periods, and using things such as leaves, old rags, or plastic bags in the place of sanitary pads.

THE SIZES RUN FROM XS TO XXL AND THE PRICES ARE NOT INSANE, THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY HIGHER THAN THOSE 5 FOR $10 SALES AT TARGET BUT YOU WON’T HAVE TO THROW THEM OUT BECAUSE YOU MISCALCULATED YOUR FLOW AND BLED ALL OVER THEM BEFORE YOU COULD GET TO A BATHROOM

I’M SORRY FOR SHOUTING I’M JUST REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS

LIKE HOLY FUCKBASKET IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME

#1431 People recommend RS/Bobobie because they are the most popular of the cheaper doll companies and so have the most examples of how good they can look. As for other low cost companies they can fall into a catch-22. They’re not popular, so people don’t know about them. People can’t recommend something they don’t know exists. So the cheaper companies don’t become more popular, and so people don’t know about them.

It’s got to be disheartening to new doll companies trying to break into the market. Not only do you have to go against long established companies, you have to compete against cheap copies of those big popular companies. Add in people who keep up the lie of “You must have a doll from XYZ popular company to be accepted in this hobby”(which I do see more from recast people than any other btw) and the struggle gets even harder. One more way recasts are draining creativity and innovation out of the hobby.
