I have to agree with @22 that this "full-throated" apology is horseshit. Not because of MK's track record on this over the past few years, but because his rationale for wishing they hadn't pulled the merch doesn't make any fucking sense. He claims that he thinks the best response, once the merch was available, and dickwolfgate had become the full category 5 shitstorm that it had, would have been to just disengage. But his idea of "disengaging" here was to continue selling (and profiting off of) merchandise mocking rape victims. THAT is horseshit. And it call's into question everything else in the, otherwise very encouraging, apology. It betrays the fact that he doesn't actually believe anything he's saying, that he is just protecting the bottom line, that he's being entirely disingenuous.

Regarding aPodments: what I want to know is when apartment sizes will start being measured in cubic feet. Clearly, as footprints shrink, vertical space becomes increasingly valuable (see the photos of Alturra Unit B8). At some point apartment volume will become more meaningful than footprint.

Yeah, but this video could still use a trigger warning. The content is pretty upsetting, and those who have actually experienced sexual assault aren't the intended audience.
