Anonymous asked: Who is the hottest male employee at roosterteeth?
I don’t think I have ever seen Adam Ellis wear anything heavier than a t-shirt and a pair of shorts. Pretty sure that guy is in a constant state of being hot. I wanna send him to Antarctica to see if we can at least make him shiver once in his life.
Plus, who doesn’t want to see Adam Ellis holding a penguin?
nickiminasty asked: Thank you for sending me that ask. My bad for not realising the amount of women there is at RT.
Haha, nah, a lot of people still think it’s mostly male, but we’ve grown so much, it’s no longer true! Spread the word!
Ray and Michael make a really fucking racist joke in todays Go!
Jack has his scarf wrapped around his head and with his hat you can only see his eyes so, classy as always, Ray said that he has “a plane to catch” and immediately after said “Terrorist joke!’
30 seconds later michael said “He’s gunna kill all of us he’s going to blow up the whole goddamn plane!”
It’s between 1:38 and 2:00 if you want to skip that part, folks.
Anonymous asked: sort of weird, non sj-related question: do you think the Minecraft LP guys are starting to lose their personalities? i've noticed this happen with a lot of famous youtube channels--where they feel like they have to play into the character that the fans think of them as. For instance, all the King Ryan stuff.
I think they do slip into a character after a while, and that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s not that they’re losing their personalities, it’s that they’re emphasising parts of their personalities. Also they do kind of need to turn it up a bit in order to stay entertaining - keeping up a high energy let’s play for an hour does require a bit of acting tbh. Though personally I do quite like the more sedate let’s plays like the let’s builds and Michael’s full plays quite a lot, too.
I think they do run the risk of falling into the trap of stereotyping themselves and pulling away from their own personalities too much though. Especially if they start getting fed up with the expectation of what they’re supposed to be like. For example, I sometimes get the feeling that Michael gets fed up with the ‘angry guy’ persona, but maybe that’s just me.
At the end of the day, it’s important that they enjoy themselves - if they enjoy doing something, I generally enjoy watching. It’s kind of infectious that way.
Anonymous asked: Such a stunning twist of fate. How will you deal with the staggering changes this revelation will force upon you? Can you cope?
MY WHOLE LIFE IS A LIEEEEEE.

Wow. This is such an incredible revelation that not even I had any idea! Plot twist of the century.
Anonymous asked: the "but what is the definition of white" anon needs to calm the fuck down. White people are the ones with all or almost all of their ancestors from europe (mostly northern europe, as the area around the mediterranean sea was inhabited by brown people) and that's pretty much the overall definition. The anti-irish and anti-scottish sentiments they mentioned are xenophobia if anything, not racism. So i give you a hug and a (virtual) cookie, Michael. You deserve it!
Thank you! <3
Anonymous asked: I'm so happy your blog exists. I had been noticing the sexist/homophobic/transphobic/ect. jokes for a long time and I almost stopped watching rt stuff because of it. When I found your blog and the warnings you put for their jokes in bad taste it really helped me to skip things that would make me uncomfortable and so I thank you for that
You’re very welcome, thank you for the support. I don’t post TWs quite so much any more because there is an EXCELLENT blog doing a much better job of it than I ever did. You should follow if there are any triggers that you would like to avoid. AH-TW.
Anonymous asked: You've been getting a lot of bad anons recently, so I just wanted to say that this blog helps me a lot. I feel a lot better being prepared when something problematic is going to be said/done in a video, even though I enjoy a lot of RTs content. So thanks so much for providing this space :)
Thank you, I did need that today! I’m getting a little stressed by the amount of shit coming into my inbox today - I should probably stop replying to it. Here, have a hug:
Anonymous asked: Look up the Wikipedia articles on: Anti-Irish sentiment, Anti-Scottish sentiment, and Anti-British sentiment. Plz learn. Also, your definition of white people only includes 3 euro nations or do you define it as 'not an objective category'? In which case, which white people are you referring to when you say the word white? Just the racists?
I… just copy/pasted the UK definition of white from wikipedia. Which you apparently didn’t read - Europe is comprised of more than 3 nations. The definition suggested that white people are primarily descended from white Europeans (this would include white Americans, Canadians, Australians etc.). Why are you asking me what white means. Why would I only be referring to racists? I’m so confused. I’m an English white person and I’ve never experienced racism. PoC experience some kind of racism pretty much every day of their lives. To deny that is to deny reality. I’m not going to respond to you further because I’m pretty sure you’re a troll.
