A teddy bear with a strap-on dildo? Supreme has a T-shirt for that.

The streetwear brand’s latest spring tee collection also features Anna Nicole Smith.

Supreme’s seasonal crop of T-shirts is set to arrive this week, adding seven new graphics to the cannon. Among the lineup is a healthy mix of celebrities and vulgarity, including an Anna Nicole Smith portrait that’s sure to be one of the most sought after tees.

If you’re not afraid offending onlookers with your attire, the other highlight has to be dominatrix teddy bear, complete with a strap-on dildo and whip. It bears the text “I’m not sorry” — which will speak for itself when anyone takes issue with the extremely DTF teddy bear on your chest.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a weak point among the seven T-shirts, making this one of the more solid capsules that Supreme drops each spring and fall. And even though there are clear ringers, none seem too likely to hit an extreme resale price if you miss out the first time.

Clubhouse user records reportedly posted on a hacker forum.

Clubhouse, the live audio-only social network, reportedly had its servers hacked last week, with more than 1.3 million user records leaked online. Or at least that’s what CyberNews wrote on April 10. It didn’t take long at all for Clubhouse to shoot down this report.

The company’s official Twitter account writes that the CyberNews information is “misleading and false.” All the information included in that report — users’ names, social media handles, number of followers, and photo URL — is all public profile information, Clubhouse says. It’s all accessible via the app or the company’s official API.

Clubhouse has had a huge year thus far, with such monumental success that even the likes of Spotify and Facebook are testing their own clone services. A hack of this size would have been crushing for the trust still being built between Clubhouse and its users. So it’s great that the company’s databases haven’t been hacked — but Clubhouse’s response raises plenty more questions about the platform’s security.

Facebook's job ads have a gender bias problem

Which ads users see depends on which gender they identify with, or which Facebook thinks they do.

Researchers have sounded the alarm on gender bias in Facebook's ad system for job listings. University of Southern California researchers report that Facebook pushed ads for jobs to men and women with remarkably different frequency depending on the roles in question.

The issue is so disproportionate that researchers say it goes "beyond what can be legally justified." One of the examples shared by the authors of the study note the difference between Instacart and Domino's Pizza delivery jobs. Facebook targeted a female-majority demographic with the Instacart ad while the Domino's Pizza ad went to the majority male crowd.

Earlier this week, inspired by Twitter’s obsession with them, we put together a list of the best Nike shorts you can buy. Despite their casual nature, wearers and observers have professed their love for Swoosh-branded shorts and their ubiquity during the summer.

But why reduce it to Nike? There are countless bangin’ athletic shorts out there that are up to lounging at home or getting a summer fit off. It’s not as if the Beaverton giant has a monopoly on the, umm, anatomical highlights that free flowing shorts encourage. A hot boy summer has many paths, and in a bid to widen the scope we’ve rounded up 10 more shoots from brands other than Nike.

What follows is fits into a range of budgets, from cheap shorts you can dress up mildly to completely absurd luxury options. Pick up a pair (or few) to live your best summer life and possibly attract attention from onlookers.
