5 Things People Don’t Get About Borderline Personalities

Woman

It’s not everyone who can watch a horror thriller, point at the villain and say, “Hey, that’s me!” But you can if you have  borderline personality disorder – that’s the condition that Hollywood loves to scare the shit out of men with in movies like  ”Fatal Attraction.” Any movie of that “woman seems OK at first, turns out to be an obsessive psycho!” genre is actually portraying someone with BPD. Since pop culture treats these BPD sufferers (and no, they’re not all women) as a walking Worst Case Scenario, we thought we’d sit down with one and see what it’s like to live with it.

5 Things You Don’t Know About Strippers (Until You Are One)

Stripper

If prostitution is the world’s oldest profession, stripping may very well be the second oldest — it all depends on exactly when the first uptight humans decided people shouldn’t walk around with their most enticing bits flopping nakedly in the wind. As soon as clothing became the norm, taking that clothing off became a profitable gig for anyone willing to learn how to do it well. But despite the venerable legacy of this career, and the utter ubiquity of strip clubs in our modern cityscapes, most people know very little about the realities of dancing naked (or naked-ish) for money. So Cracked sat down with exotic dancers from across the United States: Emily, Laura, Zoey, Layne, Helen, Meredith, and a male stripper named Salvatore. Read more on Cracked…

5 Things Every Snob Says (Confirmed By Science)

Well, this is kind of a tragedy. I started out researching this column with the intention of writing “5 Snobby Comments Science Says Aren’t True,” but clearly the research just didn’t shake out. Time after time, I kept discovering that the most obnoxious, condescending, scarf-wearing douchebags in the world are correct, justified, and [some third thing] in their attitude. This is proof that either we need to completely reshape the way we react to people or that all of science is just trolling us for the lolz. Either way, I found studies that conclude people aren’t wrong when they say… (Read more on Cracked!)

9 Stupid Words We Should Retire In 2015

A new year is upon us, and that means we need to arbitrarily decide some things will be different, solely based on the fact that Earth has completed another cycle around the sun in a way that proves nothing other than physics are still working. To start, let’s work on language. We have a whole shitload of words available to use in our day-to-day interactions to express a wide range of feelings, thoughts, and ideas. Too many, in fact. Some of these words are just shameful and need to be retired. It’s not that they don’t have meanings or can’t necessarily be useful; it’s just that you inevitably sound kind of dumb using them. So please don’t use them. Read more on Cracked…

5 Ridiculously Sexist Ways Toy Companies Are Targeting Kids

5 Ridiculously Sexist Ways Toy Companies Are Targeting Kids

Marketing products to children isn’t particularly hard. Just throw a bunch of skateboards and neon backwards caps into your commercial and kids will want the shit out of whatever you’re selling. But for some reason, plenty of companies out there still think that little girls want nothing to do with things like LEGOs or NERF guns unless they’re covered in purple glitter and teach them how to get a boyfriend.

8 Vintage Christmas Carols (That Are All About Sex)

8 Vintage Christmas Carols That Are All About Sex

In 2008 Lady Gaga gave the world the gift of a song where she refers to her vagina as a Christmas tree, suggesting that she has a serious misunderstanding of how at least one of those works. Between that and other recent tracks, like Nate Dogg rapping about getting holiday head and the beloved family classic “Father Christmas Fucked My Pussy,” it’s easy to assume that modern perverts have ruined a once-innocent holiday with sexualized music.
