6 Outdated Myths People Still Believe About Homosexuality

6 Outdated Myths Everyone Still Believes About Homosexuality

Only half a century ago, homosexuality was society’s worst-kept secret — everyone knew it existed, but you didn’t see gay people on TV or movies, and you didn’t talk about them at Thanksgiving dinner. Understandably, there were a lot of ridiculous misconceptions about the homosexual community back then, but today there shouldn’t be any excuse — we have openly gay celebrities, politicians, and plenty of well-written fictional examples in pop culture to pick from.

Yet, the misconceptions persist. Read more on Cracked…

7 Film Adaptations The Author Hated (For Ridiculous Reasons)

7 Movie Adaptations Authors Hated

Although books are a frequent source of inspiration for filmmakers, Hollywood doesn’t always see eye-to-eye with the authors of those books, because books are for nerds, so who cares what they think. Understandably, this often doesn’t sit well with the writers. But it doesn’t mean the author is always right — in fact, some of our favorite movies are books that Hollywood “ruined” in the eyes of their authors. Read More On Cracked…

7 Horrifying Lessons Learned Directing A Porno

7 Horrifying Lessons Learned Directing A Porno

We think we have a rough idea of how porn movies work: actors shoot dozens of films a week, everyone’s on drugs all the time, corny music plays constantly, etc. We’ve gone deeper (giggle) into the world of porn with this piece about life as a male porn star. But that man was controlling the dick — who controls the man who controls the dick? Some questions need answers. So we sat down with “Reno Nevada,” a man who found himself thrown unwittingly into the role of porn director several years ago. Here’s what he learned making his first (and only) filmic masturbatory aid. Read More On Cracked…

4 Reasons The “Full House” Reunion Should Be A Reality Show

4 Reasons The Full House Reunion Should Be A Reality Show

Hey, everyone who just refuses to let the 1990s go, a Full House revival is once again in talks, but this time, it might actually happen! Original executive producers Jeff Franklin and Bob Boyett — as well as a number of original cast members — are all on board to mine your nostalgia for dollar signs.

But according to actor Blake Tuomy-Wilhoit, who played one of Uncle Jesse’s mutant twin children and was not invited to participate in the reunion, “As far as I know, the new show is not a [Full House reunion] … it will revolve around a few characters from the show though.” Adding even more fuel to this speculative fire is the fact that John Stamos, Dave Coulier, and Bob Saget have been making an unusual number of public appearances together. This seems to suggest that the new series will be about three old men living together in San Francisco, which is less of a sitcom and more of an excerpt from a census report. Read more on Cracked…

5 Current TV Shows That Get More Praise Than They Deserve

5 Current TV Shows That Get More Praise Than They Deserve

Listen, I get it. People like what people like, and, with so many options available, complaining about the inferior choices made by others is kind of pointless and petty when you could just as easily skip those things altogether in favor of something else. So, in that respect, that I’m about to spend a couple thousand words of column space explaining why the shows a lot of you enjoy are a little more beloved than they deserve to be might seem like kind of a dick move.

3 Reasons To Never Use The Term ‘Friendzone’

3 Reasons To Not Use The Term Friendzone

I’m writing about sex this week — specifically, the situation in which certain men complain about being “friendzoned” by women who choose not to see them sexually. Now, I recognize that sex is a highly-charged, volatile, and subjective issue, so it’s my goal to remain as logical and objective as possible as I urge all men to completely remove “friendzoned” from their vocabulary — especially when they’re using it to deride a woman’s sexual choices.

First, what does “frieindzoned” even mean? Basically, a man who’s complaining about being “friendzoned” by a woman is upset that this woman sees him in only a non-sexual manner, or only as a friend. But before we examine all three scenarios where a man would make such a complaint, and why he would be wrong to do so, let’s take a step back and see what kind of men we’re talking about.
