Though Mean Girls was rated PG-13 for “sexual content, language, and some teen partying,” that was a rating Paramount had to fight for, says Waters. “We had lots of battles with the ratings board on the movie. There was the line, ‘Amber D’Lessio gave a blow job to a hot dog,’ which eventually became ‘Amber D’Lessio made out with a hot dog.’ Which is somehow weirder! That’s the thing we found: When you’re trying to make a joke obey the rules and not use any bad words, it can actually become seamier, even.” Still, there were some things that Waters simply refused to change. “The line in the sand that I drew was the joke about the wide-set vagina. The ratings board said, ‘We can’t give you a PG-13 unless you cut that line.’ We ended up playing the card that the ratings board was sexist, because Anchorman had just come out, and Ron Burgundy had an erection in one scene, and that was PG-13. We told them, ‘You’re only saying this because it’s a girl, and she’s talking about a part of her anatomy. There’s no sexual context whatsoever, and to say this is restrictive to an audience of girls is demeaning to all women.’ And they eventually had to back down.”

Narrating People’s Lives: In the Aisles! by Thomas Sanders

That’s adorable.

I love how the dad does this side-glance at his kid like “You’re about to be embarrassed so hard, son”

this man has a narrator’s voice on par with the Stanley Parable voice.

the number one thing of the many things about this article is the way the writer seems to think that scumbag millennials who are too lazy to get jobs obtain these costumes somehow for free (?) rather than them requiring significant disposable income. ‘people are spending more of their money on consumer goods, no wonder the economy’s in the tank’ - a real employed person with the academic qualifications to call himself an economist

While, yes, the idea of cosplay being a warning flag of the state of the economy is laughable at the very least, Forbes published a response article, which I think brings up an interesting point about just different interests of a different generation.
No, The Rise of Cosplay is Not a Bad Sign for the US Economy
by Adam Ozimek
“What I think is really operating here is a latent jock/nerd bias. After all, if you were to tell me that underemployed young adults were spending too much time dressing up in costumes and fleeing the reality of their lives by immersing themselves in the escapism of something grander I’d probably agree with you. But I’d think you were talking about sports fans. And yes sports fans, when you put on a jersey with your favorite player’s name and number on it that’s a costume, and you’re playing dress-up. Just like the nerds dressing up like Batman or some anime character.
But instead of worrying about the misspent hours of sports fans, (the article) focuses on the hobbies of nerds instead. My suspicion is that millenials really aren’t any more likely to engage in escapist pursuits, rather they are just engaging in different ones. A recent Harris poll showed that compared to Gen X, Millenials are 12 percentage points less likely to follow football, 8 percentage points less likely to watch baseball, and so-on down the line. Younger people like sports less, and maybe they are filling up some of that would-be sports time by dressing up in Game of Thrones costumes instead of a Derek Jeter costume.”

kat laying down some facts is one of my favorite things

In theory, cosplaying could (and perhaps should) be a booming industry. Dunno if you could actually put this into practice though.

I remember when this shit happened 10 years ago and it’s so fucked up watching it in the present day.

Didn’t crossfire get cancelled after this?

It was cancelled in 2005 with some reasons citing Stewart’s criticisms
