I am trash and love to hate watch the Teen Mom franchise and one of the couples on there are also stepsiblings. They were dating before their parents though? Thankfully said parents are divorced now. It's still super weird.

Like legit I don't get the sexual taboo desire of it all and I'm not sure I ever will, but like that movie I watched and then even this instance you can kinda see how it happens. But you're so right it does still seem so weird.

It's like in Clueless too! Cher and Josh used to be step siblings but then their parents divorced and yet she still refers to him as her step brother. THEN THEY END UP TOGETHER! You never like notice that shit at first because you just want Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd together and then you get older and you think about all of that shit, like also the fact that he's definitely at least 19 and she's 16 and it's definitely even weirder lol.

This just reminded me that I watched this Swedish movie on Netflix called "Kiss Me" or "Kyss Mig" about two adult women who are about to become step sisters and they end up falling in love with each other. It's definitely painted as "oh this isn't right" the whole time but, no spoilers I promise, it's really well told and extremely beautiful to watch.

Or it could be another Adore situation where I'm totally fine watching something and everyone else is like wtf that's creepy lmao. (Not that I watch that kind of porn that's indeed way gross and I'm not into that lol.)

I think it all stemmed from the Greg/Marcia weirdness on The Brady Bunch! :)

Clueless was based on Jane Austen's "Emma," I assume they preserved the relationships from the book. But yeah, weird that they would.

In the original story Mr. Knightly (the Paul Rudd character) is Emma's sister's brother-in-law, so there's even less of a relation there than if they had been two people who's parents were married. I know that's like the only way to basically like modernize that kind of thing, especially since they cut out any siblings from Cher's family, but it feels like a thing they didn't have to mention as many times as they do lol.

I think if this podcast and especially this movie has taught us anything, it is that screenwriters are perverts.

THANK YOU !! I have ALWAYS been weirded out by the Cher/ Josh storyline. As a kid I assumed I misheard and he couldn't possibly be her stepbrother. I get it Paul Rudd is an eternal snack that never ages but it's just so uncomfortable. Add in the age thing and it just gets grosser.

Can you imagine how awkward it would be to go on a double date with them or just casually ask how they met their partner? " we met when it parents got married " is just going to kill the night. You can't come back from that conversation.

Honestly they could have made Josh the son of his law firm partner or something and it would have been fine.

It has been forever since I've seen Clueless, but isn't Josh going into Law School or just completed his first year of Law School? he's got to be at least 21, right? But then I assumed Cher was 18 and a Senior in High School so it wasn't THAT weird to me. The age thing never bothered me, I grew up hearing stories about how my folks had a 4 or 5 year age difference but the "former step sibling" was always a bit strange to me as well.

I always assumed Cher was 16. Her and her friends are all getting their license. I think Paul Rudd is supposed to be law school because doesn't he help their dad with paperwork aat some point?

Add me to the list of people who always thought that was weird. Even at the end she says that thing about "not being from Kentucky". So, you know it's weird but don't care? Gross.

Also when she says "This isn't Kentucky," the whole line is, "As if! I'm only 16! This is California not Kentucky!"

I may... have watched this movie a lot....

It may be weird, but holy shit that is one of my favorite movies LOL.

If it was a musical I would say we have to just do it next Musical Monday, but I'm not sure Jeremy Sisto singing to The Cranberries counts lol.

It's got a pretty solid mid 90s soundtrack though, I think we could count it

My dad died while in high school and about 3-4 months later (I went through a big haze the semester following and can't keep track of what happened when) I was really depressed and a friend asked what was wrong and I obviously replied, "I'm just really sad about my dad," and she said, "Hasn't it been long enough?" (I now can't even remember the exact quote but I definitely remember thinking "she's right I should shut up about it." IT WAS ONLY 3-4 MONTHS LATER.)

Your son has way better friends lol.

That's terrible! I am so sorry that they did that to you. I imagine they had never gone through anything similar and didn't have any frame of reference but still.

Thank you, I really appreciate that. I think it was a really hard time not even only for me but also for everyone I knew because we were all so young and that kind of thing is hard to know how to deal with. I give her the benefit of the doubt, but definitely it was a terribly shitty thing to say to someone who has lost a parent so she's not totally off the hook lol.

Just because the person was unconscious doesn't mean they didn't experience being raped.

In the episode Jason says, as the point of view of the dad, "babe, of course I wanna have sex with you, but when you go away and Sam comes back, then I will have fucked our daughter."

If he roofies himself, he won't have any memory of that experience. 

Obviously it's all hypothetical, since we're talking about a movie where a mother's consciousness inhabits her daughter's body...

Except that you said you basically meant, in your original post, that the momdaughter who rapes the dad. 

And, although it may be a hypothetical you posted, you chose to make it about rape.

Ok guys, ya got me. Well done. I'm sorry what I suggested about a movie where a woman tries to have sex with her husband using their daughter's body was so offensive. It was a joke for shock value, like a pizza cutter, all edge no point. Apparently it wasn't funny to anyone but me. Forgive me

That's because rape jokes cross the line.
