Ya every orbit works like that. It might not always have the common point outside of the bigger body, but it's never the center of the larger body.

But what about Earth? Doesn't that mean the Earth would orbit this other point too? Or, really, that all objects are affecting this "point", or going further, that planets don't actually move in a perfect ellipse about a stationary point, since all the revolution periods of the various objects do not coincide?

pretty much. its just greatly misrepresenting a technicality for clickbait

Every mass in space orbits around something and a common orbital point.
Satellites going around earth are tugging on earth a very minute amount, so the orbital point is not the center of the earth but a few millimeters or less off center. Bigger satellites (the moon) effects this common point a little more.
Off course it gets pretty complicated when there are several things going around one big object.
The unique thing about Jupiter is, as @RightHandOfTheGoat mentioned, that Jupiter is so massive that the shift of the common orbital point is so large that it moves outside of the sun.
Sorry if my rambling is confusing, i understand the subject matter, but not well enough to explain it easily.

What about feminists? Everything revolves around them.

Sure, when there is one. But get multiple feminist in a room and their orbit starts getting effected by each other. So it's more like revolving around each other or a point in between them, the denser the feminist the more affect they have on the other's orbits and the closer that point of orbit is to them.

What's unique about Jupiter though is the the point is outside the sun. When you do the math for most of our planets the point is off center, but still inside the sun. It just shows how massive Jupiter is.

OP's mom is the common point.

Actually, I did the math... everything orbits around OP's mom.

Spoiler alert. They both orbit my balls.

I heard from an anonymous source that they both revolve around Russia. We need a special council of feminist to investigate. Also, I've identified as Jupiter since I was a child but there's no bathrooms for gas giants at the 7/11.

i recently found out that even the sun orbits something. Is that true?

Every orbit is an averaged oscillation influenced by every body of mass far and near, even things on the other side of the universe, however minute their influence may be.

The sun also orbits the galactic core, and the galactic members of the Local Group might be said to orbit each other, although now they think the Milky Way is going to collide with the Andromeda Galaxy in the distant future.

That's what is going on in this picture:

Everything is orbiting everything really. The higher the density the higher the gravitational pull they have on others and the closer the off-center point of orbit will be.
