I don’t purchase magazines like Cosmpolitan, Vogue and Vanity Fair. My younger sister used to when she was in high school and I thumbed through them on occasion. I found them to be quite unappealing, with little of actual value contained within the pages. 80% of them seemed to be ads with stick-thin women in crazy poses, wearing crazy clothing and decorated with crazy make-up that no one in her right mind would try to emulate.
Vanity Fair just gave me another reason not to purchase these kinds of magazines. Yesterday when I was
goofing off working hard and diligently, I stumbled across this article, Get Nekkid, But Only If You’re a Woman [article since removed]:
Yeah. Uhm. WHAT? I don’t know what else to say about this article or some of the assertions in it. I do know that every day I pass a photo and art gallery that has a very lovely photo of a bare-chested (and more) man posed in black and white…and I look at it very appreciatively as I pass by slowly.
My favorite line from the above-referenced article, btw…
So buzz-worthy was the VF cover, Min says, that her magazine went out and asked people what they thought of it.
The answer? Most thought the actresses looked better with clothes on.
