I work at a grocery store and often find myself standing next to the magazine racks waiting for customers. Over the past few months, I’ve noticed more and more how ridiculous the magazine Woman’s World is. Every issue I see, it capitalizes on the idea that the ONLY thing women are interested in, is weight-loss. I mean, really. The biggest issues this magazine can’t seem to shake are “Destroy fat cells” or “Turn off your fat-making hormone” (I wish I were exaggerating). Even the smaller focuses seem to suggest that women have very little other interests other than kids, stress-relievers, and Dr. Oz remedies. It’s one thing to have a magazine gig about health and weight-loss and the like, but it’s another to pigeon-hole women and their “worlds” as these weight loss obsessed maniacs who have no creative interests. Call me crazy, but I’m 89% sure women have other things going on in their respective worlds other than how to lose 27 pounds by Christmas.
Just a thought.
