Women's interests

Category: Rants & Raves | 6 Comments | Posted 14:19

The other day as I was leafing thru women's magazines at the newsagent's, I realised yet again that none of the subjects treated therein interest me in the slightest. They are superficial, trivial, downright idiotic even and I cannot help looking down on people who are interested in them.

What's in fashion this season (and make sure you're not seen wearing something "last year"!), how to put on your mascara (and which brand to buy), what Posh is gonna do about Becks and a glimpse of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson's knickers, the sex position of the week and how to make sure you've got the right man (and how to keep him).

Dreadfully boring and horribly irrelevant. It makes me wonder, are women really interested in that?? Well apparently they are - at least according to Andreas Lebert, editor of German women's mag Brigitte: "Women's mags are about fashion, cosmetics and cooking because women enjoy those things." Oh puke, give me a break! :-&
How utterly depressing!


hi..nice to meet you...

There has to be more to life than trying out the lastest lipstick color... before it goes out of fashion next week!
