    17 Things Every Women's Magazine Will Tell You (That You Should Ignore)

    WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE

    I don't read women's magazines, contrary to that vicious rumor, but I am pretty sure this is still one of the funniest things I have ever read, LOL!

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)

    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)

    Oh, these are good. Yeah, I'm pretty much over women's magazines. I will buy one every once in a while if I am desperate for something to read and haven't had a chance to get to the library.

    Freakin' hilarious! I used to read Cosmo when I was younger, and that was right on.

    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Thanks for the much-needed laffs! When I was in my teens all the way up to when I graduated college, I was a hardcore closet COSMO addict- I even had an actual subscription a few years, lol! The reason I was "closeted" is because most of my friends were (take your pick) hippies, metalheads, then punks/new wavers/alterna- rockers/grunge, etc.. I mean, I was, too, but I was kinda a poser, I'll admit- I could go clubbing with my preppy friends one night, mainstrean as can be, dancing to the (then) just-released "Thriller" album and have a blast. Then the next night I'd go see the Replacements or the Butthole Surfers at some raggedy-ass club (in Athens, GA- go Dawgs!), dressed in jeans w/holes in the knees and an "English Beat" t-shirt. Had fun doing that too. But I ALWAYS bought and read Cosmo and I LOVED it! Years later, in my mid-twenties, I 'dropped the habit' because I was older and a bit wiser and all of a sudden the magazine just seemed so...retarded. By the end of my addiction, I was only "in it" for the (mentioned in the article) "true" stories about bulimia or- better yet- murder. That's when I started with the true crime novels and really found my "true love"- ha! And of course that eventually led me to my beloved WS!! Truth be told, I have a Master's in English, have read- and loved- Shakespeare, Milton, Faulkner, etc. etc., and I still love literature but...give me a juicy (well-written; THAT'S another story!) true crime story and I will drop everything, still!

    I have never liked so-called "women's magazines". They have nothing interesting or valuable to say and they have nothing to do with the realities of real women. Basically, the reader/subscriber is paying a lot of money for a packet of advertising -- for a bunch of overpriced carp that nobody needs. Any surprise young people are living far beyond their means?

    bbm

    this is where i have a problem with womens magazines... i love fashion and cosmetics etc. BUT the reality of my life is that i work with a bunch of home building contractors... there is no chance of implementing most of what i see in those mags into my actual life...kwim? so they are more or less just fantasy mags for grown-ups...and they are expensive too. most of the "TIPS" on stuff is really lame too...no need to spend $5 bucks for any of the info provided in any of the mags at the news stand. for $5bucks i could actually buy a real product that would be of some use to me in my REAL life....

    i almost forgot to thank DARK KNIGHT for the nice big belly laugh from this article!

    Me either SCM!

    I buy the gossip mags for my teen daughter, but my Husband reads them too.

    My oldest buys all the women's mags like the ones DK posted.

    I buy a mag if it's got good recipes in it LOL.
