rowe i think the reason these women's magazines focus on these topics is because that's what women are worried about. they are indeed targeting women, as women's magazines. however, the question is what came first the chicken or the egg? your argument is that women are insecure at least in some part due to these articles. however i think these articles exist because women are already worried about these topics. we don't need essence to worry that we aren't cute enough, or whatever. due to many reasons including sociological ones, we are already worried about that.
i don't think there is anything wrong with radio raheem posting these articles. aren't we as women always complaining about these very topics. women like to vent and aren't always looking for a solution. but men want to find a solution when they hear us venting. its one of those we're from venus and they're from mars things. i don't take offense. in fact i think this is radio raheem's way of showing some love to the women who are concerned about these topics. i at least appreciate that he's not pulling it out of his behind, he's getting these things from periodicals for women. which means he must be genuinely interested in researching and addressing a woman's concerns.
