Why are women's magazines so bad?Watch
Against: Market might focus more on women to earn more money so men are disadvantaged
Should be interesting when the vast majority of the editors, staff and readers are women.
Magazines shouldn't necessarily be aimed at a specific gender as the vast majority of people don't fit the stereotypes reflected in these magazines so you could say they're sexist as they very often focus on supposedly feminine traits when there are plenty of men interested in the same things and plenty of women who aren't. Also, they're all so repetitive, if you have read one you've read them all, waste of a tree's life tbh
You can spend half a day waiting to see a young woman pick up a copy of Trainspotter, and likewise a man pick up a copy of Woman or Glamour.
You're spot on about them being repetitive though.
Don't get me started on the awful sex and relationship tips.
So I'm doing a debate at school where I'm against women's magazines. I have some pretty good points already, but I'm wandering if any of you have any good points. Also it'll be good if you can come up with arguments for women's magazines, but also come up with a counter argument for it.
Seems it's only women's magazines that include horoscopes....we are trying to encourage girls to study STEM subjects yet keeping them in the dark ages by encouraging belief in astrological piffle.
