This is why we no longer need gendered magazines


Yes, people want to read about topics they can identify with, but to suggest that these parameters are predisposed by our genitalia rather than our basic interests is practically Orwellian.


Besides, how can one suggest that spheres of interest like politics, culture and social commentary are gender-assigned?


In the modern world, our jobs, voting rights and societal roles are no longer dictated by our gender, so there is no reason why are reading materials should be divided so starkly across gender lines.
