This Would Be Honest

Can you imagine what the cover of a “woman’s magazine” would like if they were both honest their opinions of women and not still constrained by ever weakening anti-obscenity laws? I think that the cover of such an issue might look something like this:

An Honest Woman's Magazine Cover
Overanalyzing: The Cover of an Honest Woman’s Magazine

Personally I think that such a magazine would be a hit; I don’t think grocery stores and newsstands could keep it on the shelves. Even the women who buy and read these rags aren’t really stupid and they’ve got to be getting a bit jaded over the veiled misogyny and psychological abuse in the current “woman’s magazines.” They probably truly already need this sort of magazine in order to get the fix they need. 😛
