Am I Really Out of Touch?

I recently decided to add 2 “women’s issues” on-line magazines to my phone –
Smart News. I had expectations of seeing articles about women’s health,
welfare (not the entitlement kind) and education. Boy was I surprised.

Here’s a sample of the articles titles from two magazines:
• “Wraps are Bullshit, Eat a Sandwich Instead”
• “The Dumbest Thing In Your Kitchen”
• “The First Agency For Transgender Models is Opening in L.A.”
• Is Office Air Conditioning a Sexist Conspiracy?”
• “Guys Shave Their Legs For The First Time and Vow To Never Do It Again”.

This is the best you can do?: And those article help women how? And
more, do today’s women really find those articles interesting?
What happened to writing about what we know not opinion? Where are the
articles on improving our financial positions, How to have pocket money,
or other financial articles to help educate women to improve their

Women have been the social conscious for many generations. Many of the best
laws have been written and promoted by women. Yet “womens’ issues”
magazines don’t seem to touch on those aspects of our lives. Where are
the articles about life planning and when you should start? Where’s the
health related articles?

Life is about choices and these should be made without peer pressure way
back in High School, not when we’re 35 with three kids. Today’s world is
about making choices on lifestyle, financial position and a host of other
issues. I saw none of those articles. But I will hold off on my decision
on whether to continue having them on my phone based on their articles
for the next month. At that point, I’ll have to decide if I’m too old or
not. But you never get a second chance to change a first impression.

Until next time . . . . .
