Gayest Magazine Ever, Men’s Health, Fails to Acknowledge Gayness of Its Readers in Poll
I don’t know who the team over at Men’s Health thinks their readers are exactly, but surely a quick kumbaya around the cafeteria, cubicle farm or Rodale elevator should have tipped them off to the fact that their magazine is read largely in part by gay men.
The monthly ”How to Please Your Woman” columns are something of an in-joke within the gay community. And I dare you to show me a gay doctor’s office waiting room that isn’t littered with back issues.
Plus, there’s that whole shirtless, beefy, male celebrity on each cover thing. Dude, if the editorial team at Men’s Health didn’t realize they were producing a monthly gay periodical, they were just about the only ones left in the dark on this.
In any case, the 2012 Men’s Health Reader Survey fails to acknowledge the gayness of its readers by following a mandate like this:
“We don’t just want to know who our readers are. We want to know what makes them a man. What sort of workouts they love, their favourite dinner after a long day and what they do to unwind after. Only one man can help us: you.
…up with a question like this:
Mmhmm. Suuuuure, guys.
Maybe the “she” they’re referring to is your mom?
