Elle magazine had a great opportunity to talk about how patriarchy and assumed gender roles hurt men. But they didn’t take it. Luckily, I have no problem doing it for them.
Vogue is usually the only magazine I read every month. But I was drunk on a Sunday afternoon (completely normal on the DC brunch scene) and I picked up the February 2014 copy ofElle magazine for my monthly dose of “shit I can’t afford.” Let me be clear, I don’t read fashion magazine for feminist theory.
