Project Inspired

What is Project Anti-Cosmo?

Cosmopolitan is emblematic of what’s wrong with our culture today. The content of the magazine is predominantly (and often explicitly) about sex. The articles you’ll typically find in its pages advise “hookups” without a hint of emotional connection. Yet, unlike “R” rated movies, there’s no “age limit” for anyone to access it, so young teen girls are reading, absorbing, and acting on its destructive message. Indeed, the increasing focus on sex sex sex encourages the magazine’s impressionable readers to make the most shallow choices imaginable. Because of its popularity (it’s in every supermarket, at the nail salon, in waiting rooms, and on your mom’s nightstand) it has become one of the media’s worst influences on teenage girls. Cosmopolitan needs to change its content or be made harder to access. Join me in my fight to force Cosmopolitan to be more responsible as a guide in the lives of young women. See my videos and posts about this important mission!

Nicole is right. This magazine is just pornography, and should be sold in the same way pornograhy is sold. It should not be readily available to children.

yes - the front cover may not be pornographic, but the “gotchya” headlines on the side are really something.’

I remember a few years ago there was one about - how to sleep with the boss.
And don’t forget....sleeping with your best friend’s boyfriend?

I try to not look at the pictures or captions on magazines like Cosmopolitan, but one gets bored standing in line.

On a lighter note - I’m always amazed that almost every cover says something about “.... ways to drive your man crazy in the bedroom” or “ tips to keep him happy.”

I commented to my wife one time, that they must be recycling the same tips/methodologies. They couldn’t possibly be coming up with new ways.

Seriously, it is very troubling that young girls and boys see this stuff openly, and there is nothing to keep them from purchasing it. Anyway, I appreciate the efforts of this noble woman who is attempting to get them to tone it down or get put with the other “adult” material.
