  • Cosmopolitan: All Women Think Guns Are Icky and Bad

    I shouldn’t be surprised that Cosmopolitan, a magazine devoted to exploiting women as sex objects, now has a video taking its sexism to a new level. In the new video “Couples Talk about Gun Ownership,” women are shown discussing guns and gun-control issues with their significant others. Within seconds, the viewer is aware that Cosmopolitan believes women think guns are scary “death machines,” men that own guns are probably domestic abusers, and the Second Amendment is worthy of nothing more than an eye roll.
  • She Was a Pro-Abortion Columnist for Cosmo, But Something Made Her Pro-Life

    It’s very common for people to believe that the issue of abortion is one to avoid discussing at all costs, since people’s minds are completely made up on it. This seems even more true if the pro-choicer in question is a decades-long writer for Cosmopolitan, a women’s magazine with a very positive attitude to casual sex and abortion. Sue Ellen Browder proves this logic wrong. “I told a lot of lies in that magazine,” she says now. “We were making up fantasies of women that were jumping into bed, but they weren’t doing it as much as they are today....
  • Cosmo Calls Kardashians ‘America’s First Family,’ But America Disagrees

    The cutting edge of print journalism that is Cosmopolitan labeled the Kardashians as “America’s First Family” on the cover of its 50th anniversary issue in November. Needless to say, America (i.e. Twitter) does not agree with this sentiment, and has taken it upon itself to educate the half-a-century-old magazine. According to Uproxx, 16 pages of next month’s issue are dedicated to the family clan made famous by sisters Kim and Khloe‘s exploits in reality television, smartphone apps, and many, many other business endeavors. At this point, the Kardashian family is no longer a family — it’s a brand. Whether or...

    The granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, of the multi-national media empire Hearst Corporation, and the National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) are launching a campaign that demands Cosmopolitan Magazine be displayed behind blinders or in an opaque wrapper and not sold to minors.

    The Army made her feel “like a joke” — but they couldn’t keep her silent. Chelsea Manning — formerly known as Bradley E. Manning — the ex-Army intelligence analyst sentenced to 35 years for leaking a treasure trove of secret documents to WikiLeaks, has given her first public interview with the press from military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Speaking through the mail to Cosmopolitan magazine, Manning opened up about her recent experience behind bars and her lifelong desire to live as a woman. “I don’t know how [this struggle] shaped my life and who I am, but it’s absolutely...

    Say what you want about pro-life incrementalism, but one thing about the movement to ban abortions at 20 weeks is undeniable: it has exposed just how entitled abortionistas feel to the “mainstream” mantle even as they refuse to give an inch from their extremism. Last week, Cosmopolitan’s Liz Welch relayed the testimony of Vanessa Riley to the Texas legislature opposing the state’s new protections for pain-capable unborn children. Her “devastating” account is supposed to prove how these “harsh” laws “can prevent women from getting the care they need. Riley defines herself as a pro-choicer committed to never having an abortion...

    Helen Gurley Brown, the former editor of Cosmopolitan who transformed the magazine in the 1960s into a source of sexual empowerment for women, died Monday morning. A spokesman for the Hearst Corporation, which publishes Cosmopolitan, said that Ms. Brown, 90, died after being hospitalized briefly at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia hospital.

    The August issue of Cosmopolitan arrives on newsstands next week. Nicole Weider, a former fashion model, a purpose-driven young Christian woman, believes the “obscene” magazine should be wrapped in a nontransparent plastic bag. “This publication has steadily declined,” she says, “into a full-on pornographic ‘how to’ guide for teens and vulnerable young girls.” Indeed, Cosmo’s August cover entices readers to venture inside its pages with promises of “52 SEX TIPS,” as well as one of those how-to features Nicole mentions, coaching women on how to “TURN HIM ON FROM ACROSS THE ROOM,” and a helpful article for ladies wondering what...

    (FOX 25 / - Republican Senator Scott Brown made a crack about Democrat Elizabeth Warren’s physical appearance on a radio show Thursday morning. According to the Boston Globe, the senator was responding to a crack Warren made during Tuesday's debate. When Warren was asked about Brown using his centerfold spread in Cosmopolitan magazine decades ago to pay for college, she said she “didn’t take her clothes off” to pay for school. When the WZLX disc jockey asked Brown for a response, he said "Thank God," which elicited laughter from the DJs. Read more:

    Some called it the "Scott Heard 'Round the World." A year ago today, Scott Brown stunned the bipartisan political establishment when he won election to the U.S. Senate seat Ted Kennedy had held for 47 years. Although the Revolutionary War rhetoric was obvious hyperbole, the excitement wasn't entirely unjustified: this was the Democrats' biggest electoral defeat of the Obama era.

  • Taking back Sen. Kennedy's Old Seat a Top Priority for Democrats in 2012

    The Hill ^ | 12/15/10 | Michael O’Brien
    Democrats are seeking to make amends in Massachusetts after Scott Brown’s (R) stunning election to the Senate last January. Party members and labor groups in the state said that beating Brown will likely be their top priority in 2012, presenting them an opportunity to reclaim the late Sen. Edward Kennedy’s (D) longtime seat. Brown also represents one of the few pickup opportunities for Democrats, who’ll be defending 23 Senate seats in the coming election. “If you had to project right now, it’s top of the ticket in Massachusetts,” said state Democratic Party Chairman John Walsh of Brown. And while Brown’s...

    After basically evading reporters all day, the Massachusetts Republican recently announced that he will support the arms reduction treaty. Brown told reporters following a closed-session intelligence briefing that he had given the issue “due diligence” and hoped see the treaty ratified. “I believe it’s something that’s important for our country, and I believe it’s a good move forward to deal with our national security issues,” he said. A cloture vote is expected on Tuesday.

    There is Scott Brown the Senate candidate in Massachusetts, and there is Scott Brown, the musician in New Zealand. They each have Twitter accounts, but the Scott Brown from Down Under laid claim to @ScottBrown first, and the Senate candidate had to resort to @ScottBrownMA. As the Boston Globe reports, in the past few days, as @ScottBrownMA has gained momentum through bloggers and twitterers and other social media, @ScottBrown has been inundated with people seeking @ScottBrownMA. Here is one of the tweets by @ScottBrown about the flood of contacts: Despite, or maybe because of, Martha Coakley's high profile as Massachusetts...

    Is this a sign of the times or what? Cosmopolitan, the glossy bible of sex and shopping for the single girl, has launched a new monthly column on spirituality. "I've come to the painful realisation that men and shoes are not enough to make me happy," Hannah Borno, the magazine's new Spirituality Editor, wrote in the March edition. "The key to true contentment lies elsewhere." God and guidance would hardly seem to suit the "Cosmo girl." Media have mocked the magazine for asking what happens now after years of breathless stories about dressing sexy, finding men and having multiple orgasms....

    A cheerleader of the sexual revolution has second thoughts.A few weeks ago, a chirpy researcher from a London morning show asked me to appear on a TV debate about sex, along with an older, married couple who attend “swingers parties,” a teenage twit who notoriously stripped off her shirt in public in Ibiza and was rightly arrested, and Lorraine Candy, the editor of British Cosmopolitan. My role was to “even out the debate”—in other words, to be a rabidly right-wing, “no sex, please, we’re conservative” voice, and thus discredit the conservative viewpoint. But as we talked, the researcher, part of...
