Detente of the sexes

Detente of the sexes

Earlier today I was at Barnes & Noble looking for a TV Guide.  (Disclaimer: I have been reading TV Guide since I was 8. It has a few more characters than General Hospital, but the plot is less ridiculous and much easier to follow.)

As I wandered through the magazine racks, I did a quick walk-by of sections labeled Men’s Interest and Women’s Interest.  Based on the magazine covers alone, I noticed something curious.

Men are interested in the following subjects:

  • Katy Perry
  • Kate Moss
  • Eva Longoria

While women are interested in the following subjects:

  • Taylor Swift
  • Heidi Klum
  • Nicole Kidman

Maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t really seem like the interests of men and women are that far apart.  Perhaps I could suggest a compromise, something in the general area of:

  • Rihanna
  • Cindy Crawford
  • Scarlett Johansson

Perhaps if we all work together, we could achieve a little harmony.  For the children.  (Disclaimer: I have no earthly clue how this compromise would be “for the children”.  It’s just the kind of thing you say in situations like this.)
