Vogue editor-in-chief says it’s important to “take a stand” when deciding which female politicians to feature

First Lady Melania’s spokeswoman fired back: “To be on the cover of Vogue doesn’t define Mrs. Trump, she’s been there, done that long before she was First Lady.”

From The Independent: Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour has said it’s important to “take a stand” when deciding which influential women in politics the magazine features on the cover.

Wintour was interviewed by CNN ahead of the Met Gala, which is scheduled to take place in less than a month’s time on Monday 6 May. During the interview, the Condé Nast artistic director was questioned over the women in politics who she chooses to profile in the magazine, having previously featured former first lady Michelle Obama and US senator Kamala Harris.

“If you’re talking about the first lady or senator Harris, obviously these are women that we feel are icons and inspiring to women from a global perspective,” Wintour said.

Wintour added that in the present political climate, she believes it’s important to “take a stand”, and that she doesn’t think you can “try and please everybody all the time”.

“You have to stand up for what you believe in, and you have to take a point of view,” the 69-year-old said stated.

Before Wintour learned how to “take a stand”

CNN anchor Christiane Amanpour pointed out that the American magazine has featured more women from the Democratic party than the Republican party. “We profile women in the magazine that we believe in the stand that they’re taking on issues. We support them in the fact that we feel that they are leaders,” Wintour said in response.

The Vogue editor-in-chief stated that the defeat of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 US presidential election made it even more apparent that more women are needed in leadership roles. In December 1998, Clinton became the first US first lady to be featured on the cover of Vogue, during her husband Bill Clinton’s tenure as president.

“I felt that the first lady at that time had behaved in a very brave way,” Wintour stated. “So we felt it was a time to support her and to stand up for women.”

Former first lady Obama was featured on the cover of Vogue on three occasions while she was in the White House. Wintour stated that, in her opinion, Obama “redefined” the role of the first lady, a position that she held from 2009 until 2017.”She made the White House a place for everyone.”

“Glamour” magazine to cease print operations, move to digital only

 

Imagine my distress…

Condé Nast publishes left-wing propaganda. Good riddance to this garbage at the grocery stores.

From Fortune: Condé Nast announced Tuesday that it plans to shut down print operations for one of its glossy publications. The 80-year-old Glamour magazine will publish its last print issue in January, before shifting to a digital-only operation, the New York Times reported.

“This is my plan, because it makes sense,” the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Samantha Barry, said. “[Digital is] where the audiences are, and it’s where our growth is. That monthly schedule, for a Glamour audience, doesn’t make sense anymore.

Last year, Condé Nast scaled back Glamour‘s publication frequency from once every month, to just 11 issues a year. Condé Nast last year lost a reported $120 million, which prompted its decision to cut the magazine’s monthly publishing schedule, and also sell three of its other titles: Brides, Golf Digest, and W.

Despite the decision to cut its print magazine, Glamour has maintained a stable 2.2 million paid subscriber base over the last three years, according to the Times. Barry added that the magazine might continue to publish special issues moving forward, including its annual Women of the Year award, and topical issues about money and power. The web magazine will remain free until further notice.

It’s National Suicide Prevention Week: Check out the “crave death” meme Lena Dunham posted

Lena Dunham: Inspiring young women to “not settle”

National Suicide Prevention Week began Sept. 9 and goes through Sept. 15. If you know of anyone who needs suicide prevention resources, click here.

The Hillary-loving feminist Lena Dunham started the “Lenny Letter” website described as “feminism, style, health & politics – unfiltered.”

As a feminist, Lena doesn’t believe one should shame another woman in public. She was mad when Jezebel criticized her Vogue photo shoot and called what they said, “bullsh*t.”

As a feminist, Lena is fine with her body and doesn’t like to be Photoshopped (although she frequently is).

As a feminist, Lena believes the way that women are spoken to on social media is shocking and comparable to the abuse of Guantanamo prisoners.

As a feminist, Lena is an “advocate” for young women everywhere. She is a strong woman who “empowers” other women.

Or so she would have you believe…

Lena posted the above meme on her Instagram account on Sept. 9, just in time to kick off the week. Her caption: “Do not settle for second best this week!!!”

Stuff like this MAKES ME MAD. Suicide is not a joke. I had a cousin who committed suicide and know of a couple other people who attempted suicide.

Lena obviously missed the memo that the majority of college students say they’re stressed, with many reporting suicidal thoughts.

Netflix has a show called “13 Reasons Whythat revolves around teenagers committing suicide and self harm. It’s been criticized for glamorizing suicide and several families have blamed the series for inspiring their children to kill themselves.

In 2016, the New York Times reported that suicides hit a 30-year high, with an alarming increase among girls ages 10 to 14.

Memes like this one that Lena posted do not inspire women. This type of “empowering” feminism is bad form and a horrible example coming from a “role model” of today’s feminist movement.

Shame on you, Lena.

When SJWs bash their own: Vogue magazine apologizes for "gender-fluidity" cover story

vogue cover
Back in March, SJWs slammed Vogue for their lack of diversity on the cover that celebrated “the modern American woman” by featuring models of different ethnicities, skin tones and body types. Across social media, Vogue was criticized for staying inside the fashion industry’s narrow parameters (oh the horror!).
Now SJWs are upset that Vogue dare to tackle gender fluidity in the wrong manner. Heaven forbid a fashion magazine features models who talk about clothes swapping.
Seems likes SJWs are just as insufferable as feminists when you don’t follow their rules.
From Fox News: Vogue is sorry. The magazine released a statement on Friday apologizing for their recent cover story featuring Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik.
In an interview with the publication, Hadid and Malik playfully talk about borrowing each other’s clothes, which led to the magazine titling their piece, “Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are part of a new generation embracing gender fluidity.”
“I shop in your closet all the time, don’t I?” Hadid says in the article. “Yeah, but same,” replies Malik. “What was that T-shirt I borrowed the other day?”
Vogue readers quickly took to social to voice their concerns over the piece, calling the magazine out for not featuring real people who identify as non-binary or gender-fluid. “Think Vogue is a bit confused on what gender fluidity is! Wearing your gf’s T-shirt does not make you gender fluid,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Is Vogue aware that there r actual, real life, gender fluid people out there,” another person wrote. “Vogue went from 100 to 0 real quick,” shared another reader.
Following backlash on social media, Vogue issued an apology.
“The story was intended to highlight the impact the gender-fluid, non-binary communities have had on fashion and culture,” read a statement by a Vogue spokeswoman. “We are very sorry the story did not correctly reflect that spirit we missed the mark.”
“We do look forward to continuing the conversation with greater sensitivity.”
