Oh Yeah? I hate Cosmo with everything I have.
So this came packaged with regular Cosmo….I’m sorry where’s the Black Issue? First of all Cosmo is already problematic in the fact that everything it contains is geared towards the satisfaction of men by women. How to be prettier. How to do your hair. What to wear. Sex…and more sex tips…that have nothing to do with your own pleasure.
Now even Latinas are able to identify with Cosmo! How wonderful!
Not to mention the stereotypical language use present on the cover…mami..? I’ve read through and found this “premiere issue” to be a major stretch in trying to make latina women feel included. Its literally the most. They incorporate spanish terms here and there…but the ads still feature mostly white women.
So I’m not confident enough? Is that the problem? Hunh.
Every damn day I struggle. So what if I’m hesitant? So what if I’m nervous or need a little push? So what if what I’m thinking doesn’t always show on my face and how I appear?
I need someone who is interested in me as a person, not my visual display of confidence. Miss me with that shit advice.
