I probably am, but I was judging one such moron flicking through the 'naked'/'lesbian'/'soap star porn shot' or whatever the main focus of whichever magazine it was and I felt like saying why not buy Razzle and be a bit more upfront about it all.

blokes that age are a bit obsessed though aren't they, think i'd rather find my ds(15) reading nuts or whatever rather than razzle.

I am fed up of seeing massive breasts and lesbian shots next to Mother and Baby/Hello at the newstands. Can't we ensure that the covers are covered?

they would not last 5 mins on my beta male thread

YANBU, they should just buy a wank mag and have done.

Do men really buy these? When I was at school (in days of yore when dragons lived) these were the kind of magazines 14/15 year old boys read on the bus.

Lauriefairycake Wed 01-Oct-08 18:04:59

thankfully I know no men that would buy or read this - surely only for boys

if there were actual saddo men that did then no, yanbu

FIL buys these. The man is 55 and I find it rather off putting when they are scattered all around the kitchen table.

He also has all those naked lady trade calendars that before I realised he had them I thought had died out.

I do confess that on grumpy moody days I have moved them from the stand in WHSmiths and put them next to Total Carp magazine. I don't even know why.

YANBU. Misogynistic, repetitive, lowest-common-denominator crap.
I do worry that teenage boys are being influenced by them as well.

Well, you will be pleased to learn that apparently
- according to the sales figures - these kind of mags are in decline.

That's the good news!

He also regularly talks about how attractive girls like Fearne Cotton and other presenters are, not realising how lecherous he sounds.

they are no better worse than heat etc imo

SaintRiven Wed 01-Oct-08 18:11:31

I wish they'd cover the, umm, covers. Don't need to see finat fake boobs when i'm in the superamrket.

PootleAndThePoseysMum Wed 01-Oct-08 18:13:40

YANBU at all. I really hate the way these magazines are displayed right beside family @ child publications but not as much as it galls me when The Daily Sport/Daily Star with some naked tart squatting on a football with the headline 'Win this Football' - boak - is situated at the knee level of my toddler on the bottom shelf of the newspaper stand - Why?

I complained to our local Tesco that they should be put up higher. I didn't want my DDs staring at them when they went to pick a comic. They didn't but did move them nearer to the car/bike/manny type mags.

noonki Wed 01-Oct-08 18:15:19

they are a load of shite, as are heat etc zippiti

stretchmarkqueen Wed 01-Oct-08 18:37:38

Aren't they supposed to have them blue covers on?? Our sainsbury's do, but the 'men' after they've had a quick look, don't put them back!! So I do!!
I must say, it does put off a few men when there's a crazy lady putting them back behind the covers muttering how disgusting they are!

stretchmarkqueen Wed 01-Oct-08 18:38:21

oh and YANBU! They are vile and disgusting and not really the thing for a supermarket!!
