Internalizing My Vogue Subscription: Buyer Beware (Part 1)


Women’s magazines “give me a weird mixture of anticipation and dread, a sort of stirred-up euphoria. Yes! Wow! I can be better starting from right this minute! Look at her! Look at her! But right afterward, I feel like throwing out all my clothes and everything in my refrigerator and telling my boyfriend to never call me again and blow torching my whole life. I’m ashamed to admit that I read them every month” (Wolf, 1991, p. 62).
