It’s about time a celebrity’s mother called out the obvious and blatant sexism of “gender labeling” on magazine displays around America. Ariana Grande’s mom, you’re a hero:
We’re joking, of course. But Ariana agrees with her “feminist mama”:
Actually Ariana and Ariana’s mom, it’s the magazines who like the displays because they want their magazines targeted at their readers. The magazines Ariana says are read by men — Cosmopolitan, Vogue and Elle — all have a readership predominately made up of women at87%, 87% and 91% respectively. And the two examples she gives for men’s magazines read by women — Forbes and Robb Report — have mostly male readers: 65% for Forbes, 74% for Robb Report.
Sorry guys, this isn’t sexism. It’s called marketing to the correct audience.
