#Leftist #politics are the latest #fashion

@InStyleMagazine EIC @LauraBrown99 blocked me on @Twitter

Women’s magazines are one of my biggest pet peeves. I want to read about fashion and makeup: I don’t want leftist politics shoved down my throat. I canceled my subscription to Allure when it became politicized: sad, as I was a charter subscriber.  Likewise, I didn’t re-subscribe to InStyle, as it became politicized under EIC Laura Brown.  Here’s a letter that I sent to InStyle:

When my subscription to InStyle expired, I chose not to re-subscribe. I did not re-subscribe, as the magazine had become politicized under the leadership of Laura Brown; moreover, I do not share her leftist politics.

While I was at the airport, I came across the Bada** Women Issue. First, why do you need to use coarse terms such as Bada**? Secondly, the issue did not feature any conservative women.

Why not Rep. Martha McSally (R, AZ-2)? She is a 2018 Republican candidate seeking election to the U.S. Senate. She became a colonel in the U.S. Air Force. She was the first American woman to fly in combat and the first female commander of a USAF fighter squadron. She successfully challenged military policy that required servicewomen stationed in Saudi Arabia to wear the abaya when they are off base. If that isn’t bada**, I don’t know what is.

Why not Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the UN? Why not any of the numerous outspoken conservative female commentators (Dana Loesch, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, among others)?

I subscribed to InStyle for fashion, beauty, and style. I do not want to have Laura Brown’s leftist politics shoved down my throat.

If women’s magazines won’t feature conservative women, then I will.  I’ve added a widget #Leftist #politics are the latest #fashion to the sidebar that will feature tweets criticizing women’s magazines.
