Men’s Health Mag Pulls Sexist Article And Apologizes



“An article entitled “The Secret to Talking Sports with Any Woman” in Men’s Health has incensed thousands of people online, garnering the magazine over 4800 mentions on Twitter. If the generalizing title wasn’t enough, the sub headline continues: “The things that interest you are unlikely to interest her, but you can still make a connection; here’s how.”

The piece is a fragment of an article, and it’s the lack of information and blind generalizations that make it so insulting. For the seductive sports secret, Men’s Health turned to Andrei Markovits, Ph.D. and coauthor of Sportista: Female Fandom in the United States. He reported: “Most women don’t care about stats.” Instead, apparently, “most women” would rather hear the stories behind the players.” *

The Largest Online News Show in the World. Hosted by Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian. LIVE STREAMING weekdays 6-8pm ET.

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. Young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations. (American Heritage Dictionary)

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
