Articles I, A Walking Dumpster Fire, Would Like To See In Women’s Magazines

Women’s magazines, a national treasure. They’re great for advice on fitness, dating, and fun places to jerk off your spouse; however, I’ve noticed a lack of representation for those of us who hate working out, haven’t dated since Reagan was in office, and still find the couch the best for a good old-fashioned handy. 

I’ve read too many articles that have never–and will never–apply to me, a walking dumpster fire. “How to turn your favorite blazer from day to night”? I own one blazer and it’s been in my closet longer than my high school boyfriend. 

I need women’s magazines to start appealing to the masses — the mismatched-sock-wearing, expired-milk-keeping, one-fork-owning, masses. Listen up, Marie Claire: the time for change is now. 

Here are some articles I would love to see in a women’s magazine:
