I gave up on most of the print media because the articles were stupid and vapid for the most part. Little more than fashion magazines with a bunch of twinky young men I don't really find all that attractive. Also, the articles hardly ever touch on any people over the age of 35 and or who don't look like models. As a middle aged, bearish guy, I don't see any correlation in most of the print media to my own life experience or that has any serious relevance in what real LGBT people lives are like.
