Chow Hey, It’s OK…

I don’t read Glamour, as I’m too busy living it. But someone left the September ‘06 issue in the can, so I flipped through it. And, uh, wow. Women’s magazines are really compelling. I especially enjoyed “Hey, It’s OK…”, a regular Glamour featurette that let’s women know that, you know, it’s okay. Some of the items on the list are unisex—it’s okay “…if you suck at meditiating,” “…to flip to the end of a book you aren’t loving,” “…if you think a friend’s baby is kinda funny-looking”—but there was one item that was definitely for gals only.
Hey, It’s OK… to eat really sharp, crusty bread that hurts and wonder, how in God’s name will I deal with childbirth?
There would be hell to pay if a men’s magazine suggested that the pain of childbirth was in any way comparable to the pain of eating crusty bread.
