What Exactly is This?

Welcome to IDKAnything About Women. That title should sum up my reasoning for starting this blog, because I in fact know nothing about women. I really don't know shit about women. A woman raised me, women for a majority of my life have surrounded me and I have even had women want to date me. So clearly I should have some idea on how to communicate, interact and even someday procreate with one. Though I may have some idea how to do those things, in reality those elements are too on the surface, I am looking to get deep into the mind of women and I figured what better way to do it than become an expert in popular women's publications. Every man says he doesn't understand women, I'm not saying it can be done, but I hope to try and at least uncover a few insights along the way.

I'm not sure exactly how this blog will work or if will even serve a purpose, but I do know that my recent subscriptions to Vogue, Cosmopolitan, InStyle and a variety of other magazines have cost me quite a bit so there is incentive for me to continue writing and learning as much as I can. We'll see where it goes...

  • Brides-July 2011-Wait, I Can’t Just Have a Wedding?
  • Heyo everyone.  I know it’s been quite a long time since I have shared my lack of knowledge on the female gender. Sorry about that. I’ve been kind of busy trying to become an adult.  That’s a whole other topic in itself.  Anyway, despite my best efforts months ago, I do believe my knowledge of […]

  • InStyle-March 2011- Look At All the Pretty Pictures…
  • InStyle magazine. I was extremely excited because this issue had ‘500 pages of Spring Fashion!’.  This one took me a while due to the 500 pages. 500 pages seemed a little excessive.  This thing weighed about 3.4 pounds. At first I thought this was the magazine version of War and Peace.  Luckily InStyle isn’t much […]

  • SELF-March 2011-I Want To Talk About This, And This, And This…
  • Self Magazine.  Wow.  What an experience.  This magazine felt as if I was talking to a crazed, sleep deprived genius.  If Self were an actual woman, I feel that she would be divorced at least twice.  Anyway, the cover was great because the incredible Minka Kelly was on it.  The cover also claimed that there […]

  • Women’s Health-Special Beauty Bonus-April 2011-Bangs, not Fangs
  • And welcome to part two of our Women’s Health extravaganza.  Check out part one, if you haven’t already.  With this section I am going to focus on the ‘Special Beauty Bonus’ that was a part of the April edition of Women’s Health–only a separate ‘issue’ that was placed in the exact opposite direction of the […]

  • Women’s Health April 2011…Try to Remain Calm
  • Welcome back!  Our magazine today is Women’s Health. This is also our first two-part edition because there was a bonus feature on beauty in the back of the magazine—which was also informative so I felt it deserved its own section.  Anyway, from the title alone I could tell that this would be a more fitness/health […]

  • Vogue February 2011

  • First Post…Vogue Feb. 2011…Welcome to A Lot of Ads…
  • The first magazine I decided to sit down and read was Vogue from February 2011.  It has Kristen Stewart on the cover (the girl from Twilight) making some weird, sexy, zoolander type face.  I was immediately drawn to the sub-headline (not sure exactly what it’s called) “Perfect Hair at What Risk?” but we’ll get to […]

  • Cosmopolitan-March 2011

  • Cosmopolitan-March 2011-I’m a Visual Person
  • For my next foray into women’s magazines I decided to read Cosmopolitan.  Now, if we were comparing Vogue and Cosmo to actual women, I would say that Vogue is the smart, confident, motivated girl who went to grad school and is now settled down with a family.  If I were to describe Cosmo it would […]
