#Singlewhitegirlproblems: Magazine Edition

A pre-requisite for being a walking "first world problem" machine is having strong opinions...on everything...everything useless.

Here is an actual conversation at a happy hour last night about how I feel about magazines. (super important, right?)
MisterMess: I saw this awesome article in Vanity Fair...btw you would totally dig Vanity Fair. I'm surprised you don't read it.
Me: I have been boycotting it since they featured Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt on the cover as a suburban family while he and Jen were still going through their divorce.  Out of solidarity for Jen, I haven't touched it since.
(10 seconds pass by)
Me: Oh wait, that was "W" magazine. Why don't I read Vanity Fair again?  Oh yeah, I remember - because they only feature white people on their magazine covers.
MisterMess: Really?
Me: Yeah. Totes. They recently had the opportunity to feature several very talented women of color and what did they do? All white, all the time.
Email received 3.5 hours later:

Subject: You were wrong. April issue.

I stand corrected.
