Teen Magazines

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐lately I have been reading the teen magazines YM and Seventeen and I've noticed one thing; they really annoy me. I feel like they are just for preps and the trendoid freaks. Well what about the other groups? The gangsters, punks, skaters, bikers, or whatever. They should really give recognition to the other people in our society. Maybe they want just the good teenagers around. They are not going to get what they want. Maybe they think if they print stuff up all about preps and trends everyone will follow.

Middle

What? Just because a girl who is not amazingly skinny for a model, the company won't sell anything? Well I can't exactly describe the clothes they wear, but I have never run across a person wearing the same thing. But in Seventeen they have a section called "School Zone" and they go around different schools and take pictures of the students. I can understand the way they dress and they do show different looks. Both magazines put out information about bands, but I don't listen to those bands. As a matter of fact, I hate those bands. They are alternative bands, and coming from me, they just suck.

Conclusion

The first reason is that my mom gave it to me and sometimes I can actually enjoy reading YM and my best friend likes Seventeen even though it annoys her sometimes. We'll sit down and flip through them when we get them and the first thing we'll notice (well besides the guys) is that all the advertisements show a girl and the first thing that comes to our mind would have to be the word "sluts." Well one thing I've noticed is that yes they do have white and black models now. But I'm still not seeing any Latino's or Indian girls. To conclude, I do share my opinion with many of my friends that they should not just stick to the trendoids and preps. If Seventeen and YM don't want anything to do with other groups, then they should make other magazines that can help with people like me and my friends. ...read more.
