Yeah, I know...I hope P.Diddy doesn't get involved in this one either...
Here's an interesting article from Salon by former Breakup Girl Lynn Harris about the new magazine somewhat-imperatively titled Conceive.
Someone interviewed for the article says that a magazine like this is a throwback, trying to take all the women and shove them back into the home-and-hearth roles they've left behind as women of the modern era. But having read one of the better infertility blogs out there, I have to say that clearly, there's a community that needs this magazine, if only to know that they are not the only ones in their pursuit of progeny.
Single me isn't subscribing. But there have been worse ideas for magazines, and (even not having read it yet) I don't think it's going to set feminism back. Truth is, women who want to conceive will buy it, read it, and glean what information they can. Women who don't want to conceive, or for whom this issue is simply not relevant, will just not buy it. That's the beauty of magazine subscriptions**--you don't have to get magazines you don't want to read.
