why are some people so obsessed with fashion magazines? all i see are endless ad campaigns and only a few articles. it doesn't make sense.

Let’s say a 15 year old boy lives in a house with his dad and his six older brothers. He lives in a town where if you do not fit the stereotypes assigned to your gender, you are ridiculed for them. He tells his dad and his brothers that he’s going to off to football practice but in reality, he’s sneaking off to the store to pick up the latest issue of Vogue. He reads his Vogue under his covers every night with a flash light because he hopes that one day, he can achieve his long life goal of becoming a Fashion Designer. 

Let’s say a girl is getting bullied at school because she has a strange teeth and her dentist won’t allow her braces. She buys a fashion magazine and she takes one look at these beautiful models with strange facial features. She idolizes models like Lindsey Wixson and Georgia May Jagger because they share the same gap-tooth teeth as her. She feels beautiful and less lonely in the world because she knows that you can be beautiful even if you have imperfections on your face. This magazine with her favourite model on it gives her hope, that one day, maybe she can be one of these beautiful women on the front cover of her magazine. 

Let’s say a 17 year old gay boy buys as many fashion magazines as he can so he can collect every editorial of his favourite models. He is an aspiring fashion journalist and articles written by his favourite fashion writers inspire him. He is bullied constantly for his sexuality and he is always getting beaten up and verbally abused just for being gay whenever he steps outside of the house. He finds comfort in fashion because it makes him feel a little less alone in the world. He hopes one day he could be the new face of Prada, or maybe he could be an award-winning fashion journalist. He dreams of surrounding himself with people just like him who won’t relentlessly torment him based on the way he walks or his sexual orientation. Fashion makes this boy feel like he isn’t all alone in this world. And this boy is me. 

Don’t you see? Fashion magazines aren’t just about glossy pages filled with clothes and campaigns etc…These magazines are a shining beacon of hope for people who sometimes may feel alone in this world. Fashion is such a huge community. Fashion feels like home to some people. Sometimes these magazines are all the hope we have left in this lonely world, and these magazines inspire us to work harder each day in order to feel accepted finally. 

THAT is why fashion magazines are so important.

"You’re outrageously right about everything; it’s almost scary. You sense the truth, you just do that too much. In a way, you’ve always done that I just feel compelled to acknowledge it right now slightly a bit more intensely so as that it finds some improper or proper expression. You know these people who look at you and make you instantly know that it’s not judgement they’re trying to pass through but genuineness of intuition? You’re one of them — I think. You’re one of these very rare ones; You demand of me to be honest with myself and I’m indeed trying…I’m trying to do that because I want to be honest with myself too. I truly want to, I’m sick of fooling myself to the point of disgust or satisfying false needs of mine. And you can’t even believe how grateful I am to you for being you, for expressing your thoughts about my choices, the way I handle things, my overall actions. You go ahead and continue saying it as it is (as how you personally feel it actually is) because I care, because we both are, because I’m convinced we both stand for our convictions strongly enough and this, here, now, is worth it. All of your presentiments and feelings matter to me because you matter to me in every way possible. And I’m just so lucky to have you in my life; you being the judge, you being the jury, you being yourself and at the same time fully allowing me to be me. My love, you are outrageous. Outrageously lovable and sincere.This is very pointless and might feel exaggerated on my part and yet all I want to say tonight is: thank you. This is occasionally too real to function but thank you for that too. We can handle each other’s truth, we can do that. And we can also refuse to see the day flying before we seize it; I hope we’ll always be doing that too. Because it’s us, because we’re here, because we talk language, because all is always now, because we know the "how" and screw the "why"…"

oh yeah
