Sauce for the gander, sauce for the goose

I was dragged out to a big big park this afternoon to attend a fit fest for women. It was actually an event to promote a newish women’s health magazine. Activities ranged from riding a mechanical bull, boxing, cardio classes, putt-putt golf, rock climbing, trapez-ing, to less energetic ones like vitamin shopping, natal information and make-up. Guess which had the longest line?

There was a small tent for men but I think it was only so the guys could have a place to sit. What did they have in there? Foosball and Air Hockey. I now know that I suck at Foosball.

We signed up for a year’s subscription to the mag. What I’m interested in seeing is if the concept and content style translates well from their male counterpart-which was the original. I found the latter to be full of interesting trivia, the kind of reading that’s entertaining on the dunny or at the hairdressers but which doesn’t necessarily change your lifestyle but lets you dream it might.

While flipping through the complimentary copy that came with the showbag (A.K.A. goodie bag), I saw spreads on maternity, sports fashion and understanding the male creature. Oh dear.

At least I can perve the models.

Evecho’s newsy bits

News, updates and links from the lesbian and publishing ‘verse that interest me, my current projects, keeping up with authors and sharing musings on middle-class life, gourmet adventures and comparisons between East/West perspectives. My opinions will likely be linearly logical and gayly bent, as they tend to be.
