Helen Gurley Brown – For 4th Wave Feminists

Helen Gurley Brown, the longtime editor of Cosmopolitan, got  pushed out of the top spot at the legendary magazine in ’96 because of a series of politically incorrect comments, according to a forthcoming tell-all bio. At 86, she remains international editor of Cosmo. Last year, Slate named her the 13th most powerful American over 80 (above Hugh Hefner and Jimmy Carter).
Jezebel considers her legacy. Was it “an open attitude towards sexuality or a bunch of college girls putting rouge on their nipples — or are they the same thing?”

UPDATE: Screw the octogenarian list, in this month’s Playboy, the 55th anniversary issue, Brown comes in at number 11 in a list of the 55 most important people in sex in the last 55 years (right behind Madonna). Kinsey’s number one. Hef, magnanimously, puts himself at three. The most glaring problem with the list, as Daniel Radosh points out on The Daily Beast, is that no African Americans figure in. Um, Josephine Baker? Chuck Berry? LL Cool J? Magic Johnson? Dolemite?

    What an ironic middle name. She looks a gold lamme scarecrow.

    I just got a quick message for the webmaster of this website. I was looking into your SEO data, just out of curiousity, and I found that you are lacking SEO meta tags. If you know what these are, then you really need to take a look at them, and fix them. If you have no clue, don’t worry, just use a good WP plugin. Never use one of those free ones that have several security breaches, make sure you buy one. I use this: http://tinyurl.com/3vc2cus but feel free to use another if you know another great paid one that you know works. Anyways, I hope you make this huge change and your search engine rankings boost your traffic. Good luck, if you have any questions, feel free to email me.

  • sinetron said:

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • Sherika Belflower said:

    great post, very informative. I’m wondering why the other experts of this sector don’t understand this. You must continue your writing. I’m sure, you have a great readers’ base already!|

  • film indonesia said:

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Generally I don’t learn article on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do so! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thanks, quite great article.

  • mermaid in love said:

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
