My son is going to be turning 9 in a few months & over the last year I have become increasingly aware of the magazines that are on display at grocery check outs; Cosmo, People, Enquire, etc. Here's the thing: if a store were to have Maxim available like that there would be a lot of problems for that store, but these womens' mags are no less raunchy. I mean everytime we go shopping my son's vision is filled with titles like "The Top 10 Naughty Sex Tricks" or "....'s Sex Life Exposed". It is really starting to get on my nerves. I have nothing against adult content & I greatly enjoy the sex life my husband & I have, but I do have a problem with adult content being the norm at the checkouts. We expect F-Street to stay hidden & at the book store mags like Maxim & Stuff are in the 18+ section, so why is Cosmo & the others an exception? They sell sex just like everyone else. Stupid double standards. >_<
Just my rant.
