It’s time for the latest installment of “I read the chick mags so you don’t have to.” Here’s what your wives, girlfriends, daughters, and others are reading in the April issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine:
Normally, you wouldn’t think the vapid, anti-male magazine would blame a woman for rape or–worse–murder. But you would be wrong.
April’s Cosmo blames late actress Adrienne Shelly for her murder at the hands of illegal alien, Diego Pillco. Shelly was murdered by Pillco, after she confronted him about loud construction noise in the building that housed her office. He feared she’d report him to police, and he’d be deported.
If only she’d been quiet and not confronted him, if only she had shut her mouth, she’d be alive today, claims Cosmo “writer” Michelle Stacey, in “Special Report: The Dangerous Mistake Gutsy Women Make.” Yup, it’s all Shelly’s fault:
When a guy pulls an obnoxious move–like stealing your prime parking spot–it’s natural to want to confront the jerk. After reading this, you’ll see it’s safer to hold your tongue. . . .
According to Pillco (there were no witnesses), their argument escalated to cursing and shoving. . . . Shelly’s story is a frightening reminder of the danger that sometimes can result from following assertive impulses.
Translation: Shelly overreacted to what amounted to a stolen parking spot. She asked for the violent response. She should have shut up.
A caption over a photo of Shelly screams:
Actress Set Off Illegal’s “Killer” Rage by Calling Him “S.O.B.”
It’s apropos that actess Eva Longoria graces the cover of the issue in question. She’s a strong supporter of illegal aliens and amnesty. Using Cosmo’s warped logic, maybe that’s why she’s alive and so successful in her acting career.
Hmmm . . . is this really what Helen Gurley Brown had in mind when she invented the “Cosmo Woman”?
Blaming the victim for the murder committed by an illegal alien–that’s the new niche of a magazine that is anything but “Cosmopolitan.”
