2016 has really been a year for social change, hasn't it? Many things are changing. Looks like the millennial might be asserting themselves.

2017 should be interesting too.

Some people just won't be happy until the entire planet is gay.


Is he gay?

The boy on the cover?


Yes....here is a quote from one of his Tweets:


I knew he was gay.

Doubt the poster who made the gay reference did.

Stereotype assumption.

Meh...it's just a company trying to capitalize on another market that hasn't been capitalized on. Shocked there was never a "gothgirl/gothboy" from them.

If they can sell makeup to both sexes then think of the profits...that's all any company their size really cares about.

They are about to reap some big rewards from this campaign methinks....



Yes, skincare for men is one of the fastest growing markets.

Of course the bottom line is money. But, timing is crucial.


This isn't exactly a "skincare for men" type of promo. If you take a look at his tweets and his persona, he isn't really going after the typical heterosexual male....this campaign is solely to gain the market of the LGBTQ community which is LARGE and has not had representation like this before....I am SURE it was about the dollar signs.



He's a makeup artist.

The skincare post was not about him - - per se.

I happy for him, interestingly I don't use cover girl because their cosmetics are nothing but crap.

I get what you are saying, but it doesn't take much to assume a guy who dreams of being cover girl is gay.

It's a sterotype, but it's hard not to assume he's gay when you see him.

I've thought the same thing...but is it really the millennial's asserting themselves? How much does media affect them? I guess you could say I'm an evolving "Valley Girl".....that saw a lot of what Hollywood is all about...and I think it's foolish to believe that making gender bending "Hip" doesn't influence kids.....geez with MUCH less influence from media and technology. every girl I knew all wanted "Jordash" Jeans, largely fueled by Brooke Shields sexy ads at age 15....lol...back in the day where you had to sneak out your make-up and slutty clothes ! It honestly didn't make me a better person, just shallow and kinda sad thinking back on it.

Many of us would look back and cringe at unfortunate fashion decisions of our youth, we were playing, finding ourselves...what concerns me is that sexuality has become a fashion accessory that becomes deeper and harder to put into perspective as one matures and grows out of adolescence peer pressure and impulsive behavior.

So don't buy their magazine anymore. Oh wait, you are a guy and you probably don't buy it anyways right? Looks like this is a non-issue to you.



It's a make up brand, not a magazine. Just thought you might want to know.

Aside from that, I think it's a non-issue for everyone and I don't get why anyone would be bothered by it. It's just sensible marketing.


They do in fact have a magazine. Though, true, the point of this will be commercials and print ads.


Covergirl cosmetics has a magazine?

I just went to their website and the closest I could find was a newsletter. I'm interested...do you have a link?


It is now digital, covergirl magazine The last time I was able to find a print version offered was March 2016.

Nor have boys always even been called boys. Until the late 15th century the word 'girl' simply means a child of either sex. Boys, where they had to be differentiated, were referred to as 'knave girls' and girls in the female sense were called 'gay girls'.

Riddle me that batman.

This cover obviously offends you. That is your choice.

It doesn't bother me in the slightest and certainly doesn't affect me or anybody I know and I know a lot of people.


So, what the hell is the 'man and women' crap in the bible about then?

Personally I kind of like it just because I've gotten a lot of enjoyment out of seeing the comments from feminists claim he's appropriating women's culture or something only to get into arguments with other feminists that gender roles should be destroyed.

Truth be told I've looked up to a lot of guys who wore makeup like Sting, The Undertaker, and The Ultimate Warrior. That's more my style of makeup for men.

The LGBT agenda with the hands of the media and other ignorant people almost had me thinking I like boys as a five year old.


to have half your family and friends ridicule you

Wait a minute... how is it that your family called you gay as a child, yet you blame the modern "LGBT agenda" for that? If they were influenced as such, logically wouldn't they be accepting of you? It sounds more like you harbor a deep grudge. It's okay to let it go, you can even sing that Frozen song if you desire.

Homosexuality is not learned. Otherwise, who taught dogs?

I don't think that's produced by Covergirl cosmetics...the font in the masthead is a serif. Covergirl cosmetics uses a sans serif.

Small issue and OT, though.

I don't understand why they wouldn't use a transgender girl instead of a, you know...:

To be fair this may not be the first male Cover Girl. Look into androgyn insensitivity syndrome. There are some that speculate more than a few of the more androgynous models that were popular up until recently are actually males with AIS.

James is being presented as a boy.

Not a boy presented as a girl.

In a world where everything seems to be turning on it's side.
Where men are women and women are men and some men are 7yr old girls.
When this this stop?
Is this part of the politically correct inclusion for all?
Is this just shock and awe marketing?
Does this just set us closer to the demoralizing of our culture?

What are you thoughts on this new event from such an established brand?
Does it send the wrong message to girls and boys?
Does it send a message at all?



(I do not know how to embed but if you so please by all means)


I would like to say to you, ( apart from you ) Who really cares? People are whoever they want to be and people will always choose whatever they want to be regardless of what they read, see and hear. Media does have an effect but not all the world is connected to a media centric world yet still prefer to identify specifically as who ever they feel they are.

I just find threads like this a complete waste of time and shows maybe you just hate anyone that is not basically, man/women.

Odd.

What I find odd is your assumption.
Deny ignorance and read through the entire
thread before jumping to conclusions.
If you find threads like this to be a waste - then don't read them.
Head on over to the 60 million Hillary/Trump threads.
This thread was created to have a discussion and discussion was had by all.

I know. I'm just saying that there's a good chance this isn't the first time a biological male (the part that matters to bigots) has been a Cover Girl.

Pretty sure there have been Androgynous covers (males presented as women)

Can't find that Cover Girl was one of them.

By this time, with all the info out there, ignorance is by choice.
