    I would read it. I didn't know there was a paleo mag already out there - will need to check it out. But I have a thought: I just read Cordain's book, and if there is enough diff that Sisson felt compelled to create Primal, wouldn't it be better to have a Primal mag- just seeing as how most on this thread, I believe, self-identify as Primal? Even if there is significant overlap in the paleo/Primal worlds?
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

      Ugh, ever notice how we turn away when you talk about "lady issues"? We can't trust you to stick to the fun stuff.

      Incidently, I read an article in Psychology Today today that was very interesting, certainly would fit into such a mag(had it not alreayd been in one), dealing with WTH ratio, men's preferences, women's perception and how it's culturally influenced, and omega-3's. Unfortunately, it's not up on the site yet.

        Who gives a flying fuck about your gender bias?
        F 5 ft 3. HW: 196 lbs. Primal SW (May 2011): 182 lbs (42% BF)... W June '12: 160 lbs (29% BF) (UK size 12, US size 8). GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

          I think being able to address both adequately would help fill out the content of gender neutral mag. Would probably be harder to get enough content and readership going the single gender route. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but it seems that most mainstream women's magazines always seem to devolve to fashion and gossip to fill content.

          Regarding the second, maybe the mystery should be left a mystery?

            The magazine I'm interested in, would be akin to Shape or Women's Health. Many magazines already exist that cater to women's fitness and nutrition/health, but it would be different to have such a women's fitness mag with a paleo/primal focus.
            This thread has absolutely nothing to do with men- at all.

              This wouldn't be mainstream. It would be Paleo/Primal. Grokelles don't do fashion and gossip. And the only reason anyone feels the need for it is because the female perspective on nutrition and fitness is not being well represented or addressed currently.

              Mystery is good. Ignorance is not. Especially if you want a happy Grokelle in your life.

                  Paleobird(Robin?), who I was having a (sub-)conversation with. The male perspective on female issues makes the prospect of a meaningful gender-neutral mag unappealing.

                  So, who gives a flying fuck about what you think is biased?

                      I don't really see the point of a second magazine. As a man, gender-specific stuff is still relevant to me because hey, there are women in my life, and if I'm going to share knowledge about Paleo/Primal, I'd want to know about that information as well.

                      Which is why I think it's better for it to go into the current Paleo Magazine, especially since many of their contributors are already women, like Amy Kubal, the Paleo RD for the magazine and Robb Wolf.

                      If you want to see more women's related health issues, why not just write to them and suggest that?

                      That said, why is it always assumed men are automatically gonna be squeamish/disgusted by normal women's health stuff? Or am I just weird?

                        Not really, atleast not so far, anyways. A few women mentioned most sites don't deal with feminine issues; I explained the high negatives female issues have among men. Then Bunny called me gender-biased. Cest la vie, amirite?

                          That said, I'm apparently one of the rare men who isn't disgusted by women's health topics.
                          I disagree there is always room for niche publications and many have been successful. Competition is great and if you can produce a better product for consumers then do it.

                              Actually, I think that's part of the problem. I don't really give a crap what the latest in hot, sexy workout wear is. It's just going to get sweaty anyway, at least if you're doing it right.

                              If you don't want to learn about the "mystery bits", there are other men that are eager and willing to learn.

                              With live subjects even!

                                Competition is fine, but I'm not convinced a better product will be made. Consolidation does have its advantages. Or rather, market fragmentation does have its disadvantages to consumers.
