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

    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.
