Teen Vogue got a lot of appreciative buzz last year by being so much more woke about overweight lesbian body shaming issues than you’d expect from a magazine aimed at affluent fashion-crazy tweens who are listed in their middle school yearbooks as Most Likely to Develop Anorexia.

But then it turned out that this wasn’t a genius business strategy like everybody had assumed: this year Teen Vogue announced it was halting its print edition.

Now we learn the identity of the sexy young fashion icon who will be the Guest Editor of what may well be the last print issue of Teen Vogue.

From Politico:

Hillary Clinton guest-edits Teen Vogue print edition
By CRISTIANO LIMA 11/08/2017 11:59 AM EST

Hillary Clinton guest-edited one of the last print editions of Teen Vogue, which is set to debut in December, the former Democratic presidential nominee and the magazine announced Wednesday.

“Teen Vogue takes teen girls seriously and understands that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive,” Clinton said in a statement released by the Vogue sister publication on the anniversary of her electoral loss to President Donald Trump.

Clinton will also serve as a keynote speaker at the Teen Vogue Summit, the first of its kind, in Los Angeles on Dec. 1-2.

The issue, set to hit newsstands on Dec. 5, “is a celebration of resistance and resilience,” Clinton wrote Wednesday, and will feature personal contributions from the former secretary of state, including an essay addressed to her adolescent self.

“Believe in yourself. You’re going to do great,” Clinton wrote in a letter to herself, according to an excerpt released by the magazine Wednesday.

Teen Vogue’s parent company Condé Nast announced last week that the magazine would be terminating its print edition, cutting nearly 80 jobs, making Clinton one of the last to serve as its guest editor.

The publication, which saw something of a political resurgence by leaning into the heated climate surrounding Clinton’s bout with Trump last year, will continue to have an online presence. Its final print edition date has not yet been announced.

    That may be a factor in why Queen Elizabeth wears those hats, but they're not really ostentatious, at least from a historical perspective. The monarchy is inherently a conservative institution, and within the queen's own memory, it was very common for British women (at least of a certain social class) to wear such purely decorative hats.

    On a only slightly more serious note.

    The left has been using its infiltration of sexual education in order to tell young people that they won't know if they are "gay" unless they try it.

    The Teen Vogue & the LGBTQP..... would love it if Hillary would be an open advocate for "bisexual" experimentation.

  9. Well, as a disinterested observer, I observe that just when the irrelevance of HRC ought to be stunningly obvious to even the most casual and uninterested observer, Teen Vogue demonstrates that failure can be recorded, amplified and broadcast to a new generation of unwilling recipients.

    But no one can deny that it is a just reward for the HRC pactum pactorum with Old Scratch. Hillary screwed by the Prince of Darkness is condign punishment – and that Prince is Satan, not Barack Who Sayin Obama.

    Do overweight lesbians have body shaming issues? I always thought that one of the perks of being a lesbian was not having to harbor shame over how overweight you let your body get. And getting to shame everyone else for shaming you with the shame you don’t have to be ashamed of. Anyway…

    My grand unified theory of the woke ladymag microtrend of the last year was that this was a last gasp of a dying industry. Either it was an effort to maybe inject some last-ditch relevance, or SJW-types were the last ones left to turn out the lights after everybody else had bolted.

    Lesbians may not have to worry as much about appearance in attracting a partner. But they have to live in the same world as us, a world in which men and women alike treat attractive people better. They're also more likely to be mentally disturbed, and those people need positive reinforcement more than you (presumably) or I.
    , @Forbes
    Based on public observations, I'd say there's no evidence that lesbians have body shaming issues--otherwise they'd do something about it. As well, there are so many land whales walking around, overweight lesbians have plenty of company to hide (blend in) amongst.

    You beat me to it. I show this video to everyone that asks me why Hillary Clinton lost.

    While the dancers in this video are extremely talented and the video certainly appeals to gays like Robbie Mook, Hillary's campaign manager, and the young urban professional women manning her operation in Brooklyn, how does this video appeal to a Black male auto worker in Cleveland or a White working class guy in Michigan or Wisconsin? It doesn't.

    Only a campaign completely subsumed in hubris, one that is spiritually and culturally removed from working class Americans would ever think this video was even remotely a good optic. These people are clueless.

    I knew the Clinton campaign had a Gogol-meets-Ernst Jünger quality of disembodied surrealism.

    Which is what made the side of beef video clip so hamartia-amok/hubris-undone perfect.

    But this is...it's.... This is political autism level: rain man on steroids hitting himself with hammers.

    Re: the SPECIAL THANKS screen at the vid's end. "Ellen and Howard Rowlson-Hall" appear to be the parents of

    #PANTSUITPOWER

    On Sunday Oct 2, 2016 over 200 pantsuit wearing Hillary supporters gathered together to perform a dance founded in unity, love, and inclusivity. The event was organized and video directed by Celia and her partner Mia Lidofsky. The dance was co-choreographed by Celia and Crishon Landers. The video currently has 5.5 million views and sparked several flashmobs across the country. Watch the video here and here are links to some of the various press: ELLE // VOGUE // WASHINGTON POST // THE GUARDIAN // VICE
     

    Mia Lidofsky is, one assumes, the offspring of the Diana and Sheldon Lidofsky of the SPECIAL THANKS. Sheldon appears to be a gastroenterologist.

    ...Celia's recent choreography includes the last three seasons of GIRLS, "The Incredible Jessica James" featuring Jessica Williams, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, the viral video she also co-directed, "Pantsuit Power" for HRC, and Alicia Keys' "In Common." She was the movement consultant on the Indie Spirit Award nominated THE FITS. Rowlson-Hall's commercial work includes H&M, Derek Lam, Lord and Taylor, 3M, Nordstrom, Lee Jeans, Kate Spade and Aritzia, as well as music videos for artists such as Alicia Keys, MGMT, Chromeo, Sleigh Bells, SebastiAn and Toro Y Moi.
     
    See elsewhere on that gal's vanity site for the "mother of god"/matriarchal religion element.

    Never forget:

    Hillary was the choice of the Hive on both coasts and in the middle. Her cultic believers took to the streets after the inauguration in January to objectify themselves as sex organs while screeching that no really they mean it they didn't want the big blonde alpha male victor to grab them there.

  20. I will probably buy this memorable and collectible issue of Teen Vogue since it can accompany my silly 2010 September issue of The Economist. My collection of the foibles of rag owners. In the Economist issue they explain how India will soon economically outpace China, because, err .., err .., because of the fungibility of each country’s peasants! Everyone everywhere is the same in 2010. And also because of India’s stable democracy and China older demography!

    Didn’t you know India pioneered a world beater $2,000 car? *Advantage India* The editors gleefully say oozing satisfaction. Yeah. Right, guys.

    There is a curious part at the 2:05 minute mark.

    In a stirring narrative (background music and all) about the plight of the white middle class Trump supporters:

    "..they haven't had a real vacation in years, there stuck on a sh**ty obamcare bronze plan, where you can't even get a f**ckin' Percocet!....."

    Is this trolling?

    Or does the creator of this video really believe that lack of access to pills is part of the plight of the white middle class?

    , @Jack Highlands
    A f------ white male, what I saw in the video was dozens of talented and charming black and brown men, ie the talented ten thousandth, dancing with our women, and if there were white men at all - I saw none - they were far in the background (there were the usual white noodles of indeterminate sex highlighted). All of which tells me the production decisions were made by Jews.

    Thank God the time for pure sour grapes is over. As you and e remind us, these people lost a big battle last year. They can lose the war.

  38. Well, most everybody who’s been working at Teen Vogue is going to need a new job soon, and this is easy signaling that their publication hired the right sort of people so they can move on and get a new job.

    I think those sort of incentives and the expectation that any publication can go belly up probably contributes to the extraneous Wokeness in publications that don’t benefit from it in distribution or sales.

    It's OK to be a white woman... if you thrill to the idea of dancing with hunky Men of Color, occasional Pajama Boys with yoga-studio physiques, and other pretty women.

    It's OK to be a white man... if that deal works for you.

    As far as appeal to purple-state swing voters? Probably not so much.

    You beat me to it. I show this video to everyone that asks me why Hillary Clinton lost.

    While the dancers in this video are extremely talented and the video certainly appeals to gays like Robbie Mook, Hillary's campaign manager, and the young urban professional women manning her operation in Brooklyn, how does this video appeal to a Black male auto worker in Cleveland or a White working class guy in Michigan or Wisconsin? It doesn't.

    Only a campaign completely subsumed in hubris, one that is spiritually and culturally removed from working class Americans would ever think this video was even remotely a good optic. These people are clueless.

    Compare and Contrast.

    There is a curious part at the 2:05 minute mark.

    In a stirring narrative (background music and all) about the plight of the white middle class Trump supporters:

    “..they haven’t had a real vacation in years, there stuck on a sh**ty obamcare bronze plan, where you can’t even get a f**ckin’ Percocet!…..”

    Is this trolling?

    Or does the creator of this video really believe that lack of access to pills is part of the plight of the white middle class?

    The video I see may not be the one you are referring to, there are no scenes with dancers. Professionally produced, with the narrator ascribing the Deplorable vote for Turmp as a Fcuk You, over a solemn dirge soundtrack. If this was a tool to persuade people outside the Brooklyn bubble, then, yeah, pretty clueless. But was it?

    Pardon me, but I think you (and others) are still missing something.

    The Hillary video exemplifies The Establishment's narrow sense of what Americans are to celebrate. Many of those who voted for Mr. Trump are sick of it. The ad certainly helped her lose by driving those not seen in the production to the polls.

    The Trump video is notable for including the speaker's suspicion that he (Trump) may not intend to deliver, followed by the statement that people should still vote for him to send a message.*

    It is hard to say at this point which video is the more revealing.

    A f—— white male, what I saw in the video was dozens of talented and charming black and brown men, ie the talented ten thousandth, dancing with our women, and if there were white men at all – I saw none – they were far in the background (there were the usual white noodles of indeterminate sex highlighted). All of which tells me the production decisions were made by Jews.

    She's a ROCK star, which means her fanbase tends toward male, like you and Jim Don Bob. Coming out would kill the fantasy, which is why she felt it necessary to do an interview with Out magazine all the way back in 1994 to neither confirm nor deny that she was lesbian or bisexual.

    The Runaways show was the first I ever saw at the late, lamented Rat in Boston. I was the same age as the members of the band, 17, and had to sneak in. The opening act, locals Reddy Teddy, was far superior. But to a 17-year old guy, the sight of 5 relatively hot young girls playing loud rock music competently was remarkable. I never thought that Currie or Jett would be the breakout member of the band; Lita Ford was hotter than both of them and was by far the best musician in the group. I saw them again in a club setting after Currie had left the band and Jett was handling most of the vocals, and they were just mailing it in waiting for the end.

    There's no logical reason for Jett to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but she's not alone in that.

    #PANTSUITPOWER

    On Sunday Oct 2, 2016 over 200 pantsuit wearing Hillary supporters gathered together to perform a dance founded in unity, love, and inclusivity. The event was organized and video directed by Celia and her partner Mia Lidofsky. The dance was co-choreographed by Celia and Crishon Landers. The video currently has 5.5 million views and sparked several flashmobs across the country. Watch the video here and here are links to some of the various press: ELLE // VOGUE // WASHINGTON POST // THE GUARDIAN // VICE

    Mia Lidofsky is, one assumes, the offspring of the Diana and Sheldon Lidofsky of the SPECIAL THANKS. Sheldon appears to be a gastroenterologist.

    …Celia’s recent choreography includes the last three seasons of GIRLS, “The Incredible Jessica James” featuring Jessica Williams, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, the viral video she also co-directed, “Pantsuit Power” for HRC, and Alicia Keys’ “In Common.” She was the movement consultant on the Indie Spirit Award nominated THE FITS. Rowlson-Hall’s commercial work includes H&M, Derek Lam, Lord and Taylor, 3M, Nordstrom, Lee Jeans, Kate Spade and Aritzia, as well as music videos for artists such as Alicia Keys, MGMT, Chromeo, Sleigh Bells, SebastiAn and Toro Y Moi.

    See elsewhere on that gal’s vanity site for the “mother of god”/matriarchal religion element.

    Never forget:

    Hillary was the choice of the Hive on both coasts and in the middle. Her cultic believers took to the streets after the inauguration in January to objectify themselves as sex organs while screeching that no really they mean it they didn’t want the big blonde alpha male victor to grab them there.

    Do overweight lesbians have body shaming issues? I always thought that one of the perks of being a lesbian was not having to harbor shame over how overweight you let your body get. And getting to shame everyone else for shaming you with the shame you don't have to be ashamed of. Anyway...

    My grand unified theory of the woke ladymag microtrend of the last year was that this was a last gasp of a dying industry. Either it was an effort to maybe inject some last-ditch relevance, or SJW-types were the last ones left to turn out the lights after everybody else had bolted.

    Based on public observations, I’d say there’s no evidence that lesbians have body shaming issues–otherwise they’d do something about it. As well, there are so many land whales walking around, overweight lesbians have plenty of company to hide (blend in) amongst.

  64. Somehow _Teen Vogue_ got me on their mailing list, presumably because I had ordered from a website that sold them my address. I got a year’s worth of free issues, designed to hook me into subscribing. I haven’t been a teen in quite some time, but I can’t imagine a more depressing guide through adolescence: fashions I could never afford, girls with glamour internships at design or publishing companies that no girl could get without family connections or enough inherited wealth to take an unpaid internship over that part-time job at the local Gap. I used to wonder who DID read it, because during my teen years, you had to save just to buy the far less high-end stuff in _Seventeen_.

    * Seriously, on this one.

    She’s a ROCK star, which means her fanbase tends toward male, like you and Jim Don Bob. Coming out would kill the fantasy, which is why she felt it necessary to do an interview with Out magazine all the way back in 1994 to neither confirm nor deny that she was lesbian or bisexual.

    The Runaways show was the first I ever saw at the late, lamented Rat in Boston. I was the same age as the members of the band, 17, and had to sneak in. The opening act, locals Reddy Teddy, was far superior. But to a 17-year old guy, the sight of 5 relatively hot young girls playing loud rock music competently was remarkable. I never thought that Currie or Jett would be the breakout member of the band; Lita Ford was hotter than both of them and was by far the best musician in the group. I saw them again in a club setting after Currie had left the band and Jett was handling most of the vocals, and they were just mailing it in waiting for the end.

    There’s no logical reason for Jett to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but she’s not alone in that.

    No Teenager has ever spent a cent on any media. It’s like air. It is delivered in the ether of the internet.

    So, no one will much notice Teen Vogue not getting printed on paper. Hell … less dead trees. &c.

    Jackie (((Fox))) being one of the FIVE bass players the band employed in 3 years. Their bassists were like Spinal Tap's drummers!

    She also claimed a couple years ago that she was drugged and raped by their manager, the late Kim Fowley on New Year's Eve in 1975.
