If you’re peeved about negative portrayals of girls in magazines, say so! Almost every magazine includes dozens of subscription cards with pre-paid postage; rip out the cards and write out your complaints. Be sure to say that you will not subscribe as long as the magazine continues to degrade girls. Pop that card in the mail (remember, postage is pre-paid so you don’t have to put a stamp on it) and keep the promise of not subscribing to magazines that don’t pay attention to you!
