More Cosmo Nonsense

OK, so by now you know I'm neither a subscriber to, nor a fan of, Cosmo. But in case you are either (both?!) I'd like to point out just how silly the magazine is with a page from the June 2009 issue.

On page 48, "Sexier When They're Single?" displays the results of "100 people on the street" who responded to pics of female celebrities, with & without male mates, with their vote for when said celebrities were sexier -- when single or in a relationship.

I'm not entirely sure of what to make of this nonsense... Is it some sort of Maxim-esque "look who is single!" alert? Or is it to, once again, reduce women to their looks? Maybe it's to point out their "failed relationship status?

What do you think it is?

Your input is much appreciated.
