Men's Health mag apologizes for 'misogynistic' article and tweet
Some women legitimately don't like sports, but shockingly, there are many others who do. Now that we're all on the same page, here's an entire publication that's having trouble with that concept.
On Monday, Men's Health magazine tweeted: "She sees the game differently than you. Here's how, and what to do about it." And if you continue down the yellow brick road, it leads you to a Men's Health story entitled, "The Secret to Talking Sports With Any Woman." That's right, any woman.
The piece that explains the art of speaking to women about sports features insights such as, "Most women don't care about stats" and says women need story lines to get into sports.
According to the Los Angeles Times, over the course of two hours after the tweet was published, Men's Health received more than 4,800 mentions, mostly from outraged readers.
From here this story takes a familiar turn: Men's Health took down the article Monday and published an apology on Twitter:
"Apologies for our 'talk sports with her' story. It missed the mark and the negative feedback is justified. We've deleted it. It wasn't meant to suggest that women are in any way inferior to men, in sports, or anything else. But ... we're sorry that it did."
