Seriously, what the hell is this? I haven’t read the article, so I don’t know if it has any redeeming qualities, but I’m doubting that the content quality is enough to justify being offensive.
I can see the value in creating eye-catcher titles, but as a full-time student and worker, covers like this offer me no incentive to react in a positive way or even to buy the magazine.
That’s right, TIME. There’s no way I’m buying this issue. I’m going to make a trip to rite-aid or some shit and simply read the magazine without paying for it.
I encourage other millennials to do the same. Indeed, it could be considered ‘narcissistic’ to assume that TIME magazine would notice or even care if one disillusioned twenty-something didn’t buy a copy of their magazine, but they’re sure as hell going to take note when their sales start slowing. We shall slay them with the power of passive aggression!
