Tory Politician Says Men's Mags Disrespectful to Women, Lead to Destruction of Families

British Conservative party politician Michael Gove today said that men's magazines encourage young people to think of women as sex objects and lead to the destruction of the family. He contrasted the tone of these magazines with those aimed at women readers, which he said were more mature. Said Mr. Gove, "We should ask those who make profits out of revelling in, or encouraging, selfish irresponsibility among young men what they think they're doing." Read more here in a Guardian story. He's gotten quite a response. See here, here, and here.
