‘How Not Be Rape’: Virale tweet dílt ‘Triggers’ 90s Magazine Cover
This week, it became a viral tweet after a woman shared what she called the “running magazine cover of the ’90s.” He says he identifies rape cultures and food that have existed in the past, one of which is still possible.
The cover in question was from January 5, 1993, the issue of Woman’s World magazine with a series of controversial – and “running” story trailers.
“How not to be raped,” reads the headline under the magazine.
“I’m raising a man, Nikki now says, ‘I’m pregnant,’ says another.
On the envelope is next to the inscription “Lose weight like a star!” picture A woman who has a hard time zipping up her pants!
“I found it: the most inspiring magazine cover of the 90’s. It has everything: a normalizing diet, the strange optics of transgressions, ‘something that won’t be raped,’ “says a text accompanying a tweet by writer Karina Longworth.
“Rap culture” as well as “food culture” are two ideas that exist in American society and can be watched in the media and pop culture through television and film, music and magazines.
The Women’s and Gender Study Center at Marshall University describes the culture of rape as “an environment where rape is widespread and where sexual violence against women is normalized and supported by the media and popular culture.”
“The culture of rape is maintained through the use of misogynistic language, the objectification of women’s bodies and the glamoration of sexual violence, so that a society is created that ignores women’s rights and safety.”

According to VeryWellFit, food culture is “a widespread belief that appearance and body shape are more important than physical, mental and general well-being”.
In 2021, Good Housekeeping will report on examples of food culture in everyday life. From the Barbie “thigh gap” and the 18-inch waist to Kim Kardashian, who explains how to “squeeze” the shape under the dress so that cellulite doesn’t get out. In addition, diet is a widespread phenomenon for many American adults who, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, found that in 2013-2016, nearly half of American adults tried to lose weight. the last 12 months.
Longworth told Newsweek in an email that he found the magazine cover when he searched for his podcast, “You have to remember that.” She was looking for stories from the magazines Melanie Griffith mentioned in the late 80’s and early 90’s, and this issue of Women’s World was published in an eBay search.
Longworth said the most bizarre thing about this cover is the rape title line.
“The only consequence is that there is something rape victims have been doing for centuries to prevent this if they have access to this supermarket magazine – which is also an implication that rape is the victim’s fault,” he told Longworth.
People gather in the commentary section of the viral tweet to discuss the nature of the copy on the envelope with great difficulty in understanding the thought process behind such headlines. Many agreed with Longworth’s contempt for a particular frontline.
“You have to leave a small line under ‘no’, ‘if someone is confused about what the advice is for,'” one commentator wrote.
“‘How not to be raped’ will be one of the most tumultuous headlines ever — and so it can be bold on the cover of a magazine with rights and humiliation,” one commentator added.
One commenter shared that he thinks many of these topics are still being addressed by readers today.
“Really amazing is that you can walk into one of the 1,000 supermarkets and find the same coverage in today’s women’s world. Except that diet tips are already keto, “wrote the commentator.
Longworth believes that we now live in a culture that is “quite like an addiction to food, but calls it an ‘advantage.’
“I can’t imagine seeing a headline about rape at the moment, and some of the reactions I’ve seen show that people think it’s a fake cover-up because of this sentence,” Longworth told Newsweek. “But once you get down to it, you’ll draw attention to how culture has treated women in the ’80s and’ 90s.”
According to Magazines.com, one of the most popular features of Women’s World magazine is weight loss stories – usually on the cover.
