Blood and Guts in High School: How Seventeen Made 'Traumarama' Blood and Guts in High School: How Seventeen Made 'Traumarama'

As a teen, you could have read the wholesome Seventeen magazine for a lot of reasons. Maybe it was the tasteful fashion spreads pulled from mall outlets that were actual affordable. Or perhaps you memorized the stories from clean-cut boys on what they look for in a dream date. But for the more deranged among us, there…

Seventeen Magazine Now Selling Clothes for Teens Seventeen Magazine Now Selling Clothes for Teens

Soon you will be able to go to your nearest Sears and purchase clothes inspired by Seventeen magazine. Is it a women's magazine or is a clothing line? That's a stupid question; it's a brand.

Seventeen Mag Slammed For Promoting Online Dating To Minors Seventeen Mag Slammed For Promoting Online Dating To Minors

After a (college-age) dating blogger for Seventeen posted a column about the pros and cons of online dating, the magazine's website has come under fire for promoting online hookups to girls who are ostensibly too young to join most of the major dating sites out there — Match.com's 18-and-up requirement goes…

This Middle Aged Man Would Like Girls to Stop Worrying Their Pretty Little Heads About Photo Retouching This Middle Aged Man Would Like Girls to Stop Worrying Their Pretty Little Heads About Photo Retouching

In response to recent protests over Seventeen magazine's photo retouching of teenage girls (and the publication's lukewarm capitulation), the Daily Beast ran an editorial by one Jim Warren, former Chicago Tribune managing editor, MSNBC political analyst, and inescapably middle-aged white dude. Warren's point? Well,…

Seventeen Magazine's New Photoshop Policy Is the Same As The Old Photoshop Policy Seventeen Magazine's New Photoshop Policy Is the Same As The Old Photoshop Policy

Seventeen has at last, in an oblique kind of way, responded to the controversy sparked in April when a 14-year-old from Maine started an online petition calling out the magazine's over-use of Photoshop. That petition, started by a middle school student named Julia Bluhm, quickly went viral and was signed by over…

Seventeen Says Thanks But No Thanks To Teen's Photoshop Petition Seventeen Says Thanks But No Thanks To Teen's Photoshop Petition

Seventeen editor Ann Shoket met yesterday with Julia Bluhm, the 14-year-old reader who started an online petition to ask the magazine to curb its use of Photoshop. Although the magazine accepted the petition and its nearly 25,000 signatures when Bluhm went to deliver it in person yesterday, it appears Seventeen has no…

Seventeen Informs Girls That Boys Are Probably Lying To Them Seventeen Informs Girls That Boys Are Probably Lying To Them

The Awl has been reading the August issue of Seventeen for some reason and spotted this gem: A column called "LIES He Tells You Straight To Your Face." Maybe it's best that girls learn they can't trust anything guys say, from basic facts about their lives to their love of kittens. It paves the way for Cosmo to scare…

Hideous Dresses & Possible Deflowering: Seventeen Goes To The Prom Hideous Dresses & Possible Deflowering: Seventeen Goes To The Prom

Was your prom dress ugly and embarrassing? Judging from Seventeen Prom, girls today have it even worse. Maybe teens don't mind wearing grotesque gowns anyhow — judging from the advertising, prom is really about what happens when the dress comes off.

“It's Fun To Be Seventeen",  Unless, Of Course, You're Seventeen “It's Fun To Be Seventeen", Unless, Of Course, You're Seventeen

It's been a while since I've read Seventeen, but I assumed not much would have changed. Through the ages, teen girls have always needed the magazine to rehash the same stories about which jeans look best on "curvy" figures and assuage their fears about vaginal odor. But this wise "older sister" has turned abusive of…

You Wanna Be On Top You Wanna Be On Top

Check it out: It's ANTM Cycle 10 winner Whitney Thompson's photos (taken by noted fashion photographer Nigel Barker) and interview from the forthcoming July issue of Seventeen. It's kinda great that the "full figure" girl won the cycle that featured a bikini shoot, so they weren't able to hide her body behind ponchos…

Anatomy Of A Celebrity Maturation: Avril Lavigne Grows Up, Buys More, Sounds The Same Anatomy Of A Celebrity Maturation: Avril Lavigne Grows Up, Buys More, Sounds The Same

If there is one thing we are more soooooo sick of than Avril Lavigne giving interviews about how she is soooooo sick of everyone talking about how she is this, like, tomboy in Chuck Taylors and suspenders because she is suuuuuch a feminine grown-up now (and p.s. Mark Jacobs and Proenza whatever and every other cool…
