BIG NEWS - CHILD SLAVES


In recent days, we have heard frequent news reports of child slaves allegedly trapped on a boat off the coast of Africa. The reports do not mention the sex of the child slaves. But as the following article now reveals, most of these slaves are boys. Why does the media neglect to report the gender of male victims? MORE

SPECIAL OFFER


For each copy of Chicken Soup for the Prisoner's Soul you purchase from us at the regular price, we will send a copy to two prison libraries. (Our goal is to get at least one copy in every prison in the U.S., which total over 8,000 facilities.) MORE

MEN, IT'S TIME TO ACT


It's happening. Chicken Soup for the Soul® has an edition about Father's due out in May, 2001. And, they are looking for stories about Men for a new addition. MORE

WATCH OUT WHEN BUYING THE APRIL GEAR


We got caught again. Gear is a pretty good men's magazine. However, their marketing tactics suck. Once again the April, 01 issue has two very different covers. So, if you buy the issue early in the month and return later to see a different cover, you, like us, might spend another $3.50 ($5.50 in Canada) for the same thing. Bob Guccione, Jr. is Editor-in-Chief, Gear, 450 W 15th St, New York, NY 10011 212.771.7000, editorial fax to 212.627.3168 or edit@gearmagazine.com We did hear back from Bob. MORE

HOMEGIRLS


Once considered just trophies or trouble-makers, female gang members have now become bangers in their own right. "I see my little eight-year-old sister repeatin' the same things I used to do. She don't gangbang yet, but she throwin' up signs and stuff, just like I used to do." Three women tell their story in the April 12 Rolling Stone.

AVOIDING THE JACK


Ever get jacked? The crime rate is down in the big cities, but anyone who lives in one knows there are people who still make their living by jacking. As you read this, there are busloads of tourists coming into town and posses of con men (and women), grifters, and general thugs waiting to prey on them. Learn how to avoid catching a random beatdown. 5/01.

TITLE IX'S PYRRHIC VICTORY


The intent of Title IX was to provide opportunity for girls and women, but today it is often applied in ways that do nothing but kill athletic opportunities for boys and men. When the announcements was made about eliminating baseball at Providence College, said one female swimming, "the women athletes were as mad about it as anyone else." 4/01

HEALTH-INSURANCE PITFALLS


Some health-insurance pitfalls could bankrupt you, if you let them. Read the fine print. Two choices: (1) Spend an hour scouring that little policy booklet you got from human resources, or (2) for about $50, hire an agent from the nonprofit Alliance of Claims Assistance Professionals to peruse your policy for the common pitfalls. 4/01.

THE LYING GAME - IS SHE TELLING THE TRUTH?


Come on, you know you sometimes wonder if she's telling you the truth. Women are usually quick to say men lie, but did she really spend the night at her girlfriend's like she told you? It's enough to give you gray hairs...if you don't already have them. The 4/01 issue tells all.

IMMACULATE CONTRACEPTION


Deep inside an unmarked facility in the churchgoing heartland of Colonial Heights, VA, 10,000 gallons of Malaysian latex and 6,000 stainless-steel phalluses churn out the Class 2 medical device that keeps the business of love booming. A rare look inside the secret world of Trojan condoms, the Pentagon of prophylactics. 4/01

ANATOMY CLASS


Dr. Nicholas A. Romas sheds some light on all the beauty and mystery surrounding your most prized possessions. The family jewels. 4/01

COMMIT OR QUIT!


Are you sure you want her to be the last women you ever have sex with? If not, Pull out a coin, pick heads or tails, and give it a flip. Did you win the toss? You'd better hope so, because studies indicate those are pretty much your odds of having a successful marriage. Read on, grasshopper, in the 4/01 issue.

SHARING THE PARENTING


American Girl (2-3/01) has a publication called Daughters which is directed to parents of girls ages 10-16. WHile most of the stories and information are geared to mothers, there is an occasional piece for fathers. This issue has a nice story about Paul and Sharing the Parenting.

A FIRST: DON'T LET IT DIE


There are more boys born than girls. Under 5, there are almost 500,000 more boys. This number keeps decreasing and at 30, there are fewer men than women. The Federal Government has established 5 commissions on Women's Health and, while a Men's Health commission has been proposed before, it never survived, and with it, many men didn't survive who might have been helped by its passage. On Valentine's Day, 52 members of the House of Representatives started the ball rolling again. It's up to you, now. MORE

BAD ADS


Sickening New Wave of TV Commercials Show Men Betraying Buddies for Nuggets, Booze and Women:

WHAT IF CIGARETTE ADS TOLD THE TRUTH?

It takes a great imagination to create cigarette advertising. Philip Morris are experts at it. Like using their charity work to get their cigarette image back on television and pretending cigarettes have nothing to do with over 1,200 deaths a day. MORE This mimic of Marlboro ads appeared in the 2/01 issue of Stance magazine for young men. There's a body bag over the trailing horse and the Surgeon General's box noting "Yee Haw! You too can be an independent. rugged, macho-looking dead guy."  16 mg of cancer-causin' tar, 200 mg of false self-confidence, 2500 mg of "Giddy-up, nobody gonna tell me what to do!"  www.thetruth.com/main.cfm?flash=no
