I bought this crappy women's magazine a couple of weeks ago for a flight - for some reason, crappy women's magazines are about all I can focus on while in the air, that and completely dumb movies - and was killing myself when I noticed what one of Abu Dhabi's censors had blacked out. I'd heard about these black markings ever since arriving, just never saw it for myself. Then, there it was, in British Cosmopolitan, part of an article called... well, you can see what it's called.
The thing is, shouldn't pretty much all of British Cosmo, and Glamour, and just about every other women's magazine that fall all over themselves to write about things of an, ahem, extremely personal nature, be subject to the black marker too? I am not, repeat not, asking for this to happen. I simply wouldn't mind if things made a bit more sense sometimes.
