We've said it before and we'll say it again: Men's magazines are so much better than women's magazines. For starters, they don't condescend, have an evolved sense of humor and they're sorta naughty (but not in a trying-too-hard Cosmo sort of way). And they actually seem much more devoted to writing interesting — albeit occasionally obnoxious — pieces on women than any of their ladymag sisters. Take this month's GQ. The Conde Nast men's magazine devotes an entire nine pages to the plight of the Cincinnati Ben-Gals, the pro cheerleading squad for the City of Chili's NFL team. Special care is given to presenting the Ben-Gals as a group of complicated women with a complicated job ("complicated" meaning, cheap: A pro cheerleader makes $75 a week, and, according to GQ, it costs a Ben-Gal approximately $1,000 a month to just achieve and maintain her "total package". Talk about labors of love).
