Reading Details' "The Rise of the Hot Jewish Girl" should probably offend me as a woman and a Jew, but it's as a journalist that I'm most offended. Still, could Details be more misogynistic than Maxim? There's strong evidence.
At base a men's fashion magazine, Details is supposedly for a younger and even more status-conscious thirtysomething to GQ's bigger tent and Maxim's still-laddish sensibility (the latter is shrinking in reach, though its cultural contribution seems to live on). Details has lived many lives, but in editor-in-chief Dan Peres' most recent incarnation, the preference for a waif-like, unfratty male physique and an aging gay-or-not debate has been offset by proving "virility" in the crudest, oldest way: misogyny.
