Never, have I seen a foreword, which is more self-protective, especially that of a magazine. Talking Textures has been one of my favorite student magazines since a few years. Not because itâ€™s all so colorful, but because it was open and just so true. Exactly what student life is all about. Untroubled, lovely, cheery and cheesy, just about everything. Never, would I have thought, that I would come across a student mag, where I would find myself being forced to accept the fact that something as unnecessary as sex is â€¦ what? A part of a studentâ€™s life? Where a few have stared, wolf-whistled, snorted and possibly haw–ed over it, my friends and myself raised our eyebrows over the attempt to make common, this tabooed topic. I fail to understand the possible need of asking us believe that swear words, as in, real swear words should be included in a studentsâ€™ magazine, because thatâ€™s what we students do. Swear at each other, and ask each other to bed? Ha!
I must admit, this naÃ¯ve shot has gone missed, and probably damaged the reputation TISF (or for that matter, the Publications committee) had.
Nice try dude, but, get a life!
