Zero offense intended in my question. I never called your content or your writers "afflicted by horrific social disorders". I asked if the target of your satire is young adults afflicted by horrific social disorders. Much comedy arises from people with social disorders: Kramer in Seinfeld, South Park, Family Guy, The Young Ones, Fawlty Towers, etc. I perused your content and was genuinely curious about the precise target(s) of its satire. The first political one I opened suggested Boris Johnson is giving sexual signals with his hands and baffling body language (so i thought your target was the political establishment). But then there were items on preserving the vagina, watching porn, wanking, suffering through boring zoom chats with older relatives, and ordering vibrators. Hence I thought your target might be sexually frustrated young adults who spend so much time online, seeking validation, popularity and likes (it's a common problem), that they become cocooned in a safe space bubble that renders them afflicted by horrific social disorders (exacerbated by the coronavirus lockdowns). Content with headlines like "girls seeking male validation", "things to wank over in isolation", a guide to achieving TikTok fame and something about "What the F**k is Going On in TikTok" all suggested your target might be such young adults.
I understand, perhaps I was being oversensitive. And yes that is the target audience.

Don't go, Sophie, this forum needs new members. Think of this as a baptism of fire. Good luck with the mag!
Thank you, I appreciate this.

Hi Sophie, i'm genuinely sorry you don't feel you were made welcome enough. But please don't clear off straight away, The forum part of the site could certainly benefit from some younger posters, let alone younger female posters. But you should really think about staying to take advantage of things like the opportunities section and maybe if you ask Aaron nicely he might do a feature on your magazine - which wouldn't hurt.
In fact i checked the posts in this thread, and i would say it was 7 positive (or at least not negative) to 3 negative posters. So i would suggest ''everyone commenting on this thread clearly has a problem" might be unfair to the people who were trying to be fair
PS i sent you a PM this morning, did you see it?
Well anyway good luck with Magazine.
Yes I agree I perhaps got caught in the heat of the moment. Thank you for being kind.
