Aria, yes, the spring issue was thin, but I can assure you it was because it had to be put together extremely fast, giving the staff issues with advertising and such. Having just relaunched, it'll take a little time for Venus to get back with the usual advertisers and start putting out thicker issues. I can also assure you the writers are strong feminists, no matter what the Publisher may have said. She doesn't represent Venus Zine as a whole.
Also--the staff is young! You're seriously going to judge the music editor about liking Silverchair in 1995 when she was probably 11?
Venus is the same as it always was, with many of the same editors and contributors returning. Sarah is the publisher, not the editor in chief. Believe it or not, what she may have said has very little effect on the content. It's ridiculous to judge the "new" Venus based on this article when not only have most of you never seen the new issue, you don't seem to understand that the many longtime writers are still passionate about continuing on as always.
Also: "They basically jump on what ever BUST is doing, and then attempt to be relevant."
Are you serious?! BUST publishes every other month while Venus is a quarterly. They begin working on issues months before the release, meaning months before the new BUST is out. You clearly don't understand how magazines work.
