Condé Nast’s thinly veiled adolescent propaganda machine, Teen Vogue, has met its (partial) end. In a tragedy mourned primarily by ultra-liberal adults who (allegedly) aren’t even among the target audience, the Condé Nast publishing behemoth, as a budget-trimming measure, will close the print version of Teen Vogue. Its more readily monetized digital version, however, will remain, according to WWD.

The cards were on the table last year when the now-17-year-old magazine cut its circulation from 10 issues a year to four. For many parents, the progression of Teen Vogue’s prolonged demise is a welcome relief. The racy content has been the subject of controversy for years.

Still, news of the magazine’s withering influence did queue the digital gnashing of teeth and wearing of sackcloth for some. Not by teens, of course. There are plenty of physical magazines that cater to this demographic, and losing a quarterly rag won’t impact them much. Teen Vogue is just one fish in a very large sea.

No, the mourners are adults. Some adults are decrying the loss of an arguably effective tool for generating freshly minted liberal voters and knee-jerk social justice warriors.

You didn’t think Teen Vogue was about dating, makeup, and celebrity gossip, did you? Oh, that’s all there for the impressionable reader, of course — and often in disturbingly and distinctly adult versions. Last summer’s sodomy tutorial for youngsters that appeared in its pages is just one example, though there are many others that could compete for the title of “most inappropriate.”

In addition to its coverage of common teenage topics, Teen Vogue unapologetically pushed leftist political content — to teenagers. In fact, the online version devotes an entire section to it. If you think you might find content there representing a diversity of political opinion, you will be sorely disappointed.

Teen Vogue saves diversity for other sections of the magazine. Its news and politics are unapologetically hard left. The latest story in this section is a good example, though it does fall on the subtler side of their typically more in-your-face style. A piece published today is titled “How To Be An Activist When You’re Unable to Attend Protests.” Sounds benign, right? “Activism,” obviously, can be embraced by folks of any political stripe and any age. And instructing kids to get involved in issues they care about is laudable.

But the devil is in the details. And with Teen Vogue, the details are presented in a way young kids can’t miss, whether it’s sex or politics. Repeated references to fighting for social justice — code for liberal ideals — and highlighting the Women’s March on Washington as an exemplar are not subtle. Nor are other recent articles like these: “Don’t Just Sit There: Now Is the Time to Resist Donald Trump’s America,” or “The Far-Right Is Gaining Power in These 5 Countries: Some Xenophobic Groups Are Gaining Serious Power” — or “Are Any Of Us Still Proud to Be American? This Week, Thigh-High Politics Questions Blind Patriotism.”

The graphic accompanying the activist piece is a mass of discarded protest signs piled on a street corner. Wording on those signs include “Love Trumps Hate,” “Though Shalt Not Grab Pu**y — God,” and “Nasty Woman.” These are not the signs of anti-abortion or pro-border control activists. These are obviously the signs of adults who oppose conservatism in general and President Donald Trump in particular.

And in case you missed the huge, attention-grabbing graphic at the top of the article, taking note of the organization that’s pushing the content might help. This particular piece is provided by Amnesty International. Teen Vogue conveniently links its young readers to Amnesty International’s Tumblr page — where they can read all about the organization’s anti-life, anti-Second Amendment, and anti-Israel efforts.

Will our nation’s teen population suffer irreparable damage when they are no longer able to physically thumb through the pages of Teen Vogue’s sex-saturated, leftist tripe?

No. They will be just fine, thank you. Better, actually.

And parents everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. Perhaps a few middle-grade children might be spared its graphic sex manuals and relentless depiction of scantily clad models.
