When I saw the below Instagram post, I was just in frickin’ shock.

Can this be real?

Is this photo fake?

After Googling current issues of these two magazines, I found them to be real.

I was just appalled.

Girls should “Wake Up Pretty,” and boys should explore their future.

Screw you, Girls’ Life magazine. This is what your cover should look like.

I am a 31-year-old graphic designer who works for an amazing nonprofit, The Friends of the Saint Paul Library. I grew up in a small town in North Dakota, moved to Orlando after college and lived there for five years, and now live in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I am always creating something. In my spare time I work on personal design projects, freelancing, am a volunteer Wish Granter for Make-A-Wish, and teach community education classes. I have designed for big names like the Walt Disney Company and Lucas Films and now use my creativity every day to support causes I believe in.
