Knock it Back

I was so overexcited to rediscover KnockBack recently. KnockBack, by the way, is the magazine for 'women who aren't silly bitches on diets'. They are the anti-Cosmo. You are sold already, right? I read the first issue a few years ago but then kind of lost touch with them. They don't have a particularly regular print schedule so that is quite easy to do. The upside of the irregular printing is that they only put out an issue when they have something to say. No filler here. After reading a copy of the Well Dressed issue I immediately rushed to their shop and ordered the latest issue - the Hardcore issue. This actually came out in June so any real (hardcore) KB fans will be disgusted at how behind the times I am but everyone else should go and buy their copies immediately because it doesn't age. It isn't like trying to read a Grazia from June, quality content doesn't age. Highlights include a seventeen year old's response to porn, an avoiding pregnancy snakes and ladders game and Marie Berry's great article about the Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (donate here). This issue is more grown up than earlier issues but it is still snort-tea-out-of-your-nose hilarious. Buy it now.





Ahaha, the 'Are you a dick?' quiz is so funny. Buy it already.

  6. Yay! I love knockback. Weirdly it was my brother who introduced them to me. We are the proper children of a 70s feminist!
