[citation][nom]njt[/nom]like.... wow. reinforcing stereotypes much?are you going to put devin in some skimpy swimsuit for the female audience as well or do you feel safer going with the chauvinistic pigdom?[/citation]
Chauvinistic pigdom is fun and proven to work, now get back in the kitchen!!!

Haha cute. And stop getting all up in arms, using young attractive models to showcase and sell products is done in pretty much every country of the world. Idealism gives way to practicality. Not sexism or some twisted chauvinistic mentality, just cold practical salesmanship. If the toms-guide readers were majority female then they'd have young attractive men showcasing your products.

[citation][nom]Tomsguiderachel[/nom]Well, njt, there HAS been some discussion around the office about this, but ultimately it came down to budget. This is certainly not an egalitarian gift guide. But rest assured, Jane and I are pretty much up in arms about it, though.Rachel RosmarinManaging Editor, Tom's Guide[/citation]
I think Toms should save money on the hired models and you and Jane give it up yourselves, let's see a 2012 Toms Calendar as well with the pair of you in January & February too.
