* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Try to count how many readers have wrote in saying "I don't believe that my PE teacher said that men are stronger than women! Girls are JUST AS STRONG!" Or in other cases, "Girls are exactly the same as boys except for one more X chromosome!" Ignoring, of course, that boys generally have a naturally higher muscle density than girls; it's not sexist, it's been scientifically proven as fact. Of course, we're dealing with an average here, which of course doesn't mean that any given man is stronger than any given woman, but the point remains the same.

* CompletelyMissingThePoint: "Howling At The Moon" was meant to be a section about empowering moments of ''equality;'' however, many girls will write in about how they did some thing or another ''better'' than the boys, and thus have scored one for the female gender, not for equality as a whole.

* RealWomenNeverWearDresses: Some readers cannot grasp the fact that boys and girls are in fact different, and that embracing one's femininity is not necessarily a bad thing. Which is CompletelyMissingThePoint of the magazine, as it is supposed to be about [[BeYourself being yourself.]]
