It's not the magazine, it's other women! Particularly, young women.

The "Bitch" Evolved: Why Girls Are So Cruel to Each Other.

Evolutionarily, historically and cross-culturally, they point out, girls in the fifteen- to nineteen-year-old range would be most actively competing for mates. Thus, anything that would sabotage another females’ image as a desirable reproductive partner, such as commenting on her promiscuity, physical appearance or some other aberrant or quirky traits, tends to be the stuff of virile gossip. Also, the degree of bitchiness should then demonstrate a sort of bell-shaped curve over the female life course.

I stopped reading Scientific American a decade ago when they went all lefty.

Uhm, everything that is not directed towards making women feel good about themselves is oppressive and vile.

Yup...

You make a woman feel bad about her body by saying good morning to her. So a thoughtful man will always complement her looks/dress in a natural and sincere way in the first few moments from seeing her come into the room.
