FHM and Zoo Magazines to 'Suspend' Publication

Following-up from April, "Death of the Lads Mags?"

The feminist campaign to destroy men's magazines in Britain is virtually complete.

At the Telegraph UK, "The end of the lads' mag? FHM and Zoo magazines suspended":

FHM and Zoo magazines are to suspend publication, their publisher has announced.

Bauer Media today set in motion the process to call time on the two titles, effectively ending the presence of so-called 'lads' mags' on newsagent shelves.

"Unfortunately it’s true and it has been announced today the intention to suspend publication of FHM,"  read a statement posted on the FHM website.

"It’s been an absolute joy producing the magazine over the years. Thank you for all your support, we will keep you updated with developments over the coming weeks.

A similar statement published on Zoo's site said: "It is with regret we have to inform you of the intention to suspend publication of ZOO.

"We've loved every minute of the near 12 years and 600-plus issues we've shared with you and would like to thank each and every one of you who've been there with us along the way."
Still more.

Look, even Playboy's ditching the centerfold. It's hard out there for hot red-blooded males.
