The Real Story Of "Tokyo Rose"

By F Yeah History  In Living  On Jan 22, 2018

The myth of the "Tokyo Rose" can first be traced back to American soldiers stationed in Japan during WW2. Too far from home to be able to tune into US radio, they were at the mercy of Japanese entertainment. The Japanese quickly cottoned onto this and allowed American GIs to listen to their favourite songs…at a price. The music was introduced by the voice of a mysterious woman — she spoke English but also predicted America's fall and the imment deaths of the listening GIs. Not exactly ideal dinner guest material. This… Read more
The Golden Globes this year were essentially a big, fancy feminist uprising with a few pointless awards sprinkled in.

Smith joins Callie and Emily to debate every last detail of this #TimesUp launch party masquerading as an awards show.

On January 9, All the Money in the World made headlines when USA Today reported Michelle Williams was paid under $1,000 during the film reshoot while her co-star Mark Wahlberg made — well — all the money in the world (or $1.5 million). Now, the Hollywood Reporter is sharing that Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross is apparently earning “significantly less” than her onscreen husband Anthony Anderson. The award-winning show is currently undergoing negotiations for its fifth season. An unnamed source told the Hollywood… Read more
On Wednesday, Samantha Bee unleashed a hilarious and poignant bit of full-frontal-feminist standup on her show, saying, “so now that we’re finally listening to women, some people are asking an important question: should we stop listening to women?” Her question references the backlash the #MeToo movement is receiving in response to the Shitty Media Men List and the accusation against Aziz Ansari. A little context: In October, a woman, who has since revealed herself to be Moira Donegan, anonymously compiled a… Read more

PRIMA's "Diva" Is A Fun, Feminist Anthem: BUST Premiere

By Rachel Angel  In Music  On Jan 19, 2018

What happens when gaudy excess and punk rock recklessness merge? You get PRIMA's newest video, “Diva.” PRIMA is a Brooklyn post-punk powerhouse headed by charismatic frontwoman Rose Blanshei. The music is lightning-charged, with inventive guitar hooks, dark fuzzy riffs, and foreboding breaks buzzing with overdrive and amp noise, all driven by the sheer energy of Blanshei’s declarative vocals. Blanshei sings, “Get in control like a diva / I’m in control / I’m in control.” According to Blanshei, the song itself resembles… Read more
In October 2017, Vogue magazine ran a headline on its website that read, “How That ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ Embroidery Became the Internet’s Response to Harvey Weinstein,” referring to an embroidery work created by Shannon Downey of Badass Cross Stitch.

In The Early 1900s, Ladies Stabbed Harassers With Hatpins

By BUST Magazine  In Style  On Jan 19, 2018

Some men may think that it’s acceptable to follow the president’s example and grab women without consent. But even at the turn of the 19th century, women refused to tolerate such behavior: a fashionable lady could pull a long, sharp steel pin out of her hat and give her harasser a good jab.When the hatpin was introduced in the mid-1800s, it liberated women from cumbersome bonnet strings. Urban industrialization, public transit, and department stores presented women new avenues for freedom. And in the early 1900s,… Read more

River dancing, Bono’s sunglasses, Guinness beer, potatoes. These are just a handful of things that Ireland has gifted to North America over the years. (I’m kidding, of course — like many things that white nations claim as theirs, potatoes actually hail from Peru). We can also thank Ireland for the Dolores O’Riodan, the lead singer of the iconic '90s rock band The Cranberries, who was found dead on Monday in her hotel room in London, according to Rolling Stone. She was 46. The Cranberries made waves when they first swam… Read more
Larry Nassar, accused serial sexual assaulter and former team doctor for the U.S gymnastics team, pleaded guilty to 10 sexual assault charges last November.

Over 140 girls and women have accused Nassar of sexual assault, and 105 of them have signed up to appear in the courtroom or have statements read on their… Read more
Today on CBS This Morning, Dylan Farrow spoke out about her sexual assault by her father Woody Allen for the first time on television. “He’s lying,” she said, “and he’s been lying for so long.” CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King asked Farrow about the assault, the aftermath, and the Time’s Up movement to empower and support survivors of sexual abuse. Though Allen has denied all Farrow's accusations, Farrow has stuck by her story since she was child, and first wrote about her abuse publicly in a 2014 piece in the New… Read more

A Sex Worker Takes On "Moulin Rouge"

By LIly Vye  In Movies  On Jan 18, 2018

When I was in middle school, I prayed every night that I would wake up the next morning as Nicole Kidman as Satine in Moulin Rouge — and I’ve never even believed in God. At the time, my love of Moulin Rouge was the only thing that sustained me, and I watched it obsessively (I’ve seen it about 100 times) to escape my life. I was mercilessly bullied, afraid to go to school each day, and struggling with with suicidal ideation. If I could just be Satine, I thought, everything would be better. I ended up kind of getting my… Read more

Imagine capturing a feeling on film, transforming the unseen vibrations that exist between two people in an intimate and vulnerable space into a photograph. Artist Dani Lessnau, 31, does just this, photographing her lovers using a pinhole camera placed inside her vagina.

Last summer, Brooklyn-based rapper Miss Eaves gave us the gift of Feminasty, an album full of wit, humor, and fresh feminist mantras with songs like “Fuccboi Salute” and “Hump Day.” We fell in love with her after she dropped the body-positive summer anthem “Thunder Thighs,” and now, Miss Eaves is back with “Paper Mache (Single AF),” all about the joys of — you guessed it — being single. “So what?

The “Glasses Gotta Go” Trope Needs to Go

By Gabriella Giambanco  In Movies  On Jan 17, 2018

Tropes have been around as long as media has existed. When watching TV or film, we can identify images and themes that are used over and over again. But are tropes benefiting society, or projecting unrealistic ideologies for societal consumption? Some tropes can be argued to be harmless, like the classic “Running Through an Airport” trope, but others create or reinforce stereotypes in society. Just take a closer look at one trope: The “Glasses Gotta Go” trope. The “Glasses Gotta Go” trope is when a girl or guy (but… Read more

Victorian Views On Marrying A Scoundrel

By Mimi Matthews  In Sex  On Jan 17, 2018

If you’ve ever read a historical romance novel, you’ll likely be familiar with the oft-quoted belief that “reformed rakes make the best husbands.” This matrimonial maxim did not, however, originate in the world of Regency and Victorian fiction. In fact, when it came to marriage, many a nineteenth century lady firmly believed that a reformed rake was superior to other men. Not only was a rake more sexually experienced and (presumably) a better lover, but—after having sown his wild oats—a rake was believed to be more… Read more

Last week, The Washington Post reported that, during a discussion about an immigration deal, Donald Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador and some African nations as “shithole countries.” The comment was horrifying, but not surprising, considering Trump's previous statements on immigration.

On Aziz Ansari And "Bad Sex"

By Katie Anthony  In Feminism  On Jan 16, 2018

Yesterday, I read a piece in Babe. You know the one. The piece by Katie Way tells the story of a young woman, whom we know as Grace, who met Aziz Ansari, went on a date with him, and then engaged in sexual contact with him that was deeply uncomfortable and upsetting.The allegations against Ansari open up the next, harder, messier chapter in the #MeToo movement, one in which the vast majority of us are no longer able to simply say, "If you're not with us, you're against us." The line in the sand is hard to see here.… Read more

By Megan Kirby  In Music  On Jan 12, 2018

On January 13, 2016, US Weekly reported One Direction had broken up. The band’s reps claimed hiatus, but the truth stands: In two years, each of our sweet boys has released solo material, and there has been no whisper of a reunion.

In our latest Fashion Nation column, Kailey Flyte of the blog Mermaidens tells us all about her pink personal style. How did you get into fashion?
