4 New Graphic Memoir By Women You Need To Read Right Now

By BUST Magazine  In Books  On Mar 23, 2017

Graphic novels can be a lot more complex than Archie. And in the vein of Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and Fun Home by Alison Bechdel, these four new graphic memoirs and graphic novels by women get deep. They tackle topics including Amy Kurzweil's grandmother's Holocaust survival story in Flying Couch; to what it was like for Cristy C. Road to grow up, as the subtitle says, "queer, Cuban, and punk in Miami" in Indestructible; to sexual violence in the '70s in Una's Becoming Unbecoming. Last but certainly not least, Dame… Read more
GQ has been plugging their new cover star, “the greatest tennis player of all time,” on Twitter this week. But a number of tennis fans are not having it. Serena Williams has won more Grand Slam singles titles than any other player (23, to Federer’s 18) but as experts point out, there is no one concrete way to determine the greatest tennis player of all time, especially across both men's and women's tennis. Should it be based on singles titles? Prize money? Time spent at No. 1? Fox Sports' Chris Chase had this to say… Read more

The Pretenders Are Killing It On Tour

By Michael Levine  In Music  On Mar 22, 2017

Chrissie Hynde is back on the chain gang, so to speak. Well, back on the road, to be exact. She and her band the Pretenders are touring in support of their cracklin’ new album Alone (reviewed in BUST's December/January 2017 issue, here). If you haven’t caught the Pretenders live yet, there are still upcoming dates for shows, including some featuring everyone's favorite gothic white witch, the legendary Stevie Nicks, before the Pretenders head off to Europe. If you've never seen the great Pretender herself (and Co.)… Read more

Alice Neel's Paintings Show The Diversity Of New York

By Erika W. Smith  In Arts  On Mar 22, 2017

If you haven't studied art, you may not have heard of Alice Neel. Now's your time to catch up. Born in 1900, Neel moved to New York with her husband, Cuban painter Carlos Enriquez, in the late 1920s and lived there for most of the rest of her life, until her death at age 84. Neel was known for her portraits of family, friends, writers, poets, artists, and everyday people, and her art often engaged with social and political issues. Now, a new exhibit and book bring together her a selection of her work as a celebration… Read more

Jenny Slate Has The Best Advice About Recovering From A Breakup

By Miriam Mosher  In Living  On Mar 22, 2017

Jenny Slate is a force to be reckoned with. With two new films, a new home and a new life chapter as a single woman, she is truly living in the eye of the hurricane. Never one to shy away from emotional honesty, Slate talked to New York Magazine about being newly single and what that means after years of being part of a duo, most recently a highly publicized relationship with Captain America (Chris Evans). “The way I feel now is I’ve stepped out of the woods and I’m a forest animal and I’m standing on the lawn,” she… Read more

What is your usual impression of a pregnant woman on film? Glowing, happy; maybe dealing with a complicated paternity situation, a la Bridget Jones' Baby or Knocked Up? How about... murdering people? That's exactly what you'll get in Prevenge, a new British horror-comedy about a woman being induced to lure and kill unsuspecting victims by her unborn child. BUST spoke to Prevenge star, writer and director Alice Lowe about her new film, and the portrayal of pregnancy on film. You wrote and directed and acted in this film… Read more
When it comes to teenagers and their attitude toward cunnilingus, there’s a substantial divide between real-life and fiction. This is real life:“He doesn’t go down on me...He doesn’t want to. And I’ve never asked.”This is fiction:“‘When I lick you,’ he said, ‘I want you splayed out on a table like my own personal feast.’”Real teenage girls voiced their experiences with sex in Peggy Orenstein’s 2015 New York Times bestseller, Girls & Sex — and according to the book, their voices weren’t being heard anywhere else. These… Read more
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1981 musical Cats was not the first production to feature a cast of dancers dressed in cat costumes. Nearly one hundred years earlier, a ballet called Katrina made its debut at the Empire Theatre in London. Arranged by choreographer Kattie Lanner and set to music by composer Leopold Wenzel, it featured two intertwined stories. The first concerned the love affairs of a young student. The second — and far more interesting — took place in the Kingdom of Cats. Katrina starred Miss Ada Vincent as… Read more
Boss Hog’s fierce frontwoman shares her Trump-era must-haves In 1989, Boss Hog took the stage of CBGB’s with their sexy-dirty brand of bluesy punk, leaving a sweaty, immutable mark on the New York underground that has had fans clamoring for more ever since. The band, founded by husband-and-wife duo Cristina Martinez and Jon Spencer, is releasing Brood X in March, just when the world needs driving, scuzzy anthems for sweating it out.

My Rape Is Not A Cautionary Tale

By Dena Landon  In Feminism  On Mar 21, 2017

Viewing this past election year through the lens of a survivor of sexual assault was extremely difficult. With the release of the now-infamous video where Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women our bodies, our stories, and our right to consent were thrust front and center. Many chose to tweet about their assaults with the hashtag #NotOkay. Others of us, already massively triggered by his attitudes and words about women, chose to stay silent. As a survivor, I think that both are valid reactions to a man who talks… Read more

On Navigating Privilege And Marginalization

By Jacy Topps  In Living  On Mar 21, 2017

As a black woman married to a white woman, privilege is a subject that comes up often in my household. Usually, white privilege is what we’re discussing and in that context, I'm the person who's marginalized. What we rarely discuss are the ways in which I'm privileged. Yes, even as a black gay woman, who comes from a lower-income family, there are times when I walk in privilege. Sometimes those who are marginalized are so concerned with how society is treating them — with valid reason — that we fail to see how our own… Read more
Poor Elmo. Sesame Street's most naive and trusting character has been laid off in a video taking aim at Donald Trump's military-heavy, culture-light budget, which proposes slashing funding to a number of community and cultural agencies, including the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting allocates its funding amongst public broadcasters nationwide, including PBS, NPR, as well as local broadcasters across the country. Although Sesame Street has actually now moved to HBO, PBS is… Read more
Earlier this month, we got chills when women dressed up as Handmaids from The Handmaid’s Tale took over SXSW to promote the upcoming Hulu series. Now, a group of women have used similar costumes for a much more important reason: to protest Texas’ proposed abortion restrictions. Yesterday, a group of women dressed up as Handmaids and went to the Texas Senate as a means of protest. According to the Huffington Post, the Texas Senate was considering several bills that would restrict abortion, including Senate Bill 415,… Read more

"Be My Rachel Maddow" Is The Song We All Needed

By Miriam Mosher  In Entertainment  On Mar 21, 2017

Renaissance woman Lane Moore — the ukulele-slinging musician, comedian and sex writer — is back with a new video entitled “Be My Rachel Maddow.” You may know her from the queer shot-by-shot remake of Fiona Apple’s "Criminal" or from her stand-up, but either way, get excited. Dressed in teenybopper style — pigtails, bright purple eye shadow, and a bold lip — she croons, “Be my Rachel Maddow.” Saying you could be a boy or a girl, so long as you resemble Rachel and talk politics to her, she outlines Rachel's many… Read more

Target’s New Swimwear Campaign Is Unretouched And Gorgeous

By Erika W. Smith  In Style  On Mar 21, 2017

Our new favorite swimwear campaign is coming from a potentially unexpected source: Target. The retailer’s new swimwear campaign is unretouched and features four women of different sizes and races chilling in cute and colorful swimwear. You can see stretch marks and cellulite, because most women have stretch marks and cellulite and there's no reason to hide them. The photos were first released a few weeks ago but are making headlines now. It’s refreshing to see this campaign presented with so little fanfare by such a… Read more

It’s 2017, and we still can’t buy birth control without a prescription. Almost half a decade ago, the top doctors in the U.S. released a statement promoting over-the-counter birth control pills, and now more evidence has been found to help back this argument up. Research published in the Journal of Adolescent Health shows it’s completely safe for teenagers to take oral contraception. In fact, it’s even safer for teens to take the pill than adult women, because they have a lower risk of developing blood clots. Of… Read more

Happy Ostara, Thank Goddess It's Spring!

By Miriam Mosher  In Living  On Mar 20, 2017

It’s that time of year. Allergies are flaring up and winter coats are tentatively being stored. After months of hunkering down for winter, there is a palpable excitement in the air, because today, March 20, 2017, is the Spring Equinox. Thank Goddess! The Vernal Equinox, known among neopagans and Wiccans as Ostara, marks the time when the sun passes over the celestial equator. The Equinox, which translates from Latin as "equal night," is a time of perfect balance; the day is equally split between darkness and light. This… Read more
A Harvard graduate and former White House staffer for the Obama administration, Alejandra Campoverdi has a sparkling resume that should make her campaign for Congress easy — except people can’t seem to get over the fact that she modeled for Maxim. This isn’t even the first time that Campoverdi has had to deal with this issue. After becoming the White House’s first-ever deputy director of Hispanic media, she was met with sexists criticism. She was labeled “Obama’s Hottie” when several news outlets ran with the… Read more
Julia may take a while to respond, and probably won’t make eye contact, but as Sesame Street fairy Abby Cadabby would say, “That’s just Julia being Julia.” In its 47th season, the veteran PBS show will introduce its first muppet with autism, a redhead 4-year-old named Julia. She carries her favorite stuffed rabbit with her and likes to draw, sing and play with her friends Abby, Elmo and Big Bird. This follows her appearance in print and digital materials as part of the “See Amazing in All Children” initiative from… Read more
YouTube is not doing great by the LGBTQ+ community. YouTube has a “restricted mode,” which is turned off by default, but when turned on, filters out “potentially inappropriate” content. And guess what YouTube thinks is “potentially inappropriate”? Yep, LGBTQ+ people. According to the Guardian, British YouTuber Rowan Ellis, who makes videos with a feminist and queer perspective, started the #YouTubeIsOverParty (which trended over the weekend) with a video she posted on Thursday that discusses YouTube’s “restricted”… Read more

How To Make Vegan Cauliflower "Cheesesteak"

By BUST Magazine  In Eat Me  On Mar 20, 2017

This vegan cauliflower “cheesesteak” is a hoagie home run Cauliflower Buffalo wings, cauliflower rice, cauliflower “steak”–this cruciferous veggie is having a serious moment. We’re taking it next level with Philadelphia’s most beloved sandwich, the cheesesteak (roasted cauliflower and green peppers smothered with a Provolone-inspired cashew sauce and caramelized onions). The right bread is crucial: if you don’t live above a vegan hoagie roll bakery, go for French bread that’s not too crusty. Philly Cauliflower… Read more

Finally! A Tarot Deck Focused On The Beauty Of Diversity

By Rafaella Gunz  In Living  On Mar 17, 2017

Inspired by Lyric Seal Witchcraft has been around longer than just about every major religion practiced today. And though Puritans tried to kill witches off, Wicca is still alive and well. In fact, it’s becoming fashionable to embrace your inner witch. Teen Vogue even recently published a piece about “Witchy Culture” and beauty. However, traditional Tarot card decks (often used by witches to reveal one’s fate and cast spells, such as the binding spell against Donald Trump) tend to be rife with misogynistic, racist and… Read more
For many, the gym is an unwelcoming environment. The focus on diets and “beach bodies” can make some feel isolated. And for those who don’t identify with the traditional gender binary, things can be even more burdensome. For instance, transgender women have to navigate gym locker rooms with caution. Parker Molloy, a trans woman, tries to avoid locker rooms altogether. Sometimes this means going home without working out. “I've never put on or taken off an article of clothing in my gym's locker room nor do I plan on it… Read more
Hacking and electronic spying have been buzz topics lately. Most recently, Donald Trump accused Pres. Obama of spying on him via microwave, but these words have been floating through media coverage for a while now (WikiLeaks, Hillary’s emails, celebrity nudes...). It’s a current source of worry--reportedly, people have been using encryption apps to text to protect their privacy. With all these heightened security and hacking threats, everyone is on edge. But the one thing we didn’t expect to be spying on us? Our… Read more

Frida Kahlo, essential feminist artist. Rosa Parks, deemed the "first lady of civil rights" and the "mother of the freedom movement" by Congress. Amelia Earhart, the first female pilot to fly across the Atlantic ocean. Mae Jemison, the first black woman in space. Lucille Ball and Tig Notaro, legendary comedians.

Amy Winehouse, Before She Was Famous: BUST Interview

By Emily Rems  In Music  On Mar 17, 2017

When Amy Winehouse first came to the U.S. in 2007 to promote her brand new album, Back to Black, we sensed she was someone special. Of course, we had no idea how massive her career would become, or how tragically her life would end. But even back then, she had that spark that made us so excited to introduce her to the readers BUST Magazine asap.

How Do I Talk To My "Diehard Top" Girlfriend About Bottoming?

By BUST Magazine  In Sex  On Mar 16, 2017

Q: I am a versatile lesbian; I need to experience topping and bottoming to feel satisfied in my sex life. My girlfriend is a diehard top. I love her so much, but bottoming all the time is making me feel stuck and frustrated. How can I overcome my girlfriend’s stubborn stance, or at least feel more empowered in the bedroom? –Bottom Blanche Carol Queen: You and your girlfriend aren’t 100 percent compatible sexually, as you surely already realize, although you haven’t said whether you and she have talked about this.

Last Sunday, Kelly Herron was attacked in a public restroom while running in Seattle's Golden Gardens park. She wrote on her Instagram, "My biggest running nightmare became reality — 4 miles into my long run Sunday afternoon, I stopped to use the restroom and was assaulted by a man hiding in a stall." Herron's story has since gone viral, as it highlights both the necessity and efficacy of basic self-defense maneuvers and the lack of discrimination with which attackers select their victims. Using self-defense tactics… Read more
Things have been a little stressful in the United States recently, what with Trump’s latest budget proposal announcement, which promises to slash $9 billion from the US Department of Education. It’s understandable if you need a pick-me-up to distract you from the current state of the country. Look no further, because we now present to you: a toad in hats. This little guy kept coming back to Chris Newsome’s porch this past summer, so the Alabama resident decided to make his new pal some homemade hats. According to… Read more
“Is life one inferno of an eternal cosmic line?” asks Gogo, played by Marjorie Duffield, in Theater of the Ape's all-female rendition of Zamboni Godot written and directed by Ayun Halliday, inspired by Samuel Beckett’s famous existentialist piece from the '50s, Waiting for Godot. Life, to most of us, most certainly seems so. There are websites dedicated to describing the best ways to hack the Trader Joe’s lines, apps which monitor transport so as to optimize our waiting time, a whole branch of the TSA meant to speed up… Read more
Samantha Bee typically dedicates the majority of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee to unloading on the Trump administration, breaking down new policies while simultaneously (and comically) pointing out each and every flaw. However, in a segment of her latest episode, Bee turns her finger towards a new group: Democrats. She has a bone to pick with Democrats over the low, low percentage of voter turnout. While the #resistance is bringing awareness to the issues, it’s important that it moves beyond protests and marches. The… Read more
Add this book to your to-read list ASAP (if you’re not already a fan, that is).

If I say I'm an immigrant fearful of losing my current visa status due to an increasingly conservative political environment, you'd immediately have a picture in your mind, wouldn't you? You'd likely be wrong. By dint of birth, I'm what is more commonly referred to as an expatriate, which simply means I am white and from a wealthy, western country. I'm also not an immigrant to the United States but an emigrant from it; for the last six years, I've made my home in Paris, France. And, depending on the outcome of this… Read more
Remember back in 2014 when a ton of female celebrities had their nude photos stolen and published without their consent? Well, it’s happening again. Yesterday, hackers stole private photos of Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried and published them on a website called Celeb Jihad, from which they quickly spread to 4Chan, Reddit and elsewhere. Redditors are calling it “The Fappening 2.0” (in case you don’t know, “fap” is Reddit slang for “masturbate,” and the 2014 publication of stolen nude photos of female celebrities was… Read more

We Tried Virtual Reality Porn So You Don't Have To

By BUST Magazine  In Sex  On Mar 16, 2017

Where to ride the wave of virtual-reality porn The merging of pornography with virtual reality headset technology is upon us, and mainstream porn giants are already churning out titillating titles. While the vast majority of these are squarely aimed at cis-dudes, featuring the same old in-and-out, there are a few companies making VR porn for women. To experience any of the following immersive experiences, you’ll need a smartphone and a VR headset, which range in price from the $15 Google Cardboard to the $599 Oculus VR… Read more
The wage gap is a huge problem, with women still paid a fraction of their male counterparts. For white women, this is 79c for every white man's dollar; for women of color, this number drops to 60c for black women and 55c for Hispanic women. But a new Gallup-International Labour Organization survey has found that a surprising number of people across the world would still prefer women were not doing paid work at all. Yes, this is 2017. No, we're not kidding. The report, which its creators say represents 99 percent of the… Read more
As you probably already know, Ava DuVernay is directing a new movie adaptation of the classic Madeleine L’Engle YA novel A Wrinkle In Time (which, btw, makes her the first black woman to direct a film with a budget of over $100 million). DuVernay’s film has an incredible — and diverse — cast, with Storm Reid starring as Meg Murray, and Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling playing Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Who. Other cast members include Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris Pine, Andre Holland, Rowan Blanchard,… Read more
Last night, Rachel Maddow held the attention of the internet with her drawn-out release of two pages of Donald Trump's 2005 tax return. It soon became apparent that the minimal documents Maddow held were not going to drop any bombshells, other than the fact that Donald Trump did, in fact, pay taxes in 2005. But Maddow did something clever with her captive audience. She expertly drew their attention, not to what had become available, but to what still has not. From 9pm, Maddow — a Rhodes Scholar who holds a PhD in… Read more
