BUST: For Women With Something To Get Off Their Chests - BUST
Nashville singer-songwriter Tristen has released her new music video, "Partyin’ Is Such Sweet Sorrow," and her luminous libretto won’t be the only thing imprinted on your mind. While making the video, Tristen explored a question that has tormented many women: why our lives, characters, and overall beings are so often created by, for, and through the male perspective. Tristen soaked in the man-makes-woman perspective, turned the tables by casting a "lover boy" to lip sync her satisfyingly melancholic vocals in the music… Read more
Out on Netflix today, Irreplaceable You tackles some difficult questions: What would you do if you knew you were going to die? What would you do if you knew the love of your life was going to die?

Irreplaceable You, brought to life by a starry cast including Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror: San Junipero, A Wrinkle in Time) and Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones,… Read more

On Tuesday, Chloe Kim killed it when she won a gold medal in the women’s halfpipe, making history as the youngest woman to ever win an Olympic snowboarding medal. Sadly, but unsurprisingly, it took only one day for a public figure—Patrick Connor of Barstool Radio’s SiriusXM show Dialed-In With Dallas Braden—to sexualize Kim, who is also only 17 years old. Following immediate backlash, Connor was fired from his job at San Francisco-based radio station KNBR-AM, reports Deadspin. Bye! To be fair, all three men—Connor, his… Read more

This Book Explores How Carl Jung Ripped Off Toni Wolff's Ideas

By Katherine L. McDaniel  In Books  On Feb 15, 2018

Dr. Nan Savage Healy's book Toni Wolff & C. G. Jung: A Collaboration explores how analyst Toni Wolff's ideas and work were basically stolen by Carl Jung, who appropriated Toni’s insights and theories and gave her no credit. In 1910, Toni was a young student from a wealthy Zurich family when she met Jung, who was married and middle-aged. As she worked with Jung, among other things, Wolff developed and elaborated on fundamental archetypal roles for women, especially the maternal (mother) and hetaira (courtesan), both… Read more
In the Georgian drama film My Happy Family, Manana (Ia Shughliashvili), a middle-aged schoolteacher, decides to move out of the apartment she shares with her parents, her husband, her children, and nearly everyone reacts with varying degrees of scorn and shock. Manana’s own reticence to explain her sudden change of heart certainly compounds her family’s confusion; as she stoically gathers her things together and loads them in bags, she’s followed by an increasingly hysterical cacophony of curses and pleas. Why did… Read more
Four years ago, Robin Thede auditioned for Saturday Night Live, but didn’t get the job. Three months later, when cast member Kenan Thompson was asked why a black woman hadn’t been hired for the show in six years, he declared that all those who’d tried out were “never ready.” Clearly others did not agree, however, because in 2015, Thede became the first African-American woman to become head writer on a late-night talk show—The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. And now, she’s starring on her own weekly late-night show,… Read more

Free Download: Feminist Erotica for Women

By BUST Magazine  In Sex  On Feb 14, 2018

BUST Magazine has been including a sex-positive erotic story in every issue of the magazine for the past 20 years. Why? Because we believe women deserve sexual pleasure, and should be encouraged to find out what turns them on, rather than always being told what they need to do in order to turn other people on—the message most women are bombarded with from an early age. Called "One-Handed Reads," these stories are meant to be enjoyed in the privacy of your own boudoir, with perhaps a toy or two to assist in the… Read more

We’re trying a new feature here at BUST.com—a roundup of the day’s biggest feminist political and pop culture news. Here are our picks for February 14, also known as Valentine's Day.

What I Learned From A Year Without Porn

By Galla Barrett  In Sex  On Feb 14, 2018

To me, masturbation is and has always been exploration, empowerment and entertainment. The first time I masturbated, I was 10 years old. During a sleepover, my sister and cousin and I had watched the French softcore erotic film Emmanuelle on German television. Like most people, I started masturbating with porn I found by coincidence. I started secretly seeking out erotic films on TV, and soon, the internet allowed for access any time of day. Once I got my own laptop in college and all my content became seemingly… Read more
Some people like their lovemaking to be violent and furious: two bodies driven mad with a desire that cannot be contained. Some like it slow and sensual: a passionate congress of body, mind and soul. Me, I like my lovemaking to be obligatory. Waking up on my birthday thinking, “let’s get this over with so I can go eat pancakes," coming home after a big anniversary dinner and having half-asleep coitus while drenched in meat sweats. For those of my ilk, there is no more exciting date on the calendar than Valentine’s Day,… Read more

Victorian Verses To Reject Unwanted Valentines With

By Mimi Matthews  In Books  On Feb 14, 2018

Published in 1875, The Lover’s Poetic Companion and Valentine Writer is a book intended for Victorian ladies and gentlemen “who wish to address those they love in suitable terms.” It contains a variety of Valentine verses, ranging from the sweet to the satirical. The book promises that these “Love Lyrics” are harmless and that even the more comical lines do not descend into vulgarity. But what these verses lack in vulgarity, they more than make up for in unkindness and — in some instances — outright cruelty. Much of… Read more

4 Models Turned Plus-Size Lingerie Designers

By BUST Magazine  In Living  On Feb 14, 2018

As plus-size models have become more visible over the past few years, several have branched out from modeling into designing—especially lingerie. Ashley Graham first partnered with retailer Addition Elle for her lingerie collaboration way back in 2013, but lately, she’s been joined by others. Big-breasted ladies know how hard it is to find a bra above a C cup that’s not beige, or to find an E cup or larger at all. And of course, we’re all about finding plus-size options for undies, negligees, and other sexy little… Read more

The Worst Gifts My Ex-Boyfriends Ever Gave Me

18 Ida B. Wells Quotes and Photos To Inspire Your Activism

By Cricket Epstein  In Feminism  On Feb 13, 2018

In 1887, 68 years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white passenger on a bus in Alabama, Ida B. Wells rejected racial segregation, refusing to sit in the “colored only” section of a train car. Born on the cusp of emancipation in Mississippi on June 16, 1862, Ida B. Wells was a journalist, educator, activist, and cofounder of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). A bona-fide badass long before the term was part of our cultural lexicon, she was a pioneer in the fight for… Read more
Though Victorians can be credited with helping to popularize—and commercialize—Valentine’s Day, when it comes to holiday fashions, their contribution to history is somewhat lackluster. There were no heart-printed gowns or heart-shaped hats. Instead, as noted in an 1880 edition of the Staffordshire Sentinel, ladies were encouraged to don “something pretty and useful.” In 1880, the most popular variety of that “something” was a richly ornamented fan.Victorian fans were accessories of great beauty. Most often paired with… Read more

Roosevelt's presidential campaign and then developed a close relationship with Eleanor. “Hick” was known as a lesbian and she was also known to say she was in love with Eleanor. Although historians acknowledge the two women exchanged letters and were openly affectionate, whether they had a physical relationship is still debated. The novel,… Read more

Poet Olivia Gatwood Writes Like Teen Spirit: BUST Interview

By Victoria Albert  In Feminism  On Feb 13, 2018

If anyone was going to write a poem called “Ode to My Bitch Face,” it would be Olivia Gatwood. Even as a teenager, she was tough: At 16, she led 20 women in a class-action sexual harassment lawsuit against her boss at a local bakery — a lawsuit that she later won. A year later, she was a vocal opponent of her soccer team’s bikini-based car washes. Eight years later, society still harasses and commodifies women at astounding rates. But now, the 25-year-old Gatwood has a much bigger platform from which to fight back.… Read more

Society has been obsessed with these fancy fish ladies for thousands of years, and we’re going to look at some of the legends that gave birth to these aquatic marvels. Just in case you haven’t come across The Little Mermaid and its ilk: What is a mermaid? Well, a mermaid is a creature with the top half of a lady and the bottom half of a big ole fish. The modern name for mermaid comes from the old English Mer, meaning sea, and Maid, meaning a young lady; thus, mermaid (which sounds way better than "sea-young lady").… Read more

In October 2017, an 18-year-old girl — known as Anna Doe in court documents and who posts on social media under the screenname Anna Chambers — came forward to accuse two NYPD cops of arresting, then raping her. Six months later, she's still fighting for justice, and her story is inspiring a fight for legislation to make it illegal for cops to have sex with people they arrest — something that is legal in 35 states, including New York. We've been following Anna's story since October, but her case is getting renewed… Read more

On Being Fat In Ways White Girls Don’t Understand

By Savala Nolan Trepczynski  In Feminism  On Feb 08, 2018

I’m fat in ways that white girls won’t understand. I’m fat in ways that my white mom didn’t understand, and still doesn’t; nearing 75, she diets and rebels, diets and rebels. (When she sleeps at our house, she sometimes waits until the lights are out, then pads to the kitchen and eats more, leaning alone against the counter. At Thanksgiving, the table in candlelight, she says, “Starting tomorrow, no more sugar and no more junk.” She is my mom; I wish she were free.) I’m fat in ways only black girls understand.

Remembering Feminist Porn Pioneer Candida Royalle

By BUST Magazine  In Sex  On Feb 08, 2018

Long before the creation of SlutWalks and Cindy Gallop’s MakeLoveNotPorn.tv, there was feminist porn pioneer Candida Royalle. Royalle, who passed away from ovarian cancer at age 64 in 2015, was a performer-turned-entrepreneur who turned the typically male gaze of porn on its head by directing and producing erotic films for women. Born Candice Marion Vadala on October 15, 1950, in Brooklyn, NY, Royalle moved to San Francisco in 1971 for its thriving performance art scene, and soon joined gender-bending theater troupe… Read more

Because, baby steps.” Back in October 2016, Melissa Villaseñor went meta on Saturday Night Live when America was in the heat of the presidential election.

The Strange Role Cats Played In Victorian Fashion

By Mimi Matthews  In Style  On Feb 07, 2018

“As the basket was padded and lined with satin, and bedizened with fringe and ribbons, pussy did not object to being a prisoner therein, and to being placed on the lady’s bustle as a pack.” —Truth, 1887 During the mid-1880s, the silhouette of women’s gowns was characterized by the size and shape of the bustle or “dress improver.” Unlike the more moderate-sized dress improvers of the 1870s, the bustle of the 1880s was—at its most extreme—large, protruding, and shelf-like. For fashionable ladies with cats, it provided a… Read more

Before the assault, Thurman had worked with Weinstein on Pulp Fiction… Read more
