Amber Heard has accused her soon-to-be ex husband Johnny Depp of domestic violence. She filed for divorce last week, a brave act in an apparently abusive situation. The hashtags #IStandWithAmber and #imwithamber are popping up all over social media, and the amount of victim blaming in this situation is alarming. The hashtag #imwithjohnny is also popping up everywhere. Maybe people don’t want to believe the man behind some of their favorite films is capable of such cruelty, maybe some don’t really understand the gravity… Read more

One black and white photography magazine, Monovisions, just captured the coolest of cool: Bohemian Greenwich Village in the 1910s and '20s. A collection of pictures taken by American photojournalist Jessie Tarbox Beals just made our hit list, displaying hip shops and radical ladies exposing their ankles (and maybe more).

How To Make Delicious Fruit-Filled Paletas At Home

By BUST Magazine  In Eat Me  On May 31, 2016

Our favorite way to beat the heat is with a steady stream of popsicles, which means having a freezer full of them throughout the summer. So we tapped La Newyorkina’s Fany Gerson (, the queen of sweet Mexican treats, for her favorite DIY paletas—ice pops that let simple ingredients and fruity flavors shine. Put watermelon on cool-down duty, or get the party started with her boozy orange version below. All you need are all-in-one molds, shot glasses, or disposable cups; and some Popsicle sticks.

5 Historically Badass Women We Salute This Memorial Day

By Morgan Gartner  In Feminism  On May 27, 2016

In honor of Memorial Day, we've listed some women who have made enormous contributions to our nation's military while in the service. Here are some of the brave, badass, pioneering, flat-out incredible women that your history books probably "forgot" to mention. 1. Jacqueline Cochran While she is usually remembered as being the first woman pilot to break the sound barrier, she also has a badass military history. When she first tried to become a pilot in the US Airforce, she was denied, despite her incredible flying… Read more
“It’s crazy because it is a total boys' club. On tour, some guy said, ‘Are you a roadie?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I am a roadie,' and I got up there and played and it felt pretty good. And then I keep getting, 'Well, this is going to sound kind of misogynist.' Well then, don’t say it, dude! And then they’re like, ‘You’re really great for a woman,' or, 'You’re the best female guitarist I’ve ever seen.’” Dani Neff is constantly aware of her gender.

I Did A Sex Q & A With My Partner, So You Don’t Have To

By Mo Johnson  In Sex  On May 27, 2016

Short, heavy breaths escape our tight lips. Our chests heave up and down. I swallow hard, trying not to make a sound. Somehow, we have flipped both of our six-foot bodies all the way around, so that our heads are hanging off of the foot of my tiny twin bed. The duvet knots under my back, tangled as if there had been a category five storm. I consider readjusting, but I know the first movements after sex are always precarious. Especially the first time you sleep with a new partner.As our breathing slowed, Lee* turned… Read more

This Instagram Illuminates Life's Hidden Labia

By Morgan Gartner  In Entertainment  On May 27, 2016

Well, we found it. The best Instagram. @look_at_this_pusssy is an Instagram entirely devoted to finding everyday objects that look like labia. Founders Eva Sealove and Chelsea Jones started the account in 2014 and it grew immensely in popularity (for obvious reasons). The account features everything from trees to bed sheets to ravioli, each bearing its own unique similarities to a vagina. Nearly all of their posts are submissions from other users who have found a likeness in an unlikely place. The abundance and variety… Read more
Our own Callie Watts went looking for love on a bunch of new dating apps, and her adventures prove that truth is stranger than (erotic) fiction I’m a very social person. Usually, if I want to meet a stranger, I go to a bar alone, order a whiskey, and wait for someone to come talk to me. If I like his vibe, we’ll chat and see where it goes. And if I don’t, I’ll just rudely stare at my phone until he goes away. This old-school method still works pretty well. But I was curious about all the dating apps that had recently… Read more
Sluts: What are they? Who are they? And how do I know if I'm a slut? The world of sluttitude is nuanced, stigmatized, and complicated, BUT if you seek the answer to the latter question, you can trust that the Internet has the answer. Possibly several answers! Just Google "slut test" and you will find several in-depth quizzes that promise to tell you if you are a slut. Sound simple? Well, no: In most cases, the tests are unclear about what counts as a “sexual partner,” and which acts constitute “cheating.” This means… Read more

I actually wasn’t familiar with The Moth until Hannah Horvath, Lena Dunham’s character on the hit television series Girls, decided to take up writing again. The season 5 finale had Hannah performing at The Moth’s StorySLAM, where real people tell their true stories live without notes. These StorySLAMS are themed shows, and the theme of the evening was jealousy; Hannah chose to speak about her thoughts on Jessa and Adam's relationship.

What An Abusive Relationship Looks Like: BUST True Story

By Piyali Dasgupta  In Feminism  On May 26, 2016

They are all out there, right now. Women who face it, are facing it, day in and out. I have faced it too. And kept quiet about it, because that is what people tell you to do. Politely sweep it under the carpet, because as a woman, someone else’s crime is still your shame.It all starts very well, as always. Both seem to love each other deeply, truly and madly. Things seem to go great for a while: Steps are lighter, the heart pounds harder, and you want to smile without any reason.Intoxicating, his happiness starts to… Read more

These Photos Show Motherhood Like You've Never Seen It

By Morgan Gartner  In Arts  On May 26, 2016

Anna Ogier-Bloomer’s photography shows us the realities of motherhood and breastfeeding—and it’s intimate, sometimes exhausting and undeniably beautiful. Breastfeeding has become an extremely wide-spread and hotly debated topic. Everyone, men and women (though mostly men), seems to have something to say about whether or not a woman should breastfeed in public. This discussion generally tends to focus more on the breast and less on the woman. Anna Ogier-Bloomer reminds us that attached to that breast is a whole,… Read more

Hey, Film Festivals: Stop Inviting Woody Allen

By Nancy Chang  In Movies  On May 26, 2016

As a woman who has built her career on supporting young people, especially girls, I am ashamed that I hesitated for a moment to speak out against the selection of Woody Allen’s latest film, Café Society, to make its North American premiere as the Opening Night Film of our much beloved Seattle International Film Festival.I guess I didn’t want to offend the people I consider friends and colleagues at our hometown film festival. But then I realized that this very type of rationalizing is what helps fuel rape culture in… Read more

Tampon Tax, Begone!

By Meghan Sara  In Living  On May 26, 2016

Menstruators of New York, it's time to wave your pads in the air like you just don't care! Governor Andrew Cuomo has decreed that he will sign into law a bill abolishing the tampon tax. WGRZ reported that "the Senate approved the bill by a 56-0 vote Wednesday, following the Assembly's 144-0 vote earlier in the month," meaning that the vote against the tampon tax was fucking unanimous. U-goddamn-NANIMOUS. The tax will exempt all menstrual care items (including future products — tampons of the future!) from both the… Read more

Relax, Women! This Man Created A "Safe Space" Just For You!

By Courtney Bissonette  In Feminism  On May 26, 2016

The ever-acerbic Funny or Die does it again, creating quality internet content at the expense of social injustices women have to face. In one of their latest videos, "The Best Safe Space For Women Was Made By This Man," the website parodies "male allies" who have created a "safe space" for women. The video immediately hits on the notion of men profiting from exploiting feminism, as well as women needing men to succeed. The video follows Mark Harrison, the creator of the safe space, who indicates "The Safe Space is a… Read more

Meet The Men Behind Your Favorite Women's Websites

By Kaleigh Wright  In Entertainment  On May 26, 2016

It is no secret that the world of print magazine publishing has long been held in the tight grip of men wearing suits and ties. Dating all the way back to the very first issue of Good Housekeeping in 1885, to current issues of Vogue, men have always been cashing in on the (supposed) interests of women. So while Anna Wintour may hold the Birkin purse, it's Samuel Newhouse who holds the purse strings. But one of the greatest gifts of the Internet era is that, finally, anyone in the world has the chance to make their… Read more
THANK YOU. Finally, someone said out loud what we all say in our heads when we see mean comments about women on the internet. Here's what Amy Schumer had to say on Instagram in response to some ugly internet comments: "I meant to write 'good morning trolls!'

My So-Called Chub: BUST True Story

By Jana Schmieding  In Living  On May 25, 2016

I’m the fat, second child of three. To my right is a gorgeously complicated, petite, ethnic brainiac, and to my left is a cheerfully strapping, blonde young father. I’m the squishy middle. I can say all of this because my brand is self-deprecation, and also because it’s a goddamned fact. But be assured that I believe the term “FAT” to be pejorative and compromising, and that independently, I do not identify as FAT. I’d punch someone if I heard it directed at me. I identify as chubby because it’s a kinder term, and… Read more
Born in Munich on December 24, 1837, Her Royal Highness Duchess Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie became Empress of Austria when she married Emperor Franz Joseph at the age of 16. Though now widely acknowledged as one of the most beautiful women of 19th century Europe, Sisi, as she was known to her intimates, was not considered a great beauty in her youth. Some biographers have even referred to her as sturdy and boyish with a “round peasant face.” Highly sensitive to any perceived deficiencies in her appearance, Sisi embarked… Read more
Social expectations regarding love and marriage in China have changed drastically over the past 30 years; however, as Daniel Holmes explores in his short documentary for Aljazeera, societal and parental pressure to find a husband before age 27 still pervades the lives of Chinese women today. Labeled “sheng nu,” which translates to “leftover women,” those unmarried who are 27 or over face stigma that can have major consequences for social, work, and family life due to their perceived transgression.Such relatively sudden… Read more

8 Women We'd Love To See Play Jane Bond

By Robyn Smith  In Movies  On May 25, 2016

Bond. Jane Bond. It's time for a new 007. After Daniel Craig reportedly left the franchise, the world felt a distinctively large, sexy man-shaped hole in the film industry.

After a recent round trip into the murky world of dating, I’ve arrived back with an assortment of souvenirs such as a mildly wounded pride (from the guy who implied I was fatter in real life than my photos online indicated), an empty purse (from all the drinking I had to do to get me through the bad dates) and an acceptance that I'm much better off single.Of course, like on every good trip, I definitely learnt some new things about the world around us.

Maria Bamford Is A Comedy Rebel: From The BUST Archives

By BUST Magazine  In TV  On May 24, 2016

Like many female standup comics, Maria Bamford has a joke about wanting to get married. But her take on it is, well, different. “I do wanna get married. It just sounds great,” she begins in her naturally high, girlish voice. “You get to go grocery shopping together, and rent videos, and the kissing and the hugging underneath the cozy covers. Mmmm!” And here her voice gets a little deeper and slower: “But sometimes I worry that I don’t wanna get married as much as I’d like to be dipped in a vat of warm, rising bread… Read more

Garbage's New Single 'Empty' Sounds Like 1993

By Meghan Sara  In Music  On May 24, 2016

Garbage's first single off their upcoming album Strange Little Birds (dropping June 10th) sounds like Garbage. That's a good thing, too, because the band's ability to stay true to their heady, hard-rockin' sound all the way up to this, their sixth studio album may just be the key to maintaining their devoted fan base. Maybe it's intentional: Rolling Stone quoted the band's frontwoman, Shirley Manson, from a statement where she admitted "To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than… Read more
