How To Get Rid Of Donald Trump: An Action Plan In 3 Steps

By Greg Olear  In Living  On Dec 06, 2016

The ascension of Donald Trump to the presidency could have devastating effects: on the economy, on civil rights, on the environment, on foreign relations, on — and this is not hyperbole, given his blase attitude towards nuclear missiles — life as we know it. We need him to not be president, period; or, if president, to remove him from office as soon as possible, whether through impeachment or resignation. That is the prime directive. Here’s how: I: Don’t feed the trolls — even the famous ones. Vice President-Elect and… Read more

DAPL Protestors Win A Major Victory But The Fight's Not Over Yet

By Patricia Affriol  In General  On Dec 05, 2016

Breaking from the dark news of 2016—we finally have news to celebrate and cheer behind. Just last night, the Army Corps of Engineers denied The Energy Transfer Company the permit to drill under the Missouri River, effectively ensuring that the pipeline will be rerouted away from the land belonging to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. It’s a powerful and celebratory day for the Water Protectors and allies that have been standing ground in freezing North Dakota for months to protect the land, water, and sacred burial sites… Read more
Last night, civil rights activist, former public relations director of American Atheists, and a proud transwoman, Danielle Muscato laid down the law for President-elect Donald Trump on Twitter. After the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live, Trump decided to express his disgust for Alec Baldwin’s parody of him over Twitter. On December 4th Trump tweeted, “Just tried watching Saturday Night Live — unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse. Sad,” which inspired… Read more

By Jen Pitt  In Style  On Dec 05, 2016

The season is upon us and instead of rummaging through your closet for that old scented candle (as parodied on this week's episode of SNL), why not join us at the BUST Craftacular in Brooklyn on December 10th and 11th to get your hands on some local, artisanal jewelry.

The 1972 drama Last Tango In Paris’ infamous rape scene was not consensual, director Bernardo Bertolucci admitted in a recently surfaced video from 2013. In the video, spotted by ELLE.com, Bertolucci admits that the infamous scene in which actress Maria Schneider’s character is raped with a stick of butter was not consensual. In the video, Bertolucci says that he and Marlon Brando, who was 48 while filming, came up with the idea for the scene and decided not to tell Schneider, who was 19. Bertolucci says he didn’t tell… Read more
On November 9, I went on my first Tinder date. We matched on the app a few days before the election and started texting. (His profile: 30, white man, maybe has a ponytail?, passionate about meditation). We shared anxieties about Trump and hopes for Hillary. I had been out knocking on doors for an LGBT advocacy group, and he was attending an election night Buddhist meditation. Beyond our politics, we shared experiences in theater, were both new to the city, and had an easy rapport. I was excited to meet him. On November… Read more
Feminist band Rosie & the Riveters are about so much more than flawless, wispy hair rolls, bright red lipstick and vintage 1940s dresses. “It’s also about the music and the humor and positivity and connecting with people. For us, that’s a really big thing. Connecting with the audience,” says Allyson Reigh, the last member to join the uplifting folk band in 2011. Reigh and bandmates Alexis Normand, Melissa Nygren and Farideh Olsen strive to be an example for women. Olsen thinks women who truly love and have fun with one… Read more

Right around this time last year, porn star James Deen was accused of multiple reports of sexual assault, rape, and physical abuse by several well-known actors in the industry, including his former girlfriend Stoya and Teen Mom reality star, Farrah Abraham. While many brands, including Kink.com and The Frisky, made the decisions to cut ties with Deen at the end of 2015, his spokesperson Howard Bragman comments that “very little in James’ life has changed over the past year,” in an interview with the Daily Beast. And… Read more
Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel The Handmaid’s Tale, is scarily relevant these days. The novel follows Offred, a handmaid in a world in which women have no rights and are used solely for breeding, or in other words, Mike Pence’s vision for America. Even before the election, Atwood admitted in a Guardian interview that the world we are living in now is "close" to the fictional Republic of Gilead, comparing Trump’s campaign to the 17th-century witch hunts. It’s well-timed then, that Hulu’s adaptation of the novel… Read more

What It’s Really Like Having Trump Supporters for Parents

By Joanna C. Valente  In Feminism  On Dec 02, 2016

I didn’t live in a bubble. I’ve never really lived in a bubble. One of the things that constantly irks me, post-election, when I speak with friends (aka my white friends) is how they always seem to excuse themselves, as if living in their bubble has somehow excused their shock that Trump (aka Less Smart Voldemort) won, as if choosing love is what’s important (which is easy when all of your friends and family believe what you do). My parents — and most of my extended family — are conservative. They have historically… Read more

On Disney's 'Moana' And Climate Change

By Isabel S. Dieppa  In Movies  On Dec 02, 2016

A girl from a small island embarks on a voyage to find a demi-god, defeat a volcano monster, and save the world. That girl’s name is Moana, and she is a Disney heroine for the planet. Moana stands out from other Disney folktales and fairy tales for various reasons. Not only is she a person of color, Moana’s tale is based on real folk tales of the Pacific Islands. Unfortunately, those islands are now being swallowed by the ocean due to climate change. The story of Moana is based on real islands in the South Pacific. In… Read more

The Walking Dead actress Alanna Masterson isn’t just great at killing zombies — she’s also an expert at murdering internet trolls.Masterson, who plays Tara Chambler on the show, posted a message on Instagram to the people who have criticized her body, something she says began when she gave birth to her daughter in November 2015. The message, posted alongside a photo of Masterson's daughter, reads: Dear Instagram trolls, body shamers, and the men and woman who think it's ok to comment on my weight: I hope that you don't… Read more
ALWAYS SHINEDirected by Sophia TakalOut December 2Rating: 3/5 Within the first 10 minutes of Always Shine, it’s clear that the film was directed by a woman. In the first scene, a beautiful, up-and-coming actress, Beth (Caitlin FitzGerald, Masters of Sex), auditions for a horror movie by taking her top off and saying the words, “I’ll do anything you want!” for some sleazy producers who inform her that the film requires “extensive nudity.” A few scenes later, Beth’s best friend Anna (Mackenzie Davis, Halt and Catch Fire)… Read more
Image via Tumblr/TheCriterionCollection Although women are not as recognized or celebrated in Hollywood as they should be, there are also directors around the world whose work is rarely shown and nearly forgotten. Larisa Shepitko, a Ukrainian-born filmmaker, is one of the many international directors who received critical acclaim during her lifetime but is not a name known to many today, even consummate film buffs. Shepitko was born in 1938 in Ukrainian territory controlled by the USSR. She attended the All-Union State… Read more
This week Texas approved a law that would require health care facilities to bury or cremate aborted fetal matter, as opposed to disposing of it as medical waste. Let's reiterate that to really emphasize the issue here: Texan women who want to get a safe and legal abortion will not only have to make the difficult decision to get the procedure done, but will have to face dramatic consequences to their tissue being removed, as it is essentially given a funeral. Before the law was passed, fetuses were considered tissue… Read more
In this winter of our discontent, an uncanny light shines from the warmer hemisphere. This Tuesday, the Brazilian Supreme Court decriminalized the use of abortion within the first trimester of pregnancy. Brazil has a strict ban on abortion except in cases of rape, anencephaly — when portions of the fetus’ brain are missing, or when the mother’s life is at risk. Though illegal, Galileu, a popular science magazine, estimates that about two thousand women get abortions everyday. More shocking is the statistic that between… Read more

By Emma Bredthauer  In Feminism  On Dec 01, 2016

Pussyhat Project artist @auroralady modeling her hat/snarling at the patriarchy Today in AWESOME: A coalition of L.A.-based knitters have launched an initiative called The Pussyhat Project with the goal of making 1.17 MILLION bright pink, cat-eared (“pussy”) hats to protest Trump’s inauguration! The hats will be given to women and allies to wear at the Women’s March on Washington, as well as to folks who can’t make it to D.C. on Inauguration Day who want to demonstrate solidarity. We're so happy to have the crochet… Read more
Mean Girls “We survived Ceausescu. We’ll survive this idiot, too.” My mother’s words sink in over the phone the morning after Trump is announced as president-elect. I feel bitterness, hope, anger, and resilience all at once. I want to believe that no single person can have that much influence on day-to-day life, on freedom. But the political is always personal. As a first-generation Romanian American, I’ve seen the consequences of red politics, communist and conservative, on women’s health and well-being. When Trump is… Read more

By Katie McBeth  In Living  On Dec 01, 2016

Scrubs Fellow disenfranchised readers: Are you at a loss on what to do after this whole Trump upset? If you’re anything like me, you’re not just burnt out on the constant flood of upsetting news since November 8th, but you’re also rearing to find a way to fight back. What if I told you there’s a way to do it and get paid?? BUST writer Patricia already covered a great list of ways to directly act out and protest Trump, but I would like to offer up some alternatives. These might be a bit more long-term — and some of them… Read more

The Julie Ruin at Irving Plaza, Two Days After the Election

By Marisa Crawford  In Music  On Dec 01, 2016

Photo by Shervin Lainez On Thursday, November 10th, two days after the election, I went to see former Bikini Kill frontwoman Kathleen Hanna’s newest band, The Julie Ruin, play at Irving Plaza in New York City. I had bought the tickets months in advance and planned to go with two friends who had both grown up listening to riot grrrl; I expected it to be fun and nostalgic. When I realized the show would be happening two days after the election, I thought it would be a sweetly celebratory experience to ring in the… Read more

Trevor Noah earned his stripes Wednesday night, when he invited right-wing conservative Tomi Lahren onto The Daily Show and engaged her in a thoughtful interview on Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter, and immigration. As someone who is not known for his superior interviewing skills, the engaging debate is potentially Noah's best work on the show to date. Lahren hosts "Tomi," a political commentary on Glenn Beck's news network The Blaze, and is the so-called voice of millennial conservatives. You might remember her from… Read more
Earlier this week, a video speculating that Barron Trump has autism went viral on YouTube. Many people, including comedian and actor Rosie O’Donnell, have joined the conversation. I am by no means a fan of Donald Trump or his political agenda, but it is absolutely inappropriate to speculate about whether or not his 10-year-old child is on the autism spectrum. The YouTube video was made by James Hunter, who is autistic himself, and came from a place of empathy for Barron and a desire for public education about autism.… Read more

I Had A 'Gilmore Girls' Weekend With My Mom And It Was Fabulous

By Sidney Wollmuth  In TV  On Dec 01, 2016

When my mom recommended I try Gilmore Girls last year, I decided to give it a shot. Almost immediately, I fell in love with the witty banter, the corny theme song, the heaps and heaps of junk food, but most of all: the undeniable affection between Rory and Lorelai.It’s rare to see such a healthy relationship between a teenage daughter and her mother on TV. Most shows nowadays are revolved around teenagers sneaking around and lying to their parents, which makes for good entertainment, sure, but I can’t say I really… Read more

These Dolls With Natural Hair Are A Holiday Gift No-Brainer

By Kelly Walters  In Living  On Nov 30, 2016

This holiday season, instead of an American Girl doll, consider buying the young girls (and boys!) in your life a diverse doll created specifically to boost self-esteem. Dr. Lisa Williams created the Positively Perfect doll company to offer dolls that represented multicultural children like hers, and that reflected their beauty. Williams said that she launched the company to, "Encourage dreams, promote intelligence, challenge perceptions, and open [children's] hearts to all types of beauty." In order to reach a diverse… Read more
In the wake of the election, we’re searching for any sliver of a silver lining we can find, and Pun Champion Sam Corbin has seriously delivered with her “50 Powerful Lady Puns (in 120 seconds).” The spoken word piece is an anti-Trump tirade that works in the names of 50 awesome ladies from Meryl Streep to Malala Yousafzai and Shirley Chisholm to Sojourner Truth. Corbin is a writer and performer based in Brooklyn, and several-time winner of Punderdome 3000, ‘New York’s most puntastic’ monthly competition. Her piece,… Read more
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine earlier this month, Evan Rachel Wood quietly came forward about her past experiences with sexual assault and how her own traumas have helped to develop her character in HBO’s Westworld. However, on November 28th, Wood decided to fully come out about her past on her Twitter account by publicizing a letter that she has sent to journalist Alex Morris after the interview had initially taken place. In the letter, Wood blatantly addresses the struggles that she continues to face… Read more
A popular clickbait caption last week read, “Trump Says He Is ‘Fine’ With Same-Sex Marriage.” Each article used this spin in their headlines discussing Trump’s recent 60 Minutes interview with Lesley Stahl. It wasn’t shocking to view a lackluster message to his bigoted followers, or a suggestion to reverse Roe v. Wade. The interview aired during the same span of time where he appointed his Chief of Staff, Steve Bannon, ringleader of the alt-right. Then there’s his vice president who believes gays can be electrocuted… Read more

This Google Chrome Extension Changes 'Alt-Right' To 'Neo-Nazi'

By Kelly Walters  In Living  On Nov 30, 2016

As the neo-Nazi organization that refers to itself as the "alt-right" continues to gain support in the U.S., media outlets and media consumers are struggling with what language should be used in reference to its members. As we at BUST have written in the past, the term "alt-right" is used in an attempt to rebrand white nationalism, and using it dangerously misrepresents the ideals of its supporters. That's why an advertising professional, who goes by the pseudonym George Zola, created a Google Chrome extension called… Read more
For the latest in our series on women photographers, Lady Shooters, Tara Wray interviews LA-based street photographer Michelle Groskopf Can you tell the readers of BUST Magazine what you do? And describe how you came to be the photographer you are today? My work is an almost anthropological account of how I see the world, or at least the faces and details that draw my attention while I go about my day. It’s me saying, “Look at this face, isn’t it striking? Look at these hands, look what they tell you about the person.”… Read more

Dear Dad, Why Aren’t You Listening to Me?

By BUST Magazine  In Living  On Nov 30, 2016

Dear Dad, I hope you've been well since we last spoke. I know we got in that argument before the election and we haven't spoken since, but I figured it was time to reach out. To be honest, I haven't been feeling quite like myself these days and I want to tell you about it. There have been many events this year that have inspired me to look back into my past and pinpoint moments when I wasn’t okay. You might be wondering why I never told you about these experiences, but it wasn't until recently that I realized something… Read more

When Fortune Telling Could Land You In Jail

By Mimi Matthews  In Living  On Nov 30, 2016

Question to the Cards by Édouard Bisson, 1889 “...every person pretending or professing to tell fortunes, or using any subtle craft, means, or device, by palmistry or otherwise, to deceive and impose on any of his Majesty’s subjects...shall be deemed a rogue and vagabond.” — Excerpt from The Vagrancy Act of 1824 Crystal gazing, palmistry, and other forms of fortune-telling were quite popular during the 19th century.

After Trump, Liberal Women Are Considering Buying Guns

By Patricia Affriol  In Feminism  On Nov 29, 2016

A few days after the election, Noel decided that she wanted to learn to shoot a gun—a thought that would have repulsed her before. “Guns are part of a violent culture that I wanted nothing to do with and had no reason to worry about. I have friends who offered to teach me to shoot guns over the years. And I scoffed. Why would I need to shoot a gun?” Now, however, the Wisconsin native is determined to take shooting classes. “I worry that strong women, like many others, will be walking around with an increasingly large… Read more

This Is How Tom Price Will Hurt Your Reproductive Rights

By Eleonor Botoman  In Living  On Nov 29, 2016

Donald Trump has appointed another cabinet member this week, this time appointing former Georgia Senator and House Representative Tom Price to serve as the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. As the leader of the 80,000 person department, Price would oversee all of the major government healthcare programs including Obamacare, Medicaid, Medicare, the Children's Health Insurance Program, the FDA, the CDC, and the NIH (the list goes on). Price would also oversee different issues such as vaccines, medical research… Read more

Featuring strong pop vocals and hip-hop inflected drums, the song is perfect for blasting in the car with your girls on a night out — but it also has a message.

It journeys through a lot of different and difficult times in life, my romantic relationships, my varied… Read more
The Pirelli calendar is continuing its makeover! The luxury calendar, which was first released in 1962 as a promotional calendar for Italian tire company Pirelli, spent over 50 years producing highly sexualized, photoshopped, and usually nude images of supermodels including Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, and Iman — including some underage models, such as a 16-year-old Naomi Campbell, who posed topless for Pirelli in 1987. Last year, the calendar underwent a major makeover. Annie Leibovitz shot a diverse and talented group… Read more

These Homemade Holiday Cookies Are (Almost) Too Adorable To Eat

By BUST Magazine  In Eat Me  On Nov 29, 2016

Make holiday cookies that are too cute to eat! Frosted sugar cookies are a holiday staple. But those green Christmas trees with grocery store sprinkles are kind of played.

Anna Yocca, now 32, was arraigned yesterday on grand jury felony charges of aggravated assault with a weapon, attempted procurement of a miscarriage and attempted criminal abortion according to Circuit Court records. This case first began back in September 2015 after Yocca, in an attempt to "self-abort" her 24-week-old fetus with a coat hanger in her bathtub, was taken to the hospital by her boyfriend because she was bleeding excessively after the procedure. Although the baby survived, he sustained injuries from the… Read more
There is outrage in Morocco after a local television program ran a segment instructing women on how to cover up evidence of domestic violence using makeup. The show, Sabahiyat, brought on a woman with fake bruises on her face and had a makeup artist explain the best cover-up plan as if it were any other YouTube tutorial. From what face powder to use so that bruises don't show later in the day, to the best application to a sore face, the artist feeds right into the notion that domestic abuse should not be talked about… Read more

Korean Lawmaker Fights to Raise Consent Age

By Myra Pearson  In Feminism  On Nov 29, 2016

Kim Seung-hee, a lawmaker from South Korea’s ruling Saenuri Party, is backing a bill to increase the statutory rape age in Korea from 13 to 16. She hopes that raising the age of consent will help combat child trafficking of minors, which has been on a five-year rise. According to the Korean Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, the reported number of sex trafficking victims doubled between 2011 and 2014, with 48% of victims between the ages of 13 and 15. The average age of the victims was 14.8 years old; nearly half… Read more
While Barack Obama may have made history as the first President to have an active Twitter account, Trump may be the first President to have his account banned. From sexism to Islamophobia, Trump has shown that he has no filter when it comes to posting — and this Sunday’s tweet about election fraud is no exception. Trump’s tweet came after a firestorm of posts which referred to the Clinton campaign saying it would participate in a recount of the states that were headed by Green Party nominee, Jill Stein. In the tweet,… Read more
Searching for the perfect holiday gift for the girl who has everything? Well, look no further: Artist Orien O’ Neill has created a line of clit-themed jewelry that’s both elegant and anatomically correct! Inspired by the internal clitoris, the Clitoring is hand-crafted in Bushwick, New York to be a fun conversation piece as well as a gorgeous accessory. If its wishbone-like shape is unfamiliar to you, that’s because it wasn’t until 2009 that French researchers Dr. Odile Buisson and Dr. Pierre Foldès gave the medical… Read more
I watched the entire new season of Gilmore Girls on Saturday, and to be honest, I’m still processing. A Year In The Life definitely felt like the old Gilmore Girls....but the most frustrating parts of the old Gilmore Girls. Like when Rory stole a yacht or stopped speaking to Lorelai for an entire season. Or when the show implied that Rory was the “good kid” and got into Harvard because she was a virgin, while Paris was the “bad kid” and didn’t get into Harvard because she had consensual sex with her boyfriend. Of… Read more
