What Makes Mean Girls Mean?

By BUST Magazine  In Feminism  On Apr 28, 2016

What makes mean girls mean? It's a question that has intrigued feminists, parents, and Hollywood for decades, but what do scientists have to say about this seemingly inevitable social phenomenon? The latest theories may blow your mind. One of my favorite books as a child was The Against Taffy Sinclair Club. It was a YA novel about a group of fifth-grade girls who form a club devoted to dissing their classmate Taffy. What was so wrong with Taffy? Well for starters, she made the egregious mistake of growing boobs. I… Read more

By Tricia Lowther  In Music  On Apr 28, 2016

It’s easy to understand why powerful women and girls in literature have often proved to be inspirational characters for songwriters. Authors have already created compelling characters and storylines for lyrics, so the addition of a decent tune should equal a hit. Check out these ten top tunes, all sparked by fictional females: Charlotte SometimesPenny Farmer’s haunting children’s book Charlotte Sometimes (1969) is the inspiration for this single by The Cure from 1981.

Filthy, feminist, and fabulous—Brooke Candy is a pop star for a new ear. Here, she models some freaky fall fashions, and delivers some real talk. A former stripper and the daughter of Hustler’s one-time CFO, 25-year-old rapper Brooke Candy first caught our eye when she appeared in Grimes’ 2012 video for the song “Genesis” and pretty much stole the show. With her insanely long pink braids, metal body suits, and stacked raver-style sneakers, it was impossible to keep your eyes off her. Later in 2012, Candy released her… Read more

Happy Coretta Scott King’s birthday! The activist and Civil Rights leader was born on April 27, 1927 and died in 2006.

12 Haunting Images Of The Abandoned 'Wizard Of OZ' Theme Park

By Olivia Harrison  In Arts  On Apr 27, 2016

When I was a kid, I loved The Wizard of Oz. Despite the fact that I found the flying monkeys and the Wicked Witch of the West utterly horrifying, I watched the movie over and over every chance I got. It was my first experience with loving the feeling of being scared, which now manifests itself in my love of the horror genre. It felt exhilarating to watch something with the underlying tone of terror, which came from Dorothy's feeling of being lost and alone. The set itself reflected the hopeless fear of her journey.… Read more

How To Undress In Front Of Your Husband

By Myra Pearson  In Sex  On Apr 27, 2016

An “educational” film from 1937, “How to Undress in Front of Your Husband” begins with a warning to women that men could be watching us at any time. The male gaze — er, I mean, candid cameraman — snoops on two women while they are undressing alone in their bedroom, as the narrator explains:“In the old days the boudoir was considered a sanctuary where a lady could retire, if she wished to, in privacy. But in this age of snooping reporters and candid cameramen, nothing is sacred.” That’s right, ladies! The male gaze… Read more
We caught up with celebrated stylist Patricia Field as she prepared to close her legendary New York store. But for this iconic septuagenarian, the end of an era is more like a new beginning. You may not know Patricia Field’s name, but it’s impossible not to have seen her work. As the costume designer for Sex and the City, the most fashion-forward show of the late ’90s and early aughts, she was responsible for Carrie’s tutu in the title sequence and that classic nameplate necklace. The Emmy Award-winning stylist also… Read more
On Monday, Paul Nungesser, the alleged rapist of Columbia University graduate Emma Sulkowicz, filed a suit against the university for gender-based harassment.

It’s well-known that Hollywood doesn’t like seeing women of a certain age onscreen — and, far too often, “a certain age” means 35. In 2015, a study found that just 30% of the already limited number of women shown onscreen are over 40, compared to 53% of men.Director Lorene Scafaria knows just how hard it is to get movies about older women made.

Let’s Talk About Intersex

By Rebecca Long  In Sex  On Apr 26, 2016

It is 2016. Young women like Amandla Stenberg and Rowan Blanchard are using their public platforms to start complex conversations about gender equality. Activists like Janet Mock and Laverne Cox are helping to increase transgender visibility in the media and by extension, in society. Matt McGorry is publicly (and hilariously) exploring how to "do feminism" as a man. Jaden Smith is the face of Louis Vuitton's new womenswear campaign, challenging the idea of gendered clothing and rocking the heck out of some outrageously… Read more
The cardinal complaint about online dating, other than the constant questioning of why did he feel the need to send that dick pic, is how difficult it is to meet online matches in person.Tinder user Jackie Daddio decided to solve this problem by inviting every single one of her Tinder matches to a collective picnic. After making a Facebook event called Jackie’s Collective Tinder Date, she individually messaged over 600 of her Tinder matches a link to her event page and the message “Come to this.

How I'm Fighting Rape Culture With Denim: BUST True Story

By Stewella Daville  In Style  On Apr 26, 2016

Denim Day is an international movement that grew out of protest to a 2010 rape case that was overturned because the judge said that the survivor's tight jeans meant that she must have helped her rapist remove them.

We’ve got good news and bad news about Twitter.The bad news is that Twitter seems to be notorious for online harassment: doxing, threats of violence, public shaming, Gamergate, MRAs, rape threats — we could go on.

Redefining 'Netflix And Chill'

By Zane Rubin  In Movies  On Apr 25, 2016

For a world so big, people have never seemed to stop asking themselves the basic question of “How do I meet other people?” When you live on a planet of seven billion, a part of you just wants to say, “Just walk outside! That’s it.” But it never really seems to be that easy; especially in the age we live in, where people feel more comfortable with a virtual interaction than one of the physical form. In fact, it would seem that the more comfortable we become with meeting people online, the more fearful we are of having… Read more

Women Are Targets For Online Harassment: No One Is Surprised

By Alyssa Spizzirro  In Feminism  On Apr 25, 2016

The internet is an amazing place to share thoughts and ideas and create a unique dialogue between writers and their readers. I am grateful for criticisms, new information, and the expansion of a conversation though the format of online comments. What I don’t appreciate are hateful, obtrusive, and obnoxious comments. What scares me the most are comments containing threats and violence. This is a reality that writers face in their field, and while it varies and there is a spectrum, online harassment is most likely to… Read more

A Letter To My Autistic Brother: BUST True Story

By Danniah Daher  In Living  On Apr 25, 2016

Adam is 18 years old and a senior in high school—he loves pizza, nature, pretty girls and video games. He despises mowing the lawn and prefers to spend much of his time in his bedroom playing on his iPhone. When in a bookstore, the manga section is his top priority. He talks about wanting to go college to become a zoologist. Some days this changes to veterinarian. Other days this changes to, “Maybe we should just open our own food truck.” Sounds pretty typical, right? If you ever met Adam, though, you wouldn’t think he… Read more

By Erika W. Smith  In Music  On Apr 25, 2016

Beyoncé has done it again.

Having Your Period In Space Will Not Destroy The Galaxy

By Kaleigh Wright  In Living  On Apr 25, 2016

In 1964, Lovelace’s Women in Space Program was given the shaft after a paper written by a couple dudes who felt their masculinity being threatened stated that women shouldn’t go to space because, well... Periods. They convinced NASA that putting a hormonal woman in control of a “complicated machine” was a bad idea; that somehow, women free bleeding in zero gravity would be detrimental to the galaxy as a whole. There was also talk of “retrograde menstruation," a completely made up condition that would cause blood to flow… Read more
Photographer Danielle Guenther's photo series "What The Bump?!" is not your typical maternity shoot... That is to say, there's no beaming couples standing back-to-front, prom date style, making heart-hands over an exposed pregnant belly.

Instead of the cliches usually found in maternity shoots, Guenther captures the realites of pregnancy: cravings,… Read more

7 Ways Prince Was An Ally To Women

By Becky Brown  In Feminism  On Apr 22, 2016

Prince Rogers Nelson, the icon known as Prince, passed away at age 57 in his home in Minnesota Thursday, and we’re still recovering. Unlike many popular musicians in the early 80s, Prince emerged as an entirely unique, gender-bending artist who broke the barriers of gender conformity, as well as increasing the visibility of female sexual appetite. Yes, he did become a republican who didn’t vote because he was a devoted Jehovah's Witness, and yes, he also spoke against gay marriage later in life, but that doesn’t… Read more

The lure of fast fashion is hard to resist — it’s hard to say no to super affordable, super trendy clothes that you know will get you all of the likes on Instagram and all of the compliments on the sidewalk. I’ve shopped fast fashion for a number of reasons: being broke enough that spending more than $20 on a piece of clothing feels like a luxury; coveting a pricey designer style and finding an affordable knockoff; and simply enjoying being able to walk into a brick-and-mortar store instead of searching online and paying… Read more
FROM THE EARLY, gross-out cult films like Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble to the later, more mainstream escapades—like Hairspray and Cry-Baby—esoteric music has always been central to the John Waters cinematic experience. So it should come as no surprise that the director/actor/writer/photographer has branched out yet again as the musical curator of bizarre holiday-song collections. Hot on the heels of last year’s irreverent A John Waters Christmas, New Line Records is releasing A Date with John Waters just in time… Read more

'The Meddler' Is A Snapshot Of Life After 60: BUST Review

By Anastasia K Zimitravich  In Movies  On Apr 22, 2016

Beginning as a comedic trope of the meddlesome needy mother imposing on her daughter’s life, The Meddler could have digressed into a story of codependency or farcical feminine competitiveness a la Monster-in-Law, but it didn’t. Susan Sarandon plays Marnie, a widow in denial who distracts herself with consumerism and shallow, yet intrusive, relationships with strangers around her. As her daughter pulls away to grieve her father’s death and rebuild her life after the end of a long-term relationship, Marnie also tries to… Read more
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love John Waters and assholes. I am, of course, one of the former, so I was thrilled to get the chance to interview the man dubbed by William S.

No one can touch his brilliant sense of whacked-out humor or his unique flair for glorifying trash. John graciously met me at his New York City pied-à-terre, a very posh pre-war apartment… Read more

3 Vital Relationship Lessons From The Kama Sutra

By BUST Magazine  In Sex  On Apr 22, 2016

Vātsyāyana’s Kama Sutra, an ancient Hindu sex manual written sometime between 400 BCE and 200 CE, has a reputation for mainly being a compendium of body-bending erotic positions and mind-bendingly archaic relationship advice. But upon closer inspection, the text also contains plenty of tips for keeping the flames of romance burning that are as applicable now as they were back in the day. Here are a few pearls of wisdom gleaned from this guide that might surprise you.1. Pass It OnModern-day sex education is abysmal when… Read more

Break out your Seder plates because Passover is upon us. The Seder is the most commonly celebrated Jewish ritual, and it is performed in celebration of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Exodus 13:8 commands the retelling of the story of liberation every year; the verse reads, "You shall tell your child on that day, saying, 'It is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.'"

52 Weeks of Directors: Amma Asante

By Lauren C. Byrd  In Movies  On Apr 22, 2016

2009 did not get off to a good start for Amma Asante. Within a couple of weeks, three projects she was commissioned to write and direct collapsed. A couple were Hollywood studio projects and the third was a British indie, a labor of love for Asante. In an article penned for The Independent, she said she began to over analyze, wondering if she was really fit to forge her way in the film industry.But in her moments of self-doubt, producer Damian Jones sent her a photo of an 18th century portrait.

You are here and your sweetheart is there...either across a crowded room or across a continent. What to do?
