This HYSTERICAL CollegeHumor video addresses that “dumb double standard” in the TV industry that’s got so many ladies’ feathers ruffled. No, not the pay grade one … or the leading actress/actor ratio one… or the one where “30 Rock” isn’t on the air anymore. (Not quite a double standard but an issue I, as a woman, have.)  These female comedians have “a boner to pick” with HBO … for not giving us the D. It’s true! For every time we see Hannah Horvath’s tits, or Daenerys Targaryen’s...
    When my mother got engaged in 1979, she and my father decided against a traditional proposal. There was no expensive dinner, no bended knee and no ring. In the wake of second-wave feminism, my mother felt that a ring served as an unfair indicator that she belonged to my father; she would not wear a symbol to ward off other men if my father did not bear a similar marker.  Has culture surrounding engagement rings changed today?

But before she was breaking hearts and taking names in Parks and Rec, she and a group of co-conspirators made this trailer for Teen Hag, a salty spin on the movie Teen Wolf, "coming to a cave nowhere near you … 6/6/6." Plaza basically plays an awkward teenage girl (what else is new) who comes into her own...
(And speaking of Gloria Steinem…)  Here at BUST, Gloria Steinem is our golden girl, and apparently the White House thinks so too. The Associated Press reported last Thursday that Ms. Steinem was among the 16 recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States’ highest civilian honor. Four other women were also chosen to receive the award: Oprah Winfrey, Sally Ride, country singer Loretta Lynn and glass-ceiling-breaking judge Patricia Wald. Honorees are recognized for their contributions to society, in all shapes and sizes. More than 500...
