It’s a common problem: dressers stuffed to capacity with keepsake T-shirts from teams, alma maters, and epic rock shows that are 2 Cool + 2 Be = 4 Gotten. Sure, they’re all great reminders of ragers gone by, but how many of these shmatas do those who hoard them actually wear? The answer is most assuredly, “not many.” Which is why a T-shirt quilt is such a great gift idea. When the logos from all those old shirts are removed and stitched together with a comfy...

  In some cultures, religious talismans and sacred objects are kept out of the hands of women for fear that females will rob them of their power, a power coded as “masculine.” And according to Harvard Business School’s Jill J. Avery, ours is one of these cultures... when it comes to our worshipful treatment of the products we consume.    While it might be relatively easy for women to appropriate products labeled as manly, like deodorant or razors designed primarily for men, men are harshly scrutinized for using...

  BUSTies, you only live once. And it would certainly be a shame to spend your precious time on Earth playing it safe with your fashion choices. Just when you thought YOLO, the acronym that has been a target for ridicule since its conception, was gone for good, the social media phrase has reinvented itself in a way that deserves only applause. African Apparel, a British clothing company, has released a new YOLO shirt with Yoko Ono’s beloved visage gracing its front. YOLO Ono is one...

  First the good news: Lily Allen just released a new song that is most likely the most hard-hitting feminist anthem to come out since Helen Reddy's "I am woman, hear me roar."  Now the bad, bad, very bad news: In the video for the song, Lily is seen dancing, fully clothed,  among a gaggle of very thin, very underdressed twerking women of color.  See, the video starts out pretty okay. Lily is on the operating table getting fat sucked out of her body while a manager/producer/record exec...

Boobs have been big this year! No, wait, I mean it’s been a big year for boobs in pop culture. Some years, not much happens with famous racks—perhaps an ambitiously plunging dress or two, or the discovery of a new kind of cleavage, like “side-boob.” In other years, breasts are upstaged by vaginas. After all, they don’t enjoy the same urban-legend mystery that surrounds other so-called private parts.
