In an effort to halt the "hypersexualization" of  young girls, the French upper house has voted to pass a proposal that would outlaw beauty contests for girls under 16, with penalties for breaking the law ranging from fines to jail time. The ban would put an end to events like France's Mini Miss contest, which, much like our own Toddler's and Tiaras, even has its own reality TV series.   (Although, from the images on the show's website, this ...

We get loads of press releases here at BUST— sometimes about things that are really relevant to us and our readers, and sometimes, well, sometimes not. And the press release we received yesterday was just wrong in a thousand million ways. So wrong, in fact, that just describing it wouldn't be enough. Instead, we wanted to share the entire release with you. Granted, sharing it with you is exactly what the publicist was hoping for, but somehow we don't think ... Read More
Getting antsy waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey? I kinda am. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait until 2014 (Jan 4, to be exact), until the series returns. Luckily for us, however, the geniusly talented artist Kim Parkhurst has created a series of paintings which portray each of the major players as animals. And damned if she hasn't nailed the right animal for each character.  Like Anna, above, as a greyhound? Perfect! Even better, though, ... Read More

  Hey ladies! Some  dude named Bryan Goldberg wants to ask you this: "Isn’t it time for a women’s publication that puts world news and politics alongside beauty tips? What about a site that takes an introspective look at the celebrity world, while also having a lot of fun covering it? How about a site that offers career advice and book reviews, while also reporting on fashion trends and popular memes?"Oh hey, Bryan, let me go one further: ... Read More
Recently, there’s been an all-out Twitter war between two of our favorite feminist women: Jezebel writer and comedian Lindy West, and BUST columnist and comedian Roseanne Barr.   The debate focuses on the subject of rape jokes—when it’s appropriate to tell them, and what the appropriate response to them should be.   The flames started after Lindy posted a story on Jezebel, called, “If Comedy Has No Lady Problem, Why Am I Getting ...

If you ever worked among technology geeks (or have been one yourself), you may have come across the following acronym, often given with an exasperated sigh: RTFM. It stands for "Read the Fucking Manual," and it's what a lot of people don't do when they get a new  TV/Stereo/Car/Computer/Vacuum. As a result, they rely on techy types/sons and daughters/strangers to answer every and all of their questions, such as "The vacuum bag is full. How do I get it out of ... Read More
The girls of the 1920s who called themselves “flappers” weren’t just about bobbed hair and short skirts. Instead, they were more like female revolutionaries who changed the world for women—forever. In 1922, Ellen Welles Page sat down and penned a letter for the weekly New York magazine Outlook. “If one judges by appearances,” she wrote, “I suppose I am a flapper. I am within the age limit. I wear bobbed hair, the ... Read More
Oh, BBC America. I expected more from you. I mean, you're all British and everything, and as every dumb American knows, that means you're more sophisticated than we are. Especially when it comes to your TV shows (hello Downton Abbey).  But it looks like America may have rubbed off on the BBC in their new series for BBC America, Copper. "1865, New York. There are no city limits" reads the subway poster promoting the second season of this Gangs-of-NY style ... Read More
 Look at the top of our site - to the right of our logo. Now back to me. Now look to the right, above the radio, and down, below the content. Now back to me. If you're on this page, then what you're seeing in those places is not an ad. Nope, in fact, you will not be seeing any Google Ads on this page, or on many of BUST.com's pages that link to this story, or mention this story. That's because, apparently, Google seems to think that if you are using the word ... Read More
