A Politico/ Morning Consult poll confirms what we were all assuming: America is already ready to turf out Donald Trump at the next election. The good news? “Generic Unnamed Democrat Candidate” is likely to beat Trump in 2020, if things continue down their current trajectory. The bad news? Elizabeth Warren is not. 43 percent of those polled said they would vote for the as-of-yet undetermined Democrat at the next election, while only 35 percent say they would vote to reelect Donald Trump. But when the question was changed...
After bragging and talking up their latest diversity issue, Vogue has once again proved they have no idea what diversity really is. In a spread titled “Spirited Away” (RED FLAG) supermodel Karlie Kloss was made up in yellowface, draped in stereotypical geisha garb, and photographed prancing alongside a sumo wrestler amidst scenery that is so stereotypically Japanese it hurts. The piece, shot by Mikael Jansson, was reportedly supposed to be “an homage to a 1966 Vogue shoot by Richard Avedon of German model Veruschka,” according to People magazine....
BUST’s February/March 2017 issue — aka The Revolution Issue — is on newsstands RIGHT NOW. We’re excited to share a sneak peek into our cover story, featuring Nadya from Pussy Riot. To see the full story, pick up BUST on newsstands near you (or subscribe!). On how she felt on November 8th, 2016: “The day after my birthday this year, I was waiting for my gift, which would be the first female president. I went to the gym and my trainer made my butt hurt so much...
"As the supply alluded to is to be levied upon all old maids, beyond a certain age, and intitled to certain yearly or other income; I make no doubt but both Houses of Parliament will speedily manifest their hearty concurrence thereto."  — The London Magazine, 1777. The 1777 edition of the London Magazine includes an interesting letter to the editor in which a gentleman — who signs himself as "A Friend to the Community" — has appended a proposed bill to levy a tax of "6d....
Unfortunately, we are not talking about Sigourney Weaver or the plot to Alien, despite wishing we were. We are referring to comments made by Representative Justin Humphrey of Lane who authored the controversial HB 1441. In Oklahoma this morning, lawmakers discussed the bill that would require women to provide written informed consent from the father when seeking an abortion. Perversely debated on the first V-day in this Trumpian dystopia, the bill would see women’s fundamental rights to autonomy over both their bodies and lives, decimated. It is...
In case you missed it, Donald Trump’s controversial national security advisor, Michael Flynn, resigned late Monday amid reports he had misrepresented the nature of his December conversations with the Russian ambassador. Flynn is a controversial figure, not only because he obfuscated details of phonecalls with Russia held while Obama was still in office. He and his son also stoked the flames of #Pizzagate, the insane conspiracy theory positing that Hillary Clinton and John Podesta ran an underground child sex ring in the back of D.C. pizza shop...
Upper management had requested last minute report changes, due the next day. I was crunching numbers on a calculator with my back to my cube’s entrance when I felt someone’s hands descend on my shoulders and start rubbing. “Go, Dena, go!” the senior manager urged me, laughing. I froze while his hands dipped lower. Greg (not his real name) had started at the company a few months ago, and from the beginning, his attentions had been marked. He always stopped at my cube to chat when walking...
Recently, I woke up to read about a woman who had been silenced at her place of work: on the Senate floor. Day and night, since November 8th, I’ve heard women’s unmitigated howling, fine and high and sounding everywhere — but men can’t hear it. Many men I love call themselves feminists. Many men whose politics I agree with do, too. Fine. But men, I want you to stop talking for a second. I want to see you put your money where your mouths are. Because...
Each day we’re bombarded with increasingly absurd and distressing news, making 2017 feel more like a Salvador Dali painting than another year in history. As understandable as it is to feel hopeless at times, we’re fortunate that there are ways we can speak out. Research shows a strong link between a legislator's understanding of their district and the citizens they have recently spoken to. In the past few weeks, we have seen phone calls change the minds of our representatives. One way to stay regularly engaged with...

Women all over the world are mad as hell — and that’s just one reason why BUST’s new “Revolution Issue” is one of our fastest-selling issues of all time. I think it’s fair to say that the results of our latest presidential election made the entire staff of BUST freak the fuck out. But we didn’t just grieve or get angry; we got to WORK! Immediately after it became clear that DT would become our new SCROTUS (So-Called Ruler of The United States), we reached out...
