I'm a huge hater on abstinence-based sex ed.  I've never been able to fathom why omitting vital, straightforward information about reproduction from young women & men is supposed to be in any way helpful.  Opponents of sex ed make it seem like teaching these lesson plans is as steamy as one of my Grandma Jeanne's "bosom heaver" romance novels (with Fabio airbrushed on the cover no less).  It's all kinds of messed up to lie to kids, then expect ...

Craftacular countdown: Just 4 days now! And in anticipation of the big day I’d like to introduce you to the House of Ismay! The crafty lady behind the House is Ms. Sarah Pounder, who works out of the spare room of her house in a village in Suffolk. After studying Book Arts at university, Pounder found herself in an unrelated job, so she started selling her homemade wares at the markets on Brick Lane as something creative to do. Luckily she has been able to ... Read More
Goodwood, a New York-based jewelery and trinket line, features classic hip-hop style pendants (as well as whimsical pieces like this dapper little fellow) carved out of the decidedly non-bling medium of wood. Worn by such luminaries as Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Kanye's main squeeze (or are they broken up?) Amber Rose, and rising star Justin Bieber, these pieces could also make a great gift for a BFF/Secret Santa/lover. Stop by Coat of Arms on Black Friday for the ... Read More
  Ahhh…Thanksgiving, the first link on the proverbial winter holiday chain of events.  A time when biological families and selective families gather round to indulge in gluttony in it's most jovial form, and scroll down the list of people, places and things they are so grateful for.  Personally, my turkey day traditions have gotten a little stale over the years. Seeing the same spread of green beans, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce ... Read More
  As far as I’m concerned, there is little to nothing not worth analyzing when it comes to pop culture. All our trends, fads, and institutions are reflective of what we value as a society, and one of society’s major indicators is….models! Let us briefly explore the models of the 90’s, who would, most likely, never in a million years be models today, as their looks are currently “out.”Despite an intense love and obsession ... Read More
Are you counting down the days until BUST’s London Craftacular on Sunday? Because there are only 5 days left! And when the big day comes be sure to stop by Alice Gabb’s table, where her beautifully illustrated stationary and other handmade items, will be on display for the hip crafting community. Gabb, an illustrator, lives and works in Hackney. She just graduated from the Bath School of Art with a degree in Graphic Design, where she did work based on ... Read More
Since she was 17, Beyoncé has shown us how talented, beautiful, and sexy she is. She is the woman who unapologetically tells men that she's too bootylicious for them and that if they liked it, well, then they should have put a ring on it. Hit after hit, jackpot upon jackpot, she seamlessly embodies confidence, creativity, and power. With sixteen Grammy awards and two Golden Globe nominations under her belt, it's no small wonder that Forbes and Time magazine ... Read More

Celeb Haterade

BY Emilie Branch in Feminism

Female celebrity musicians generally look as though they get along, but last night there was a rift. They seemed to sense a threat. Rhianna, Katy Perry, and Ke$ha all reportedly acted like they were friends with rap artist Nicki Minaj, and then started taunting her. Each groped her butt and then laughed about how fake it was. This was Nicki’s first time at the American Music Awards, and I doubt she expected such a two-faced welcome from her fellow female ... Read More
Lena Dunham's film Tiny Furniture (written and directed by and starring Dunham, 24) is out now and has been met with excellent reviews. The movie is currently playing only in New York, but you can catch a number of Dunham's hilarious short films on her website http://www.lenadunham.com. Check out "The Hostess With The Leastest," which is described as what happens when a jerk tries to make a souffle. And watch my personal favorite, "Hooker on Campus," in ... Read More
"The title Public Speaking means that I endorse that I speak publicly," Fran Lebowitz says in the sneak peek of Martin Scorsese's doc about her career, "it's not a general directive… For a general directive, I really advise public listening." I think Fran's on to something. Check out the trailer and her interview with Joy Behar after the jump, and be sure to check out the premiere of Public Speaking, tonight on HBO at 10 PM EST. {source} <object ... Read More
