Make no mistake – women have made history. They’ve invented machines, cured diseases, discovered scientific phenomena, summited mountains, built landmarks, fought battles, championed causes, saved lives, won elections, and flown aircrafts. Female-identified folk have achieved so much – more than I can ever hope to list here – but most of those achievements have gone without proper recognition. Monuments to currency, postage stamps to national holidays, the faces, names, and legacies of women are woefully underrepresented, if not absent entirely. Read More
Google has taken a small step to help victims of revenge porn stop others from seeing their naked pictures on the Internet: On Friday, the company announced it will let victims of revenge porn ask for the removal of certain webpages from Google’s search results. The Internet can be an amazing tool. With it, we have the ability communicate with people around the world, conduct groundbreaking research, or just look at pictures of sheep for an hour straight like I did this morning. Read More
We know Monday mornings can be rough, so here’s a way to ease into the week. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sheep view.    Photographers Ding Ren and Mike Karabinos started this project because 2015 is the year of the sheep and just because they “enjoy the ‘sheep view’ when riding trains in the Netherlands.

Ask anybody (maybe not anybody) how much sex they’re having on the regs and you’ll get a range of answers—from, “all day, every day” to “3-4 times a week” to “I’m your mailperson, please don’t ask me that.” And all you can really do is trust their word; no statistic can be rubbed under their nose proving them lying sex-deprived losers.

  Long gone are the glory days of Myspace, where anyone with enough self-devotion and time could HTML their way to incredible levels of social cred and... So we were super psyched when Google announced in June that it would offer free coding lessons to women and minorities interested in learning the trade. But then we were super bummed when Google subsequently closed the application because, duh, so many people wanted to get involved. Read More
Sometimes I think Google knows me better than myself. Whether it’s from finding the address of my eye doctor (I always forget, don’t judge!) or looking up something delicious to eat, Google always has my back. #sorryBING I even take part in the interactive Google Doodle every now and then, but today’s Doodle really made me smile. Today, Celia Cruz, aka the “Queen of Salsa,” is featured on Google for what would have been her 88th birthday. The Doodle features gold Google lettering, and a smiling Cruz, donning peacock feathers with blue and grey hair. Read More
  Take a close look at these pictures Google developer Isabelle Olsson posted on her Google Plus feed late last month. Wicked cute, right? That’s Google Glass in action, my friends. Yep--the same thing that this guy is wearing. Could things finally be looking up for techies who aren't okay with looking like Urkel?!   Glass, Google’s latest technological endeavor, is a smartphone-esque platform worn around the face.

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 there?" "How do I turn this thing off?" "How do I hook up my iPod?" etc. 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 "slut," then you are a bad, bad, dirty website. Read More
It's easy to get down about the state of being female; every day it seems the world dreams up a new way to shame and oppress women. But for every "legitimate rape," war on choice, and violent reaction to empowered femininity, there's an amazing organization working tirelessly to support and honor women. Too often, these groups don't get the cred they deserve.Today we're giving some mad ups to Girls Write Now, a NYC-based non-profit that connects female high school students with professional women writers.
