Oh my grash, gals, I must be stuck in the dark ages. Sometimes I forget that they make an app for everything these days, but it never occurred to me that there are apps that would track your period. BUT THERE ARE. THERE TOTALLY ARE.  Truth be told, I'm on the pill, which is supposed to (keyword being "supposed") make it so I know exactly when I'll get it. And even when I wasn't on the pill, I was incredibly sloppy at tracking my period on my Bettie Page ... Read More
If I slammed my head against the desk every time I heard something idiotic happened this weekend, the BUST office would be covered with dents. At the anti-abortion law hearing at the Texas Senate Chamber this Friday, feminine hygiene products were confiscated, for fear that they would be "thrown at Senators." ... Yeah, that's right, guys. Tampons are a real issue in this country. How many people have to die from tampons before we need to pass tampon-banning ... Read More
I think I was 12 the first time I was called a slut. Maybe 14, because I recall having faded purple hair and wearing a Tripp miniskirt at the time, but young enough where the only thing I could do was go to a strip mall with friends, my mom’s cell phone in my pocket. And I remember standing at a street corner with my fellow baby-teens when a pair of guys pulled up to us, desperately trying to get our attention, before declaring that we were a bunch of ...

As we emerge out of the worst newsweekend ever, let’s take some time to quickly recap how justice is dead. The Marisa Alexander case is a good place to start, as both a counterpoint to the Trayvon Martin case, and as a stand alone example of why everything in the world is totally skewed. Alexander was defending herself in a confrontation with her estranged, abusive husband. In order to escape another “brutal beating,” Alexander allegedly fired ... Read More
Piper Chapman, three months shy of her incarceration in federal prison, lounges on the beach with her fiancé Larry, gabbing casually about her jailtime to-do list. “I’m going to read everything on my Amazon wishlist. And maybe even learn a craft, you know? I could be crafty.” Oh, girl. You know that the protagonist of Netflix's new original series, Orange is the New Black, is about to have a rude awakening.  And don’t ... Read More
There may be some mothers in the audience who can refute this, but to me, childbirth has always been filed under the "terrifying and awful" category of life experiences. And I'm not saying the actual "having a baby" thing isn't a joyous occasion, sitcoms have episodes based around that concept all the time. I'm just assuming that shooting a human being out of your vag can't be fun.  That's why I'm mildly horrified that women in Zimbabwe were getting fined for ... Read More
  Happy Furry Friday everyone! I’m surprised it took me this long to write my first cute baby animal post at BUST, but I’ve finally made it! And I’ve saved myself for something that is epic levels of precious, so brace yourselves: it’s a kitty in little knitted costumes. STOP, MY HEART! This poor little baby, named Wasabi-Chan, got attacked by a crow in early June, resulting in a split tongue, fractured jaw, and had to be fed via ... Read More
“Just because you regret a one night stand, doesn’t mean it wasn’t consensual." Wow. Go to hell. These are the posters that have been popping up around the University of Alberta Campus in Edmonton. A bullshit mimicry of Battered Women's Support Services "Don't Be That Guy" project. You may have seen the original brilliant campaign, which asserts that men should end their role in rape by not exploiting or taking advantage of someone ... Read More
In my world, wearing someone's flannels and ripped jeans is usually the before or after of getting laid. Standard fair, to be honest. I never had any of my love interests to do the same and commit to the whole 4-inch heels and ruffled mini-dress thing though. One of them put on my camisole as a joke, but nobody ever immerses themselves in the full Mary Grace experience.  Maybe for the best. With all this said, there are two things I'm certain of: I really, ... Read More
When I first peeked at JT’s new video on Youtube the first two comments for “Tunnel Vision” were “This porn has good music” followed by “It’s not porn, it’s art.”  Let me save you a little bit of time: it’s neither. What it is, in fact, is Justin Timberlake being totally gross and weird for waaaay too long, in ways I never thought was possible. It makes Dick-in-a-Box look dignified. Women crawling ... Read More
