When I first read the headline for this, I honestly thought there was just a woman from Buffalo, NY who was just really, really proud of being pregnant. That she was selling off her positive pregnancy tests of a souvenir of her fertility.
But no, this is a serious financial venture. It’s weirdly brilliant and certainly…original, I suppose. I mean, I hope she’s making a fortune off of it, so that baby can grow up with a happy, normal life. ... Read More
German feminist group Femen strikes again with a boob-attack on Heidi Klum.
During the season finale of Germany’s Next Top Model, two topless protesters jumped on the stage with statements scribbled on their breasts. One message read, “Heidi Horror Picture Show.”
Klum’s reaction? “I’ve just seen boobies in front of me.” Gold.
This is hardly Femen’s first attack on conventional beauty standards and expectations. ... Read More
This week in stupidity, a completely male-dominated Fox newspanel discussed how it’s deeply problematic that four out of 10 (so less than half) households have a female primary breadwinner.
Apparently this set-up is “hurting our family.” It’s resulting in abortions and high school drop outs. And, my favorite quote courtesy of Erick Erickson, supporting female bread-winners is “anti-science” because of biology. Really? Maybe they ... Read More
Even if you’ve never watched Arrested Development, it’s safe to assume your Facebook feed has been appropriately cluttered with statuses about its new season. After cancellation and a hardcore seven year hiatus, fans have been anticipating the Bluths Netflix return. Now, in the dawn of Memorial day is seems that viewers are in an emotional hang-over.
Being from a proud family of marathoners, my brother and I watched the first three seasons within less ... Read More
I feel like comedian Amy Schumer must wake up to every horrible sexual experience with a smile on her sweet Jennifer-Lawrence-meets-adorable-chipmunk face and a resigned feeling of, “lol okay.”
Schumer’s Comedy Central show, Inside Amy Schumer, has been on for bit now and it’s been an expectedly wacky ride of sexual misadventures. Most admirable is how Schumer takes the pervy crudeness and hyper-sexual world usually reserved for frat boys ... Read More

Here’s something that sent a chill throughout the otherwise humid BUST office: actor Tim Curry suffered a major stroke and is now recovering in his LA home. Sad!
From Broadway to Hollywood and back again, Tim Curry has long been an acting legend. He’s had movie roles in everything from Clue to Muppet Treasure Island, not to mention he voiced the meme-worthy Nigel Thornberry in Nickelodeon’s Wild Thornberrys. Most significantly, however, was his ... Read More
Okay, to suggest that Brooklyn band Sharkmuffin has their sights on total world domination may be a stretch. However, their recently released EP, She-Gods of the Champagne Valley, IS the perfect summertime album for girls who dreamed of being Tura Santana when they were little. And whether they're dedicating a single to Pussy Riot, or playing at feminist art houses (hauses?) guitarist Tarra Thiessen and bassist Natalie Kirch have developed a sound that’s raw ... Read More
Barbie’s iconic pink mansion unfolded in Berlin yesterday, and a local feminist group took a stand against it's arrival. With a rally cry of “Pink Stinks," protesters marched to the dream house– functioning as a half museum, half endless "walk-in closet" - in numbers far exceeding that of regular attendees. Barbie herself was seen pinned to crucifix, and set on fire, burning her into a melting mess. Security guards promptly escorted protesters out of ... Read More
Get out your brooms and aprons, ladies. TV personality Pat Robertson has some truly old-fashioned advice on how to get over your husband’s infidelity, and a part of it requires good housekeeping.
In a recent episode of his show The 700 Club, Robertson’s advice to a female viewer distressed about her cheating husband was to let it go, because, “well, he’s a man.” He also suggests that she should look into why she married him in the ... Read More
Though it’s easy to get emotionally invested with fictional characters – Harry Potter World was built with the premise in mind – it’s the writers we need to thank for breathing life into each character. Sure enough, when the Buffy the Vampire Slayer staff was recently reassembled, they proved themselves to be as awesome as Buffy, Xander, Willow, Anya and Tara. But not Riley. Never Riley. Riley was the worst.
The staff includes the likes of ... Read More
