Here at BUST HQ, we’ve been chatting a lot about actor Elisabeth Moss lately. First, we jubilantly extolled the many feminist virtues of her new Hulu series, The Handmaid’s Tale, on this week’s episode of our Poptarts podcast. But we were subsequently startled and dismayed when we heard about the show’s panel discussion at the Tribeca Film Fest, in which Moss seemed to cavalierly dismiss the show’s feminist thesis despite the fact that at its core, The Handmaid’s Tale is a cautionary fable about what happens...

The crowds of C2E2 were roaming the floor dressed as some of their favorite superheroes, meanwhile, I was upstairs at a press conference with some real-life superheroes who just happen to be the biggest names in lucha. If you are unfamiliar with lucha, lucha is a form of wrestling that brings in all the theatrics of WWE with a dash of Latino culture, and El Rey Network’s Lucha Underground is king of lucha TV. Launched by Robert Rodriguez and producer Mark Burnett in 2014, Lucha...

Margaret Atwood’s speculative fiction novel The Handmaid’s Tale was first published in 1985. It tells the story of a near-future dystopia called Gilead, where people live according to strict gender roles. Women are divided into three main groups: Wives (wealthy, infertile women married to wealthy men), Marthas (servants), and Handmaids — who, like in the Biblical story of Rachel and Leah, bear children for the Wives. (There are other women's roles, including Aunts, Econowives, and Jezebels, but most women are Wives, Marthas, or Handmaids.) I first...

  So...this is disappointing. At a Tribeca Film Fest panel for the upcoming Hulu miniseries adaptation of the Handmaid's Tale, cast members were quick to insist that there's nothing particularly feminist about Margaret Atwood's novel about a dystopian near-future where an all-male ruling class has complete control over women's lives, bodies, and reproduction. Um, what? MTV's Rachel Handler brought attention to the panel when she shared her quotes and disappointment on Twitter, writing, in a series of tweets, "bizarre Handmaid's Tale panel at Tribeca. Cast stressing over and...

Yesterday, Bill O'Reilly was let go from Fox News (about damn time), after yet another woman came forward with sexual harassment accusations against him. To celebrate the occasion, Stephen Colbert brought back his Colbert Report persona -- Conservative Pundit Stephen Colbert -- in order to give O'Reilly a proper, tearful goodbye. "We all saw this coming at us like an old man cornering an intern in the breakroom," Colbert said. Colbert addressed the most recent harassment accusation against O'Reilly that was made by a female African American Fox...

On the latest season of Survivor: Game Changers, veteran contestant Zeke Smith was outed as transgender by another contestant. The malicious reveal backfired, as the other castaways came together to collectively support him. After the shocking news was revealed to millions of dedicated Survivor viewers, it was reported on by dozens of publications (i.e. CNN, New York Times, Slate, People magazine, and others). After tabloids forcibly outed director Lilly Wachowski last spring and harassed Caitlyn Jenner prior to her coming out in 2015, it has become...
