We get loads of press releases here at BUST— sometimes about things that are really relevant to us and our readers, and sometimes, well, sometimes not. And the press release we received yesterday was just wrong in a thousand million ways. So wrong, in fact, that just describing it wouldn't be enough. Instead, we wanted to share the entire release with you. Granted, sharing it with you is exactly what the publicist was hoping for, but somehow we don't think this release will have the intended effect.  Read on, if you dare. Read More
Getting antsy waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey? I kinda am. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait until 2014 (Jan 4, to be exact), until the series returns. Luckily for us, however, the geniusly talented artist Kim Parkhurst has created a series of paintings which portray each of the major players as animals. And damned if she hasn't nailed the right animal for each character. Read More

Recently, there’s been an all-out Twitter war between two of our favorite feminist women: Jezebel writer and comedian Lindy West, and BUST columnist and comedian Roseanne Barr.   The debate focuses on the subject of rape jokes—when it’s appropriate to tell them, and what the appropriate response to them should be.

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
The girls of the 1920s who called themselves “flappers” weren’t just about bobbed hair and short skirts. Instead, they were more like female revolutionaries who changed the world for women—forever. In 1922, Ellen Welles Page sat down and penned a letter for the weekly New York magazine Outlook. “If one judges by appearances,” she wrote, “I suppose I am a flapper. I am within the age limit. I wear bobbed hair, the badge of flapperhood. (And oh, what a comfort it is!) I powder my nose. I spend a large amount of time in automobiles. Read More
Oh, BBC America. I expected more from you. I mean, you're all British and everything, and as every dumb American knows, that means you're more sophisticated than we are. Especially when it comes to your TV shows (hello Downton Abbey).  But it looks like America may have rubbed off on the BBC in their new series for BBC America, Copper. "1865, New York. There are no city limits" reads the subway poster promoting the second season of this Gangs-of-NY style drama, while a whole bunch of men's faces stare me down. Oh wait, there are two women's faces there, too. 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
Appearing on the Danish TV talk show Blül Stih this weekend, conservative pundit Ann Coulter shocked the show's hosts by announcing, "I'm a feminist American."  Coulter, better known stateside for making such provocative statements as "All the pretty girls are Conservatives" and "I think Civil Rights are for blacks, not feminists," explained that a recent trip to Afghanistan led to her change of heart. "Seeing the way women in other parts of the world are treated really gave me pause. Read More
