    Feminist electropunk artist JD Samson has been a favorite of ours here at BUST Magazine since she first appeared on our cover with her band Le Tigre in 2002. Since then, she has traveled the world both with that band and with her other band MEN, creating socially conscious anthems we can all dance to and proving to fans and skeptics alike that feminism can actually be fun. Her new band, Crickets—which she formed with her pals Michael O'Neill (MEN, Princess) and Roddy Bottum (Faith No More, Imperial Teen/Nastie Band)—has  released a series of singles and a multimedia collaborative art project leading up to the release of their self-titled debut full length which came out July 17 on Muddguts Records. It is weird and stripped down and moody and bouncy and perfect for your next socially distant dance party. In this episode of BUST’s Poptarts podcast, JD reveals how becoming a queer sex symbol made her grapple with her own “toxic masculinity,” she gets real about money, and we parse the power of her iconic stache.

    Taxidermy—it’s an art form that requires practitioners to be sculptors, biologists, and naturalists all at once. The blood-and-guts aspects of preserving animals for display have traditionally made taxidermy a male-dominated space. But women are making a mark in the field like never before. Helping us discuss the topic on this episode of BUST’s Poptarts podcast is documentary filmmaker Erin Derham, whose new film, Stuffed, takes a deep dive into the state of the art.

    A master of fierce, feminist wit, Janeane Garofalo has been a comedy mainstay since the 1990s and is still making waves today. You may know her from her 25 years doing politically savvy stand-up comedy. You may recognize her from her roles on iconic TV shows including The Ben Stiller Show, The Larry Sanders Show, and Saturday Night Live. Or you may be a fan of her performances in such films as The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Wet Hot American Summer, The Matchmaker, Reality Bites,andSweethearts. Through every role Garofalo chooses, she telegraphs some truth about women’s lives, and in this interview, we asked her about her friendship with Louis C.K. (this was shortly after his first return to the stage at the Comedy Cellar in December, before his recent set in which he mocked trans folks and school-shooting survivors) and our discussion got surprisingly heated. You don’t want to miss this chat!

    If you're a millennial of a certain age, it’s possible you’ve been lusting after Joseph Gordon-Levitt for basically your whole life. From grade-school sleepovers in the late ’90s (10 Things I Hate About You) to date nights in the aughts (500 Days of Summer) to Oscar prepping in the 2010s (Inception), he’s always been there, upstaging higher-profile heart throbs in every genre.

    So, it is with great pleasure that I report he is every bit as charming as you’d want him to be, even on a cross-countryphone call in the midst of a pandemic that has made small talk nearly impossible. “I know that I ramble sometimes,” the 39-year-old jokes, as he explains—with an understandable amount of incredulity in his voice—that Donald Trump has just tweeted about the same anti-protest law referenced in his new film,The Trial of the Chicago 7 (out in November), which takes place in...1969. “When you watch this movie, it doesn’t feel like you’re watching history,” he says. “It really feels like you’re watching what’s going on today.”

    Written and directed by Aaron Sorkin, Trial tells the true story of seven Chicago activists who were charged with conspiracy and inciting a riot after leading protests against the Vietnam War during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Gordon-Levitt plays Richard Schultz, one of the real-life prosecutors in the case. The stacked cast also includes Mark Rylance, Sacha Baron Cohen, Frank Langella, Yahya Abdul-MateenII, and Michael Keaton, among others. “It was fascinating and just invigorating, and such a deep honor to be around such talented and skilled artists,” says Gordon-Levitt, noting that the movie’s court room setting allowed for an unusual chance to watch each other’s performances. “It was an incredible moment as an actor.”

    JGL2 78b6b

    Pre-pandemic, Gordon-Levitt was also working on a new Apple+ comedy series about a California public-school teacher called Mr. Corman, in which he was playing the title character, writing, directing, and executive producing. “I was having a blast!” he says of the show, adding that the premiere is currently set for 2021. Then there’s Hit Record, his online community of artists around the world, and 7500, his airplane thriller that hit Amazon Prime over the summer.

    He’s been so busy, it’s not surprising that he has no idea what I’m talking about when I ask him if he was aware of the rampant Internet speculation that he was the Astronaut on Season Three of The Masked Singer. “My knowledge of popculture is somewhat limited,” he admits. “I am very aware of what’s happening on Shark Tank, though.” –Eliza Thompson

    If you were a feminist and a fan of hard rock in the 90s, you are probably still obsessed with Donita Sparks. Donita formed the band L7 in L.A .with her friend Suzi Gardner in 1985 and through various lineups, they toured the world with heavy, head-banging bravado for the next 16 years. During that time, they released five furious albums, including the amazing Bricks Are Heavy. And when the band broke up in 2001, punk girls everywhere shed bitter tears. But in 2014, Donita and Suzi, along with longtime bandmates Jennifer Finch and Dee Plakas, got the band back together and they are currently rocking out harder than ever. In this episode of BUST’s Poptarts podcast, Donita gets real about music biz sexism, who should be rocking for choice, and the “code of the road.”

Credited as the first punk rock store in America, Manic Panic sold cool vintage fashions, rock star gear Tish made herself, and wildly colored hair dye and cosmetics that the sisters started manufacturing and have been distributing all over the world for the last 41 years.

  • woman 1386090 1280 a673b

     

    21-year-old Parbati Bogati was found dead in a windowless “menstruation hut” in western Nepal, The New York Times and BBC.com report. Lal Bahadur Dhami, the deputy superintendent of the local police, said, “We suspect she died due to smoke inhalation and suffocation because she closed the door of the windowless hut and lit a fire on the floor for warmth during the night.”

    Abiding by an ancient Hindu tradition known as chhaupadi, Bogati isolated herself in an abandoned house. Chhaupadi, meaning someone who bears an impurity, considers women’s menstruation to be unclean and a bringer of bad luck. During their periods or after having just given birth, women are banned from touching people and certain foods as well as entering temples, using communal water sources or kitchen utensils, under this practice. They are then relegated to small structures made of mud or stone

    Many women say they observe chhaupadi because of social and religious pressures. Several cases of suffocation have been reported and a teenage girl died after being bitten by a snake. Reports of sexual assault are also common. Nepal’s Supreme Court banned chhaupadi in 2005 and in 2017 the practice was criminalized. Anyone who makes a woman observe chhaupadi faces a three month jail sentence and a $30 fine, the BBC reports.

    However, activists say police are not enforcing the law and the practice remains widespread in rural areas like Bogati’s. Last month, 35-year-old Ambra Bohara died, along with her 7- and 9-year-old sons, in an apparent suffocation from lighting a fire in the hut to keep warm from the harsh Himalayan winter. Nobody has been arrested for their deaths, The New York Times reports. The incident did propel locals to destroy chhaupadi huts around their village.

    Activists say that they plan to continue destroying the huts but are encountering a great deal of resistance, and lawmakers don’t see the current situation improving anytime soon. When a woman’s bodily autonomy has been so deeply entwined with her religion and its traditions for centuries, changing the current state of affairs seems like a Sisyphean effort. Abortion rights in the US are constantly under attack, with state laws favoring certain religious views over others. Religious moralism and women’s bodies have never been mutually exclusive. But we must keep striving to eliminate the correlation between a woman’s agency over her body and notions of ethics that stem from oppressive religious beliefs.

    In this year’s edition of tasteless Halloween costumes, we present to you Sexy Handmaid. Mashable reports that Yandy, an online lingerie and costume retailer, released the “Brave Red Maiden Costume” last week, with the description “An upsetting dystopian future has emerged where women no longer have a say. However, we say be bold and speak your mind in this exclusive Brave Red Maiden costume featuring a red mini dress, a matching cloak, with an attached hood, and a white bonnet headpiece.”

    Clearly inspired by the uniform worn by women forced into sexual submission in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the almost-$65 ensemble unsurprisingly received an onslaught of online criticism. In response to the backlash, Yandy removed the costume from their website and released the below statement.

    Screen Shot 2018 09 21 at 11.46.50 AM 95844Via Twitter/Yandy.com

    Fast Company writes that “the company was struck by the appearance of handmaidens at Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings and wanted to make it like that, but sexier.” The series, based on Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel, takes place in the totalitarian society of Gilead, where selected women are forced to engaged in ritualized rape with high-ranking men for the purpose of procreation, as most women are unable to have children.

    Since women’s reproductive rights are being called into question by powerful men in our current society, it’s difficult to comprehend how a sexualized version of a garment symbolizing a woman’s handmaid status, and therefore her government sanctioned abuse, could be seen as empowering. Similar sentiments echoed over Twitter. Molly Sanchez, a San Francisco based comedian and writer, tweeted, “Our society doesn’t take the rape of real women seriously, why should they take the rape of fictional women seriously?” Another user wrote, “Nothing like a sexy rape victim for Halloween fun huh.” This handmaid costume’s sexual overtones downplay a harmful misogynistic universe that, by law, allows and encourages the rape and denigration of women.

    Now, if only Yandy would remove their entire collection of appropriative costumes
