First the good news: Lily Allen just released a new song that is most likely the most hard-hitting feminist anthem to come out since Helen Reddy's "I am woman, hear me roar."
Now the bad, bad, very bad news: In the video for the song, Lily is seen dancing, fully clothed, among a gaggle of very thin, very underdressed twerking women of color.
See, the video starts out pretty okay. Lily is on the operating table getting fat sucked out of her ... Read More

Recently, NYC subway stops and bus shelters have been plastered with the faces of little girls in all their smiling glory. Printed over the image of each girl is the headline "I'm a Girl" and then, smaller, "I'm Beautiful the Way I am."
In between those lines are listed the various ways that the girl is "beautiful": "I'm a leader, adventurous, outgoing, sporty, unique, smart and strong," for instance.
Are you feeling the warm-fuzzies ... Read More

Last year, when the farmer's market was looking sad with nothing but kale and onions and potatoes, I bought a sugar pumpkin, just 'cause it looked so cute. When I got it home I wasn't quite sure what I'd do with it. Unlike Jack-O-Lantern pumpkins, which really aren't the most delicious for cooking and eating, sugar pumpkins are much smaller, more round than squat, and they have flesh that is firmer, and less stringy and watery, than their larger sisters.
That ... Read More

In today's extremely-important-you-really-need-to-read-this feminist news, various sources are reporting that elephants and dogs have been recently seen frolicking together.
We first received the news this morning, when the Huffington Post uncovered the story that Bubbles and Bella, an elephant and a dog, are totes besties. As revealed in the video below, they do indeed seem to be quite attached to each other.

In an effort to halt the "hypersexualization" of young girls, the French upper house has voted to pass a proposal that would outlaw beauty contests for girls under 16, with penalties for breaking the law ranging from fines to jail time.
The ban would put an end to events like France's Mini Miss contest, which, much like our own Toddler's and Tiaras, even has its own reality TV series. (Although, from the images on the show's website, this ... Read More

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 ... 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. Like Anna, above, as a greyhound? Perfect!
Even better, though, ... Read More
