The online world has been a buzz with photographer, Petra Collins, and her menstrual blood-themed t-shirt. Collins designed the shirt, which is illustrated with a menstruating hairy vagina (vulva), especially for American Apparel. Commentary on the product has ranged from disgust to intrigue to even some who see it as pure feminist genius.
This shirt is cool because it leaves little to the imagination. I think it is a beautiful ... Read More

Amanda Seyfried rose to prominence as the girl who was blessed with ESPN boobs in Tina Fey’s brilliant Mean Girls.
She was just shy of 20 when the movie blew up, and now, almost a decade later, her career has all but followed the same progression.
Between her turn as flaxen-haired, honey-voiced Cosette in the critically acclaimed Les Miserables, and her upcoming role as porn star Linda Lovelace ... Read More

What would yours say? Comedian Ariella Scarcella, star of the Youtube channel Arielle Is Hamming, has answered the question with her latest video If Vaginas Could Talk. They'd complain about waxing, swamp ass, blood, and hot summer days. It gets a bit more graphic than that, but just watch it yourself and laugh your genitals off.

Sarah Silverman was on Conan O’Brien’s show last night, and of course she was vulgar, scandalous, and absolutely hilarious.

The best part was when Conan’s co-host, Andy Richter, ... Read More

Rather than being a sexy piece of fruit or a sexy nurse or a sexy table (or this year’s new low: the “sexy body bag”), make a statement this Halloween.
1. Pussy Riot: Get a couple of girlfriends together, put on some colorful ski masks, and run around causing trouble! This costume is cheap and easy to put together, would be easy to recognize, and is totally topical.

I wonder if (and highly doubt) Apple realized the irony of censoring the word “vagina” out of the title of Naomi Wolf’s new book, Vagina: A New Biography.
The point of the book is to educate people about the vagina, and therefore about women – striving for a greater understanding and respect. And the title was clearly chosen at least in part to provoke and to de-stigmatize the perfectly harmless word that ... Read More

I am often baffled when I am asked, “How is it that you can be a feminist and be interested in fashion?” To that I respond, “How can I not be one?”
Many people think of fashion as trivial. At times, I, too, become frustrated when I read magazines telling me how I NEED to dress if I want to be considered stylish--- I find that writing style too narrow. But still, fashion isn’t trivial at all.
Fashion isn’t ... Read More

The BUST blog has kept you abreast of many of the appalling attacks on reproductive rights in the United States, most recently through the story of the two Michigan state representatives who were banned from speaking on the House floor for using the words “vagina” and “vasectomy” in a debate over abortion-related legislation. In a rather awesome turn of events, Eve Ensler (AKA the woman who made it ‘cool’ ... Read More
