Hardcore BUSTie

Hey all you BUSTy chicas! Something came up at one of our meetings, and we were wondering what you think it means to be BUSTy.

The interns all agree that it is more of an essence--we know it when we see it--but we want to find a way to explain BUSTiness to those who aren't quite with it.

Give us your input! How do you define BUSTy? And what does it mean to be a BUSTy lady?

LL, welcome to the forum. It's nice to have a moderator who is making an effort to be a larger presence here. smile.gif

Yes, there's a difference between the Bust-Magazine-Busties and the Bust-Lounge-Busties. They overlap in many places, but I think the members of the Lounge are a more diverse population. You'll find the same teenagers & 20-somethings here as you'll find buying the mag, but you'll also find women in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s here. There are a few guys, too (I actually met my husband here on Bust). I'm in my 30s now and I still occasionally buy the mag, but not as often as I used to. Frankly, I was really turned off when they ran ads for cigarettes in Bust & I refused to buy the issues that featured tobacco advertising. This magazine is specifically targeted to young women - many of whom are too young to even purchase cigarettes - so it felt horribly inappropriate. I simply hold Bust to a higher standard than that.

Anyway.

Before the forum changed and oodles and oodles and oodles of posts got deleted, the "You Know You're a Bustie When ..." thread had some great examples of what it means to be a Bustie. There are still some good examples on there, just not as many as there used to be.

I've been on this forum since early 2001. When I joined I quickly felt welcomed. I had found a place where I could see that I really wasn't alone and that there are more people out there who think the way I do than I realized. It's just a huge repository of kindred spirits. We are all so very different, but there is a love and respect here that I havent encountered on any other forum. Being a Bustie has made me feel far more comfortable identifying myself as a feminist ... and teaching people that, whether they realized it before or not, they are also feminists. I love that I can come here and talk about relationship problems or the latest recipe I served at a dinner party. I can vent my frustrations over the racism in my community and I can also talk about what happened on the latest episode of Project Runway. It's a hodge podge of what it means to be a woman in the western world today, but it's warm and welcoming enough that a number of men call this place home, too.

In short, I think of Busties as people who just get it ... but I'm not quite sure how to define what "it" is!
