4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, very liberal, not academic August 3, 2005
By Ms. WB
Subscription Term Name:1 year
About every four months or so I pick up an issue of Bust. It's not something I'd like to read on a regular basis, as I find any pop culture commentary to be a bit preachy, but this is a fun magazine with a sense of humor (Praise be!). Every issue features an interesting interview: Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey, etc. Nothing is overly examined; if you want a really thought provoking magazine, I'd subscribe to Ms., but I like Bust's writing because it is accessable and less angry and frustrated than Bitch--a comparable magazine. It also has a terrific column by writer Ayun Halliday (No Touch Monkey and East Village Inky), which usually cracks me up. In addition, you can usually find liberal join-up type articles as well as personal essays. Babes in Toyland is one of Bust's larger sponsors, so there are lots of articles on pleasuring yourself, vibrators, and getting in touch with your inner-inner woman. I think in terms of tone that Bust lies somewhere between Jane and Budget Living (sounds crazy, but it's true), with the obvious feminist bent. I really appreciate that it's not anti-male, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feminist Lite & Fun Fashion September 29, 2006
By Avery
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm really upset at all the negative reviews of BUST here. Bust magazine isn't claiming itself to be your feminist go-to source, it's a magazine for girls who like magazines. Personally, I love bust because I can look at fashion and trends & new designers without being bombarded by articles like "HOW TO MAKE HIM GROAN". If i wanted intense feminist essays I'd go read bitch magazine, but if you just want a fun magazine with cool fashion & a girl positive vibe, BUST is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted & fun feminist mag April 9, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Bust is an entertaining, highly readable magazine aimed at 20- and 30-something women who unashamedly self-identify as feminists. It reflects a heavy influence of NYC/Brooklyn and the indie scene. The journalism is not terribly political or hard-hitting, but I don't think it intends to be. Bust does occasionally discuss things like comprehensive sex ed, breastfeeding in public, and misogynistic commercial ads; however, for the most part, the content is on the lighthearted side. I have subscribed for almost a year, although I've read it intermittently off newsstands since 2005, and overall, I really enjoy reading it.

The great thing about Bust is that it has substance and is fun to read. There are never articles like "How to Look Thinner," "Choose the Right Anti-Aging Surgical Procedure," and other inane, self-hate-inducing garbage typically found in mainstream women's mags. By contrast, Bust has articles on female stand-up comedians, women who travel the world volunteering, and how to choose the right vibrator or electric guitar. (These are also great examples of how Bust has a more lighthearted tone than Ms. or [...].) [MM edit: Thanks a lot, Amazon, for editing out the word B**ch right there -- it's the name of a feminist magazine, not a derogatory term. Just shows you how far we still have to come.]

Bust's regular features include:

* Feminist interest columns -- Pop Tart, a tongue-in-cheek take on current pop culture; Museum of Femoribilia, with articles on women's cultural objects (swimsuit bra cups, restrictive petticoats, girls' toys, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best for the younger feminist generations June 15, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I have been reading Bust magazine for close to five years now.
I have to say that all of the wonderful things that I love about being a woman are talked about in this magazine. And it isn't just for women, with music and book reviews, the magazine is for almost anyone who has a pulse. The main reason it is for women is that it says everything that our mothers wouldn't say but taught us that we should feel allowed to say.
This magazine is a must for any female who has no problem with calling herself the f-word: feminist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, Fun, and Female June 12, 2003
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Picked up this magazine before a plane trip and read it cover to cover. Edgier than Jane with a more approachable fashion sense. How many magazines feature a sex issue with Beck on the cover? How about a great cover interview with Frances McDormand?
This magazine has great interviews funky craft tips, a monthly mechanic's column, and really great back of the magazine ads. Highly recommended. The accompanying website could be better but check it out anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ms., this is not! December 11, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm not going to say that Bust isn't a decent magazine. And if other feminist publications weren't around, I'd probably be reading it cover to cover. The problem is that they seem to assume that everyone who reads their mag is all do-it-yourself-y and artsy. And that they're actually interested in clothing. I'm not. I still appreciate some of the articles -- for example, the article several months ago on the womanly diagnosis of "hysteria" and this latest issue's article about American women converting to Islam.

If you're a knitter, cool. If you're a sorta-kinda feminist, cool. If you just want to read something that isn't telling you to go out and find a husband, like, yesterday, this is a good mag too. But if you're looking for something that is a little more FEMINIST, pick up Bitch magazine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too political
Articles are sometimes boring. I see there is a lot of activism, but it would be nice if some articles were a little more fun and exiciting for women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Nylon
Bust focuses on better content than better ads. They choose to feature music that is not so indie it's not accessible or hype generated to be an ad content posing as an article. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars Almost useless
The few things I actually liked in this magazine did not warrant the expense. I would not purchase again. There are many blogs that cover the same topics in a much better way.
