    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 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.

    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    This is one of my favorite magazines. I've been reading it for around two years now. I'd say if you weren't inclined to liberalism, do it yourself projects (clothes and other things), feminism, or other somewhat "unique" interests in music, movies, and books this magazine isn't for you. You still might enjoy it, but I wouldn't suggest picking it up if any of those things listed don't interest or describe you.

    This magazine does have its faults though. They act sometimes as if those who don't share their views are either less intelligent or just plain odd. That's not extremely usual, but you do run across it every now and then. It's not as if they put down other view points, but they do make a quiet point in letting the reader know what point of view is probably "preferred."

    Still, it's a great magazine that brings something more to the table than just "how to get a man," "how to satisfy your man," or "Lindsay and Paris are the best!!" Also I love how women who are not incredibly mainstream are featured on its covers - and how the magazine targets different races and differet body shapes without making it a point to say that they are doing it to be nice to others (or to suddenly have these different images in an issue titled something like: 'Everyone is awesome! Girls should love themselves!'). They just do it because that's how women/girls are, which is greatly appreciated.

    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.
