    Although I'd probably have a lot of criticism of this book if I read it again now and I don't read much of BUST any because of this it's one of those cases of a book being there at the right time and the right place for me I read it '99 when it just came out I was 17 and had just moved to North America coming from a very catholic very anti woman place This was just at the time of my life when I was giving up fitting in and accepting standing out and this book was perfect for that

    This is a great reference book for people who like feminist theory with a side of fun fur Nothing wrong with that Still it's dated All the angsty rants seem kind of childish even though the issues they address are still very much relevant read this before you go on messsage boards and rant about stuff It's probably already said eually as whiny

    I always want to like Bust magazine than I actually do So I want to like this book than I actually do In fact I gave this book three stars but then thought about it and decided I really only like it two stars worth So I changed itI can't remember when or where I read this book But I vividly remember the essay by the young woman who decided just once to do some sex work but didn't get the money first I was about to write and got stiffed until I realized how that was going to sound Anyway she didn't get the money up front and ended up not getting the money at all I learned a valuable lesson from herAnd I think there was some unfunny parody of young Hollywood actresses that made mad fun of Minnie DriverThat's all I remember

    I first picked up Bust magazine at the Printer's Row book fair when I was twelve I believe I had the third issue of Bust and was mainly attracted to the bright pink cover with a curious intent as to what was inside Mainly text this bw magazine was so different than anything I had ever read I have subscribed to the magazine ever since a subscription that has lasted almost fifteen years This book contains short stories from the first five years of Bust My favorites include Girlfriend listen up and Don'ts for Boys

    Good but not great I am interested in political feminism that is inclusive of all women and recognizes the need for radical social change This is 'zine type rantings that aren't really going to change the world

  6. says:

    A story of mine from 1994 called Watching Him Fuck Her appears in this book

  7. says:

    Collection of essays and articles ranging from the editorial to the humorous to the practical to the erotic It's like a field guide to womanhood in the post feminist era

  8. says:

    I've had this book for years I don't know why I never got around to reading it until now but at least I finally managed to Because its age there is a lot about this that is uite outdated but it's still pretty fun Mostly There are some articles that are excellent some that are hard to get through and a huge majority that fall somewhere in the middle It was rather fun to see how different people define feminism and to see just how eclectic pro women people are I think one of my favorite take aways from the book were the insights into the history of women and feminism That was often eye opening for me and for that alone I am grateful that I read this It's not going to be a keeper but maybe someone else will benefit from it

  9. says:

    I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as the Bitch compilation It was less substantial and there was a lot attempt at empty shock value by some of the writers It probably works better as a periodic disposable magazine than as an attempt at essays with long term relevance I did really enjoy the introductory essays in each chapter by the editors one of which is still there and Lynn Peril writes for them these days so I'll probably still try the magazine It is also very dated but I was in my early to mid 20s when the stuff was written and I can still remember how I felt about all that at the time so it wasn't really a problem

  10. says:

    This compilation was absolutely fantastic It covers a variety of topics from beauty standards motherhood sex and believe me when I say no stone is left unturned It is so bold and honest and some of the stories I read were so unbelievably truthful and shocking to read in print There is definitely something in here for everyone and it was an excellent read My only issue was that some of the pop culture stuff was slightly dated but that's to be expected Other than that awesome read for budding feminists seasoned feminists or anyone who just wants to read something with the perfect amount of sincerity brazenness and sass Highly recommended
