is beyonce the new face of feminism?

Dunja Kay
5 comments

Since Beyonce’s appearance in a barely there photo shoot in GQ some days ago, the age old question has again emerged: is being “sexy” empowering or demeaning to women? Further complicating matters is the fact that Beyonce dared to express her thoughts on gender inequality alongside these pictures, stating to the interviewer: ‘Equality is a…

my boyfriend saved my goldfish! or, why feminists can still let people (even men) do things for them

One comment

I have never before given a shit about a fish. I grew up with goldfish after goldfish and even named some of them, but barely cared or even noticed when they died. I had somewhat more sentiment for my rabbits, but my reaction to their deaths was also pretty cavalier. The prospect of my dog…

love out loud: breaking up is hard to do

Dunja Kay
7 comments

Some of you may have noticed that things have been a little quiet around these parts of late. I’ve never felt that excuses make for particularly enthralling columns, but I’ve also long been a fan of disclosure. So – Julio and I broke up. It’s hard to be inspired to write about relationships when all…

interview: the dunes

If you love Mazzy Star (and let’s face it, why wouldn’t you?), then I can confidently say that you will likewise love The Dunes. The Adelaide dream pop duo are just about to launch their debut EP, Between Midnight and Dawn, and vocalist, Stacie Reeves, was kind enough to have a chat to lip about…

It’s not often I get star struck these days. As much as I’d like to pretend it’s because I’m very suave and rock ‘n’ roll myself, it’s simply that 15 minute phone interview slots (as are often allotted) are just not enough time to indulge fantasies that you’ll become best friends and/or be invited on…

love out loud: the only good thing about getting older (pretty much)

Dunja Kay
2 comments

I always thought I’d be fine with aging. It seems like a lot of girls inherit their mothers’ attitudes about beauty/aging/whatever, and my mum has incredibly pragmatic views about all those things. In fact, I’m not even convinced she has any views as such. ‘Hey Mum, are you freaked out about turning 50?’ ‘What? No….

love out loud: what if it doesn’t work out?

Dunja Kay
One comment

My best friend is in love with an American. Not one of those convenient ones with an Australian working holiday visa or permanent residency; one of the difficult ones that threatens to take her far away from me. Miranda met Steve while he was living in Australia. Naturally, she met him just before he left…

love out loud: should you “let” your friends date your ex?

Dunja Kay
2 comments

I was having a debate with some workmates a couple of months ago as to whether it’s okay to date people your friends have previously dated. I am firmly in the camp that, with some allowances made for individual circumstances, this shouldn’t be a problem. The biggest issue I would have with my friends wanting…

love out loud: how to break up with someone

Dunja Kay
No comments

I’m hardly an expert when it comes to ending relationships. It’s been a few years since I last did it and whenever I have, it’s been a pretty half-arsed effort anyway. But I’ve been around enough break-ups, both my own and others’, to know that it can be done well or it can be done…

love out loud: “summer finn” syndrome

Dunja Kay
No comments

(500) Days of Summer has become something of a go-to for background noise for me. I often don’t like silence, and have long since had a habit of answering emails and editing articles whilst watching TV, which culminates in my wanting to have some kind of chatter as I work away on my laptop. (500)…

love out loud: the lady doth protest unwanted advances in bars

Dunja Kay

As of yesterday, I have been “off the shelf” for 16 months. While I’ve never previously been in a relationship for this long, I have often found in the past that my skills (or whatever) with the opposite sex rather diminish while I am with-partner and I’ve been left feeling rather rusty when I’ve re-entered…
