Jessica Barlow
No comments

Name: Stephen Benko-Nehme Age:    31 Occupation: Library / AV Technician How would you describe yourself and your life? I’m a Western Caucasian male nearing middle age, living in middle-class suburbia. Why are these specific details important?

don’t call me crazy: masculin(san)ity

I am happy to admit that it can’t be easy being a girl. Menstrual systems and hormones – gosh that must suck. What do we get? Boners. I’ll take the boner. To state the obvious, the feminist revolution has done amazing thing for women’s image and identity. And things can only get better. There is…

Hey, baby, what’s your name? You’re looking fine. Show us your tits. Look at those legs. Look at that arse. Its ok, honey, there’s more of you to love. Street harassment.

(sex)uality: performance anxiety

Dunja Kay
One comment

You know the feeling. They look your way; maybe they wink or smile. Maybe they’re on the other end of the bar, or across the table from you at dinner, or cuddling you on a couch. You bite your lip, knowing that you’re thinking the same thing. Your muscles relax slightly, in anticipation of the…

(sex)uality: what no man wants to hear

Dunja Kay
No comments

Without wanting to get Lily Allen on you all and divulge details of not only my own sex life, but also that of the men I’ve, ahem, ‘known’, I feel it’s time to right some wrongs often proliferated by both the media and feminists (which, to be fair, are both groups I technically belong to)….

competition – something to prove?

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

Last night was my best friend’s hen’s night and her groom’s buck’s night. They decided to combine the two. It was held on a weeknight for people flying in from another country and, as most of us had time off for the wedding or work or study, we were okay with it being held on…

love out loud: partner in cross-sex friendship

Dunja Kay
No comments

When Jack White and Karen Elson announced their separation a few weeks ago, they likewise announced that they would hold a party to celebrate the relationship (which I guess isn’t that dissimilar to people celebrating a life rather than mourning the end of one at a funeral, but anyway). Having a party under these circumstances…

I recently attended the first meeting of the South Australian Feminist Collective, formed after Adelaide’s ‘Slutwalk’ took place. Just under twenty-five people attended, with four of this number being men (and I say this in the strictly biological sense of the word, as one of the men identified as gender-neutral). Being the first gathering of…

my father and male body image

Sonya Krzywoszyja
No comments

My father told me about an incident at his work recently that left me bemused. He works in a very blue collar, male dominated work place. He was in the lunch room on his tea break, and stumbled across a conversation regarding weight. The men sitting at the lunch room table were trading diet tips….

Australia Day – What’s It All About?

Ophelia
2 comments

Flags stuck on cars. Thongs, board shorts and Bonds tank tops in festive designs. Beer-swilling. Barbecues. Fireworks and days spent on the beach. These are the images of Australia – that is, these are the images of our country presented on our national day, Australia Day. Every year, we celebrate our national values of mateship,…
