Kmart accused of enforcing gender stereotypes on kids

<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A customer has complained about Kmart’s range of children’s clothing, accusing the retail giant of “gender stereotyping”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">In a Facebook post, shopper Swagata said she was frustrated by the differences in Kmart’s range of kids t-shirts for boys versus girls.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">She claimed that the designs of girls tops included words such as “love”, “more love”, and “smile” while boys tops featured phrases like “adventure”, “wild woodlands”, and “alpine trails”.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Could you possibly be more gender stereotyping with your kids clothes?” the shopper wrote.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">She went on to suggest kids clothes should be gender neutral to give shoppers and kids a wider choice.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Thumbs down from this parent,” she said.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The complaint comes after a recent petition called on Kmart to stop separating children’s clothing into “boys” and “girls” sections and instead offer one range for all children, claiming the retailer was sending the “wrong” message to kids.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Many parents of young boys will tell you their son loves pink, rainbows and flowers but simply cannot wear clothes in these styles like girls do without taking them from the girls section, which sends a strong message that the things they like are ‘wrong’,” the petition read.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“Similarly, many parents of girls lament the lack of dinosaurs, trucks and non-frilly styles in the girls’ section.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But, the petition has received some backlash from parents.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“I don’t mind if they want to remove the ‘Boys’ and ‘Girls’ signage and just make a ‘Children’s’ section,” one commentor wrote.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“But please don’t mix the actual clothing items up so that we have to trawl through racks of ‘boys’ clothes to get to the ‘girls’ clothes we actually want, or vice versa.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">A Kmart spokesperson previously told 7NEWS.com.au that the store embraces inclusion and diversity.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“At Kmart, we are proud to offer customers a wide range of children’s clothing in lots of different styles and it’s certainly not our intention to stereotype children based on gender,” the spokesperson said.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">“The store layout reflects a majority of the way our Kmart customers shop and the difference between our boys and girls apparel range (in terms of fit) is marginal, so all customers have the opportunity to shop both areas for children.”</span></p>

Turia Pitt's revolutionary new venture

She tells us.</p> <p>"Use an eyelash curler and hold it for like 10 seconds, like make sure you really press down on it and even just doing that will really open up your lashes.

You're gonna be more likely to go and make the effort when you're doing it with people you know."</p>

The single act that shows why Ash Barty is a next level champion

5 signs of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease

<p><strong>Symptoms of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease</strong></p> <p>You’ve probably heard the terms “dementia” and “Alzheimer’s disease” used interchangeably. But, before you’re able to recognise the symptoms of early-onset Alzheimer’s, you need to be able to tell the difference between dementia vs. Alzheimer’s. Here’s a quick recap: Dementia is an overarching term for mental decline (including loss of memory, language skills and thinking abilities) that could be caused by many diseases and conditions, whereas Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia.</p> <p>Often, Alzheimer’s disease is thought to be a condition that affects the elderly, but it can also impact people under age 65, which is known as early-onset. According to Dementia Australia, about 28,300 people have early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in Australia and it tends to occur to people in their 40s and 50s. Keep in mind that this condition is relatively rare and makes up only 10% of all people with Alzheimer’s disease. That said, how can you tell if someone has simple forgetfulness or early-onset Alzheimer’s disease?</p> <p>We spoke with medical experts who reveal the tell-tale signs and when they’re a cause for concern.</p> <p><strong>You’re extremely forgetful</strong></p> <p>Memory loss is the most common symptom of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease (and late-onset as well). It’s typically one of the first signs that something is wrong. Symptoms of early-onset Alzheimer’s – which are similar to those that appear in other cases of the condition – usually start when people are in their 40s or 50s, but memory loss is also a normal part of ageing.</p> <p>“We don’t want to worry people that when they can’t remember a name or a word, that they’re on their way to Alzheimer’s,” says Dr Rudolph Tanzi, a professor of neurology at Harvard Medical School. “As we get older, our brain isn’t as good. Wear and tear, and inflammation, affect the brain much like it affects our joints.”</p> <p>Memory issues that reflect normal ageing include things like not being able to remember details of a conversation or event that took place a year ago, or not being able to remember the name of an acquaintance. But signs of a cognitive problem might be not being able to recall details of recent events or conversations, or not recognising or knowing the names of family members.</p> <p><strong>You’re misplacing things – all the time</strong></p> <p>Everyone misplaces things from time to time – phone, glasses, keys. The difference in people who might have early-onset Alzheimer’s or another cognitive problem is that these losses happen more frequently, and they’re unable to retrace their steps or think of where to look for the lost item. For example, if your car keys are in your other handbag, it’s probably no big deal. But if they turn up in the refrigerator, it could be cause for concern.</p> <p><strong>Repeating yourself</strong></p> <p>People with early-onset Alzheimer’s (or late-onset) may repeat statements and questions over and over, not realising that they’ve asked the same question before, according to the Alzheimer’s Association in the US. “The time to get worried,” says Dr Elise Caccappolo, director of the neuropsychology service and associate professor of neuropsychology at Columbia University Medical Center, “is when people repeat themselves within a very short time span.” An example would be if someone asks when a friend is coming to visit, gets told the answer, and then asks the same question a few minutes later without remembering that he or she had already inquired.</p> <p><strong>Your sleep habits change</strong></p> <p>Many people with Alzheimer’s have difficulty sleeping, waking up more often, and staying awake longer during the night. Changes in sleep that might indicate early-onset Alzheimer’s include daytime napping and/or feeling drowsy during the day but being unable to sleep at night.</p> <p><em>Written by Beth Weinhouse.

The truth about Princess Diana’s iconic hair

<p><span>Princess Diana has always been considered an icon in her own right – and this includes the royal’s hair.</span><br /><br /><span>However, a style choice that made history has actually been revealed by Diana’s personal hair stylist as a “split-second” decision.</span><br /><br /><span>Sam McKnight, who worked with Diana from 1990 right up until her death in 1997, told British Vogue that there was a moment that led to the iconic cut.</span><br /><br /><span>"This leggy blonde comes bouncing up the stairs, smiled and made us all melt, and it was Princess Diana," he said.</span></p> <blockquote style="background: #FFF;

This is what baby Tabitha from Bewitched looks like now

<p>It's been 49 years since Erin Murphy played Tabitha Stephens on the much-loved '60s sitcom, Bewitched.</p> <p>The now 56-year-old starred as the daughter of a twitchy-nosed witch between 1966 and 1972 and opened up about her iconic role as Tabitha.</p> <p>Erin and her fraternal twin sister Diane initially nabbed the role of Tabitha through a casting call for the series' third season.</p> <p>"They had previously shown it in black and white, so the big push of the third season was that the show was going to colour and that they were going to focus more on the character of Tabitha," the actress previously told<span> </span><a rel="noopener" href="http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/04/18/bewitched-star-erin-murphy-elizabeth-montgomery-had-dirty-sense-humor-and-so-do.html" target="_blank">Fox News</a>.</p> <p>"So they were looking for someone who looked like Elizabeth Montgomery [who played Tabitha's mum, Samantha Stephens] and wasn't afraid of the lights.

Erin loves that.</p> <p>"I think any moment that someone comes up to you just to say they liked you on a TV show, that's flattering," she said. "I think it's very kind and I'm very open to posing for pictures, meeting fans and answering questions about<span> </span><em>Bewitched</em>.</p> <p>"I'm thankful that people appreciate what I did.

Woman's warning after Botox treatment leaves her with "crazy eyes"

<p>A US woman has taken to social media to warn about the possible perils of Botox after she suffered an unusual side-effect from the procedure.</p> <p>Whitney Buha, who runs a lifestyle blog called Something Whitty, has documented the results after a botched Botox job made one of her eyes go droopy, making her look "two-faced."</p> <p>The correct name for the reaction is eyelid ptosis, where the upper eyelid droops over the eye.</p> <p>It's usually caused by ageing, an eye injury or as a result of eye surgery, but in Buha's case it happened because Botox was injected into the wrong part of her eyebrow.</p> <p>Taking to Instagram and TikTok, the 33-year-old from Chicago explained how it happened and to raise awareness of the potential side-effects of Botox.</p> <p>Buha went for a second treatment after she realised her right eyebrow hadn't "lifted" as well as her left.</p> <p>But unfortunately, round two did not go according to plans it made her eyelid droop significantly.</p> <p>After consulting with a plastic surgeon, she was told the left eye is overcompensating for the droopy right eye.</p> <p>“I look two-faced, it’s so embarrassing,” she said.</p> <p>“I can’t believe I’m showing this, like, are you kidding?”</p> <p>The plastic surgeon told her it was the worst case of eye droop she had ever seen.</p> <p>Now, Buha has to take special eye drops and do workouts so that her body metabolises the Botox more quickly.</p> <p>Despite the botched Botox job and her embarrassment over her “crazy eyes”, Buha said she wouldn’t stop getting injections, which she started at the age of 30.</p> <p>“You can judge me and say I’m crazy, but I’ve had Botox for three years, and I’ve never ever had a problem until this,” she said.</p>
