Whilst meandering through the second realm of reality, this tweet by @laureningram caught my eye: ‘Sexism starts young- #Kmart stocks costumes that show boys can be doctors and girls nurses!’ Australia is increasingly absorbing and exhibiting the culture brought to us by the great inventors of spray cheese.

Admittedly my piece this week could be deemed “so yesterday” (insert hair flick) but I feel there’s room for continued ranting.
