Supermarket giant Kmart sells same-sex family dolls


Australian retailer Kmart is selling an adorable family set of dolls for children, that allows to choose two parents of any gender for a doll (two moms, two dads or a mom and a dad). In an attempt to combat gender stereotyping, the supermarket giant dressed a boy doll in pink and a girl doll in blue. The inclusive doll set has already sold out at most Kmart stores in Sydney and several in Melbourne, according to the Star Observer, but is still available to order online. To prevent parents from discriminating between same- or mixed-sex parents, Kmart says that the sets will be shipped at random. The initiative is generally welcomed online, but there is an advice for future from the customers – they would like to see ethnically diverse doll families as well.
