Hello Girl?

Actually! This is fairly new, its from last night! I’m Asian. Hello Kitty is in my blood. I took my senior pictures with Hello Kitty. I love Hello Kitty. Hello Kitty is my life. Ehhh, kinda of a bit of a stretch,  but I do want to go to Japan and visit Hello Kitty World. Its on my bucket list. So, when this popped up on my Facebook newsfeed last night. I learned that my life is a lie and I refuse to believe it.

Hello Kitty isn’t a cat at all, but rather a girl.

In the article this girl was putting together a Hello Kitty exhibit and when she verified with Sanrio, Hello Kitty’s company, they corrected her and said: “She is not a cat, but a girl.” Continuing with how she doesn’t do cat things, she doesn’t walk on all fours, she does everything as a human would, and she has a pet cat. It’d be weird for a cat to have a pet cat, Hello Kitty is a girl. That fact is very interesting, but I refuse to believe it. If you wanted someone to be a girl, why make them a cat? I’m okay with believing the lie that Hello Kitty is a cat, who only acts human. Just not a human girl.

  1. I read through the other news comment-like entries, Diane, and they
    all have a similar feel. Nicely personal. Summative. But for the news
    comment include comments on how this is news. I saw this HK
    revelation on a couple of sites, but didn’t think it merited notice.
    Explain why you think this is news. Is there info you’d like to know that
    isn’t included here?
