You'd prefer Bronies, perhaps?

Then it also doesn't have a gender, subby.

I liked the Felicia Day post...

And for Mr Concerned; those grown men are posting for the same reason most of us are. To be smartasses.

Hello Kitty has no mouth. Did anyone notice?

Well, she had to do something with that Anthropology degree. However, "unintentionally start a debate over a fictional character" probably was not the first thing that came to mind.

/Yes, TFA said she is an anthropologist, not state her degree

I just had a look around the official Hello Kitty Facebook page, where I knew fans would be congregating, and here's what I found:

1) The PARTICULARLY hardcore fans already know this. It's just the rest of us finding out.
2) If you are a sufficiently big fan, you don't give a shiat whether she's cat or girl or catgirl.

Not that this excuses Sanrio from creating a kitty who owns a kitty but is not actually a kitty. And also, British.

Enough to be sick of the references to her/it.

/Want to tell one of them "you're 33 years old, stop having Hello Kitty all over your damn bedroom!"

Now they can make perfectly normal magna about farking it without it being some weird inter-species thing.

See?

A few months ago I was on the train and this four foot tall Japanese lady got on.  She was in her late sixties or early seventies.  She was wearing a vinyl Hello Kitty miniskirt, a Hello Kitty backpack, and was holding a clear plastic Hello Kitty umbrella.

Why yes, I was riding the Portland MAX. Why do you ask?

She has somewhat of an excuse, being female and Japanese.

If she's four foot tall, she's shopping in the pre-teen girls' section for clothes.   It's Hello Kitty, Disney merch, or nothing.

She has no mouth, but she must scream.

In Pacifica's defense, she could be a woman. She did say grown men, after all.

So Hello Kitty is a person who dresses as a cat? Like a Furry or an Otherkin? Deep.
