We're doomed

AP:

TOKYO - Hello Kitty is no sexist.

The cute cuddly white cat from Japan's Sanrio Co., usually seen on toys and jewelry for girls and young women, will soon don T-shirts, bags, watches and other products targeting young men, company spokesman Kazuo Tohmatsu said Friday.

"We think Hello Kitty is accepted by young men as a design statement in fashion," he said.

The feline for-men products will go on sale in Japan next month, and will be sold soon in the U.S. and other Asian nations, according to Sanrio.

I guess I don't have to worry--no "Hello Kitty" nose hair clippers for me--but Oh, the humanity!

Second Amendment "Hello Kitty!"

Or, perhaps, a pencil case for Harry?

doomed?

gawd, i've been waiting for an opening to use that link. thanks, lb. heh. it's actually a pretty good channel, if you go for soft goth.

hello kitty is already widely popular with gay men, this is just smart marketing. metrosexual, despite hollywood pronouncements of passing fashion, is a viable and spreading category for many younger people. wearing a little pink and having a kitty pin on your shorts isn't even really 'brave' anymore for most younger men.

Wasn't he already aimed at guys? (Yes, I know there are already 10 DKos diaries on the topic. Please don't shoot me.)
