is hello kitty for me{n}?


Can "Hello Kitty" products be targeted to young men? The cute cuddly white cat, usually seen on toys and jewelry for young females, will soon don T-shirts, bags, watches and other products targeting young men. 

Gay Men should be progressive in the understanding the dynamics of masculinity and femininity. Why can't men rock the the "kitty"? 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. Are you ready to say "hello" to the new line?

umm maybe because "kitty" is synonymous with "pussy" ????

Now Shawn you know I have to embrace my asian side but besides the playboy bunny I don't rock no other critters. Personally I don't like hello kitty..kittie, or however its spelled cause I never really knew the story behind it...I mean what the fuck does it represent and why should I care?..

I wear my Timb boots and that has a tree...I wear Sean John cause I like how it fits in the fitting room (but Sean John shrink up like a muphuku after the first wash)....I wear Guess cause some of the shit is just sexy....but nope nope room for hello kitty

You gotta be a special breed to rock hello kitty...that would be like rocking betty boopers ass

I am still disturbed by this post! hahaha

If you were to buy a Hello Kitty t-shirt, the only thing you would be able to wear it with would be those damn BANG BANG jeans!

Think about it. Neither are a good fashion statement!

Maybe, if they removed the bow and had more "manly" looking products.

Ooooo instead of of using "Hello Kitty", they could create a new character for a male line...A dog perhaps? That would be HOTT!!

wassup shawn?! missed you and your amazing blog!
@ Rocafella 07: actually there is a complete line of these little characters under the Sanrio line and one of them includes a dog... I can't remember his name but there like a little dog, a little man, a little penguin, etc.. but hello kitty was the first and the most popular.

now as for wearing the clothes... hell yeah I euld wear the kitty.. I actually favorited the website so that when the line comes out, I can order the items... I could so see myself inlike a small fitted hello kitty shirt and some sksinny jeans and like a vest and some hot colorful tennis shoes with my rosary and some hot shades... what?!?! nobody would be able to tell me nuthin but "Hello Kitty!!"
