What do you call that? I call that selling out!
When I was little, since my mom was born in Japan, I was raised on Japanese stuff. I ate Japanese food, I took Japanese language classes, I played with Japanese toys
. I remember when I would play with my Hello Kitty doll all the time. Hello Kitty started in Japan as a simple Japanese kitty who wore a little dress and had little rodent friends. When I saw Hello Kitty, I saw a red bow, the occasional change of an outfit, sometimes she wore blue, but no matter what, I saw an adorable Japanese icon. Now, when I see Hello Kitty, I see stupid little "Bratz"-style hats, I see hideous overalls, I see stupid little quotes like attitude
, I see a bunch of glitter and halos, I see stuff like cherries and hearts where her bow should be, I see ugly jackets, I see America
in Hello Kitty. The original Hello kitty was supposed to be happy and sweet, not bratty and mainstream. Has our little Hello Kitty completely
sold out to the disgusting "culture" that is modern-day America?
Back in the day......
