Hello Kitty is as heavy as three apples
By The Feminist Feline on July 12, 2012
I stumbled across a Hello Kitty backpack in Target the other day and was stunned by what I saw.
Right next the picture of the beloved cat was a caption that read "I am as heavy as three apples."
Since when does anyone care how much Hello Kitty weighs?
Whether or not Sanrio meant to inform consumers of Hello Kitty's slim physique, this product teaches girls that it's okay to discuss weight with one another. I'm not trying to say that weight is a taboo topic, but one's weight is personal. When we start discussing it with our friends, we get competitive. It's inevitable. And it's this weight competition that perpetuates society's obsession with being skinny.
So do me a favor and join me in not buy any of Hello Kitty's "I'm as heavy as three apples" products. It's not good for girls. We already receive enough pressure from the media to be slim.
Why can't Hello Kitty be fat positive like these kitties?
