Who's Ashamed of Hello Kitty?

Thai cops punished by Hello Kitty

Police chiefs in the Thai capital, Bangkok, have come up with a new way of punishing officers who break the rules - an eye-catching Hello Kitty armband.

In the interest of full disclosure I have to say that I'm a big fan of Hello Kitty: I have a Chococat wallet and some tiny hello kitty temporary tattoos. I find nothing shameful about it. I would proudly wear a Hello Kitty armband, although I think the hearts look pretty stupid. But why don't they just make them wear an armband that says "girl" on it, or pink underpants on their heads? Why is everything girl so shameful to men? I hope Hello Kitty retaliates and starts wearing a blue armband with a little Thai cop on it.

Really! This is so rude. Everything comes down to this. Hating women and anything remotely female.

Where can I purchase a Kitty armband. I'd wear it with pride.
