Hello Kitty - The Man Behind the Cat

Sanrio is a Japanese company that's famous for its cute and adorable cartoon characters like Cinnamoroll and Keroppi - but Hello Kitty is the most popular and successful. She was created by designer Ikuko Shimizu in 1974, and named after one of Alice's cats in the book, Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll. Since British culture was popular with Japanese girls at the time of Hello Kitty's creation, she was made into an English cat!

I completely understand. I'm non-binary, meaning I identify as neither boy or girl. I'm more of a mix of the two, or somewhere in between. I'm not comfortable with identifying as a girl, but not completely identifying as a boy either. Idk, I'm rambling, it's pretty complicated. The point being, identity is a personal matter. If you honestly feel as if you should've been born a boy, maybe you're transgender. Or maybe you're transgender in the sense that you're a mix of the two, or neither at all. Find something that suits you. Don't worry about what other people say or how they perceive you. What matters is how you feel comfortable. Like looking at my profile right now you'd definitely think I'm a cisgender girl but no, that's not me. And it does not define me either. People calling you a boy does not define you either, unless that's what you want of it.
