Hello Punishement

Yasushi Ukigaya/Kyodo News, via Associated Press

A police officer in Bangkok shows a pink Hello Kitty armband.

In response to police officers violating petty laws, like littering or parking in a handicap zone, pink Hello Kitty arm bans are being tossed out as punishment. No doubt a novel form of humiliation, the arm bands are thought to make male officers feel stupid as the cute Sanrio kitty cat is more the provenance of young girls than big, burly "men" in uniform.

Not one to draw unfounded conclusions or anything, but doesn't it kinda seems like Bangkok city and government officials are...I don't know...um... sexist?
