Stereotypes hurt society, but thanks to classroom visits from "myth-busting" shows like Lore Blasters and Debunk'd, many of these generalizations have been dispelled—but not all. The next time you generalize about "cat ladies," consider the following facts about these female friends to felines:
Cat ladies have dozens of cats: False. In its December 2004 issue, Dictionary Magazine defined cat lady as "any human female in possession of [just] two or more cats." When you were busy mocking cat ladies, how many of them did you unknowingly see in the workplace, in your own home, or in the mirror?
Cat ladies are lonely and unloved: False. Although some choose to devote all of their affection to their pets, many cat ladies eventually pair up with their perfect opposite, and therefore most logical mate, wolf men.
Cat ladies are filthy hoarders: False. Many cat ladies keep immaculate homes in order to provide safe living conditions for their pets. For instance, do you know what else has a lot of living creatures moving through it and plenty of stacks of newspapers? The answer is "airports" which are, if anything, uncomfortably clean.
