Neko boys are, well, just as important as the neko girls!
However, it can be hard to find other kitten boys around or feel a sense of belonging, being a boy in a female majority community. Nonetheless boys - remember - you do belong! And welcome to our little family!
1. My first tip for Neko boys would be to try and find another neko boy.
Having that one other neko that is the same situation can keep you grounded at times and remind you that you do belong.
To find other kittens who are male, you can search on social medias thru the tags #nekoboy, and theres also a few neko boys who are active on the Neko Palace community forum (www.np-forum.net) so I'd defiantly recommend checking that out.
2. Don't feel like you have to act a certain way.
There is a typical way neko boys are expected to present themselves in the community, but you can do this your way, and there will be people out there that will support you for being your way.
If you like pastel colours - go for it! Rep pastel colours! If you like more darker colours - you can rep them too!
3. Don't be intimidated.
You deserve to be in these kitten spaces as much as any one else, wiggle your way into the space and feel comfortable there.
4. Do what you want to see from the community.
Rather than sit back and complain about the lack of male kitten YouTubers - go out and be that YouTuber! Be the change you want to see in the community. Set an example. Want a tag specifically for neko boys to use? Make one! Ask your friends to spread the word. The neko boy world is very minimal and most are scared to show them self on the internet, so try your best to help make it normalised.
5. Have fun!
Being a kitten is all about having fun and getting into your kittenspace and relaxing and escaping that awful adulty human world, even if its just for a short while. Try your best not to take it too seriously and just have fun with it.
