Leave it to Vice to write about a maid café with chubby waitresses. Of course Japanese fat is kind of like an American size 8 so take that as you will. I’m more caught up with the name of the establishment being Pomeranian. I would expect something less cute and fluffy and more roly-poly like Shar Pei.
I still can’t decide if this is a subversive act given the strict homogenous culture or if I should be bothered that it’s just another way to play submissive and cater to males’ fetishes.
The upside of being chubby:
“The best thing is when you eat. People often say, ‘Wow, what you’re eating looks really tasty,’ or ‘You really know how to enjoy yourself.’ Hearing things like that makes me feel like people accept and like me, and it also means I get to eat loads. Meals are fun!”
I'll give her that. Meals are fun.
