Your Takes — Chubbiness

Chubbiness is a new idol group in Japan that features a troupe of plus-sized girls. They promote a healthy lifestyle without the pressures of unrealistic body images. What do you have to say? (Story via Crunchyroll)


None of these girls come even close to chubby by western standards. As a connoisseur of big beautiful women I am deeply offended by this half-assed attempt to pander to me.



I don’t get why it’s good to insert more body types into the cycle of female form objectification.



I look forward to their cover of the Big Mac jingle.
