SO MUCH PINK: First Barbie Cafe Opens In Taiwan

barbie-cafe-1.jpg

Because Hello Kitty has already run her course, Taiwan just opened the very first Barbie Cafe in Taipei. Now I know what you're thinking, and no, it's not a bootleg -- Mattel actually licensed the restaurant. "I'm shocked." No, you're just kind of racist. Now let's hear what a feminist thinks about it!

Rhiannon Williams, editor of feminist website The Vagenda Magazine, commented on the café: "I cannot imagine anything less pleasant and more nausea-inducing than a Barbie themed restaurant. Not only because I prefer low-impact environments and none of the major food groups are pink for a reason, but also because Barbie is an outdated model of stereotypical femininity and needs to die a death."

Whoa -- strong words, Rhiannon! Of course it's more than a little hard to take you seriously considering you just said a Barbie themed restaurant is the most unpleasant and nausea-inducing thing you can imagine. By a show of hands -- who here can think of something way more unpleasant and nausea-inducing than a Barbie restaurant? You see that, Rhiannon? Everyone. Next time don't be so dramatic and maybe we can burn some bras together.

Hit the jump for a ton more shots, including some of the food.

    Yeah Rihannarhino, because being a feminist means believing girls are allowed to like whatever they wish, as long as it doesn't conform to the traditional image of a girl, those things need to die a death(?)

    Maybe a false positive, but to be honest the utter shitfest that is Twitter isn't worth taking the risk for.
