How come that Japan loves elves but no dwarves?
>Chinese historical texts recorded an ancient people residing in the Japanese archipelago (perhaps Kyūshū), named something like *ʼWâ or *ʼWər 倭. Carr (1992:9-10) surveys prevalent proposals for Wa's etymology ranging from feasible (transcribing Japanese first-person pronouns waga 我が "my; our" and ware 我 "I; oneself; thou") to shameful (writing Japanese Wa as 倭 implying "dwarf barbarians"), and summarizes interpretations for *ʼWâ "Japanese" into variations on two etymologies: "behaviorally 'submissive' or physically 'short'.
Japan are the dwarves, anon
It's gotta be the aesthetic culture of cute that Japan has got going on. Elves fit the aesthetic of prettyboys and idols and anime, dwarves do not.
Current typical depiction of a dwarf os a ahort, muscled beardy man, traits Japanese tend to associate with gays. Current typical elves, meanwhile, embody the current Japanese standards of beauty. Also, elves are easier to make cute (and still be easy to identify as elves) compared to dwarves, amd Japan loves its cute shit. So elves are favored over dwarves in Japan.
Meanwhile in the West, dwarves are seen as manly men that like to drink, make money, and have manly beards, whereas elves are seen as either faggy nature-loving hippies, or haughty assholes that fuck everything up that aslre also faggy. So dwarves are favored on the West over elves.
