Fat equals disgusting?

// 20 November 2007

I am fat. I always have been. And while I don’t promote the idea that it is good or healthy to be overweight, I have always felt that disproportionate emphasis is placed on the idea that success is something reserved for the thin and the beautiful.

I have had an article about this published today over on the Comment is Free website if anyone fancies a look, It seems to have been quite a controversial issue so far.

Have Your say
