Meanwhile, the third sported a cut-away vest top revealing the entire back of her pink bra, complete with chunky rolls of fat above, beneath and around the straps.
To top it all, these three were - I kid you not - sharing a bag of crisps.
That each and every one of them is dangerously striving for Keira Knightley's razor-sharp scapula and fried egg breasts or Victoria Beckham's hand-span thighs and knife-edge hips.
This is clearly a fallacy, and it's one that needs addressing, because not only are most fatties doing nothing substantial to reduce their size, the cost of obesity to the nation's health - not to mention the health budget - is enormous. I don't deny that anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders are a pernicious problem, and I've witnessed at close hand the devastating effects of anorexia as young daughters of friends and acquaintances have succumbed to it.
It’s important because we need to embrace people as they are, not as we wish them to be. As a writer, do you believe the literary world could and should be doing more to tell more diverse stories about bodies?

It makes you sound like all you care about is our bodies, that’s the most important part to you. So during a first conversation, again, you don’t have to qualify why you’re talking to her. You are more than welcome to have your preferences, but putting down other body types or other people’s preferences is NOT okay. Men who’ll talk the good talk but won’t be seen with us in public, men who’ll have sex with us but make fun of fat girls to their friends, men who think we’re ‘desperate’ and ‘easy’ and just a quick lay. If you don’t think there are guys out there who like fat girls, you are so wrong.
