putting on a fat suit does not fat make you, grasshopper

On reading this revoltingly offensive article by Dodo Boopsey Rachel Cooke from the Observer this week (I know, my fault for reading it), I was moved to write a repudiation. What was her article called again? Oh yes, "Is weight the new race?". Frankly, no. Racism is racism, Body fascism body fascism. But I won't get started on how annoying the article (which contains everything from a size 10/12 woman putting on a fatsuit to "experience fat" (gah!) to badmouthing the marvellous charlottecooper) is or we'll never get started on my life as a fat chickCollapse )

Anyone fancy proofing it or suggesting corrections?
