It would have been nice (for me, at least) if the emergence of Tara as The Next Big Thing, no pun intended, had represented the first glorious fanfare to signal the ushering in a new age of worship of full-figured women - I refuse to use the word "fat" to describe her or any of my other various celebrity crushes (Nigella Lawson, Liza Tarbuck, TOWIE's Gemma, pop singer Adele and Lorraine Kelly, in case you were wondering) because it has a nasty, finger-pointing, pejorative air attached to it.

I have often felt anger at judgments made toward strippers or nude models or porn actresses. The people who argue that what "those" women do is wrong, but that what Sports Illustrated models or fashion magazine cover girls do is acceptable. Who is to say which does more harm?
