Fat and happy: No one tells author Lindy West what to do

Lindy West is a defender of bodies: women's bodies, fat bodies, every body's right to exist in whatever way, shape or form, unjudged and unassailed. "Everyone has a body," she says. "We haven't developed brain-in-jar technology yet." Her writing puts forth the unfortunately radical proposition that each person's body is that person's own business.
