JKR has no right to talk about the glorification of unhealthily underweight women in some sections of the media, because there's a fat boy in her books.
There have been several variants of this story, all of which were written by people who had either never read past chapter two of 'Philosopher's Stone', or chose simply to ignore what the rest of us fondly term 'facts'. I thought of listing all the many characters in the Harry Potter books who are on the plumper side, to demonstrate what a very diverse group of personalities they are, how they include several of my most important, admirable and lovable characters, and how 'overweight' in no way equates to 'bad' in my fictional world... but Andy from Mugglenet has done it for me. See http://www.mugglenet.com/infosection/op ... tfem.shtml. Andy, I really owe you, because I've used the time you saved me to type up half a chapter instead!
