You and I don’t always see eye to eye but I do think you’re onto something in this piece.

I would gently nudge you to think about why, after saying things about how being fat or being attracted to fat people is a culturally shunned thing but that’s ridiculous, you felt the need to clarify that you weren’t fat. Not to demonstrate, like, bias (“I have a thin/average body and the privileges that come with that, this is my experience despite that”) but… well, it comes across more like you’re reassuring the reader that it’s ok, you’re not fat, you got over feeling fat, phew. As a fat feminist, it gives me pause.
