Fat People and Literary Evil

I linked to this post on my culture blog, but it’s relevant here too: Fat People are not your literary go to for evil:

 Evil: its a complex negotiation of personal history, personality, upbringing, and societal and cultural expectations, not a physical attribute.

I think I was first made aware of the evil fat character in the work of Enid Blyton, which is basically an introduction to Fascism for kids. She was writing in the 1940s, but the evil fat character is still alive and kicking  (or rather, wheezing and sweating) in literature and pop culture.
