Oh how I am angry this morning, and yes, I completely understand that by writing about Taking Shape and their #SkinnybirdWatching I am actually giving them the attention they obviously crave and desire, like a toddler smearing faeces on the wall for attention.
Well I'm sorry, Taking Shape but I am putting you on the naughty step, this is a time out. I think you should go and sit down and truly think about what you have done.
When Taking Shape came on the scene I was pleased that there was another plus-sized company out there championing women and heralding that you can be plus-sized and wear fabulous clothes,
BUT WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TODAY IS JUST BULLYING.
I do not want anyone to think that the way to make someone feel good about themselves is to tear down someone else, calling people skinny and saying that they are not the norm is just as bad as someone setting up a FatbirdWatching hashtag and tearing down plus size women.
PS, WOMEN NOT Birds, but let's not even start me on that one.
Dear Taking Shape UK, you are in the wrong here, it's horrible, body shaming of any size is not cool.
I am a plus size woman and yet I will not shop with a company that feels it is ok to shame another size.
Do we really need body shaming in 2015?
Please let me know.

Taking Shape UK have now said that they are sorry if anyone was offended by their "mischievous stunt"
Firstly, if you are going to apologise, actually apologise and don't do the "sorry if you were offended" trick, we know that one.
And secondly, what I want to call them actually rhymes with mischievous stunts.
