Thanks for the suggestion Anon!
PS- Information on orthorexia
Thanks transiences for the submission!
thanks to we-are-anti-thinspo for bringing this to my attention and speaking out about it!
Isn’t it annoying when you come across a Tumblr that is clearly pro-ana/mia (complete with stats, goal weights, bragging about intake, tips on how to fast, tag their posts as thinspo, etc..)and in the description they’re like ”I DON’T PROMOTE EATING DISORDERS IN ANY WAY-I BELIEVE IN HEALTHY WEIGHT LOSS” so Tumblr won’t delete it.
LOL OKAY calm down
thanks minty-mou for the idea!
Gross I know…but people with ED’s can relate I’m sure. =)
Stumbled across this today. This might be a little harsh…but whatever.
If you want tips on how to be anorexic, this is what you ARE asking:
“How can I quickly….go to inpatient, rehab, drop out of school, lose friends&family, become obsessed, depressed, anxious, suicidal, etc..”
For fuck’s sake. You don’t just get/choose a mental illness overnight. That’s like asking for tips on the internet on how to get cancer. Eating disorders does NOT equal looking “lovely” or pretty, fashion, confidence, etc all that bullshit. Once you’re in it it and lost the weight or not, they will make you loathe yourself more than you can imagine. ED’s have a lot of psychological factors and are not about a trend or fitting into a dress you bought a few sizes lower.
Get “skinny” healthily if you want (or not)… That’s not my place to make that decision and I don’t really care. But stop giving a bad name to actual sufferers of this mental illness.
Edit: Yes, they ARE idiots. Of all the things you could be a wannabe at, why an eating disorder? Sheesh. They start (usually) with weight and appearance, and then develop into a full blown ED. You don’t wake up one day and *wish* for an ED. That’s the issue I have, and that’s what they need serious help with.
Edit #2: Anorexia is not a weight-loss program. You don’t just sign up for it, pay your dues, get “support”, and see the results and then magically feel great about yourself. This is like asking to have DID (colloquially multiple personality disorder) because you want friends. Or asking to somehow alter your brain chemistry and become bipolar because it’s super fun. Stupid, yeah?
