This is not recent at all. Pro-Anorexia has been around for at least 10 years at this point.

The high standards of all the studs on Fark creates unrealistic expectations for women's appearances.

Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

Mind you, I'm only saying that because I'm poor and can't afford to eat regularly, so I'm kinda jealous of those who have food.
Bullimics make me cry; all that good food wasted.

You can make an argument that steroid use among young men is the male-equivalent to anorexia. Neither one is particularly attractive to the opposite sex.

Though everything is The mans fault, this is not. Girls are much harder than guys are. They are cruel and nasty to anyone that does not fit the cookie cutter. So you guys get a pass on this one.

I need it to earn the little money that I make.
Also, to expand my mind.
Also also, it's almost my only rewarding contact with other humans.

The internet is the most useful tool for job hunting. If I were unemployed I would drop my phone before my internet.

Came in here to say this. Google Pro Ana. There have been bag-o-antlers pics posted to the internet as long as there have been pics posted to the internet.

Also, you know what's not helping? All of the focus on how fat our children are getting, and how we need to thin them down. Not that this isn't true for a growing (ha ha) number of children. But the thin ones who do not have weight to lose are listening, too. And becomming increasingly anxious about the fact that AMERICAN CHILDREN ARE FAT!!! Therefore, they are fat. Fatty fat fat. Thunder thighs, even when their thighs do not touch. Add in some standard teen and preteen angst, some control issues, and bingo, a nasty eating disorder.

It's a cute dress, when it isn't on a young teenage boy.

Here I was, all prepared to laud this as one of those rare examples of something constructive coming out of the Internet. Then TFA mentions that it's actually a pro-ana/pro-mia thing. Dammit.

Arguably the worst problem with the Internet is the way it enables some very sick people to sit in a circle and reassure one another that they are not sick.
 
2012-06-05 10:20:00 AM
I see less of this, and more of fat chicks slamming thin women for being anorexic. The ones they slam aren't anorexic though. this pic is pretty bad. There's a difference between fat chicks needing to put the damn fork down instead of focusing their rage on the chicks that look good, and serious anorexia. There are some women who are just naturally skinny though. They could "eat a sammich" and it wont matter. and stuff.

White people problems.

Probably not a bad idea to thin them out of the gene pool.

I just heard a retired FBI BAU agent talk on the role of internet porn in sexual crimes. Porn does not directly cause sexual crime. (this of course does not apply to kiddieporn in which the sexual crime is committed in the creation of the KP) Porn, even sick, twisted stuff, will not cause a healthy person to snap and start committing sex crimes. What it will do, however, is validate the offender's behavior. It will reassure him that he is not broken, but just a person with unusual tastes, but tastes that are shared by others and therefore not exceptionally sick and deviant.

True, when you consider that you can use it to talk to people (video chats and such also).

When I'm not hiding from the world or wasting my time on fark I mostly write software.

You know, it seems like half the chicks posting on Pinterest post cupcakes and the other half weight loss tips. Here's a weight loss tip: Don't eat cupcakes.

Well, gay men. In the fashion industry, the models who wear the clothes are typically women. The men in the industry --many of whom design the clothes or are at least stylists-- are queens, and they commonly resent women on some level. This resentment is (pardon the puns) incorporated into and cloaked by the aesthetic agenda of starved models. It's a gay holocaust conspiracy against women.

This is why there's a correlation between concentration campers and high-fashion models.

Why do you think the most outrageously gay leathermen adopt the Nazi look? After all, Hugo Boss made the SS uniforms.

And as mean as they are to the ones who don't fit, they're downright nasty little trolls to the ones who somehow do. Teenage girls ought to be sent away to live on secluded islands until they're grown enough to rejoin civilization.

God forbid we respect people as Humans regardless of what size they are. Americans hear and see hundreds of thousands of message a year telling them (especially women) that they are bad/ugly/broken because they don't look like [X Celebrity]. And that's not even counting the personal encounters with people who spit on/throw things at/insult fat women just for being out in public.

"Fat Acceptance"/"Size Acceptance" has nothing to do with healthy/unhealthy. It's a civil rights movement that says you can't judge people as sub-human based on how they look.
