Misanthropic, cynical and utterly without compassion.  That is a GOOD headline Subby!

How is encouraging a doll to eat considered promoting anorexia?
I mean logically, how does that work?
 
2014-01-24 10:00:24 AM
How stupid.  The doll was created to show that it's not easy to feed a fussy baby.  You have to turn the spoon a certain way to make the baby eat.  But naturally, some ignorant retard sees this as a reason to be outraged.  We don't deserve this planet anymore.

Some people just like to complain. This is a baby doll that acts like a baby, and has nothing whatsoever to do with anorexia. Does a doll that wets itself mock the incontinent?

Once the child gets the doll to eat the food... how do they get the food back to play again?
Any chance that process would cause a distorted view of the real process?

As a bonus you can taunt the doll, call it fat, make it feel like it's not good enough, walk out on it at a young age and give it daddy issues.  It shows up on your doorstep 20 years later with a baby of its own and a methhead boyfriend asking for money.

Note to the young, impressionable 18-25 year-old girls out there....

If you look in the mirror and wonder if you're getting fat, the answer is YES, you farking heffalump.  Look at you!  What man would want a disgusting pig like you?  I mean, seriously.  You call THAT a 6-pack?  You know what 3% body fat means?  It means 3% FAILURE you heiffer!  Blowing up like a farking baloon but you just HAD to have that second bite of your rice cake, right Porky?

2014-01-24 10:25:32 AM
Whatever. If a doll eats it promotes obesity, if it is a fussy eater it promotes eating disorders. Probably promotes genderism too because you're supposed to dress babies in brown sacks until they can choose a gender identity for themselves. If you look hard enough you'll be able to find "critics" you can quote who have a problem with anything.

And what are we teaching these kids when they're 10 or 12 and they need to throw their dolls away?  Abortion, that's what.  And we can't just outlaw dolls, that sounds like Hitler-talk.  Dolls are our problem now.
No, no, don't give those homeless dolls any spare change, they'll just use it to smoke drugs.

Make sure you have an apple or some carrots on the side.  That shiat will bind you up.

I don't see how this promotes anorexia is the least. Anyone who has tried to feed a baby before knows they can be fussy and refuse to eat.

Actually, you are quite correct. Anorexia can include binging and purging, and bulimia can be present without it. The difference is whether or not the person is underweight.

Many years ago, I dated a girl who was bulimic. While I was concerned about the health effects, what really pissed me off was that if we went out to eat in a nice restaurant, I knew she'd just puke it right back up in the bathroom before we left instead of actually enjoying it.

For many people, "refuse to eat" is a baffling and confusing term.

I've never tried to feed a baby and even *I* know that.  The critics are beyond stupid.

Wrong.
Bulimics can be underweight. They can be average weight. They can be above average weight. Bulimia is solely about bingeing and purging. Those that are Anorectic are classified by severely restricting. Those that alternate between both, are typically classified as ED-NOS (not otherwise specified).
Source: was Bulimic for 11 years, had all kinds of treatment, haven't binged/purged now in almost 3.

So why were you taking her out to eat? It's like taking an alcoholic to a bar, then getting pissed because they get hammered.

Well, it does promote unhealthy feeding habits for babies--if the baby doesn't want to eat, there's a reason. Force-feeding it and ignoring the fussing isn't really a good plan.

Good to know we've beat the world hunger problem. Now we have food left for dolls that simply reject it.

Same reason anyone does stupid shiat, especially in their early 20s:  wanted to get laid.

Seems more like it would encourage infant abuse and early sociopathic childraging.  Looking at the mouth on the doll, doesn't look like the food is meant to fit.  So now you've got a frustrated kid with a baby doll that won't eat the food that the kid worked long and hard to earn and dammit it's going to eat it whether it liked it or not because that food is GOOD FOR YOU!  So the child grabs the doll by the head and twists so that it points at the food.  Then Child X starts jamming that spoon into the doll's face repeatedly as hard as they can.  Eventually the doll is dead and the child is going to need something else to practice on.
