Why would anybody be pro-"ana" - isn't that a cute name for something that kills so many people every year? It's a disgusting thing and makes it's victims look like death, hurts families that have to watch it - get away from this stupid stupid fad.
So well said. Completely agree, it is not a cute little game to play.
All this attention seeking "emo" crap is totally out of hand--cutting, "ana" --what else? These kids have too much time on their hands and not enough chores to do. Keep them busy and productive and there would be none of this crap except for the true psychological victims.
Agree with you ^_^
Thank you for this. I'm right there with you.
Anorexia is not a fad. It's a disorder. And it will never go away. Unless media changes but if anything that'll only get worse.
Of course you're right--but to have little 'clubs' on line that legitimize this as a way of life is flat out wrong. They aren't trying to help each other to get out of this cycle of self-destruction--they are giving advice on how to do it - supporting this lifestyle.
I am pro choice. Its not my place to tell people what they should and shouldnt do. If I was asked my opinion, I would say that its unhealthy and you hurt your self. <br />
people smoke, gamble their homes away, have unprotected sex, stay in emotionally and physically abusive relationships, etc. All equally damaging. So if all of that is damaging and I stay out of it, I dont find this any different. People have the right to lead their own lives. When they decide they need help, I would be there to help, not judge them
My opinion on this is trivial. Help the people that need help by being a positive influence (whatever that is) in their lives and your own.
If you actually wants to have the ana discussion- you can do it with me in PM. Also, if they want to come to my ward to see what it does to people and get a slap of reality- they can do that too- and see if they want to be your pro ana friends. <br />
I am so sick and tired of this glamorous side of eating disorders. NO ONE should ever be pro Anorexia.
i don't view it in those terms.<br />
the people who have it aren't doing something bad, they just need help so they don't die.
Anti. People who are anorexic are mentally sick and need medical help.
Anti. Anorexism is unhealthy lifestyle choice.
pro ana for myself...
I see no reasonable argument for being "in favor of" a potentially terminal disorder. This isn't even a question to me.
... I'm pro healthy eating though...
Anorexia's not a good thing.
It's not really a lifestyle choice but a very complex pyschological disorder which needs the intervention of intense pyschiatric help in order to get cured.<br />
I'm not pro it at all and think the websites that encourage it are one of the very sad and distressing downsides to the marvel that is the world wide web.
sure im anti ana
Neither. I don't believe in starving ourselves to death, but I've been on an extreme diet for months now and want to lose at least 10kg more. If you are also dieting, do you want to talk?
im pro ana
anorexia is a losing strategy, there is no gain from it...
