I was reading an article, actually that is a lie I have seen a few articles on newspapers and blogs about eating disorders and weight. There have been interviews where celebrities such as Cheryl Cole has said that she gets called fat and that Hilary Duff NEEDS to loose weight after having a baby. I mean really?!
It sickens me that this kind of thing is happening. It really does not surprise me that things such as eating disorders are increasing. There are also even websites now available which tell you how to be bulimic and anorexic as well as abusing laxatives. This stuff is harmful for the person who uses them. Not only does it damage them mentally but also physically inside and out! It is quite scary that people as young as 9 could get hold of this information. Bodies come in all shapes and sizes and one is not better than the other. Not to mention that just because they are different makes one 'fatter' than the other either.
I have already done a blog post on eating disorders but I wanted to reiterate the point of the harshness of these things and to make people aware of them so that they can prevent young children especially prone to it.
I am all for being healthy but there is a right way to go about it. When did we start living in a world where this is acceptable?! because it isn't. It is hurtful and damaging people lives as I type.
We should be advocating that it is what type of person you are that should matter not what size clothes people think you should fit in.
