I will always reblog this because it is so so important.
I just want to nail this to every stable surface I can find. I cannot count the amount of times that I’ve seen fat folks being encouraged, cajoled, and even forced into behaviors that would be recognized as disordered eating/exercising patterns in thin folks.
Pretty much everything that’s done on shows like The Biggest Loser would be called out as pro-ana/pro-orthorexia in a thin person. Exercising past the point that it hurts, to the point where you’re throwing up, even injuring yourself? Berating yourself because you didn’t lose ENOUGH weight this week? Constantly talking about how fat is weakness and thinness will make everything better, about how you can’t stand to be your current weight anymore? Emphasis on weight as a sign of how much control, strength, and worth you have? Viewing food as bad, as a temptation to sin? Constant sharing and talking about tips on how to minimize food intake, how to lose weight?
That sounds exactly like every pro-ana/pro-mia blog I’ve ever seen. It’s also what fat people are told we need to be doing to ourselves until we’re thin.
This and a thousand times this. There was a reason why on the ward all the girls with eating disorders would surreptitiously watch The Biggest Loser every night whenever they had a tv unsupervised (and that they would watch it at home if they got leave).
my blog used to be so beautiful and now it’s just me complaining about law school and my mental health. i’m sorry guys.
Dear professors, if you are going to make us study a module you’ve written on Hegel, that our exam is based on, the least you could really do is proofread it and use some decent fucking grammar.

just adding to that earlier post about ridiculous shit in court cases, the case I am reading now has given rise to my new favourite phrase - “saucy intruders”. Context being that a hunter was hunting a fox, and about to kill said fox after chasing it for a fair time, has some other hunter appear from nowhere and kill the fox and cart it off, with the original hunter then suing the second hunter. Judges refer to the second hunter as a “saucy intruder” I literally cannot someone help
