A disease that some people think is self-inflicted, this isn't entirely true, as no one becomes anorexic because THEY want to be thin. People become anorexic because they think everyone else wants them to be thin.
Anorexia is more serious than obesity as a lot more people accept anorexia as being good.

it has nothing to do with weight. plenty of girls are skinny without having eating disorders...girls just get jealous and talk shit about them. it's a way to deal with problems when nothing else is working.

An Eating Disorder that is a very serious and scary matter. Some people believe that the people have to be crazy or have mental problems, however this is not always the case. Also it is believed that you have to starve yourself to be anorexic and dont eat anything. When really You are considered anorexic if you eat under 800 calories a day. Common Symptoms of Anorexia are dark circles under eyes, dizzy spells, black outs, getting worn out after simple tasks, and always being tired. Also they dont have to look like sticks or bones.. thats just the major cases, there are some minor cases of this disorder where you look thin but not like bones!

A disease that emotional girls get themselves into subconsciously, being slowly indoctrinated as they become teenagers, that being beautiful means being skinny.
These young girls do not realise the insignificance of physical beauty and therefore throw themselves into dieting that quickly gets out of control.
Mentally they believe that they need to be skinny and that they will never be beautiful.

What poor anorexics need is some good time to think: life is more than popularity and looks.

Too bad young girls get themselves caught up in a socially competitive culture and therefore find themselves into this horrible disorder.

BASICALLY, the disorder is caused by a lack of intelligent thought, resulting from blind obedience of social expectations, significant celebrity worship, a need to please, a belief that life is about attention from boys and other peers, as well as a thought that the social parts of life is most important.
All this stems from improperly raising female children into thinking they must be pretty and that they need approval. Dependancy upon other opinions, low self-esteem, etc are the fault of society, but it is the GIRL's fault that she did not THINK about her way of thinking, her lifestyle and her world more deeply.
Unfortunately, anorexic girls feel like they've been wronged by the world and they have done nothing wrong and had innocently been led into this world of misguided dieting.
They are mostly correct, since society has taught them that the defining quality of a woman is her feminity: beauty and fragility. BUT...
The thing they do not realise is that they, as human beings, have a responsibility to THINK for themselves, to LEARN on their own, not completely having to be reliant upon guardians or media sources to tell them what to do. Encouraging independant intellectual philosophical thought is important.

Ignorance. It kills.
Pre-anorexia girl #1: Celebrities! They'll know what to do!
Pre-anorexia girl #2: Gosh! I wish Brad would just notice me!
Pre-anorexia girl #3: Being beautiful is EVERYTHING!
Pre-anorexia girl #4: Lindsay Lohan is my idol! I want to be as beautiful as her!
Pre-anorexia girl #5: My life means nothing if that group of girls don't accept me! I have to be thin and skinny! I need a cool social life or I'm screwed emotionally!

Adult observer of such ideas: There is a reason why most anorexic people are teenager girls, and that is that as people grow, they mature and think more often, realising what is important and what is wise. Too bad for anorexic girls who didn't do any of that.

n. A mental disorder that was previously diagnosed as such, but was majorly revised to become a 'disease' in the latest edition in the interests of political correctness. Generally stems from poor self-image; see also depression. Curable; if the therapist is willing to teach and reinforce positive eating habits and help them develop, overall, a positive self-image; including telling them the most important things anyone can hear: That they are beautiful, that they are intelligent, and that they can make it, but they need to make a change. Best dealt with not through the use of a psychologist, but by hiring a beautiful man or woman to cook for said person; who will then smell delicious food and eventually lose their concentration and begin to "chow down like a motherfucker".
