it’s not that I can’t take selfies, selfies can’t take me
a podcast recorded with a $60 dollar mic in a harlem apartment about an openly queer radio host with a poc love interest as literally the most normal part of the show made it to be the number one most dowloaded podcast in all of america and if you don’t think that’s the tightest thing you can get out of my face
Anonymous said: youre just jealous cuz you cant lose any weight! Being pro ana MEANS you have anorexia and you need to stop acting superior just bcuz you think we dont have the same problems you do. some anorexics actually like theyre bodies so shut the f up, k? <3
Wrong. You do not have even close to the same problems that actual eating disorder victims do. When you reach your goal weight, you can take some self-congratulatory photos, delete your myfitnesspal account, and waltz back off to real life without a care in the world. HOWEVER, for someone with an actual eating disorder, the scenario I just described will never, ever happen. Not without serious professional intervention. We will keep going. We can never eat too little, or purge too much. I don’t know about others, but personally, every time i restrict or count calories or throw up, I don’t feel proud. I feel good about the weight I’m losing, yes, but I feel horrible, tearing, soul crushing guilt about the way I’m doing it. I’m destroying myself, I’m breaking my best friend’s heart. And I. Can’t. Stop. What pro anas are doing, for all points and purposes, is a diet. A very ill-advised one (and I would like to mention my point of view, which is that anyone who starves themselves for any reason, has some sort of issues that need to be worked through, but not necessarily an eating disorder.) What eating disorder victims have is a disease. So please, cut your bullshit. (Also, I have never once heard of a practicing eating disorder victim liking their body.) <3
im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh
I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.
