WHEN PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THEIR ED AS THOUGH IT WERE A PERSON

Please stop talking about marilyn monroe and eating disorder recovery.I’m not even talking about the fact that she’s just another standard you’re adding to the list of accepted body types.
People rarely develop eating disorders because they’re trying to be sexy. Do you really think everyone is going around trying to be attractive for boys? Does that explain why we completely destroy our bodies, most often making them less attractive?
Extreme dieting or romanticizing emaciation is not the same thing as having an eating disorder. Sometimes, girls without eating disorders romanticize the idea about being painfully thin for a variety of reasons.
acceptance
love
conformity to a pop culture fad
desire for identity
idolization of thin figures
trying to be a character they are not
many more
These issues are a part of growing up today, now that our media is so expansive and all-encompassing. The development of a self relies on the person’s environment: the society. So, these issues definitely need to be addressed; It’s important to instill a healthy self-image, in all respects, physical and otherwise, as we raise our children. These issues are important - but they are separate from eating disorders.
An eating disorder is a mental illness which, if not manifested as an ED, would manifest into other serious symptoms/disorders. A person with an eating disorder can be in denial about their mental illness and believe themselves to be a part of the former category, but, should their body image improve, their mental illness remains.
Borderline Personality Disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Histrionic Personality Disorder
Bipolar, Type I and II
Anxiety Disorders
Depression
Schizophrenia
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Dependent Personality Disorder
Schizoid Personality Disorder
Masochism
Dysthymia
Consequentially, the following are not effective eating disorder treatments:
copious photographs of marilyn monroe
boycotting airbrushed photos
banning thin models
throwing away pop-culture magazines
saying “you’re beautiful” without knowing who you’re speaking to
By perpetuating the idea that all eating disorders stem from a root of body image issues, you are actively making it more difficult for we - the disordered, the dying - to receive help for our root mental illness.

Well that was awesome! I cried though, I cried so badly! Especially when she started to cry talking about Robin and Mathew! Then I just started uncontrollably balling like a baby. I think I just grew to live her even more! She is one remarkable lady :)

For alchemyofjewels, two pictures from the same photoshoot as you posted with a better view of that crocheted cape-thing. The bottom pic is from a 2007 concert where Stevie wears the same garment as in the Rock A Little-photoshoot. The cape is attached to the mantel but I don’t know if the hat is the first 2 pics is actually attached to the cape and mantel or if it’s a separate piece.
