i can’t decide if i actually find this way more offensive than the article it was written in response to lol i hate everyone
fucking hell i made the mistake of looking at the comments hoping for someone mildly intelligent who noticed how rude this is… short answer, everyone sucks and now there’s shattered glass and coffee all over the room and wall across from me :-)
"…they get to feel special because they’ve joined a victim group”
"So let us consider the Bulimic, who’s demanding that you pity her and pay for her “healthcare,” because she has a disease (known only in North America) which causes her to stick her hand down her throat after each meal, and buy lots of Tic Tacs."
“Suicide is the perfect embrace of the victim mentality, refusing to take responsibility for anything, and laying your own self-destruction at the feet of those around you.”
“The sort of girl who has an eating disorder is the sort of girl who’ll poke holes in the condoms, who’ll file a false rape accusation, who’ll start an argument the night before you go to a job interview, and who’ll give you the silent treatment when you take her on vacation.”
“The girl with the Eating Disorder, like all of those who revel in their own infirmities, rejects all notion of responsibility for her choices. She is toxic, destructive, and – ultimately – pathetic.
Avoid her like the plague that she is.”
I literally broke down crying reading this article.
And the comments are worse.
“If you decide you don’t want to eat because you’re that concerned about body image. Go ahead and purge. You don’t deserve to eat.”
“I enjoyed this post, it’s on point and a great response to the hate from these vile women. ”
“Definitely true, wow. Have you dated an eating disorder girl yourself? Having done so—a true one, past 30, overweight, and yet clinically bulimic —had to go to inpatient treatment–I can tell you that, once they stop seeing you as a savior, they start seeing you as an extension of themselves, and something to hurt for their not feeling good.
Run, boys, run.”
jesus fucking christ i cannot even put into words how much i want to sit down with this man and tell him how wrong he is
“In other words, she is a monster – a monster by her own choice”
please, tell that to fifteen year old me who fell a lot further than she wanted to without even knowing it and was trapped in a downward spiral but was too scared to admit it that i nearly killed myself, please tell her that she is demanding pity
