For those of you who don't know what Pro Ana is all about, it is the abbreviation of Pro Anorexia. If you're scratching your head and asking "what!?" right now you're in the same boat as I was. The Pro Ana movement believes and maintains that Anorexia is not a disorder but a lifestyle choice
and encourages people of a similar mindset to pursue their goal to be thin
. They also offer other Anorexics advice on how to conceal weight loss from friends, family and health professionals.
WTF? You do what? Hun?! You tell some 14 year old girl who's been conditioned by fashion magazines that she should bare her ribs like Allie McBeal? WHAT?! I'm sorry but I've got to draw the line right here and now. Anorexia this is a very serious eating disorder and if one were to pursue this lifestyle choice
they have a very serious chance of dying or at the very least being hospitalized. These people should get some professional help so they can get better and after that maybe they can actually help their peers to cope with and overcome this horrible disorder.
Want to find out more about Pro Ana websites and orgs? Well good luck, I did a lot of digging and came up empty but several major news agencies have run articles on the appears of such sites on the net. Don't believe me check for yourself.
Knowledge is power. Arm yourselves!
