I myself am in recovery from eating-disordered behaviours, and while I, on rare occasions that were much more frequent when this blog started, post images of skinny people, they’re tagged “thinspo” so people can use something like Tumblr Savior to avoid them. I believe in using tags properly to avoid triggering people.
However, what other people claim my workouts are is their own action. Yes, a number of my readers are obviously dealing with eating disorders. I used to get tons of questions about thigh gaps and losing weight unhealthily fast, and that’s why I try to be open about the hell that is an eating disorder.
I am not pro-ana. I do not believe that an eating disorder is a choice or a lifestyle. It’s a difficult mental illness, not a fad diet.Leave a comment View 5 Notes
