Dangerous Obsessions

March 25, 2009

bonjour

Losing weight is one thing but purging yourself beyond belief  is  not right and you must seek help.

The main thing  that annoies me about the media is how they portray skinny, being skinny and coping with parental issues.

In Gossip girl both the books and tvshow feature Blair having an eating disorder. While they do say its bad and she needs help I cant help but wonder if girls are seeing how  beautiful blair is and thinking that its ok to purge their food.

At times it can be like a dangerous dance teetering on between being healthy and being obessive.  Is having photos of gorgous (skinny) women obsessive or keeping yourself on track with a goal in mind?  Is finding out the dress size of famous celebrities obsessive or plain interest?  Is the fact that looking at old photos of onesself difficult to look at anything to worry about?

Who fucken knows.

I have lost my point.
