I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

THAT AWKWARD MOMENT WHEN ANOREXIA IS A MENTAL ILLNESS AND YOU CAN’T ‘TRY’ TO HAVE IT LOL WAY TO PERPETUATE THE TRIVIALIZING OF EATING DISORDERS (WHICH ARE DEADLY AND LIFE-SHATTERING DISEASES) KAT DENNINGS A+ FOR YOU

She was just saying that she wasn’t trying to fit the world’s picture of beautiful. She is awesome. Calm your tits, bro. If you don’t like it, don’t perpetuate it.

Calm my tits? You’ve obviously never experienced an ED. Anorexia is a mental illness, not a “beauty standard.” Weight loss is a SYMPTOM, not the disorder. Society trivializes eating disorders by blaming them on society. EDs are caused by trauma, abuse, neglect, etc. Extreme dieting and anorexia are different, though they both have the effect of weight loss, they should NEVER be used synonymously.

Actually, the word anorexia denotes a medical condition, defined only by a lack or loss of appetite for food. Anorexia nervosa is an emotional disorder characterized by an obsessive desire to lose weight by refusing to eat. People have eating disorders for all sorts of reasons, and by no means are they all trauma/abuse/neglect related.
I’d like to take a moment to say that I hate the way that tumblr completely strips messages of their intentionality and focuses only on what kind of specific issue-sensitive subliminal message could be forcefully extracted. 
Even if you disagree that eating disorders can be blamed on society (which is arguable, given the staggering increase in eating disorders exhibited by our generation as opposed to the ones prior, in times where the ideal body image was not quite as unrealistically thin), society and culture perpetuate the idea of the “correct” body image, because they put that and only that in front of our eyes, and we internalize that as culture and see everything else as inferior. So yes, society is partially responsible for the terrible body image issues that face our generation.
Posters like this show a beautiful girl who is adored by modern culture, who does not adhere to the strict unspoken standards, and who still thrives. She is a fantastic role model, as far as I’m concerned. This is exactly what all of the young girls of America need to see. 
The fact that all you take from this is a possible misuse of the word anorexic, is very sad. It is not trivializing the eating disorder because it’s not unrealistic. Some girls DO try to have eating disorders. It has been glamorized in certain subcultures, whether you like it or not. I find that horrifying. Regardless, it does not perpetuate the idea that eating disorders are not very serious illnesses. It perpetuates the idea that you are ABOVE the bullshit our culture has been feeding us since we’ve been born.
People on tumblr really need to stop getting so butt hurt over every little thing and look at intentionality.
