Theses people are sick, they are ill themselves. They don't understand that it is wrong.
They're not stupid. They know it's wrong. They just don't care and they don't want to stop.

She never said they were stupid, but i agree, some people with ED's dont admit they have a problem. In fact one of the first ways they are given treatment is to make them realise they have a problem.
i didn't say they were stupid, but a lot of the time girls (or guys) just deny that there is anything wrong with themselves...they are convinced that they are fat and these sites will often make them feel a lot worse about themselves because they automatically assume that they are not as thin as the people they see pictures of.
I know you didn't actually say "they're stupid" but you said that they don't understand. They do understand. And the sites would make them feel better. Not worse. It can give them support when they're feeling like shit. If they didn't have the site they'd be just as bad off. Maybe worse. The sites are just like support groups. And they support recovery, too. But they'd still be starving themselves with or without the sites. =/

NO. You're very wrong.

Anorexia/Bulimia is a choice. Of course you know when you have an ED. You don't deny it to yourself, but you do tell everyone that they are wrong.

They can't help it. It's not "stupid", it's a mental disorder.

They are NOT a choice! Are you MAD?

Do you think people wake up and say "I know: I think I'll starve myself to death and see myself fat today."

Acctually, some people have it for quite a while before they relise it is wrong. They see themselves as fat and they try to cut down on food, it is a mental and physical struggle between "am I fat?" and "is something wrong with me?". A lot of them don't even realize it is Anorexia or Bulumia.

I don't see anything wrong with these sites. They help the people relize that they have a problem, and they encourage them to seek help. The veterans share their experiences and the newer members ask how they can stop.

Eating Disorders aren't a personal coice, or at least thats what i was lead to beleive. I always thought they were partly a mental disorder, not the persons own fault.
Also, one of the first steps in treating anorexia is, according to this website
http://hcd2.bupa.co.uk/fact_sheets/html/anorexia.html
Quote
Getting help is very important. For people with anorexia, admitting that they have a problem is the first, yet hardest, step. If they take that step, they can find the support and treatment they need to stop anorexia taking over their lives

Granted, this only covers Anorexia, and for sufferers of Bullimia it may be different.

Not the PRO ana/mia sites. They do have recovery links and stuff, but it's mainly about support to continue.

I came across one of those a few months ago when I was doing research for a project on eating disorders, its pretty sick.
I tryed to convince them to quit what they're doing, like telling them all the long-term damage they can cause to their bodies but they were having none of it, in the I just end of gave up.

Well of course. I'm sure they're aware of the dangers. It just doesn't matter to them. And, especially in a community like that where they're free to believe that what they're doing isn't wrong, they would feel offended or threatened when an outsider comes in and tells them that what they're doing is wrong.

Well that's just sickening. They could be held responsible for someone dying of anorexia.

=/ It wouldn't be the site's fault that they're starving themselves to death.
