why would i think that people enjoy anorexia?? pardon me, but this is my experience. lots of girls in my grade at school have eating disorders and many try and get skinnier and skinnier because they think other people dont approve of them. i didnt mean that anorexic's do what they do to impress the opposite sex, but from my own expereinces, many girls encourage themselves to become even skinnier becasue they they that a side effect will be having others be interested in them physically. idk if u can call lots of people anorexic, many people have eating disorders, some more serious than others. but Anorexia is an actual fear of becoming fat, and im sure over time many people such as models in the modeling industry develope a fear of becoming fat. is offline   Reply With Quote
