You know, it’s not just current, “modern media” that portrays bodies in “unrealistic” ways. Most of the ancient Egyptian Pharaoh’s have their statues with broad shoulders and narrow waists. Basically because they’re Pharaohs and want to be seen as some sort of ideal. The ones you see above however are of Akhenaten. As 10th Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, his reign was different from the others in that his statues and such, basically showed him as he probably REALLY was. As some say, basically opposite of all those other ones where the artists probably just made it as an “ideal”. He had “narrow shoulders, a pot belly and a sunken chest.” He also had some other different things like having Egyptians do away with worshipping multiple Gods… They also say he was probably forced to abdicate the thrown… and then Egypt went back to how it was before him. He’s also King Tut’s dad. Oh well. Random post, I know. Some people also think he was an extra terrestrial…
Soooooo…………. Personification and glorification of mental illness with cute little names…….. Actually having mental illness or not, this kind of stuff is not helpful and incredibly minimizing and just…
And she calls it “satire”. Wow.
That’s what it is. Look in the dictionary.
So stupid. I know what satire is. I’m not a stupid anorexic with a gap in my brain to match my thighs.
the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.
Plus- Oh look who is making fun of EDs now!
What’s even funnier is how she tells me to get my facts straight. Like I don’t already know about this.
It’s kind of sad how you passive aggressively post things about people. That being said. Seeing how pro-anas start off with the fact that they do not have EDs, that it is a “lifestyle choice” How they go about parading “tips and tricks” go around asking for “Ana Buddies” and completely misappropriate and misguide people as to what actual EDs are like and can actually trigger the hell out of people with actual EDs, some trying to use “pro-ana” to try to make it seem like that are not sick and they are “choosing” it…. Pro-ana, how I wish it would stop being associated and brought up with actual eating disorders. Engaging in disordered eating or extreme dieting, having “poor self esteem” or “hating yourself” (which is not really the case because if they truly hated themselves, they’d let themselves stay as they are then because they’d want themselves to suffer…and not take a million selfies) does not constitute an eating disorder
fun fact: you don’t cure depression by telling me i have nothing to be sad about
another fun fact: you dont cure anxiety by just getting up and doing whatever it is that makes you anxious
For anxiety, you actually kind of do…. It’s called Exposure Response and Prevention Therapy.
