Pro bulimia tips and tricks

Pro anorexic sites are websites full of anorexic images and anorexia and bulimia tips and tricks.These sites glorify disorders such as anorexia and bulimia and promote them as lifestyle choices.
They claim that those suffering have the right to be left alone to do what they want with their own bodies.Yes, everyone has the right to do what they want with their own body.

That goes without saying.But rights are about the right to be happy and live a long and fulfilling life, and all the other things that we should all be able to take for granted, not the right to pass on dangerous information such as these bulimia tips and tricks.

I've spent quite a lot of time viewing pro anorexic and pro bulimia sites and have even signed up with one so that I can advertise my website from there.

What can be seen is heartbreaking. Young women and girls sharing bulimia tips and tricks and other ways to lose weight, whilst occasionally opening their hearts about the truth - the fact that they are desperately unhappy.

Anorexic images abound as members desperately compete to lose the most weight.They pass tips to each other - ways to purge, the best laxatives, ways to fill themselves up with the minimum of calories, etc, etc.

They post and view pictures such as these, which they call 'thinspiration.'These websites do not help anyone - they perpetuate the damage that these girls and women are doing to themselves. They are simply encouraging each other to starve.

And they are determined to survive. Even though they were banned by Google, there are masses of them to be found on Live Journal - another search engine.

Having searched them for anorexia I found no less than 348 pro anorexic websites.According to this Daily Mail article, these are just the tip of the iceberg. Apparently there are thousands of these sites, actively encouraging young girls to starve themselves.

'Social websites like MySpace encourage anorexia', warn charities

Eating disorder charities have called on social websites such as My Space, Face book and You tube to have tighter controls on their content, after they found anorexic girls using them to pass on bulimia tips and tricks.

The bizarre fad - known as thinspiration - is partly driven by ultra skinny celebrities such as Nicole Richie and Victoria Beckham. Now thousands of shocking videos showing shocking anorexic images have been posted by teens on popular film clip site You Tube.
