Re: “The ProAna movement finds 'thinspiration' in pictures of anorexics

It's not the "pro-ana" people that feel inspired/triggered by photos of anorexics. It has been well-documented for many years that people with anorexia seek out "inspiration" that way, and are known to read things like medical textbooks for it.

Dandelion Girl is right - people in pro-ana are seeking to end their isolation, and often have a lack of access to care. The pain of an eating disorder makes a person suffer, so naturally they try ways to make it livable.

A lot of what goes on in pro-ana is just a visible manifestation of eating disorder symptoms, not anything new or shocking.
