Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are linked with fat people and thin people, and the general belief that you can tell by looking at someone if that person has an eating disorder. So better understanding of such disorders leads to better understanding of their relationship (or lack thereof) with fatness and thinness.

On a related note, I keep getting surprised by how much Skepchick overlaps with size acceptance and related stuff like eating disorders, and it happened again today. So rather than reinvent the wheel, here’s a great post by Olivia for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week: http://skepchick.org/2014/02/national-eating-disorder-awareness-week-myths/
