„You are not a mistake. Your body is not fat and ugly. You must not be beautiful, thin and weak. Body shaming of women and girls has it’s roots in patriarchy. To enslave women and girls men need weak women and girls, which are destroying themselves. To end this circle of violence and hate against women and girls, women and girls must not play this bad game anymore and must be proud of themselves, of their souls, their bodies, their strength and power“
-Anita Kanitz
„And, what's more, this 'precious' body, the very same that is hooted and honked at, demeaned both in daily life as well as in ever existing form of media, harrassed, molested, raped, and, if all that wasn't enough, is forever poked and prodded and weighed and constantly wrong for eating too much, eating too little, a million details which all point to the solitary girl, to EVERY solitary girl, and say: Destroy yourself.”
― Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls

“A consequence of female self-love is that the woman grows convinced of social worth. Her love for her body will be unqualified, which is the basis of female identification. If a woman loves her own body, she doesn't grudge what other women do with theirs; if she loves femaleness, she champions its rights. It's true what they say about women: Women are insatiable. We are greedy. Our appetites do need to be controlled if things are to stay in place. If the world were ours too, if we believed we could get away with it, we would ask for more love, more sex, more money, more commitment to children, more food, more care. These sexual, emotional, and physical demands would begin to extend to social demands: payment for care of the elderly, parental leave, childcare, etc. The force of female desire would be so great that society would truly have to reckon with what women want, in bed and in the world.”
― Naomi Wolf, The Beauty Myth

I'm glad that they are trying to tell the story again, because the other films surrounding this topic are really cliché. But, to be honest, I'm really disappointed in the actress - she only lost weight to satisfy her historic eating disorder at the expense of many lives. It's SO selfish. I didn't just watch the trailer Lilly Collins, I watched the movie thinking that it would be better than the trailer - but the hypocrisy was with you all through the film. They should have focused on the psychology, and not romanticise the body - they had the perfect setting to do so! The talk therapy group and all! There was no reason to put up pictures of a computerised emaciated Ms Collins onto the screen. Sure, there are tons of other pictures that mentally ill people can look at on the internet, but none with a big fat celebrity "I lost this much weight healthfully" on it. She's not back to her original weight, I bet the money she made from the film has covered the Nutritionist's costs etc. .... what a laugh after she published her book!

A “comedy”? Find something actally funny, and not a eating disorder

As an anorexia survivor, I have not watched this movie, and I refuse to because I don’t want to be put in a place to be triggered. People who may be suffering may want to watch this and wouldn’t be benificial

The accessibility of Netflix allows easily influenced young girls to be drawn in and deceived by the dramatisation and advertisment of this damaging mental illness.

Eating disorders destroy lives. This is not the kind of publicity needed. We need positive messages that life with an eating disorder can change for the better.
