To The Bone is a movie on Netflix about a girl with an eating disorder. While eating disorder awareness is important, this movie only reinforces the harmful stereotypes of eating disorders. Additionally, the movie is extremely triggering to watch. The movie needs to be removed from Netflix immediately.

The movie To The Bone is extremely triggering to watch. It portrays a young woman starving herself, and she is incredibly thin and looks ill. It also shows her using very disordered eating habits. This not only is very triggering to watch, it also supports harmful stereotypes about eating disorders. The behaviors are impressionable to teenagers, which is the movie’s main and target audience. Furthermore, I am aware that many people suffering from eating disorders use the movie to trigger themselves purposely, in order to motivate themselves to get sicker. I have done this myself, and I know of many others who have. 

It is unacceptable that a movie like this was even made, and even worse that the main character was played by an actress who has a history of an eating disorder. The movie is not suitable for people to be watching, and should be removed immediately.
