Aspen Lovett started this petition to Tumblr

The dark side of Tumblr - photos of sickly-thin girls, and hundreds, if not thousands, of accounts pressuring each other into starving themselves for the name of conventional beauty standards.

This is Tumblr's pro-anorexia (often shortened to pro-ana or even just ana) community. This community wreaks havoc on the self-esteem of young men and women, and promotes dangerous, sometimes fatal eating habits.

Anorexia is the most deadly psychological illness in the world, and it thrives in these dark corners of the internet, ignored by those who have the power to put a stop to it. 

Sure, there's the "Everything okay?" reference sheet that pops up when you search "pro-ana" and similar tags. But beyond minimal defense, this world of toxic mindsets and self-harm is far too accessible. 

I propose that Tumblr ban these tags and accounts, just as they did with NSFW content.

Let's encourage a kinder, pro-recovery Tumblr.
