NOTE: This post deals with some very graphic information about Anorexia and Suicide, but it is real life, and the intent behind the story is to educate people, namely parents and loved ones, about some of the true realities of what is going on in the Pro-Ana arenas online. MamaVISION is on a mission to help as many girls move away from the dangers off Pro-Ana living and onto healthier lives. If you are sensitive to this kind of graphic information, then click out now.
Anorexia has killed yet another, but this time the death of a young girl is documented, minute by minute, for the world to see.
Kristi, the ring leader of the Live Journal Pro-Anorexia site documents her last moments of life on the post below, proving yet again the adapting Pro-Ana lifestyle is messing with fire.
No fear Pro-Anas, your journals will not miss a beat. Your new leader immediately took over for Kristi, reiterated the PRO-ANA MISSION, and dedicated to convincing us all you are an eating disorder âsupportâ site.
Hold your comments Pro-Anas: I have no intention of interfering with your beloved sites, since I am a believer in free speech and removing the Pro-Ana sites from the web serves no purpose. I refuse to put my head in the sand. (more after the jump)
My purpose is to educate. Educate parents, friends, and family on the rampant nature of the Pro-Anorexia community online.
My message is getting through, I receive comments from girls from all over the world that admit they visit your sick community, and have realized you are leading them down a path towards destruction.
PARENTS, HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
These are the bracelets they wear, proud of their starvation lifestyle. The bracelets are readily available online:
This is their status symbol. A feeding tube, afterall, proves you are a hard core anorexic:
This is what they stress about, a day over 200 calories is a total crisis:
Why do I care? This was me, a model at 16, 5â²9, 125 pounds and miserable as hell. My self confidence stripped from me by my Modeling agent and the Fashion Industry.
No one is going to tell me that the Media does not play a role in anorexia- not in every case, but in many.
The worst part of this story? The pro-anorexic girls I âfeaturedâ here would be proud to have their skeletons highlighted for the world to see. Their starvation success achieved, the attention they crave fulfilled.
If you want to join my cause, please leave your comments on the Official Public Petition to the Council of American Fashion Designers.
Together we can end this absolute madness.
