girl purging and a girl binge eating (assuming she ate that entire box of chocolate) = both eating disorders.
Um okay except you’re making an assumption that a fat chick ate an entire box of chocolate in one sitting based on a gif that only shows her consuming one piece. You’re filling in the lines with your own assumptions about fat bodies.
You’re also making an assumption that a woman has an eating disorder based on a hypothetical photo of her purging. You don’t know her, her situation, or why she’s purging - you’re looking at a photo on the fucking internet and making an assumption.
Seriously, am I making this hard to understand or something? I thought it was pretty simple. STOP. ASSUMING.
I’ve eaten an entire box of chocolates in one sitting, but that doesn’t mean I have an eating disorder. I’m sure plenty of people have done the same after a particularly bad day or in response to some sort of craving. It’s human, it’s what we do.
Food is comforting and sometimes we indulge a little more than we “should”, but doing so doesn’t mean you’re a bad person, or even an unhealthy one.
To make a long story short, as a society, we really need to try to stop taking things at face value. Stop making assumptions that you are not qualified to make. It’s harmful and perpetuates body hate. Just fucking stop.
