So today on FB I commented about the author of an article saying she ‘flirted’ with diets, EATING DISORDERS, etc. was problematic, even though the article was about the seriousness of girls’ body image issues. And then someone disagreed with me that saying flirting with eating disorders was just like saying flirting with bankruptcy, alcoholism, etc. and it’s just a cutesy way to talk about something serious….
The difference is, people already take those other things seriously.
