This Must Stop

This is what I mean. Apparently, there are a bunch of little girls on the web that worship annorexia. Read that one more time: little girls that worship annorexia. I don't think I can treat this as humorous, it's too scary.

It is said that the way these girls talk about "Ana" is comparable to the way people talk to their god/gods. This is more frightening than normal religion: at least standard religious fare is based on some sort of "faith" in a "greater power", not a life-threatening disorder. People, they PRAY to a FUCKING DISEASE!

How do I know these are little girls? Do a google search on it: all them have 12 year old AOL'er names like ~!!!aNgeLgRrrl_109983pRinCEssLoLoMfG!!!~. That and these future walking skeletons actually look up to (I'm not joking on this one) Lindsey F'ing Lohan and Mary-Kate S'ing Olsen. Therefore, I can't suggest we make fun, only help them. But as soon as they turn 18, they are officially soon-to-be-nominated-for-the-Darwin-award idiots.

It's the older ones I think I officially dislike. According to the Associated Press, a preliminary survey of teens who've been diagnosed with eating disorders at the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford University, for instance, found that 40 percent had visited Web sites that promote eating disorders. This means people old enough to actually have and create websites are convincing children that is is OK to have an eating disorder.

This must stop. I am going to e-mail some of the web hosts for some of these sites, and will publish any follow up.
