It’s been a while since I checked out the ole’ YouTube Thinspo videos….so I went for a troll this morning. Consider the time and energy young women spend to create these videos, creatively adding music, screen fades, and proanorexia text.
(PARENTS: DON’T LOOK AWAY THESE ARE REAL IMAGES……Yes, the Mary Kate and Ashley images says “I can be like them)
Pro-Anorexia = Trend in young women and men to be anorexic.
Ana & Mia = Code names for Pro Anorexia and Pro Bulimia
Thinspiration = A term used to describe pictures that help pro-anorexics stay on track with their goal to starve themselves.
Red Bracelet = A sign proanorexic’s were to identify to others of their clan. A status symbol of the pro-anorexia moment.
Think about the passion behind this video…this girl really had to pour her sad and lonely heart into this one.
Today’s Thinspiration Video is compliments of someone who calls herself “mamapapa” and choose the song “Save Me.” Think this her not so subtle a cry for help?
