[TW: eating disorders]

Eating disorders in fat people are often seen as a victory of self-control over excess. In my view, this reality means that fat people will suffer more as they linger without a diagnosis. It means that their behavior will be cheered instead of discouraged, and they will be praised for starving themselves and purging what they eat.

I don’t want to minimize the experiences that thin people have with anorexia, bulimia, and other eating disorders, but I do want to make sure that stories like mine are heard. I want fat women and men to have resources for treating eating disorders, rather than having people respond to their illnesses with more dieting advice or a pat on the back. I don’t want any more girls and women to feel like they should be OK with being seriously ill, just because they’re fat.
