The French are at it again.

o-ANOREXIA-ADS-facebookPARIS — In one of the most image-conscious cities on earth, France’s Parliament has moved to make it a crime to use anorexic models or encourage anorexia, as authorities try to crack down on the glorification of dangerously thin women. — nola.com

Seems to me people have a Divine Right to die for their art — if a model wants to starve herself for the sake of her appearance and profession, why should the government nose its way in? What happened to “You can never be too rich or too thin?

PigmanI know, I know — it sets a bad example. Kids, especially teenage girls, shouldn’t starve themselves to emulate super-skinny models. Like good Americans, they should play with guns instead, and pretend they’re super-heroes out to cleanse the world of infidels and others they objectify and don’t like. No, I don’t mean Pigman.

In fact, in America, the eating disorder of choice seems to be obesity, with special emphasis on pregnant moms. According to a recent study, over two-thirds of adults and about one-third of children in America now are overweight or obese. Not only does this prove dangerous for delivering Moms, the babies themselves are likely to develop obesity and other life-threatening disorders. Picture what it’s gonna be like sitting on buses and airplanes in 20 years.

Naturally, the medical profession is raising an alarm — seems they’re especially concerned for their own well-being:

For doctors, the issue has become an everyday challenge. In the last year alone, three of the doctors I work with have been significantly injured while treating severely obese women. One even dislocated his shoulder while performing a cesarean on a 400-pound patient. We recently had two patients with B.M.I.’s of 53 and 60 in labor at the same time. B.M.I.’s above 50 are now classified in a new category: “super-obese.” It is frightening to think that this might become normal.

eat-the-rich7None of this makes any sense. Food is a blessing and a necessary part of life, not a curse or a fetish. Salivating foodies with their food-porn are as twisted as pedophiles. The middle ground needs to be reclaimed. You can’t trust the food industry, governments, the medical profession, or fashionistas to make these decisions for you.

And remember, eating the rich is no solution.

    Quite likely the least responsible, most insanely wrong sentence I’ve ever read on the topic. Even for you, “Squathole,” this surpasses all sense and decency.

      Why, thanks Libby Rae! Considering the destructive bullshit you read (and put into practice for which you charge gigantic fees) regarding ‘accepting and embracing the fact that you’re grossly obese’ and demanding the world respect you for it — the language of Enabling — I’m pleased you regard that statement as “irresponsible.” It shows I, unlike you and your professional ilk, retain a modicum of common sense.

        When family member (tweener) started binge-eating she doubled body weight in matter of months We go to therapist specializing in eating disorders. Her advice: we all needed to respect girl’s integrity and choice and encourage her to love her own body, fat, thin, or in between! Stupidest advice I ever heard — but I had doubts when I counselor is 150 pounds overweight herself. We got girl out of there and into program that straightened her out in year and she back to sane eating habits. There’s many quackeries out there.

    Oh, yuk. That photo’s just sick — how on earth does anybody want to see models that look like 2 years in Auschwitz?

    been locked up with many nutbags with eating disorders but my favorites were the ones who would eat whatever you gave them including dirty sox and live insects although sometimes we had to pay them to do it or bribe them with cigarets and sometimes they’d eat them too
