I\’m afraid that you\’ve really rather confused me here over anorexia:
The real problem is that we live in a neurotic, miserable society with a deeply disturbed attitude to food, nurture and consumption, a society which teaches children, and particularly girls, that their growing bodies and normal desires are unacceptable and must be starved away.
The implication there is that society teaches young women that being young women, having feminine curves, is unacceptable. These are what must be starved away to return to a pre-pubertal state.
Yet the other 50% of your journalistic output is about how society sexualises young women, fantasises, drools, over the firm curves and chest fats of young women.
I can see that either could be undesirable, even disturbing and dangerous: I\’m just not sure how it\’s possible to believe in both.
Could you please advise?
