What gets me about this whole skinny thing is how it is clearly not about attracting men. There are lots of guys who love breasts, lots of guys who love butts...but there aren't many guys who say 'give me a breastless, buttless, bony girl'.

True anorexia isn't about being skinny to attract a guy. It's a mental illness in which people have a distorted body image. Dieting to keep a modeling job isn't exactly the same thing, necessarily, if it's a volitional choice that you could stop if you wanted.

I took care of a 28 or so year old woman who had anorexia since 14 or 15. She died at 30 because her heart failed. She had a cane and some paralysis due to a stroke, she walked like an old woman and had heart problems(obviously from cause of death). All this was the effects of starving herself because she thought she was fat even though her bones protruded all over her body. She was always cold because her body could not keep itself warm. Everyday 3 times a day she was brought a tray full of things she said she 'might' eat and everyday she left almost all of it sit. We were lucky if she would eat part of the white of a hard boiled egg. Her parents where devastated because they did not know what to do , they had tried everything. It was not willful so much as she could not stop not eating. Anyone who claims this is a good thing is sick in the head. It is worse and kills faster than being overweight.

I agree with Scout, anorexia is a mental issue.

I agree with Miles, too, beating yourself black&blue; on a bag of bones isn't in most men's image of gettin' it on.

I have a friend which suffers from hormonal disease and he is kind of fat, like the guy in the last picture and has the same t-shirt. I think anorexia sux and that women are not sexy at all.
