PSA on Anorexia Nervosa

No one looks anorexic.

Anorexia is a mental illness that often has biological side effects.

Noticeable thinness neither excludes nor implies the possibility of anorexia.

The extremely emaciated white women pictured in sensationalist magazine articles with nasogastric tubes and failing organs are not representative of the illness and those affected by it as a whole; these images perpetuate the false idea that anorexia is a white woman’s disease, and that all people suffering from anorexia are visibly, deathly ill.

Anorexia affects cisgender women, cisgender men, transgender women, transgender men, agender persons, intersex persons, and otherwise gender non-conforming persons, children, teens, young adults, middle-aged adults, seniors, people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, and people of all socioeconomic statuses.

Anorexia affects the sufferer’s body based on that person’s unique individual biology (metabolism, chemistry, preexisting medical conditions, developmental maturity, natural set point, bone density, etc), behaviors, treatment or lack thereof, etc. The effects vary widely and are often not obvious to others, or even necessarily to the sufferer.
