Where You Ladies Get Your Thinspiration

So here is a look at the pro-ana and "thinspo" Tumblr communities! This is a thing to know about, the young ladies who in varying ways crave being tiny, but please note our official position on food and body size is "we are in favor of people eating the hell out of food all the time and enjoying it." BRB, gonna get some ribs and celebrate my real-size body.

David Karp reports that he finds these sites "super servicey".

I follow a lot model and fashion blogs and whenever I see a particularly bony model I click on the "notes" to see how many of the blogs that "liked" that particular photo are thinspo tumblrs. You can usually tell by the names, which have some variation of "bone" or "skinny" in the title, or by the added commentary. With all the handwringing over the use of Facebook and chat rooms by unmonitored minors, one wonders where the parents of these teenage girls are when they're tending to these websites (and yes, i'm assuming they're run by teenage girls based on the language used in their comments)

God help us when the rest of the internet finds out about 4chan's affinity for chubbies.

I was holding out for a "gonna get a McRib" lead-out but, whatever.

So the Daily will have groundbreaking stuff! Thank god – I figured it'd be the same tired stories on a new platform.

and I'm really number 83 or something!

"I believe food is meant to be for survival, not for pleasure," said a completely misguided teen blogger who's obviously never eaten a perfectly cooked filet, washed down with vintage zin and followed by creme brulee.
