Media Disorders

Reports from the International Committee for Stating the Blindingly Obvious suggest that media sexualisation of young girls isn't very good for, err, young girls. Try to contain your surprise and amazement.

When I was fifteen and rapidly developing anorexia nervosa I can remember very consciously thinking that adult women were treated like pieces of meat and I didn't want to be treated like that so I would keep my body super-thin and child-like. In wasn't a question of media influence, it was a clear thought-out decision. And these were the days before Lad Mags, the situation is a lot worse now.
