Because I see the communities they're on.
And then I read the communities.
And they make me sad or cynical or angry.

"i just lost 5 more pounds .yay.

i started to cry and he was like lauren im just kidding i like your stomach but i still cant help feeling fat i want to be 115. that is my goal and i have 22 pounds to go.

That's from the houseofsins community. It's for people who are active in their "lifestyle" of eating disorders. Yeah, it's a lifestyle now apparently. It has 364 members.

Houseofsins is a scary place. I think you know why I'm a member.

Sometimes staring at the abyss will stop you jumping.

Yeah, that is creepy. I've never SEEN such a concentrated mess of poor English. I guess the starvation must be messing up their ability to use the language.

Okay, so it's a cheap shot. But... gah. Need to talk to somebody about this. Prob'ly Merlin, since I can't be online for long.

That place is pretty scary. I know I need to lose some weight, but looking at your body as the enemy like that is unfathomable to me. There is a post from one girl saying another one is fat because she is a size 3. That just seems so disconnected from the reality I live in.

And it is more frightening that it is so popular.
