Everyone knows that American girls have eating disorders. It’s no wonder that the models and movie starts wear size 0 pants, sporting their figures as if that is the goal of American girls: to be skinny and skinnier. To be skinny, American girls are either seeing themselves fat in comparison to a starving, bloated abdomen girl in Africa (i.e., anorexia), or they are putting their fingers down their throat to vomit the food they just ate (i.e., bulimia). Genes or hormones may play a role, and whereas once it was thought that family conflicts played a causative role, they are no longer thought to contribute to eating disorders.
On September 25, 2012, Lady Gaga shared her stories of both bulimia and anorexia, which can be seen here: Click Here. She shares photos of her body. And over a weekend in September 2012, she walked the city streets of Paris in a huge hot-pink and blue dress, and she tweeted to her fans: "And thank(s) to my fans who love me no matter what, and know the meaning of real beauty & compassion, I really love you."
Marilyn Monroe said, "To all the girls that think you're ugly because you're not a size 0, you're the beautiful one. It's society that's ugly." Quote on Goodreads
