Eating disorders are a sad reality for many men and women, and the psychological and physical damage they cause is only exacerbated by our body image obsessed media. Even sadder still, there are communities online that glorify eating disorders. A visit to a couple of these websites illustrates the slippery slope from skinny-obsessed gossip blog to all-out eating disorder glorification. One such website,, got some serious web attention after their recent takedown of Kate Upton for being too big. SkinnyGossip carefully treads the line between standard bitchy gossip blog and pro-eating disorder polemic. Even further down the binge-eating rabbit hole are websites like which offer discussion threads where you can exchange "thinspirations" and hunt for a "binge buddy."
