The Olsen twins and lingering ED stigmas

Collapse )

This article seemed to me almost the reverse of the normal hollywood view on eating disorders- the idea that people are instantly cured and back to normal. I think it could be good in that I'm all for kids learning about health and nutrition, but as most people don't fully understand EDs, I'm not sure if Mary Kate is a great role model. Do you think that this show would be a good or bad idea?

Do you think that if you chose to recover that people will keep the ED stigma about you, or will drop it?
