Are YOU "pro-ana"?

Can I regurgitate a discussion?

There are so many new members here now, and I think it would be interesting to get a differant perspective on a 'hot topic' that really hasn't seen very much discussion.
I will certainly delete this if it is innappropriate.


Anyway, that discussion asks these questions (the bold questions are my own):

What is your view on the pro-ED movement? What are the positives and negatives? Can someone really be "pro-ED"?

Are YOU "pro-ed"?

Are you a member of pro-ed communities (or visit pro-ed websites)? If you are, how do you think they've affected you?

How would you define "pro-ed", or "pro-ana"?

Can a person be pro-ED and pro-recovery? What stereotypes do we have about the pro-ED movement. If you've noticed a change over the past year or two, what have they been?

What attracts people to them? Is it just having a "girl clique" to belong to, or is there something deeper and more meaningful?

Any other thoughts?

I think it would be interesting to see how responses differ in this more diverse group.
