LiveJournal's Pro-Anorexia Groups
In case you're not aware, there are many, many pro-anorexia sites on the web. These sites see anorexia as a lifestyle, not an eating disorder, and offer support for people who are interested in it.
Putting aside the lifestyle argument for just a moment, you might have heard that LiveJournal - the mega huge journal hosting site - recently came under fire for deleting a bunch of journals with pornographic fanart of (allegedly) underage Harry Potter characters. Lots of fire.
In turn, people went through LiveJournal's terms of service with a fine tooth comb and found this clause:
The LJ TOS claim that journal content cannot "Promote or provide instructional information about illegal activities, promote physical harm or injury against any governmental entity, group or individual, or promote any act of cruelty to animals."
That said, some of those folks harmed by the Potter sweep and others called out these pro-ana communities as being harmful to people. LiveJournal's official response was, uhm...
I've read many many of these communities. It's sad, I know it is. But it's not illegal to aspire to be thin. It's not against the ToS to give people bad advice.
The response also notes that the "line" (to pull a post/community), "is when content is specifically instructing or inciting self-harm." I'm kind of unable to see how supporting anorexia as a lifestyle isn't that.
As Meiran, who tipped me to this, put it, "I'm so disgusted by this I can't even think straight. This is how far our society has gone? Where anorexia is acceptable and no longer harmful because it leads to that holy grail of thinness?" (And yes, I realize this isn't a straight on pro-fat post but felt it'd be worthy of discussion here - Meiran's comment particularly.)
