but please don’t think me not following you back means i hate u 5ever and that u can never inbox me or reply to my posts or follow me on twitter or something b/c that is not what it means at all
Just gonna put this here.
Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.
Male eating disorder awareness ~
Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.
I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.
Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.
My brother was anorexic on and off for years. People generally think that eating disorders don’t effect males, but they do, and a lot more than they think.
Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.
THIS HAPPENS TOO MUCH, IT NEEDS TO STOP!
i love the Women Against Feminism that are like “I dont need feminism because i can admit i need my husband to open a jar for me and thats ok!” cause listen 1. get a towel 2. get the towel damp 3. put it on the lid and twist. BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce
I just want everyone who reads this to understand that the op does not mean that feminists think that women should all get divorced or stay single. They just mean to show that you are capable of just as much as any man.
I made this blog in hopes to gain awareness for boys with Eating Disorders particularly as well as self harm, suicidality, anxiety, depression, and so on. Chances are if you aren’t apart of any of these communities you probably don’t even realize there are a handful of males struggling every day. It’s sad too because lots of us go misdiagnosed and unnoticed even by professionals simply because it’s rare to see boys that suffer with these illnesses. If you could take two seconds to blog this (even if it’s not your blog type) so other boys out there can see this and perhaps bring a smile to their faces. Even if it’s just for a moment to know there’s others out there and I’m working hard to make this known. Thank you.
This is pretty cool that he’s doing this, so please go check out his blog and spread it anywhere you can! It’s not my “blog type” but I believe it’s important.
