Instagram Promotes Eating Disorder Content

Honestly what doesn’t

In a time where being thin is being seen as

Being healthy

Not eating is being advertised

As a one-way ticket

To paradise !!

Everything about the content

Is designed to set you up

With that bad friend or relationship

That, if IRL, all of your friends

Would tell you to break it off.

Filters, pictures

Bloated lips and skinny hips

Instagram makes the decision

To profit off of your self hatred

Each time you engage with the idea that

Pretty and thin means

Healthier, better, more valuable

More desirable

More like what you wish you were,

Less like what you are, and

Nowhere near

How you should see yourself —

A funhouse mirror

Of self-disrespect.
