    The picture is beautiful, however the subject hardly looks anorexic. Am I missing something? I apologize if that seems rude, I just feel as if I missed something. Also, it may just be my personal opinion (feel free to tell me to shove it, I will not be offended), but I feel the tags seem to send a mixed message, I was an Anorexic Bulimic for several years who at 5/6" was hospitalized for being under 72 lbs, so I do not feel that the words beauty and anorexia should be in the same grouping, I just fear some of those children, as young as age 8 who may read this, may read the wrong thing. Either way, if that is you, you are quite lovely, I just feel very strongly about this and were I to do something others may view as a contradiction, I would ask that it be brought to my attention, especially with such a dire subject.

  • I understand what you’re saying and I appreciate your input very much! I didn’t mean to call anorexia beautiful, I just think the photo altogether is beautiful in a different kind of way. More of like, you may be suffering, but you’re still beautiful. You may not feel it but you are. Not the anorexia part. It’s so full of hate on the body and mind and such a terrible thing. I am sorry you had to experience such an awful condition and I hope that you are better now! Cyllan was at the time having issues with her body, and she wanted me to do something that kind of reflected that… not to get attention or anything but just because she wanted to have something as inspiration to change and make herself healthier. Glad to say she is doing very well now and I’m glad that we took these photos.
