It is easy to say that eating disorders are disgusting and that girls and women should never come down to that, or even that body image shouldn’t be that big of a deal. To a 13-year-old girl though, it is everything, you’re impressionable and all you want are those friends. One might say that if they only care about body image then they shouldn’t be your friend, and although that is true, it is not thought about when you’re that age. Social status is everything to most girls that young.  Of course it can get extreme and when it comes down to eating disorders it is terrible.  So, we can sit here and say that women and girls should never resort to that, but how can we contradict what our judgements are portraying. When society judges these girls and wants them to be so fit and beautiful, then they shouldn’t be shocked when their criticism is the cause of all the pain.
