Okay so we're all human, but this thought always occurred to me when I see female students in school preoccupied with having a slim body or just obsess about looks in general. Don't you think that people should just accept ones appearance so that everyone shouldn't have to worry about their looks? First argument is only to accept.

People are so obsessed with being skinny because they all think it is the vision of good health. Though young women and even young men are hurting themselves so badly to accomplish that little waist, or the "thigh gap". Bulimia Nervosa, Anorexia Nervosa, Binge Eating, Anorexia Athletica, Over Exercise, Overeating, Night Eating, Orthorexia Nervosa, and EDNOS are just some of the ways people achieve their skinniness, but at a high price... their life.

Dear opponent, I guess you.. accepted.

I agree that people will go to the extreme in order to fulfil their desired self-image, but if people don't actually judge on looks and find what's within the exterior, these perilous methods of weight loss attempts wouldn't even be initially created.

these disorders are bad. they can cost people their lives. is that really a price people are willing to pay? i agree with one of the other people who said we should just accept everyone the way they are that way people wouldn't feel the need to harm themselves.

Are you saying that people shouldn't be obsess with appearances, and therefore on the same term agreement as I am?
Yes, people do get distracted with looks, but from your statements, it looks as though we are in accordance of the same conclusion. :D

Everyone should be obsessed with being healthy. Wrong diet to make one skinny is just as destructive as wrong diet that makes one fat.Both are life choices.

Some people have an eating disorder, and cannot help but feel that they NEED to get skinny. Most of the time, it isn't free will, they just can't stop thinking about it.
