If you see a news agency, media outlet or blogger that actively uses thinspirational / emaciated images in their sites despite being told that this is a problem, feel free to mention them here. We can compose a watch list here and decide if there's any way to resolve the problem and encourage more ethical graphics use.

I actually go beyond that, on myspace you can flag something as "inaproprate" - and I do!

I wrote to mamavision half a year ago about how our approaches differed - how the most noticeable difference was her use of thinspo over and over - and she never wrote back.

some people like to dig their head in the sand and pretend that what they do and say doesn't effect others negativly. She said she once had an ED, I often wonder if part of hers lingers in the form of her blog.

I'm sorry... I hate Mamavision. I think she's just all about herself, whereas people who really care about women and eating disorders are about the cause.
