Social sickness April 11, 2006

Posted by Winter in body politics, food.

Yet another survey telling us what we already know: very large numbers of British women worry about their bodies to a frightening extent. I would like to know a bit more about the group surveyed, but from the look of the magazine running the poll, I’d guess that they’re generally younger women earning a reasonable amount of money.

Will this crazyness continue until the majority of women become mentally ill in relation to their bodies? The kind of behaviours and thinking described in this article look pretty pathological to me.
