Train of Thought

 

 

 

Her memory’s just like train tracks,
Winding in amongst my hair,
Stumbling all around my thoughts,
Without a purpose or a care,

Every time I try to make her go,
Standing right in front of me,
She’s laying ties all through my mind,
Making sure she never leaves,

    .. ..

“Won’t you buy a ticket baby?
Won’t you board my train of thought?
It travels right inside your room ,
 to the places you’ve forgot”

.. ..
There are a couple stops along the way,
to her bed and to her heart,
But she promised not to let me stay,
And it tears my world apart,

The letters in her name,
Keep on spelling out her sighs,
And as I take this troubled train,

All is in the color of her eyes

Want some thinspo on your way to work? Well now you can have it! With ads that proudly state “YOU CAN NEVER BE TOO THIN!” and “TASTES AS GOOD AS SKINNY FEELS!” stamped in large letters.

How low with advertising executives go? Shouldn’t this be common sense that messages such as the ones featured in these ads can seriously damage a persons thinking process and mental state? Imagine all the people who have normal thoughts about their body, maybe they are a bit overweight but they don’t let that ruin their day, instead they focus on the important things: my family is there for me, i have friends, i have a good career, i am smart, i am happy despite my weight, I am alive and grateful. Then one day they have a bad day, are walking down the street and see these ads. Then the next time they have a bad day they see these ads again… eventually the message will start sinking in: you won’t have a bad day if you’re skinny…

And imagine the messages it sends to children. Skinny is good. Fat is bad. Just recently I heard that Disney released a campaign/attraction where fat/obese people were advertised as VILLAINS. Imagine a larger child walking into that attraction and leaving in tears because he/she got messages that they are a bad person. How radically disgusting is that? (Check out the last image for Disney’s campaign)

It’s as if these advertising companies did their research on a pro-ED website. “Tastes as good as skinny feels” is EXCRUCIATINGLY close to “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” “You can never be too thin!” Do these sound familiar to those of us who are familiar with the pro-ED community? How despicable.

Eventually, when I get back to school after being on medical leave for 2+ years for an eating disorder (amongst other things), and I graduate from my graphic design studies, I hope to work in the field and I hope to educate people on the damage they are causing. None of this is okay. You might be making a memorable ad, but at the cost of potentially damaging the mental and physical health of others.

Fuck, man.
