The article, for the topic it conveys is entirely appropriate . Images evoke a sensitivity to those who are affected- "Eat Less" on a waif encourages those with eating disorders all the more, while likely encouraging those who eat too much to "eat more" for fear of looking like a waif. I mean, come on- Rebekah's argument and support of the claim is RIGHT ON! WHAT a silly National campaign- which is further supported by the fact that Urban Outfitters has retracted the image on their website. General nutritional guidelines that would change the eating habits of our 'super-sized' youth is an entirely different subject. Its one that I'm sure Rebekah would take on if given the opportunity.
