Our culture objectifies and over-sexualizes women in pervasive and profoundly demeaning ways. Our value as people, regardless of gender, has become linked with how young, thin, and attractive we are. It's a distortion so insidious it affects the way we view and talk about our own and other's bodies, our own and other's worth. In this barren societal landscape, is it any wonder eating disorders are so rampant? If we're really going to get to the other side of eating disorders, this toxic culture has gotta give.
