No. I think a lot of people look at pro-anna sites at first because they are so hidden from the public eye and they offer an escape. Though most if not all people who end up with anorexia are looking for an escape, control, and to be happy with who they are. I think Pro-anna can lead to anorexia as these sites make it seem like starving yourself is not a big deal and "its a choice". This is wrong and I personally disagree with the message pro-anna as people who are pre-disposed to anorexia can end up with it from these messages.
Just remember that anorexia is a psychological disorder and isn't something anyone who has it wants. Anorexics what to be happy with who they are, in control and escape from the sadness in the world. They become addicted to this and loose everything they were working for, and still can't stop. They see themselves as less attractive than they did before, and put more stock on being thin. Despite the fact they are wasting away. They loose the control of what they eat, cause it becomes a strong struggle between there body pushing for food and their minds pulling them away. Even after making a concious decision to eat it can still be too hard sometimes. And they loose all the joy from their lives because they don't often even want to go out because they might have to eat or they are to constantly having to think about food, they are constantly cold, hungry, in pain. Anorexia makes it much harder to rationalise things and thoughts that may seem sensible and not at all unusual to an anorexic may seem insane to someone else....its all happened to me personally. Pro-anna is pro all this, and no one should have to go through this.
I hope this will stay in your mind if you continue to read pro-anna
