Digg!


Stop Myspace and other sites from displaying ads for dieting.
Target:Anyone who finds these ads offensive.

Sponsored by: AB AWARE
i find these ads offensive, because i run a site on myspace to help people with Eating Disorders and other things, i write blogs and post videos on this myspace. the people on this site are sometimes very fragile and even SEEING anything with a woman who they deem "skinnier" than they are will make them sink deeper into their dissorder. i find these offensive because people will and have gone to extremes to lose weight. and these ads, most of the time push them over the edge. or to try weight loss pills and end up OD'ing on them. or being admitted to the hospital, and i dont want to see them anymore.

  2. Signed. You know, ads promoting a *healthy* lifestyle (and associated body image) would be nice to see.
