 Karen Carpenter and Tracey Gold were my #thinspo. Digital mass media has made learning to be a better anorexic frighteningly easy.
Through magazines, academic journals and after-school specials, Gen X anorexics found their thinspo, but they had to work for it. Now, it's so easy to find, it's sick.
