the stereotype of beauty is being skinny…
eating disorders are severe disturbances in eating behavior characterized by peroccupation with weight concerns and unhealthy effort to control weight. the vast majority of cases consist of two sometimes overlapping sydromes: anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa.

anorexia nervosa involves intense fear of gaining weight, disturbed body image, refusal to maintain normal body weight, and dangerous measures to lose weight. two subtypes have been observed. in restricting type anorexia nervosa, people drastically reduce their food intake, sometimes literally starving themselves. in binge-eating/purging type anorexia nervosa, individuals attempt to lose weight by forcing themselves to to vomit after meals, by misusing laxatives and diuretics, and by engaging in excessive exercise

both types suffer from distrubed body image. no matter how frail they become, they insist that they are too fat. their morbid fear of obesity means that they are never satisified with their weight. if they gain a pound or two, they panic. the only thing that makes them happy is to lose more weight. the frequent result is the relentless decline in body image; people who are entering treatment for anorexia nervosa are typically 25-30% below the normal weight. because of their disturbed body image, individuals suffering from anorexia nervosa generally do not appreciate the maladaptive quality of their behavior and rarely seek treatment on their own. they are typically coaxed or coerced into treatment by friends or family member who is alarmed by their appearence.

anorexia nervosa eventually leads to a cascade of medical problems, including amenorrhea, loss of menstrual cycles, gastronintesinal problems, low blood pressure, osteroporosis, and metabolic disturbances that can lead to cardic arrest or circulatory collapse. anorexia is a serious illness that leads to death in 5-10% of patients.

bulimia nervosa involves habitually engaging in out-of control overeating followed by unhealthy compensatory efforts, such as selfinduced vomiting, fasting, abuse of laxatives and diuretics, and excessive exercise. the eating binges are usually carried out in secret and are followed by intense guilt and conern about gaining weight. these feelings motivate ill advised strategies to undo the effects of overeating. however vomiting prevents absorption of only about half of the recent consumed food, and the laxative and diuretics have negligible impact on caloric intake, so individuals suffering from bulimia nervosa typically maintain a reasonably normal weight. medical problems associated with bulimia nervosa include cardic arrythmia, dental problems, metabolic deficiencies, and gastrointestinal problems.

obviously bulimia nervosa shares many features with anorexia nervosa, such as a morbid fear of becoming obese, preoccupation with food, and a rigid maladaptive approaches to controlling weight that are grounded in naive all-or-none thinking. however the sydromes also differ in crucial ways. first and foremost, bulimia is a much less life-threatening conidition. second, although their appearance is usually more normal than seen with anorexia, people with bulimia are much more likely to recognize that their eating behavior is pathological and are more likely to cooperate with treatment

so where in the torah, the bible, or the qur’an does it say that fat people are ugly or skinny people are beautiful? thin is not the new beautiful. i hate it when people think like that. young women are comparing themselve to the girls in the media. otherwise they wont get men to love then. look at queen latifah, shes big and beautiful and a successful woman.

beauty should come from within because, as i said earlier looks fade very easily. we dont have to look a certain way to be beautiful because we are all beautiful in our own way. i think people who are anorexic and bulimic should try to focus more on their intelligence and kindness because in the end only those two things will matter more, much, much more than beauty.

“in the end, only kindness matters.”

i think islam is the most misundrstood religion in the world
not just by non muslims… but by muslims as well

many of the information about islam is based of what they see on television and in the movies
and many muslims are born into this religion without anyone really explainin it to them…
and unfortunately, their actions and behavior reflects their lack of understanding…

and finally you have people who twist the verses of Qur’an in order to spread their hate

the end result: a lot of confused people and a lot of confusion on what islam really teaches…

prove to me that this book is perfect… just like the Creator…
otherwise if the book even has one error… it proves its been written or editted by man…

today if you watch tv long enough, you will believe its a religion of fanatics…
where actions are not based on reason or rationality…
rather, its the exact opposite!

islam is very comprehesive, very practical….
in fact, when it comes to discuss the extistence of the Creator,
islam teaches you to think and reflect
to obverse the world around you…
because when you start investigating you realize how complex things are….
and though our human experince, we realize that complex thing just don’t come out of nowhere….

even though you dont see the engineers and the builders of the buildings…
it doesnt mean that they dont exist…

you get an idea how intellignence of the the creator, just by checking out his creation
the amazing thing is that all these man made structures are simple when you compare it to a thing such as a living organism…

1400 years ago, it was impossible for anyone to have this accurate information…
especially when these things have been discovered in the past century…

and the Qur’an challenges you to write a book like it, if he is in doubt that this book is from the Creator,
to prove that this book can not be written by a human being….
so many have tried, all of them have failed…. and many of them ended up becoming Muslims…

keep in mind that the meaning of Qur’an translated from the is not the Qur’an
any translation is a mere attempt to translate it…

these days, you see people taking verses of the Qur’an and twisting them to try to fool the people
but in reality, they are only fooling themselves…

yes there are gonna be people who are like sheep and they wont think…

islam is also colorblind, so theres no race, color, culture that makes one superior over another…
not even muslims have a free ticket to paradise…
each muslim will be judged by their intentions and actions…

The Concept of “Emo”

Posted in attacking emo, emo, emotional, ignorance, ignorance of people, intelligence, judging other people, judging people, media, standing out, stereotypes, stereotypes of emo, the concept of emo with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2008 by sweetangel16175

“Emo” is short for emotional
There’s nothing wrong with being emotional…
If that’s who you are, then be proud…
You stand out…. That’s all you do….
You don’t cut…. That’s only what the media says…
This society doesn’t work with emotional
They work with intelligence…
And the media doesn’t want people to stand out
That’s why they attack you…. And label you “emo”
So there’s nothing wrong with being “emo”
If you are emo, flaunt it and just don’t care!
