Instagram Announces New Features to Help Support Users Affected By Eating Disorders

Instagram is launching new features to help support users on its platform who may be affected by negative body image or an eating disorder, the company has announced. Previously, Instagram had limited its policy to obscuring content that may trigger users suffering from an eating disorder, but the new policy adds to this by aiming to surface more expert-backed resources when people search for content related to the issues. While we don't allow content that promotes or encourages self-harm a...

This Week In Trailers: Run Hide Fight, Go/Don’t Go, Music, The Night

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we see the frontrunner for the worst trailer this decade, visit the afterlife and then come back to the real world, hear the echoes...

Warum die Darstellung von Bulimie in The Crown gleichzeitig so wichtig & problematisch ist

The Crown S4. Picture shows: Princess Diana (EMMA CORRIN). Achtung: Der folgende Artikel enthält Spoiler für die vierte Staffel von Netflix’ The Crown! Die vierte Staffel von The Crown steht ihren Vorgängern in Sachen Drama und Spannung um nichts nach. Und obwohl die Serie sicher nie versucht hat, seichte Unterhaltung zu liefern, lässt sich kaum leugnen, dass sie wohl noch nie finsterer war als jetzt.  Staffel vier beginnt in den späten 1970ern und rückt die mitunter berühmt-berücht...

Neda Agha-Soltan’s Blood Stained the Ground Where Iranians Protest Today

Why Women in Recovery Must Combat the Diet Culture

Diet culture is insidious. We spend our lives obsessed with our bodies — always wishing for a smaller shape, scrutinizing the size of the portions on our plates, and unscrupulously comparing ourselves to thinner people. It’s damaging because it leads us to equate our worth with our appearance. For people in recovery, that is especially harmful. We experience physiological changes quickly — including weight gain — once we find recovery, and we can often leap to the assumption that we have a food ...

Ramadan reminds BMBs to pray for their families

International (MNN) -- Ramadan – a holy month of fasting observed by millions of Muslims worldwide – is more than halfway over.

As explained here by Prayercast , fasting (sawm) practiced during this annual observance is the fourth pillar of Islam: Ramadan is a focused time of drawing closer to Allah – to let the hunger pangs serve as reminders of a need for God. It is also a time of “reformatio...

I Believe It’s Possible to Fully Recover from an Eating Disorder

When I first started struggling with food and body image at eight years old, I was convinced it would be a lifelong struggle. My days were spent getting on and off a scale more times than anyone could imagine and counting out my cornflakes before I’d even think of eating them. I felt that I was destined to be bound by my eating disorder forever. However, at 22 years old, I am fully recovered from anorexia. There is some controversy in the mental health world about whether full recovery from a...
