NEDIC poster gets it wrong
The National Eating Disorders Information Centre (NEDIC) in Canada has just released a photo of their new informational eating disorders poster:
Aside from making EDs seem like a stupid teenage romance, it’s just…I can’t…WHAT THE HELL WERE THEY THINKING?
NEDIC said the point of the campaign was to get people talking. And I also realize that the poster isn’t geared towards people who know they have EDs. It’s geared towards the general public and people who think they might have an ED. Still.
For one, if you want to get people talking, let’s get them talking about the right thing. For another, people with EDs are your support base and annoying or otherwise pissing them off doesn’t strike me as a good business model.
There is just so much wrong with this, I can’t even begin.
