There’s this idea, especially among people of color, that eating disorders do not affect us and is an affluent skinny, white girl issue. Aside from not being true, this type of thinking is dangerous and harmful to people of color living with an eating disorder. It creates additional barriers to recovery, and erases the experiences of people who don’t see themselves in that stereotype.
