There seem to be two kinds of disorders - ones chiefly stemming from societal pressures and the other from a variant of body dysmorphic disorder.
Most anorexics actually fall into the latter category - these are the people (men and women) who suffer and die from the disease. Their predisposition to hating their bodies (and indeed inability to even view themselves realistically) is intensified by societal pressure, not caused by it.
People like Lohan, however, are the former - her unrealistic view of her own body comes not from an internal disorder, but one imposed on her, so that she has, in effect, caught Body Dismorphic Disorder from popular culture. She was probably predisposed to it, being an attention whore (and yes, having had three eating disorders, getting attention is a factor), and had that predisposition amped up to a, um, disposition once inside holywood's pressure cooker.
I just hope she goes back to being normal and fucked up and hot.

I think the Lohan type is what I was getting at. I'm not even saying there's anything wrong with wanting attention. I'm not judging anorexia or bulimia even. I'm just saying that there has to be a factor in there. Its sort of like how people say rape isn't about sex... but obviously, there is a sexual component and I think that needs to be addressed. I just don't believe that Lohan's problems are completely internalized to control issues and have nothing to do with a desire for attention from others.

And yeah, normal, fucked up and hot would be a good mark for her to reach for.
