Voo Doo Science

When I was a psychiatric nurse I spent nearly twenty years taking care of eating disorder patients. It is not so much one disease as a cluster of related diseases. And this guest of Laura's sounds like she's unable to understand or appreciate the complexities of psychiatric illnesses. No one understands what causes eating disorders. But it is commonly accepted that the disease begins long before the teen years. And her mumbo jumbo about having an authentic relationship with your body is just plain nutty as an answer to the problem of eating disorders. Laura's attitude of respect for the kid's basic worth would be much more likely to prevent an eating disorder than anything her guest suggests. This is just another not-quite-subtle attack on childhood sexuality of the kind that lefties have long used to breakdown the the pillars of society.
