Views On Eating Disorders It is utterly amazing how certain books can influence a readers point of view on a matter for discussion An excellent example is shown in Wendy Shalits A Return to Modesty Similar to other authors Shalit cleverly expresses her view on numerous subjects The awing focus of the book is the fact that she easily mentions topics that may seem indecent to many readers despite our present society A 23-year old discussing sex marriage adultery along with comparable themes may seem inexperienced to older critics yet understandable to younger ones Without a doubt the content of the book can attract disagreeing readers willing to oppose Shalits beliefs Shalit decidedly describes an often-misunderstood argument eating disorders However she seems to somehow imply a large view of feminism on the course of the problem Shalits view can somewhat be understood but having known a sufficient number of people with the disorders other much different motives come to mind The roots to the predicament are family media and depression Many aspects in a woman can make her feel self-conscious At a young age girls are expected to fulfill a particular image that is expected by society Even though times have changed Shalit explains how women continue to helplessly fall into situations that are due to their appearance From noticing college students make instant trips to the restroom after a meal to having a stranger ask her about a possible eating disorder Shalit acknowledges todays society Oddly enough Shalit believes that women make the turning point to anorexia andor bulimia in order to lose a womanly figure with the goal of becoming unattractive The authors point can be questioned For example many mothers demonstrate a yearning for perfection in appearance in front of their young girls By constantly mentioning how a girl is supposed to be beautiful a mother can brain wash a child making him or her worry about the effects of food
