Validation in the Face of "It's Just a Phase, She'll Grow Out of It."

I loved this video. I think that people in general, without even knowing if others have an ED or not like to think it is just a phase for ease of thought and so that they don't have to branch out and support people over yet another issue? I hate how the media makes an ED seem so trivial, because they are convincing the people who NEED TO BE EDUCATED. I understand that it is hard for family members and friends to accept what is going on, because the behaviour seems 'strange', which.. it is(!), but I think that giving a general message to the public about how an ED isn't 'legitimate' stops people getting the support they need thanks to preconceived ideas.

I don't know, I think it just really grinds on me.
