Today, I discovered that my daughter refuses to eat, but not because she's anorexic. Apparently, her health class has learned about the digestive system and now she refuses to "take part in something so gross." FML

Those of you that think sex is gross, it think you may be doing something wrong. But I don't thing OP has to worry about her daughter having sex if she learns about what she would have to expel 9 months later.

70- it's called using protection...having sex doesn't automatically mean getting pregnant and having to "expel" a baby nine months later. And when you think about it, 28 is right. Sex is great (or it should be) but it's pretty gross when you think of all that bodily fluid and stuff...

All of you saying sex is gross; it's not. It's meant to be very beautiful and only between a man and a woman. It's the gift of reproduction from God. :)


99 - Don't shove your religion onto FML. I hope you're trolling because sex can be enjoyed between a man and a man, a woman and a woman, and a man and a woman. SEX HAS NO GENDER RULES; Not from society and NEVER from "god".


RaquelW maybe you should think before you comment. Just so you know, I have been having sex since long before you were born, and it has never been boring or gross. One of the purest forms of pleasure on this world.

Or she could be completely stupid and insane.... (sarcasm, trolls)

Nah, she'll snap outta it eventually. Probably the next morning when she wakes up and she's so hungry it feels like her stomach is about to eat itself. Am I the only one that happens to?

The word 'anorexia' means the absence of desire to eat. Therefore, the girl technically has anorexia. To be classified as anorexic though, there are other criteria that have to be filled.

#42 Just stop there. Skipping only one meal does not make you anorexic. People with anorexia fear eating too much, as it will result in weight gain, which conflicts with their body image. I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure people with anorexia skip a lot more meals than just breakfast. So to answer your question, no.


The medical term anorexia doesn't mean and ONLY mean anorexia nervosa, its an encompassing term that has several specific sub-diseases, like how a genus of animals doesn't describe a single species. You guys are thumbing him down because the medical definitions don't fit what you associate with "anorexia"?

Anorexia is the medical term for loss of appetite. Because anorexia and anorexia nervosa are used interchangeably its hard to make the distinction, especially because the literal translation of anorexia nervosa is not entirely accurate in accordance to the disease itself. But I think the term anorexic is generally used for anorexia nervosa so no, she's not anorexic but yes she may have anorexia if she lost her appetite because of how gross bodily functions are.

Full support????? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Someone doesn't have kids. That's just the kind of thing someone with no parenting experience says.
For your future kids sake, grow up a bit before reproducing.

Greenman, you have my full support, and I don't care how many thumbs down I get. There is a good chance OP's daughter is doing this for attention, so if you act supportive, she will likely hesitate. And if she is not doing it for attention, then her body will likely force her to eat in some capacity.

Oh, and I think greenman was joking anyway...

107- if she is so desperate for attention that she refuses to eat, she might have slightly bigger problems than encouraging her to stick with it will help.

"Mom, Dad, i learned something in health class so im not gonna eat anymore, ok?" Mom/Dad- " Ohhh honey what a fabulous idea! Go hungry for as long as you want, and hey while your at it, wanna help us get rid of all the food in the fridge??" .....

Damn it, 40, and I was in the middle of editing, so now we've all said "Damn it" (or some variation thereof) all redundantly! Curses! Thwarted again!!

What? Had she never noticed the stuff that comes out the other end before?

I'd think the explanation of what goes on in between would be helpful if anything, but it takes all kinds, I suppose.
