Nina Power quoting Tiqqun: [Anorexia is] ‘the desire to free oneself from a body entirely colonized by commodity symbolism’.
Couldn't this also be a case of striving to fit the commodity? To fit into the very public, very visible "sample size"? Couldn't anorexia suggest there's no space for some figures, so why not become as "not-there" as possible? Or, scarier, couldn't anorexia suggest one has no right to occupy space?
