I agree with you up to the point that unatural thinness is not as as attractive as the person may feel it is....But, anorexia is an illness, which may be triggered by dieting to become thin to look good (as you say), but it can start from many other causes, like stress, peer pressure, depression. You can not label anorexics as those in the wrong because they look unhealthy and not nice to look at to the outsider. Once people have become anorexic, it has gone beyond dieting etc, it is an illness just like a cold or a flu and I think you are confusing people who want to loose weight ('u shudnt go diet crazy & all ') with those who have the illness anorexia, which is much more severe.
