There are very few diseases that can only be caught by men or women, but never both – and none of them, as far as I know, are mental in nature.

So even though it’s more common to hear and see women talking about their struggles with body image and eating disorders, men can and do fall victim to the same things.

If you don’t believe me, here comes Tumblr with the truth bomb – pictures included.

It began when one man posted a picture of his journey back from anorexia.

Some congratulated and said they understood…

But others seemed confused about a man claiming to struggle with anorexia.

Which is when Tumblr decided to take us all to school.

And now we’re all just a little bit smarter and more in the know!

What do you think? Have you struggled with this issue?
