Found this in a bathroom at my college. A lot of guys had eating disorders in football and wrestling at my school and even in the rec league. I remember guys taking laxatives before weigh ins even.

Male eating disorder awareness ~

Wrestling is infamous for that kind of shit. It’s one of the reasons my brother left the sport— his coaches were ENCOURAGING him to engage in unsafe behavior.

I’ve seen a lot of it the other way round, especially in rugby, I know several men who were encouraged to go to unsafe measures to gain weight.

Yes. ^^^ The masculinization of eating disorders. I knew some wrestling guys back in high school - it became this competition as to who could lose then keep of their weight the best. The guys would have competitions to see who could go the longest without eating, and if you lost, of course, you were a “pussy”
Thankfully a suspension went on while they reviewed these practices that were of course encouraged by the coaches.

Dido and the leader of the Trojans go to the same cavern.
Both Mother Earth and matron-of-honor Juno give a sign;
Fires flash, heaven is privy to the marriage,
And from the summit nymphs lament in song.
That day was the first cause of death and the first of calamities;
For Dido was moved neither by pretense nor by tradition,
Nor did she consider a secretive love:
She calls it a marriage; with this name she cloaks her guilt.

Virgil, Aeneid IV.165-172

Original: 
Speluncam Dido dux et Troianus eandem
deveniunt: prima et Tellus et pronuba Iuno
dant signum; fulsere ignes et conscius aether
conubiis, summoque ulularunt vertice nymphae.
Ille dies primus leti primusque malorum
causa fuit; neque enim specie famave movetur,
nec iam furtivum Dido meditatur amorem:
coniugium vocat; hoc praetexit nomine culpam.

When you say something smart and people are shocked

Well they should be shocked, look at her execution. Her hair should be tied back! That’s a fire and chemical hazard. And why is she swirling a beaker? She should be using an erlenmeyer flask. And where the hell are her gloves!?
