The following text is the reply to a journalist’s request for an interview, sent by a research scientist from our team. ANAMIA is a research project about online communities of persons suffering from eating disorders. Often, researchers from our team are asked for interviews in the media. This is an essential part of science communication, insofar as it helps disseminate the results of our research to the general public. Yet, it can turn out to be problematic: eating disorders come with a fair amount of social stigma, and the risk of being misrepresented is an actual one. Scientists can rely on reporters’ professionalism for not being misquoted. But sometimes the context can distort the message. The genre of a TV programme, or the general tone of a newspaper can bias the message in such a way that, despite the accuracy of the quotations, the public is misled. These situations can be scientifically and ethically challenging for the researchers. In order to exemplify the issues at stake for our researchers, and in the hope of promoting critical thinking both in the media and in the scientific community, we have decided to publish the anonymized version of this letter.

Such a fucking good letter, I would highly recommend spending the 2 minutes it requires to read it. I’m so happy that there are researchers like those on the ANAMIA team.

Aside from the debates about animal rights, many vegans will find themselves countering ad hominem arguments by non-vegans. A few typical labels that many of us often receive are that we are “pretentious,” “elitist,” “pushy,” and “disrespectful” of others’ beliefs. While some vegans may be very…

Interesting points!
