Neither physical nor phycological health are the domain of anyone other the person concernned and the health care professionals treating them. Anyone attemting to exact policy based on an unqualified unsolicited interest can find themselves in a legal mess.

The lone exception to this rule is "danger to oneself or others". This danger must be established by a qualified health care professional.

Yale has a top notch legal program. The administration shoul have consulted with them before threatening expulsion. This will end poorly for the university.

Am I saying they're right for forcing this girl to gain weight? no. Are the right to be looking out for their students? Yes. For example, if a college gets a phone call from someone that says "I think that so and so is a suicide risk" they are legally required to go get that person immediately and do everything in their power to make sure that person is not endangering themselves.

assuming that I just went full on babble mode, tl;dr they're not as in the wrong as you all seem to think, though they are screwing up. and YES if someone is morbidly obese, a college is required to work with that student, not just anorexic students.

Shipped price is valid to domestic buyers and will be USPS priority. International buyers are welcome, but will cover additional costs. Insurance costs are included. If you prefer an uninsured package, you the buyer will assume all risk once I ship.

they need her to grow bigger so that she will be too big for fellow depraved colleagues to rape, murder, and then stuff her body behind a wall

i think yale's been wanting to keep things "in order" that they don't really care about "you" anymore.

It was 10 years ago that I graduated, but I believe the school still has the same rules. Doesn't mean it never happens, of course...oh the shenanigans we used to get into.

Sad thing about the BMI dealio is that many doctors still go by it. I haven't had a physical in a while, but they still used that to classify me. It's unfortunate that it's still being acknowledged by the medical profession as being an accurate tool of diagnosis.

White people don't understand asians.

When my coworker's son was a baby, the pediatrician decided to run tests because they though he had jaundice. Didn't matter mom was Laotian, cause baby looked like a white kid with jaundice.

My Japanese neighbor was investigated for child abuse because the day care worker found bruises all over thier daughters butt. Took months before they accepted it was just normal asian blue baby butt. (mongolian spot)

forget ethnicity. women have different heart attack symptoms than men, and it's still not widespread knowledge... but everyone knows when a man's left arm hurts a heart attack is coming, and they assume that's the only thing to look for in anybody.
