Umm. Anybody want to weigh in on this?

Seriously. WHAT THE F...?!?! In what universe does a university have the right to demand that a student gain weight or be suspended? If they are concerned about her health.... Do they suspend students that smoke? Drink? Have unprotected sex? I am nearly speechless at this blatant abuse.

I can't engage on this topic without turning it into politics. So I'm out.

I am with you there, that is really odd. Who's business is it if you have an eating disorder on both sides of the scale (Anorexia\Bulimic vs Obese.) It seems like the more and more that we work on health(at least here in the USA) that if you are skinny you are "Anorexic" and if you are Obese\fat you are just "big boned." You can "offend" some one more by calling them too fat, but those people will turn right back around and say you are "too skinny." Pisses me off though that a University like Yale would try and do this.

She sounds like my sister sister-in-law. She can out eat me by 3 times and never be over 90lbs. Heck the day after having her babies she looks like she never was pregnant.

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

would they take the same approach with a morbidly obese student if they did not loose weight?

Okay. I feel like everybody here is missing the problem that Yale is attempting to address, which is that they are in fact responsible for her health while she is living there "under their care" meaning that if they are told that someone has a disorder, or that someone might, they are required by law to take care of the person in whatever way they see fit.

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.

good points

they have clearly not handled the situation well - if they had we wouldn't be discussing it
