Such behavior can lead to becoming underweight and malnourished. #orthorexia_nervosa

Coprolalia Part 2: Coping With Coprolalia NeurologicallyGif.... Children with coprolalia know what they are saying (or doing in the case of copropraxia) is socially unacceptable. That is how they were drawn to learn it. As a matter of fact, the more they understand the behaviour is unacceptable and the more unacceptable it is, the more they will be driven to do it.
