Oh for sure. And I mean in the case of the family I'm talking about I locate the cause of family dynamic in the father, hands down, SO THERE'S ALSO THAT. (And actually while not universal in the case of other anorexics I know where I KNOW their families contributed or at least exacerbated like crazy, it's relatively FREQUENT that the root of the crappy family dynamic was pretty clearly in the dad: HE set the family Tone, and the worst the moms did was get swept along by it.)

I just sort of suspect that part of the dynamic in this specific case is that in addition to the Blame The Woman/Victim thing that totally goes on, that's running into and combining with the part where like, okay, no, more likely than not, family dynamic has a huge contribution in these cases and I myself have a knee-jerk scepticism, because I know that the family in question (in my case) would say exactly the same thing.

(And it's not because they're bad people: they're not, they're quite the opposite, it's just . . . welp.)
