As you might recall when Tony was in the hospital, being given clothes when you are in a hospital seems to be a big prize for being good. I didn't get my clothes back for like a week. Nothing says "you are a mental patient, we want to keep you in that mindset" like having your individual identity taken away and given what equates to a prison uniform. /endrant

So, I haven't been in any sort of a long term psychiatric situation. My understanding is that there are often levels involved, and possibly points systems. Basically, if you show that you are being a good patient, taking your medicine, participating in therapy, etc, you get more privilege. This includes being allowed clothing, being allowed off the ward (to go smoking, etc). So to be reset at zero is.. harsh.

I may have mentioned it before, but I will restate it: the incidence of gay male anorexia is higher than that of any population group, according to recent studies to which I cannot find due to laziness. So accept my conjecture on good faith.
My point is, this is not a women's issue. Everyone has body images. The less normal you are, the further you tend to feel from it, and the problem compounds.

Lastly, no, Lexi has not magically gained a bunch of weight in frame 3, I just suck at art.
