Stemming off of the last post about mothers and feminism...

I once read in an article that the myth that eating disorders are caused by a controlling mother and absent father has been disproven. I was surprised when i read that, because while i certainly don't think that that's the only cause of an eating disorder, it certainly might play a part.

First off, is there anybody else here who's had an absent or mostly absent or nonexistent father? Anybody else who had a controlling mother? Do you think that this contributed to you developing an eating disorder? How did it affect any attempts to recover? Any other thoughts?
