Twisty reports on an unbelievable story in which the doctors in a mental hospital took a patient off of a clearly successful antipsychotic because it was making her fat when she had been soooo beautiful. As Twisty puts it, "in a patriarchy, a hot girl cannot be fat." Better that she be insane. They did eventually come around, but seem regretful, even though the patient is not at all upset by her new appearance. This makes me feel a bit ill.
