Currently on Yahoo’s main page:
What?! Being thin isn’t the key to happiness? Controversial! Next thing you’ll tell me it’s not the ultimate indicator of moral uprightness, either. And then the universe will explode.
Btw, the article to which the story links is pretty good.* It’s clearly meant to be written in a way that speaks not only to people who are unhealthfully overweight, but people who are unhealthfully underweight, too, or destined to arrive there if they keep striving for thinness. Look at how much better advice is when predicated on general healthfulness and body acceptance: “Now it may seem like semantics but truly there is a big difference between looking at your body and all that distresses you about it, trying to figure out how you will shrink different body parts, and looking at your body while considering what it would do if you ate well, thought about yourself kindly, and exercised moderately.” Zany.
* In fact, it’s better than Yahoo’s cover bit, which pretty much manages to undermine the whole point with a picture of a skinny blonde. Which is not to say that there are no skinny blondes who have need for encouragement re: healthfulness and body acceptance, but instead to say that reinforcing the most obvious beauty standard while saying “You don’t have to meet any beauty standard to be happy!” is, ya know, dumb.
