Jezebel responds to the Daily Mail’s* latest joyful piece of science reporting about a study that’s found women think being skinny is better than finding love.

*No, I’m not linking to the Daily Mail article because I don’t want to give them any traffic. Look it up if you insist on increasing their audience and helping them earn more money – but wouldn’t you rather read the original academic paper than their spun version? Even if it does contain lines such as “The evidence indicates that people who consistently prioritize non–zero-sum altruistic goals or family goals are more satisfied with life than people who prioritize goals relating to their own careers and material success.” Or to paraphrase, money can’t buy you love.
