‘Cinderella Weight’ is a dangerous new diet trend Twitter is obsessed with, and it’s turned into a full-fledged panic
Yeah, please don’t try this
by Amanda Ross
You know, I really get the dieting thing. I'm definitely not as skinny as I was in high school, and I'd really like to looks like a lithe and even-stupider-than-I-am-now 16-year-old again.
But even my dumb ass is too smart for this scary new weight fad that's taking over teen Twitter.

Now, huge waves of girls and boys are obsessed with reaching their "Cinderella weight", a magic number said to give girls the proportions of the animated Disney icon. Yeah, not the live-action Cinderella starring Lily James that approximately 12 people and a bored movie theater worker saw. The animated one.

To get your "Cinderella Weight", you apparently:
1. Find your height in meters
2. Take the meter height and square it
3. Multiplying that number by 18
4. Convert back from kilograms to pounds
We tried it around the office. Eleni, who is 5'10", has a Cinderella Weight of 120 pounds. Caroline, a measly 5'3", should "ideally" weigh 101 pounds.
As for me, I'm 5'1" — maybe 5'2" on a good day — and have a Cinderella Weight of 94 pounds. Just in case that number didn't completely terrify you already, I wore a size 2 BCBG dress to my prom (that brand was cool then, trust me) and weighed like, 35 more pounds than my Cinderella Weight.
Unless Death Weight is the big next trend, I think we should sit this one out, y'all.

First of all, John McCain is in hell
by Amanda Ross
Death is awful, and I can't blame anyone for struggling to make sense of it. That's where the idea of an afterlife came from, right? Refusal to accept the nothingness waiting for us the moment our pulse stops? If it makes you feel better to imagine your grandma reclining on a cloud while the world…
