Response to cinematicdiversions (Original post)

Sat Jun 5, 2021, 09:17 PM

1. Horrible article

Indeed, depressed friends make it more likely you’ll be depressed, obese friends make it more likely you’ll become obese, and friends who smoke or drink a lot make it more likely you’ll do the same. The reverse is also true: You will be more studious, kind and enterprising if you consort with studious, kind and enterprising people.

The opposite of obese and depressed isn't studious and kind. It isn't one or the other. Obesity and depression aren't contagious. People who would abandon a friend because they're depressed and/ or obese aren't a friend. They're an asshole. The whole article reads like it was written by a person who only sees relationships as transactional. The pandemic isn't even over. People still need to heal. An article like this is the last thing anyone needed. Shame on the NYT for publishing this dreck.
