Loads of Links: 8/27/12

via Snack Love (drool)

Study finds fat acceptance blogs can improve health outcomes. A quote from the article: “We saw there was a lot of opinion about the movement but very few people had actually studied it.” Surprise! People have opinions about fatness that are not rooted in fact; film at 11:00.

A personal essay on the outsourcing of garment production. The end of the article links to a list of made-in-the-US companies, but it’s important to note that this list may not be accurate, according to one commenter:

one of the apparel companies on that list that supposedly manufactures in the US paid the small designer label I work for to produce them 1000 pieces in China and slap on a Made in USA label

So there’s that.

Erika Moen on male privilege re: public interaction. Killing it, as usual. (Original [awesome] comic that started the debate by Melanie Gillman.)

+ Let’s Discuss the Merits of Anthropologie (The Clothing Store, Not the Discipline). Valuable points made about catalog lifestyles.

+ In case you haven’t somehow seen it, Kate Beaton’s straw feminists.

+ To promote her upcoming book, Relish, Lucy Knisley created Snack Love, where she does lovely illustrations of delicious-looking food. Is it lunchtime yet/is it time for Relish to come out yet? I look forward to accidentally smearing cookie butter all over the pages of my copy.

+ It’s been a while since I’ve participated in cosplay culture, but this collection of genderswap/alternative costumes from Comic Con makes me smile.

+ On that note, Cosplaying While Black also makes me smile.

+ “Don’t look past my disabled body–love it.”

+ I can’t remember if I’ve linked this here before, but Is This Feminist? makes me laugh for days.

+ Zoe Saldana, you speak the truth:

  1. The article on Anthro is hilarious! Going back to read the others now!

  2. Is This Feminist is hilarious. You always have the best links! So much good stuff out there that I only know about because of you :)

  3. Also The Row is missing from that made in the USA list. That’s why it’s like $900/shirt.
