Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone thanks for another great week of conversation.  Once again we had a small troll infestation however, I believe that is the cost of daring to challenge the false social constructions under which we live.

On Sunday at 4pm Monica of TransGriot and I will be appearing on The Best Of What Tammy Said to talk about black femininity: how it is defined, how it is marginalized, stereotypes, appearance, sexuality etc.,  Be sure to tune in what I am sure it will be an hour of really good conversation.  Check us out at Blogtalk Radio.

The latest instalment of the WOC of and ally blog carnival is up at Tell It WOC Speak.  I apologize for the  late posting but it has been a rough week.

As per usual below you will find the links to a few of the great posts that I discovered this week please stop by and check them out and when you are through don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
