Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for participating this week.  Many of you made some very interesting commentary that really challenged some of my ideas and for that I am truly grateful.  It is my hope that Womanist Musings continues to be a learning experience for us all.  Thanks to all who guest posted here this week.  Please keep in mind that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy, simply e-mail me your cross post or original guest post.

This week Monica, Allison and I will be interviewing Dr. Susan Stryker, historian and author of the Transgender History.  Allison wrote a great review, for those who are not familiar with her work.   This will be a great show for those hoping to learn some great 101 information as well as for those who are interested in leaning more about issues of oppression within the community. We will look at feminism, historical figures, basic terminology, current struggles and past victories.

image The show will be August 2nd at 8pm EST and can be found here live on Blogtalkradio.  The call in number is (347) 326-9452.  Monica, Allison and I look forward to taking your questions live.  For those that are unable to listen to the show I will post a link so that you will be able to listen to the recorded broadcast.

Below you will find links to some great posts that I can across this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.  When you are done don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
