Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone.  I wanted to say thanks again for your patience with the light posting.  My entire household is now sick and we are making ugly faces at each other.  We have yet to assign blame to the individual who brought this plague into our house.  LOL  Sunday is thanksgiving and there is some doubt as to whether or not we will even be able to taste our meal.

Once again my dear blog has suffered a cruel troll infestation.  These people do not argue in good faith.  Please try not to feed the trolls.  They need to find sustenance elsewhere.  I have had to do a lot of deleting and banning this week.  Please don’t be shy about reporting a comment I missed.  I don’t always catch them all and I do not want anyone fouling my space. Above all, Womanist Musings needs to be a safe space for those society has decided to “other”.

On Sunday at 8pm EST Monica of TransGriot and I will be interviewing Cara of Feministe and The Curvature, as well as Melissa of Shakesville, regarding our rape culture.   Here is a link to the show page.  Please feel free to call in or make use of the chat room. We will also be discussing the denial that has taken place since the arrest of Polanski.  I hope that you can join us live, but if not, I will put up the podcast for you to listen to on Monday. Allison McCarthy, our favourite Gus is taking the week off and will return for our next scheduled show.

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