Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello everyone, thanks again for the wonderful conversation this week.  This week,  Natalie Wilson posted her first article here at Womanist Musings.  Her work will be featured here every two weeks, in a column called Monstrous Musings.  

I have struggled recently writing the blog because I feel that while I am passionate about so many things, my voice cannot and should not be representative of the various marginalized communities.  I know that many view this as a blog about race, however; my intent is to have an intersectional blog.   It is truly my belief that all oppressions are linked and we cannot possibly fight one without fighting them all.  To that end, I have decided to open my space.  Over the next few weeks, I will be adding different reoccurring columns to the blog.  Each person will add their unique voice and their unique experience.  I ask that you treat them as respectfully as you have me and welcome them into our space.  I say our space because even though I do the majority of the writing here, Womanist Musings is a community which could not exist and thrive with the contributions of everyone. 

The Womanist Musings Podcast returns this week with fencer Dawn Wilson to discuss sports and the trans community.   The show will air live on Sunday at 8pm EST.  You can listen live here.  The call in number is (347) 326-9452
