Drop It Like It’s Hot

Thanks for another week of great conversation everyone.  This week to amuse myself, I decided to edit a few of the comments left by vile trolls on the blog by adding my own commentary to their comments.  As the owner of this blog, I reserve the right to delete your comment or alter it, if you decide to spread hatred on my blog.  I don’t care if you disagree with my thoughts or the thoughts of any other commenter, you will be respectful or you will lose your right to comment in this space.   I will not allow someone's life to be used as a negative descriptor, nor will I allow any kind of hate speech in my space.  Womanist Musings was created solely for the hope of enlarging conversations about marginalized bodies.  Sometimes this means that your privilege is going to get checked but retaliation in the form of demeaning another will not be tolerated.  If you cannot disagree respectfully, then this is not the place for you.

Below you will find links to posts that I found interesting this week.  I have not read the comments on these posts, so please read them at your own risk.  When you are done showing these bloggers some love, don’t be afraid to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
