Drop It Like It's Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for a great week of conversation.  At this time I am going to ask once again that guest posters receive the respect that they are due.  Even if you disagree with what they have to say, attacking them instead of engaging with the ideas that they brought up will not be tolerated. There is a comment policy at the top of the blog and I will not hesitate to enforce it by deleting comments and banning people if necessary.  There is a lot of love that goes into the work performed here and I will not have that disrupted by narrow minded people who feel threatened.

This is your weekly reminder regarding guest posting here at Womanist Musings.   An open guest policy exists so that we can broaden the conversations that occur here, and so if you have a topic that you believe we should be discussing please send me either a link to your blog or an original piece via e-mail to womanistmusings[at]  Please include a small three line bio and an image that you would like associated with your work.

For those of you that missed the announcement, I would like share with you my latest endeavor.  Holly Ord of Menstrual Poetry and I, have started a blog called Women's Eye on Media.   The goal of the blog is take a womanist/feminist lens to examine the media.  We will look at television shows, movies, books, music and anything that catches our fancy. It has a slightly different tone than either of our own home blogs, but it has quickly become a place where we are free to release some tension and have a few laughs.  Please stop by and check it out. You can follow us on twitter or check out our facebook page.   If you are a lover of pop culture, this is the place for you.

I didn't get as much reading done this week, but I still happen to think I came across a few very interesting posts. 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.
