Drop It Like It's Hot

Hello everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation.  I hope that you gained as much as I did from it.  What makes Womanist Musings a great space is the varied topics.  As a Canadian, Black, heterosexual, cis gender, disabled woman, I am far from an expert on everything.  This is specifically why Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy.  If there is a topic that we are not discussing, feel free to send in a guest post.  Please include a three line bio and an image that you would like associated with your work.   The e-mail for the blog is womanistmusings (at) gmail..com.  The work can either be original or a link to your blog.   This blog works best, when many voices are speaking together in a fight for justice.

Below you will find a list of posts that I found interesting this week.  I am not necessarily endorsing the work or suggesting that the comment section of these pieces are safe, but I do think the work itself asks some very interesting questions.  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.
