Drop It Like It's Hot

Hi everyone, I am still trying to catch up for taking a week off sick, and that is why this week's Drop It Like it's Hot is being published so late in the day.  Posting may still be a little light, as I get my sea legs again, but hopefully we will be running full speed ahead shortly.

I'd like to point out that Womanist Musings has an open guest posting policy. If you have something that you would like to share with the group, please send me an email with a link to your blog or your original work to womanistmusings (at) gmail (dot) com. I am also actively looking for new contributors to write about Class, Ageism and body image with a focus on fat and the politics of living in a fat body.  If that sounds like you, please send me an email.

Below you will find links to a few posts that I found interesting this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out. When you're done, don't forget to drop it like it's hot, and leave your link behind in the comment section.
