Renee, You Go Girl!

Blogging is hard. Serious, thoughtful blogging can be taxing. You do as much research as for an academic paper, but get little validation, no credit, and often, harassed for your trouble. What Renee of Womanist Musings is dealing with right now is a prime example.

And it’s bullshit.

She’s a good, devoted writer. Researching and writing posts for the world to read, and for the community to discuss, and doing it regularly is a feat. She deserves credit for that. Renee also deserves credit for being a good writer–giving thoughtful posts, some serious, some passionate, and some lighthearted.

ONTD members should be ashamed of their behavior, and of their harassment. If they want to behave childishly, they should keep to mocking one another’s icons (and spelling) in the traditional ONTD LJ way, on their own forum. Swamping someone else’s space, and flooding it with vitriol, is childish, rude, and hateful. Renee, nor her readers, are looking for their petty commentary.

Fortunately so, the comments are shut down on those posts. But here, I want to speak up and vocalize my support for Renee and Womanist Musings. It is a wonderful blog, and I’ve learned many things from Renee in the months I’ve been a reader. Bloggers don’t get enough thanks for what they do, and especially not those who dare to speak out against the kyriarchy.

Kudos, Renee.
