Here’s the first few lines 

Mutha’ Is Half a Word: Intersections of Folklore, Vernacular, Myth, and Queerness in Black Female Culture is about the uncensoring of Black women who laugh out loud, curse, sit with their legs open, and selfishly act on their desires. It is about tomboys, not-so-nice girls, and unwifeable women. It looks at the constructions of Black female subjectivities cognizant of autonomous sexual desires. How do Black women use culture to explore sexual desire that is spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, and fluid so as to avoid splits or binaries that can freeze Black women’s radical sexual subjectivities?
