The Gender Bending the Rules Blogathon is Here!



Now is the time for all good men and woman (and vice versa) to come to the aid of their blogathon.




Yes, that's right folks.   The long wait for the "Gender Bending the Rules" Blogathon is over.  Over the coming weekend many intrepid bloggers will be coming to the fore with their take on some of the classic films in which the gender line is not so defined.   This page will serve as your guide to find these reviews, as well, my co-host Angelman, will also be helping you to keep up to date.  Keep coming back over the weekend to see who else is joining our fun trip.  And if you are a participant, you can leave your links in the comments below and we will get them up as soon as possible to the roster.
