This Thursday at the Night Vale Public Library is the twice-annual Cleaning of the Books. The Sheriff’s Secret Police Super Secret Special Forces Unit will be on hand to subdue the librarians, who regularly attempt to not only undermine our city with dangerous books, but also sink their sharp claws and pincers into library visitors before flying them off to eat or toy with or whatever it is they do to their victims. Welcome to Night Vale, episode 54: A Carnival Comes to Town (via the-librarians-of-night-vale)

I’m doing a class on consent in the library. I’m planning on discussing database licensing and usage policies, our code of conduct, borrowing policies, special policies for borrowing equipment, a brief intro to EULAs, privacy and USAPatriot Act…
The class is an hour, part of a freshman seminar exploring consent in many areas.
Tumblarians, what are your thoughts? Can you think of anything else? Do you have anything you’d add?

Highlighted passages from a copy of Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own,  belonging to G. B. 1981, that I purchased from Goodwill. 
I hope G.B. has a better opinion on women now.

What happened to me was not an occupational hazard of feminism. It’s an occupational hazard of being a woman. Men’s bodies are not used as weapons against them, and shame is a language that women have learned from birth. We are told that sex is something that can hurt us, that we have to constantly be on the defensive lest we attract negative attention. If we are criticized or attacked, we are asked what we did to deserve it.
