Sexual harassment is an issue with any profession, and librarianship is no different. All of us – women, men, transgender, everyone – deserve to feel safe and secure in our places of work. These playful little comments alluding to our sexuality or what we do behind closed doors or what we wear when we’re not in the library? They can turn out to be not so playful. At the very least, they are awkward and uncomfortable. At their worst, they are dangerous. It’s harmless until it isn’t, and the line is just too easy to cross. — Enough With the “Sexy Librarian” Thing, Already | BOOK RIOT (via bookriot)

Now, I don’t. — Meryl Streep [x] (via theashleyclements)
