This is why we do displays in the library.
It’s no secret to my friends that I despise the Twilight books, purveyors of the blankest of blank of female “heroines”. I’m forever pointing to these two tshirts as my talking points:
So when I stopped at our banned books week display in the lobby and read the comments pinned to it, I cackled with glee at the one pinned to the photo of the Twilight cover.
“Set the feminist movement back so far that on Election Day I had to make them a sandwich before they’d let me vote.”
Amen, sister. But just because it’s dangerous crap doesn’t mean we should ban it. We should just encourage thoughtful, critical debate about it.
And the book with the most comments on the board? And Tango Makes Three.
