Like, so much.
Rather than call out the tumblr account as a passing fad, the AL went to town on the participating librarians, calling them such names as “aholes,” “barely literate,” and “destructive human beings.” I have not seen this level of name calling since I went to the guinea pig calling competition in 1998 and my cousin just sat there yelling random monikers. A ferocious bit of shaming.
And the sarcasm! The sarcasm runneth over as he/she/it/when went above and beyond to bring these librarians to their knees and show them their faults. Who the fucking hell do they think they are, I must ask, putting something benign on the internet and allowing themselves to be anonymous about it? Oh, woe to give the profession an unprofessional slant. Does not this librarian shaming cause us to demean ourselves? That’s what I read in her/his/its/whens/sometimes”y”’s tone as his/her/its/whens/sometimes”y”s/potato sarcasm scythe came slashing down to murder the librarian shame pony.
But I’m just a guy. I dunno.
