We definitely need more kink shaming. Women should be able to talk about their boundaries and what makes them uncomfortable. More kink shaming, less boundary shaming in 2022.

Definitely

I work in a public library and we recently acquired a book of kink stories and I was SO APPALLED. I wanted to quit because of it, because normalizing this shit is what is putting women at risk of violence and now the library is making this available like it's perfectly healthy to read ? D: It's such a sickness in our society.

Oh, and need I remind you that our Acquisitions Librarian is male. And he's the only one who is choosing what books go into our collection. So you can imagine just what is being chosen.

I hope that book mysteriously gets lost.

It's absolutely the sort of book some person would forget to return, never to be seen again. Or you know it could be in the library but wow nobody can ever locate the copy, gee, maybe someone stole it....

Ugh, fuck that. Is he your boss? Maybe suggest that others should have some input?

He's not but our management has the celebrated tendency to not give a shit about any concerns of their employees. If any change is going to happen it needs to come from outside from our patrons being able to raise enough of a stink about it, but most of them don't seem aware of the issues. They just either ignore all the TRA books or take them and hide them among the stacks. I'm like "SAY SOMETHING TO MANAGEMENT!" If the protests were loud enough our director wouldn't have a choice but to listen because, hey, the library is run by the taxpayers who pay his salary after all. :P
