Bryan McKay has been rocking my world ever since I ran across some of his gender studies essays in is blog Les Faits de la Fiction. He’s articulate and surprisingly self-aware for a member of the dominant paradigm, which is challenging many of my preconceived notions of gender inequity warriors.
I used to work at the reference desk a few hours a week. It helped reinforce my decision to stay as far away from reference work as I can. Don’t get me wrong, I like helping people with research and finding answers to questions. It was the stupid questions (and there are stupid questions) and the lazy students that really got under my skin. Oh, how many times I wished I could send them to a website like this!
