I’m sorry if this sounds a wee bit ignorant but I honestly had no idea that “library misconceptions” were the new hot trend. I mean I guess people were just tired of talking about how cops are douchebags, teenage boys are horny little troublemakers, and gingers don’t have souls. So what else is there to talk about? Oh yeah the “stereotypical library”. Sounds UBER interesting!
Listen here Ms. West, you don’t mind if I call you Ms. West do you? Everyone has stereotypes for everyone, quite frankly it’s just a part of life. Liberians will always be mean old hags, redheads will always be pale and soulless, and supermodels will always be sexy superhumans that have the perfect life. Shoot even Disney Pixar exaggerates stereotypes. Quite frankly, I think it’s time we stop fighting the system and embrace it.
When I was in sixth grade I got the bright idea to dye my hair color blonde because all the kids would give me a hard time about my red hair. Do you know what happens when you dye red hair blonde? It becomes as orange as a mandarin, on fire, sitting in the middle of a sunset. I learned my lesson that day. Don’t mess with stereotypes, embrace them, soon enough everyone will notice they’re not true. Funny how that common sense thing works out.
