lucy’s library books are not the only things in her life desperately overdue. that sordid list includes: a raise at her soul-sucking retail job, the completion of her bachelor’s degree, and most distressingly, her period. somewhere in the moment between peeing on a stick and seeing two pastel lines, lucy decides she’s taking her life off hold.
muriel rules over her small branch of the public library system with an iron fist, a velvet voice, and a very high bun. in her past five years at the helm, she’s made the library into a community center. still, her friendly demeanor hasn’t led to any intimacies outside of the stacks. but when lucy comes in, muriel wants to lend her more than books. can she move out of the reserved section and into new releases?
you won’t need a call number for File Under Romance. it’s on the shelf between fresh starts and falling in love.
All the analysis on transmisogyny will not make you less of a white supremacist if you are a white supremacist. In fact, it will make you even more disgusting if you constantly treat trans women of color ( particularly poor Black, Native, and Latina trans women) like shit despite your analysis.
When it comes to the question of “Alien vs. Predator,” I’ll take a eusocial matriarchy over an individualistic achievement-driven patriarchy any day of the week.
