i am so pround i might burst

this actually went down this morning before i saw any of the #yesgayya stuff. but hey! excellent timing!

i have some new books in the office, which i haven't got round to putting on display just yet, and a student was going through to see if she wanted to borrow any, and we started talking about diversity in the fiction collection blah AND THEN THIS HAPPENED
i said, "i think it's important to have books with gay and lesbian characters in--"
and she cut in with "and it's not an issue that they're gay or anything, they just are"
and i said, "yeah, because--"
and she said "there should be books with all types of people in. do you have any books with romance but not vampires, i'm tired of them."

MY WORK HERE IS DONE
