SHUSH on Gay Teen collections in libraries

I assume all non-lefty librarians read SHUSH - for the conservative librarian. If not, check out this must-read post from Greg.

There's a description of a self-described "lesbian librarian" that is jaw-droppingly instructive:

"Arla Jones, Barton's librarian at Lawrence High School and founder of the school's Gay-Straight Alliance, has become the school's de facto counselor for gay teens because of her extensive gay literature collection and the fact she's a lesbian herself."

Greg's commentary on the above cuts through the treacle.
