Two librarians are being sued by a so-called peer for calling out his predatory behavior. It’s sickening.

The link here takes you to the explanation of the lawsuit. Also worth signal boosting is the call for witnesses: http://teamharpy.wordpress.com/call-for-witnesses/

The amount of damages being sought is ridiculous — would be laughable if the situation weren’t so serious — and comes across as an attempt to silence more than anything else. I’m glad it’s not working, and admire the women involved for their bravery in an awful situation.

On the whole, local libraries are pretty bad ass.

Anita Sarkeesian shares the most radical thing you can do to support women online Anyone looking to support women suffering from harassment online has a surprisingly simple place to start, says Anita Sarkeesian, founder of the web video series Feminist Frequency. “One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences,” Sarkeesian told the audience today at XOXO Festival in Portland. It’s radical in part because of misinformation campaigns organized against high-profile women that accuse them of making up the threats against them — and it’s an issue that Sarkeesian has recent experience dealing with.
