ok spicier take, but metadata about the content, themes, and endings of media resources is what librarians exist for, and such queries as “queer × fantasy × adult audience × no lesbians die × happy ending” would be entirely within reach with a well-funded and well-stocked library system attentive to the needs of various communities
muting that down to a sliding-scale sticker on a book cover or a line at the top of a review is hilarious in how entirely it fails to perceive the problem
@jellyfish_link doesthedogdie, but for books?
@aschmitz oh yeah i mean my goal is sort of “librarians but no libraries”. i think librarianship is important but i have problems with the current institutions and how they operate
