Maybe this is my stint working in a library back as a college student. There were some shady folks who came into the library to look up pictures of women with huge, obviously fake breasts. Plus the gutteral laugh at the ones where each had twice the volume of the woman’s head. They did this in open view of everyone.
On the flip side, one of my fellow college students consistently did her research on how sexual assaults impaired women. Many of the keywords for that are likely things software to protect children blocks.
Two uniformed men strolled into the main room of the Little Falls library in Bethesda one day last week and demanded the attention of all patrons using the computers. Then they made their announcement: The viewing of Internet pornography was forbidden.
The men looked stern and wore baseball caps emblazoned with the words “Homeland Security.” The bizarre scene unfolded Feb. 9, leaving some residents confused and forcing county officials to explain how employees assigned to protect county buildings against terrorists came to see it as their job to police the viewing of pornography.
After the two men made their announcement, one of them challenged an Internet user’s choice of viewing material and asked him to step outside, according to a witness. A librarian intervened, and the two men went into the library’s work area to discuss the matter. A police officer arrived. In the end, no one had to step outside except the uniformed men.
