Gender Bias in Libraries?

I really enjoy reading things from the minority in our profession, the male librarian. In the January 15 issue of Library Journal, Adam Holland writes a Backtalk article titled Gender Bias in Libraries? He has some interesting things to say, but I also found the comments to be illuminating, especially Charles Carr's. (I'm a bit floored by his situation, to be honest.) Go forth and give it a read.

Are you a male librarian who's faced the sardonic smile? If you have a story to share, please do so in the comments.
