A ruthless sex-fiend, Tammy Swanson (Tammy II) from Parks and Recreation is what every “sexy librarian” would be if they couldn’t turn it off in the real world.
She is a master of sexual seduction that Ron Swanson
cannot deny-and she uses his desires to her full advantage. She is as Ron
describes, a “manipulative, psychotic, library book peddling, sex crazed,
she-demon.” Tammy first appears in "Ron and Tammy", when she lays
claims to Lot 48 in order to expand the library to another branch. A bit of
trivia: The actress who portrays Tammy 2, Megan Mullally is actually married to
Nick Offerman, who portrays Ron Swanson.
Librarian Stereotypes says, “For women working in the field, the ‘sexy librarian’ is perhaps the most demeaning, infuriating stereotype because it degrades the woman from being a normal person doing their job to a sex object that is there only to look pretty. As such, this stereotype seems to be the one hardest to overcome for me personally, but also for the profession overall.”
I actually disagree with this notion.
Even though Tammy II is an over-sexualized bitch, she shows that librarians have a wide range of personalities. She is also quite a strong and interesting character that watches out for her own interest and the interests of those who work for her. Her sexualized stereotype is so over done that it is absurd! It takes the stereotype and does not forward the notion but instead pokes fun at the very idea of the “over-sexed” librarian.
