PROTEST against AMAZON

 

Do NOT give any money or business to Amazon.com!  They have begun to strip the ranking of all GLBT books.  In fact, the first book to show up when you search “homosexuality” is a parent’s guide on how to PREVENT IT.

One of the most powerful indicators of how a book is doing sales wise and can be a leading factor for generating or killing interest in a book. Though many factors go into the sales ranking system, the primary driving factor has been sales-number of books sold. Using that method, a shopper could look at similar titles within a genre and see which books were generating sales. The method however, now seems altered, in a manner that feels similar to the unsavory practice of banning books.

  4. i love amazon, but this definitely needs to change.

    i’m sure they’ll change their policy around soon, the same way craigslist did after years of giving STD warnings before the gay personal ads but not the straight personal ads.
