This is seriously messed up.

Isn't that so sad? I really hope that they realize how completely stupid this is.

Leigh said...

Woah. I could hardly believe this until I tested it out. Yep. It's real. That really sort of kind of makes me frustrated.

Thanks for the alert, Steph. According to this blog post, "Heather has two Mommies" is included in the "too adult" category. Nice one, Amazon.

I can't believe that Amazon got this so wrong!

Reader Rabbit said...

Haha wow...Amazon failed.

I made a Facebook group about this. Like literally 2 minutes ago so it's just me so far, but this is one of the things where I could see internet action really working, so... tell your friends! There's an online petition everyone can sign, which I linked at the facebook too.

This is awful. Stupid amazon.

Internet censorship=teh suck. How is this any different from banning books? Never mind the discrimination against the gay community...

That's hilarious -the definition, not the actual things Amazon has done. They're trying to say now that it was all an error blah blah blah. AmazonFAIL.

In other news, I really need to talk to you. It is of much importance and you will LOVE me.

Unfortunately, Amazon's attempts to appease the loud people have pissed off everyone else. And had they slowed down enough to truly think about the decision, they probably would have realized that those shouting the loudest weren't necessarily the greatest in number. I hope they find their common sense soon.

Hey! For some reason, this embedded comment form makes most people click twice before the comment is processed and published. It's not you - it's just that it's a new Blogger feature with kinks and all that. (But I adore it and don't wanna get rid of it!) I removed Captcha to make the process easier. You don't have to rewrite the comments twice; just click on SUBMIT twice and it should work. If not, email me. Thanks! -Steph
