Amazon decides LGBT books such as the picture book HEATHER HAS TWO MOMMIES are “too adult” for inclusion in its sales ranks.
If you Twitter (I don’t), read #amazonfail — apparently the most-searched Twitter trend within hours of Amazon making the change today. Author Maureen Johnson has some good tweets up on her blog, which is now in our blogroll.
This is not the first crazy/horrible Amazon corporate decision — they’ve long been censoring books critical of Scientology, for example — but it is possibly the most stupid. Haven’t they heard? There’s a new gay rights movement.
If anyone’s got updates (or other good parodies/responses to Amazon), please share!
UPDATE #2: Jezebel says it all in pictures.
