I was going to post a lovely painting I did somehow yesterday of some cherry blossoms but after finding out about this latest back handed switcheroo pulled by amazon I changed my mind.
If you haven't heard about it or caught it on twitter apparently amazon has basically pulled any and all LGBT books sales ranking as well as from certain searches and lists. They claim its because they want to hide anything with adult material. Just for an example of how much of a lie that is they've removed Stephen Fry and Ellen DeGeneres autobiographies but kept up Ron Jeremie's. So lesbian and gay comedians bad but a porn star just fine?
It's so fucking insane if you search for "Homosexuality" there the first thing that pops up is this drivel "A Parent's Guide To Preventing Homosexuality".
For more information check out Jezebel that has a long list of books stripped of sales ranks and those that had them left.
I was trying to talk my husband into getting an Amazon account but after this god awful attempt at censoring by claiming it's all a glitch I'm thinking about abandoning ship and going to Barnes and Noble.
Bravo Amazon, you may have just found a great way to keep brick and mortar bookstores in the red.
