In commemoration of the holiday, we will present the most famous leporine drag act ever to grace the silver screen.  With apologies to Richard Wagner and Chuck Jones.

I thought this was a fucking joke at first.

That's right...  Amazon has reclassified ALL LGBT material as "Adult".

From BookSquare:  http://booksquare.com/open-letter-to-amazon-regarding-recent-policy-changes/

and the author Mark Probst:  http://markprobst.livejournal.com/15293.html

Go to amazon.com and do a search for "homosexuality".  The first book is "A parent's guide to preventing homosexuality".  Yes, "preventing".

Spread the word... this CANNOT stay there.

To amazon.com:

I discovered this evening much to my chagrin Amazon.com's new policy regarding GLBT-related literature, and how it has been recategorized en masse to "adult material" status.  This new policy is without saying one of the most bigoted and unprofessional actions that a company such as yours can take (to alienate a single group because of perceptions.)

I am a public librarian.  Because of this change of policy, I will no longer give amazon.com my personal business for book purchases, and I will discourage my friends and colleagues as well as my library patrons from using amazon.com's resources to purchase material.

I hope that this short-sighted and malicious policy is rescinded quickly.

Sincerely,
Michael Cienfuegos, MLS
