Amazon has no problem with promoting and selling books that tell you all about how racist you are as a white American, and they certainly have no problem with pushing books that explain how natural, wonderful, and scientific it is to accidentally be born inside the wrong body. But if you dare write a book about how, just maybe, we’ve stumbled into madness on our way to transgender tolerance? Well, you can just forget about promoting that book on Amazon’s precious web space.
The online retailer informed Regnery Publishing that their ad campaign to promote Abigail Shrier’s “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” was no longer welcome on the site.
“This book may not be appropriate for all audiences,” Amazon told Regnery. “This campaign will not be allowed to be advertised.”
“The cancel culture has made it clear that it despises diversity of opinion, and it will not tolerate science, data, facts, or anything that contradicts the approved narrative,” tweeted Regnery Publishing on Tuesday. “If you’re not on board, you’ll have your head handed to you.”
“If you go on Amazon right now and search ‘transgender books,’ you will find paid advertisements from major publishing houses promoting books on the side of this issue Amazon apparently agrees with,” the publisher continued. “But if you’re a college fball coach who wears a conservative tshirt, an editor at the @nytimes who runs an opinion piece by a Rep senator, or a respected journalist who writes for @WSJ investigating a serious social issue affecting young women in America, you will be silenced.”
Yeah, well, is anyone surprised? Over at J.K. Rowling’s literary agency, writers are canceling their contracts because the agency won’t come out publicly against their biggest (by far) cash cow. All because of what? Because Rowling penned a hateful essay calling all transgender people “men in dresses”? Because she called for mass discrimination against them? Because she said a single bad word about them? No. Because she doesn’t fully buy into the idea that “sex” is a meaningless concept and she doesn’t believe that a man who decides at the age of 70 to become a woman has the right to tell actual women how they should feel about being called “people who menstruate.”
The transgender craze – that’s a great title for a book, because that’s exactly what it is. And it is just the latest issue that the left cannot defend…and so they shut down anyone who disagrees with the slightest tenet of the movement. No surprise at all that Amazon would be on board with that.
