Heather Has Two Mommies - a book for children - has been deemed too adult and had its Sales Ranking removed. But the Playboy: The Complete Centerfolds is not an adult book and has a Sales Ranking.

Books like A Parent's Guide to Preventing Homosexuality by Joseph Nicolosi and Linda Ames Nicolosi have kept their sales ranking. Books like The Lesbian and Gay Parenting Handbook: Creating and Raising Our Families by April Martin have lost their sales ranking. Neither has Mein Kampf.

I can't even begin to describe how much this pisses me off. Not just as a writer. Not just as someone who has taken several library courses. Not just as someone who has gay friends and family members. It offends me as a human being.

If Amazon.com doesn't recant immediately, I will break away from the referral program on my website and sign with their competitors instead.

P.S.: Oh, John Barrowman's autobiography has also had its rank pulled.

P.P.S.: Amazon.com Spokespeople have claimed that this is a "glitch". Sure it is.
