Amazon removes books that frame LGBTQ+ identities as mental illnesses

Amazon announced that it would stop the sale of books that frame transgender and other gender and sexual identities as mental illnesses. The company, however, said that the move is not targeted against conservative material and voices on Amazon’s platforms, since it offers ’customers across the political spectrum a wide variety of content that includes disparate opinions.’

Easiest way to identify a Cultist Ideology is when it fears exposure to decenting arguments.

Gender dysphoria is a mental illness. It has prescribed psychological, pharmaceutical, and surgical treatments. The acronym LGBTQ signifies a political lobby, not that homosexuality is remotely the same thing as being transgender.

What a dumb display of woke corporate censorship. I just checked and you *can* buy "Mein Kampf" on Amazon. Just sell all the books and stop woke-censoring.

Rejecting the body you were born into thus trying to change your sex with mutilating, sterilizing surgery and sexual hormones is certainly a disorder. It is no wonder that rejecting your body in this way is correlated with massive rates of suicidal ideation.

I try not read content I find offensive - to me. Silly book burning by Amazon. And yes it is their decision and right to draw inspiration from 1940s Germany. I buy regularly, every week a book from them. Guess I'll support a better book store. Haven't drank any Coke products, used any Gillette product etc etc. It's fun buying from underdogs and less woke anti PC establishments. Businesses must stay out of politics imo.

If you can't win the argument then silence the opposition. Here we have further proof that the LGBT ideology cannot win the argument that transgenderism is not a mental illness (because it is). The bigger problem is that mainstream media is encouraging people to go along with the delusion that a man can be a woman or a woman can be a man. That isn't healthy for the individual or the society. Transgendered people need help to come to terms with their identity, not enforced acceptance of their delusional misperception of themselves.

Just take your business else where or directly to printers. Amazon will lose billions if you stop participating.

Thank you Amazon for saving us from science. Lord knows that books reviewing studies on the subject should never see the light of day.🤦🏽‍♂️/ /s Now seriously, this type of censorship just perpetuates the failed approach that is accelerating families burying there loved ones due to a horrific mental illness. Identity issues are not remedied by participating in the delusions. The data we have shows that current treatments are not stopping this community from suicide at completely unacceptable rates. TREAT THE ILLNESS SAVE THE PEESON.

The headline should be: “Amazon takes a page from Nazi playbook in what is seen as modern book burning”

I took psychology in college,gender dysphoria IS a mental illness..It was true in 1980 and it's still true today.Calling a penny a quarter doesn't make it so..

If I were to identify myself as a penguin, I'd be viewed as if I "weren't of sound mind". I don't see any difference if were to identify as a lady. The sex anatomy we're born with is our classification of sex, not your orientation or identity. Stop playing sports with women before some woman gets seriously hurt or killed!!! That's like someone normal competing in the special Olympics or a "Something about Mary" scenario. Just saying

So the DSM is no longer allowed either? Legit psychology textbooks are banned now? Welcome to new age book burning.

Amazon moves to stop selling books that perpetuate lies that put a vulnerable minority at risk. And somehow this upsets some people.

I get why people would be upset by this but you must understand, they're a private business. They are allowed to sell whichever products they want. Instead of complaining, take your business elsewhere. I've only shopped small business when possible for several years due to my disagreement with large corporations policies.

But transgenderism is a mental disorder/illness called gender dysphoria which has been mostly proven psychologically and biologically to be a mental disorder. Every transgender person technically has a mental disorder. Though that does not mean that they aren’t equal to us or something. Of course they’re equal to us, They just need help to deal with their disorder.

Where does the censorship end? The Thought Police are among us and in control. They have decided that we, serfs, are no longer to be given the freedom to decide what to think and believe for ourselves and that only the science that supports their approved narrative is to be followed. Dissenting opinions are to be rooted out and destroyed like weeds... or, in today’s term, “ canceled ”.

Wow, so glad to see that the company that treats their workers worse than animals said gay rights /s As a queer person they aren’t going to get my praise for their pandering. They don’t care about minorities. They care about optics and covering up the abuse that takes place at their facilities

They should try reading books instead of banning them... Amazon are the digital equivalent of Nazis...

The logic behind this is confusing. I guess you could take your book on some legitimate scientific study about the subject and just relabel as political commentary so it can be sold.
