Wednesday, November 10, 2010 needs a good swift kick!

I'm not generally a boycotter, but this has gotten me angry.

Amazon is selling an e-book entitled "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure." I'm not kidding. You can read about the controversy here.

This really, really gets my blood boiling!!! Amazon is knowingly encouraging pedophilia!!! Their defense of the author's First Amendment rights sounds noble, but what happens if someone takes this writer's advice and a child is hurt?

I buy a lot of stuff from Amazon. Or at least I did. If they do not stop selling this vile publication, they will permanently lose me as a customer.

This time of year is their biggest money-making season. Let's show them that we mothers WILL NOT stand for this. Our children's well-being and safety is more important than getting a good Christmas bargain. Please let Amazon know that you won't be purchasing from them until they stop selling this.


  1. I'm honestly just baffled. They have a policy to remove items that are offensive, and go on to say, "What we deem offensive is probably what you would expect."

    How is THIS not offensive?!

    Thank you for the heads-up.

  2. I'm in. They will not be getting my business. I had thought of doing some of my Christmas shopping at that site, but I have now decided against it. Thanks for keeping us up to date.

  3. Oh no....that is TERRIBLE. I know about the first ammendment and all but there comes a time when (like the safety of our children)that should not be an excuse. I order a lot from them...but Im thinking now that Im going to write them an email....and stop shopping with them. If you dont mind...Id like to share this info on my blog.
