Biz, Politics: Amazon apparently doesn’t like gay people anymore

  • Author Mark R. Probst noticed recently that the sales rankings for his gay-themed novel plummeted on Amazon. source
  • He inquired with Amazon’s staff, and learned from a rep that they had deemed his book (and books like it) “adult material.” source
  • He wasn’t alone; other “adult” books include “Brokeback Mountain,” which became an Oscar-winning flick. source
  • So now the Internet is in an uproar/frenzy, and the mainstream press seems slow to respond. WTF, guys? source
