Last week made me so happy about the shifting zeitgeist with Iowa (yay!) and Vermont. This corporate homophobia annoys even more in light of that.

This is the email I sent them (through my account so they can see I'm a customer who ordered from them just last week):

I was appalled to learn today of your new policy censoring gay books by stripping them of their sales rankings and removing them from search
results. Especially given the transparently hypocritical "explanation" for these actions that automatically classes gay content as "adult" while
explicitly sexual heterosexual materials are not so labeled. Please tell me in what possible way "Heather Has Two Mommies" or "The Filly"
are more Adult than books of Playboy centerfolds?

As a straight woman who believes in civil rights, I cannot in good conscience order further from your company until this policy is reversed
and rankings/search-ability restored to all products on your site.
