Amazon suspected of homophobia
Some concern and suspicion rose up this week, especially on Twitter, over Amazon. Books with "adult content," especially those with GLBT themes, have been removed from Amazon's ranking system, making it impossible for these titles to come up unless they are specifically searched for. This even includes titles on best sellers lists. Amazon is saying that it was caused by a glitch, but no one's really buying it.
