Amazon Tells GOP Senators It Won’t Sell Books That “Frame LGBTQ+ Identity As Mental Illness”

Via The Daily Beast:

Last month, Republican Senators. Marco Rubio of Florida, Mike Lee of Utah, Mike Braun of Indiana, and Josh Hawley of Missouri, wrote to Jeff Bezos demanding an explanation of why When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment was no longer for sale on Amazon. In a response seen by The Wall Street Journal, Amazon exec Brian Huseman wrote: “We have chosen not to sell books that frame LGBTQ+ identity as a mental illness.” The senators haven’t commented on the response, but whined in their initial letter that book’s removal was a message “to conservative Americans that their views are not welcome on its platforms.”

Rubio, Hawley, and Cruz. The usual anti-LGBT insurrectionist suspects.

Amazon gets it. Who knew?
