Amazon: When it Rains, It Pours

Tuesday, February 06, 2007

What does Boylove (you know, the sexual exploitation of underage boys by pedophiles) have to do with some of your favorite grocery products? Well, evidently more than one would like. is offering a pedophile book: Viamund the Boylove Vampyre Says...: Poetry & Haiku's (Paperback)by Octaevius Altair, for sale on it's website. And, interestingly it seems that while Amazon is claiming freedom of expression, and their need to provide a voice to different authors of all backgrounds as it's reason for offering the book... the companies in the following Amazon ad just want to get exposure for their products, even if it means doing on a site that is openly promoting pedophilia propaganda.

Maxwell House, Post, and more than 20 more. Offers valid through February 28.
Yes, that's right folks, these companies are paying Amazon to show their ads, and therefore are directly encouraging Amazon's choice to sell this book.

Thankfully, we don't drink Maxwell House in THIS house, because I buy the coffee around here. And, although I've always liked Post, I'm sure that I can find another brand of cereal for the kids breakfast. Kraft might be a little more difficult to replace, but if they are willing to pay Amazon to run ads on product pages that encourage the sexual exploitation of children- I'm not willing to feed my family their products.

Now, in all fairness, it could be that Amazon isn't really aware of the subject matter of this book filth. After all, Amazon is a huge online company, offering a huge amount of products, and certainly we can not expect them to inspect each and every one of them.

It could be that they aren't aware... but they are. We know that they are aware of the subject and content, because they were contacted about it. Sadly, it seems that they just don't care.

In fact their response to a fellow blogger who contacted them was firmly supportive of the keeping this filth available, From Gawfer
Thank you for writing to a retailer, our goal is to provide customers with the broadest selection possible so they can find, discover, and buy any item they might be seeking.

Therefore, the items offered on our web site represent a wide spectrum of opinions on a variety of believes it is censorship not to display certain articles because we believe their message is objectionable.
There is more to the response, so please head over to read the full thing. I'm sure you will be just as shocked as I was.

Now, in fairness, before I ask you to blindly make prompt decisions about this problem- you need to know just what sort of issue we are dealing with. For this, I'll need you to read a little about this propaganda. Please read the entire post by AZ, as it is important that we hold these companies which would endorse the sexual exploitation of children, in order to line their own pockets; just how we feel about this.

And, until Amazon, Kraft, Post and Maxwell House are willing to stop endorsing this book by selling it, or by supporting the company which is selling it- please take a moment and let them know just where you stand on pedophilia propaganda being openly advertised and sold.

Boycott Amazon!

Big H/T to Kate for mentioning this.
