... I checked my flist and found everyone had posted about the Easter Dr. Who special. (Okay, "everyone" was merely 3 or 4 posts in a row and all the new ones.)

Today, everyone has posted about Amazon's appalling new policy of - in effect - discriminating against LGBT books.

In the chance that anyone reads my LJ and hasn't come across this story elsewhere - you can see one of the 'straight (SORRY - no pun intended!) from the horse's mouth' accounts here. And sign the petition here.

I know some people - librarians and teachers included - may not be as free to publicly proclaim a boycott of Amazon until they rescind the policy - but on the other hand, the kidlitosphere especially NEEDS to protest this.

.. . and the fact that just since I read the 'everyone' posts there's been evidence of Amazon's backtracking doesn't mean it's ignorable. It's still important to ensure this doesn't become a small, overlooked incident which could happen again, in this, or a slightly altered form.
