'Amazon just blocked my publisher from advertising my book, IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE.

Apparently, you're allowed to promote gender ideology; you're just not allowed to question it.'

Worth also following Shrier's link to Regnery Publishing--quite a long thread but here is how it starts:

Regnery Publishing
@Regnery

'Our full statement: The cancel culture has made it clear that it despises diversity of opinion, and it will not tolerate science, data, facts, or anything that contradicts the approved narrative. If you’re not on board, you’ll have your head handed to you. 1/3

If you go on Amazon right now and search ‘transgender books,’ you will find paid advertisements from major publishing houses promoting books on the side of this issue Amazon apparently agrees with. 2/3

But if you’re a college fball coach who wears a conservative tshirt, an editor at the @nytimes who runs an opinion piece by a Rep senator, or a respected journalist who writes for @WSJ investigating a serious social issue affecting young women in America, you will be silenced. 3/3

It's still for sale on Amazon so presumably this ban is only on advertising?

Yes (and apologies for the Fox link).

Not censoring but stifling.

I'll buy it but not on Amazon. Bloody awful thing to do. Big corps still running scared. Cowards.

Yes, there are lots of places to get this aside from Amazon.

It will be interesting to see where it gets reviewed.

If I search her on Amazon, I get sponsored results for strange expensive silicon underwear.

Other online book retailers are available. Some of them sell books hmm
