Heard about this yesterday. If Amazon really pulled the book that's ridiculous. Maybe we should burn them just to make sure.

I hope this guy made a lot of money using STRANGER DANGER media alarmists for free publicity.
TeenerTot
Yeah, they're totally trampling his constitutional right to have Amazon distribute his book!

notascientist
TeenerTot has a dog in this race, you see.

Xenocide
First they came for the pedophiles, and I didn't care because seriously who would care about that.

Then they came for the...no wait, that was the end of it. Amazon never established an evil police state. Which is too bad because I have that free overnight shipping deal with them, so they'd probably put me on the "do not send to the camps" list.

Nobody brought up constitutional rights dude. It's just silly when a company gives in to a manufactured "public outcry" that arose from a bunch of pigs hearing Nancy Grace or some talking head make a big deal out of this one book.

There's nothing remarkable about this one and there's no reason to stop selling it because some 500 pounder from Iowa thinks someone is after her kids. Amazon sells loads of shit. I hear you can even buy books about murder.

NewHeavenSalesman
Until amazon bans all Piers Anthony books, this is less an action against pedophiles and more kowtowing to fat midwesterners with ATTITUDE.

Hooker
That Amazon.com is possibly no longer selling this book encouraging pedophilia is an OUTRAGE.

Jesus Christ, guys. Pick your battles. This is one dumb issue to dig your heels in on.

RocketBlender
These are Xenosaga's stars. No one else can touch them.

I mean Xenocide.

Syd Midnight
It's like when Walmart tramples on the constitution and doesn't sell a book about gays. Because being a pedophile is no different than being gay, to some people.

Hooker
Oh my God. A company not selling a thing is not "trampling on the constitution."

Rodents of Unusual Size
stars for Xenocide.

As long as no laws are broken I don't have a problem with him writing this crap but I as a parent and/or book sales outlet would definately not stock it.

Problem solved.

Is sextourism even illegal? I thought that was the point of it. Why bother spending thosuands of dollars flying to Thailand when places like Sacramento have thriving underage sexslave industries.

Jellyneck
I'm not really up on my sex tourism laws, but many countries can charge you when you get back for something you committed on foreign soil.

fluffy
Including the US.

Longshot-
Not like you can't just buy it off Ebay... Or any one of the other millions of websites that sell books. Because you know, Amazon is the only place where you can buy books online.
IrishWhiskey
Then we need to ban all bookstores from selling this vile propaganda. After all if they can't buy it online, its not like there's anywhere else on the internet that contains references and advocacy of pedophilia. Well except the NAMBLA website. And a few of the "chans". And about a million forums containing far more explicit and detailed instructions than could ever be published in a books.

"it's not always bad for the child, but it is confining for the adult" yikes

So long as The Man doesn't take away our right to read graphic child on child sex acts at the end of Stephen King novels, we're okay as a culture.
Gmork
Imagine if a book-faithful version of IT ever came out. Christ, i'm almost glad they went with "giant alien spider".

Caminante Nocturno
Was the script font really necessary?
Pillager
That's you got out of this?

Tom Collins
Well, yes. Can you think of a more apt font for a self-help book telling googly eyed pervs to lay it off?

Caminante Nocturno
Comic sans.

BUt I can go to Amazon right now and order any of Hakim Bey / Peter Lamborn Wilson's books.

Not to mention this little gem: http://www.amazon.com/We-were-NOT-abused/dp/0967699738/ref=sr_1_2? s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1289598358&sr=1-2

This is one of those fights where both sides are being fucking retarded, for different reasons.

Quad9Damage
Wow dude, you are totally in front of a camera advocating pedophilia.

The story's article is up on POE-News. It contains this gem:

In a phone interview with CNN yesterday, Greaves defended his book and said that "true pedophiles love children and would never hurt them." But when CNN asked if the e-book was a how-to manual, he said "there are certain parts that are advisory" and added further that "penetration is out. You can't do that with a child, but kissing and fondling I don't think is that big of a problem."


Gmork
Hard to feel anything but positive about a potential armageddon after reading that.
