Publisher Takes On Amazon For Pro-Trans Bias After His Book Ad Gets Snuffed
Shipping giant Amazon is in the book business with their Kindles and epubs. So it was a big surprise for one publisher when he found out that they were refusing to run an ad for his book that warned teenage girls about the danger of the transgender movement. It appears they are showing a clear bias here.
"An email obtained by Fox News shows Amazon's Advertising Support service defending its decision to suspend Regnery Publishing's campaign for "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters." The book was written by Abigail Shrier, who has been outspoken on the issue, and, according to its description, it warns that ideas surrounding gender are prompting teenage girls to "disfigur[e] their bodies" with courses of testosterone.
A Regnery spokesperson said the ad itself wouldn't have displayed the book description but simply buying options along with a photo of the cover, which features a drawing of a young girl with a hole in her abdomen."
"The book's blurb on Amazon says that Shier "has dug deep into the trans epidemic, talking to the girls, their agonized parents, and the counselors and doctors who enable gender transitions, as well as to 'detransitioners' — young women who bitterly regret what they have done to themselves."
In the book, Shier examines the medical and psychological injury often caused to teenage girls who adopt a transgender lifestyle and undergo a physical transition.
Pre-orders are now available for my book:
IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters.
The book explores the idea that trans-identification has become a peer contagion among teen girls.

A Regnery spokesperson told Fox News that "Amazon is one of our most important ad platforms" and the inability to advertise on the site "would be a significant hit to our promotional efforts."
The publisher has noted that you can find books with the opposing view on Amazon without a problem. But a book warning you about the potential dangers of permanently altering your body is apparently taboo. It's clear that Amazon really doesn't care about the welfare of confused teens if they won't even provide them with the chance to understand their choice.
