The Epoch Times (whatever its supposed connections to China and the CCP’s agenda, publishing a conservative newspaper) reports that Amazon has “quietly” removed a high-profile book “criticizing transgender ideology”.
In 2018, Matthew J. Franck had written the book review, “Pressing Pause on the ‘Transgender Moment’”: Ryan T. Anderson’s “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment” (Encounter Books). If you press the link on Amazon, you get a “sorry, couldn’t find that page”.
I sometimes get offers of samples of children’s books that seem to promote transgenderism in minors, and I have let them pass. In real life, I don’t know any cases of puberty blockers or surgery in younger minors, middle school, etc. This does not sound like something that happens a lot. When there is a genuine physical medical reason, that may well be a different matter. But it is relatively uncommon.
There isn’t much video from the author on YouTube; if you look, you see where he is coming from.
But I am not one for saying everyone has to declare their pronouns, or use “their” when you really know the person is a he or she.
Update: March 2: Amazon has quietly published content guidelines that mention "hate speech". The Epoch Times (paywall now) and Free Beacon Times have published stories about this development. (There is a newer discussion here of this matter July 26, 2021).
