UPDATE: “Maybe She Is Crazy”: Linda Harvey’s Anti-Gay Book Pulled From Amazon

maybe-hes-not-gayIf you logged onto Amazon.com to buy Mission: America founder and 80’s picture studio stock model Linda Harvey’s book for your allegedly gay son as a belated Christmas present, you may be out of luck.

According to Back2Stonewall, Maybe He’s Not Gay: Another View on Homosexuality has been yanked off the virtual shelves after receiving letters of complaint.

So it looks like Harvey fans will have to look for the answers to those hard questions she poses somewhere else. Questions like, “Is there another possibility that transcends the seeming finality of a homosexual identity?”

I dunno, Homofin?

UPDATE: According to a spokesperson from Amazon, “the publisher removed the book from sale, not Amazon.” Sigh. Well, I guess there’s always hope that the publishers, finally coming to their senses, found their own book to be a load of crock and burned every copy in a ritualistic bonfire.

      It’s a mistake to censer her. She’s an idiot, let her tie her own noose.

      @Fitz: She may be an idiot, but parent reading her book will cause irreparable harm. Better to yank the book, and simply let her spew her vitriol on her radio show.

      Pulling her book. I don’t like the idea of censer. When will it stop, how far will it go, and who decides??? Lets just get the word out through social media and the like, as to what she’s about. And those of us who don’t want to buy her book, wont…

      People can (and have) said the same about us. Better to let the cow speak. Truth always wins out.

      It is proper for Amazon to elect not to sell harmful quackery. The religious fundamentalist condemnation of homosexuality and gay people is non-scientific and harmful. Amazon should not sell Harvey’s “book” for the same kind of reasons it shouldn’t sell an instruction manual on how to put a baby into scalding hot water.

      It’s censor, like mentor. Common mistakes, but just for the record…

      @Fitz: @Tackle: It’s not really censorship. It’s just a vendor choosing NOT to carry the book. It doesn’t mean people can’t get it from other vendors.

      @2eo: Yep. Now she gets to be a martyr for the self-styled oppressed Christians being deprived of their freedom of speech and religion by the intolerant gays. We’re playing right into their hands.

      She definitely gives off bad scents, but no good sense, since everything that Queerty has reported about her suggests she’s completely off her rocker.

      But I agree that she shouldn’t be censored, just called out for the obsessive h0mophobic big0t that she is.

      With all such hom0phobic (and r@cist, etc.) right w1ngers where’s there’s smoke there’s fire. You can smell hers from that expression alone a mile away!

      Why can’t people spell “censor”. It looks really bad when berating an ignorant bigot when you can’t spell basic words.

      Why can’t people put a simple questioned mark (?) in it’s proper place ,and then double post with the correction? If you cannot get that basic punctuation mark right on the first go,then you are in no position to critique someones spelling. It makes you look really bad.

      @Tackle:
      1. Because it was a typographical error – obvious to the meanest intellect.
      2. You can’t edit comments after you post them by which time it is too late to correct punctuation oversights.
      3. If you want to be scathing, you need more practice.

      It must have been scathing enough. You took the time to respond back.
