Sorry to crash this forum, but, as a friend to several same-sex parent families, I'm just sick over this. Amazon has decided to derank any book that it deems "gay." These books include classics like James Baldwin's Giovanni's Room and Mark Doty's Firebird, as well as nonfiction titles such as Gay Dads: A Celebration of Fatherhood, Families Like Mine: Children of Gay Parents Tell It Like It Is and Love Makes a Family: Portraits of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Parents and Their Families. What that does to/for these books is take them out of the best seller lists and lowers their visibility on the site.
