"Amazon is selling an e-book entitled "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure," and shocked consumers across the nation now are calling for a boycott of the online retail giant." Reports Fox News.

Umm, I pretty much am. As a mother and a woman, no, a HUMAN, I'm disgusted and will not be buying anything from this site and will be disabling the links from my site to theirs. This is what the author says about his book:

"This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian [sic] rules for these adults to follow," a product description reads. "I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught."

He wants pedophiles on the streets sooner, he also can't spell, sorry couldn't help notice that. As a liberal I'm usually the first to say freedom of speech but there is always a line and this is it. There aren't pictures so somehow this doesn't fall under child pornography, I'm not interested in technicalities it's just wrong and I know where my money isn't going,...any where this book is being sold.

    It boggles the mind that anyone would try to sell a book like that on Amazon. Apparently Amazon withdrew it immediately, and I imagine the author will be watched like a hawk from now on. Maybe it's good to flush these people out? I'm certainly not going to fault Amazon because of one creepy self-publisher. I don't expect Amazon to censor books, in fact I wouldn't want them to. I would rather leave that, if necessary, to publicly accountable government officials rather than a private corporation.

  2. according to Anderson Cooper and the articles I've been reading Amazon is still selling the book. They claim it would be censorship yet they refuse to sell porn. I don't want censorship either but this is so clearly a different case. Because this doesn't have pictures it doesn't count as child pornography. I'm not interested in technicalities, all I know is its wrong and so should they.

    Ugh. Why would anyone even bother to write such a thing, much more sell it? I completely agree with you. I prefer to think of myself as pretty liberal-minded, but my "liberal-mindedness" does not stretch that far.

  4. self education can be tough for some students to stay on task when no one is supervising their work.

  5. Soledad, it can also be difficult to stay on task when you have three children under the age of 6.
    It is also difficult for me to understand why some people feel the constant need to be negative. Especially to people they've never met and do not know at all.
