Amazon removed a best-selling book about sex-change

Three years after the publication of the bestselling book "When Harry became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment" by Dr Ryan T. Anderson, President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) in Washington, Amazon removed the book on gender ideology from its online store on the 20th of February.



Last weekend, Amazon curtailed free speech and dialogue by removing Ryan T. Anderson’s 2018 book “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment“. This happened in the same week that the House of Representatives is planning to pass the Equality Act — a far-reaching and inclusive transgender bill that amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964. 

The book gives an accurate and accessible account of the scientific, medical, philosophical and legal debates surrounding the transgender phenomenon. Amazon has not notified the author or the publisher that the book has been removed, nor have Amazon representatives responded to any of their enquiries.

Many scholars at institutions such as Princeton University, Harvard University, and Oxford University have applauded the book, making the verdict of Amazon even more questionable. It has been commended, for example, by Oxford’s John Finnis as a “focused, informative, fair, clear and fact-based guide to just and sensible politics”.

Anderson has a Christian background and is known for his work in defence of traditional marriage and opposing same-sex marriage.
