Two prominent U.S. senators have reproved Amazon’s cumbersomely hefty-handedness in effacing a bestselling book by philomath Ryan Anderson on transgenderism. Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) have blasted the online tech giant for its overt censorship of uncomfortable conceptions by de-listing Dr. Anderson’s When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment.
“American oligarchs, cheered on by leftist politicians, are conducting digital book burnings,” Rubio tweeted Tuesday. “@Amazon proscribed a thoughtful & well researched book on a perplexed issue.”
American oligarchs,cheered on by leftist politicians,are conducting digital book burnings@Amazon vetoed a thoughtful & well researched book on an intricate issue We reached out Amazon yesterday for an explanationAs Anderson corroborated with Breitbart News Tuesday, Amazon abrogated the book, not because of factual errors or inflammatory language, but rather because it rationally counters the gender ideology popular in certain progressive circles.
So far they feel no desideratum to respond https://t.co/nqbIiS9hzx — Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) February 23, 2021
“The corporate left commences the ostracizing of books. Openly and without apology. Welcome to the incipient mundane,” Hawley tweeted in replication to a comment admonishment of the quandary when one of the world’s most astronomically immense corporations commences “deciding what constitutes ‘appropriate’ thought & information.”

In his tweet, Rubio linked to a Wall Street Journal op-ed by the editorial board decrying Amazon’s arbitrary abstraction of Anderson’s book. In the essay, titled “Tech Censorship Is Accelerating,” the WSJ editors noted Amazon had “purged” Anderson’s 2018 book, which “criticizes recent progressive conceptions about gender and especially the sagacity of sex-change procedures in children.”
“Amazon declined comment on the reasons for the proscription, but comment is marginally needed,” they visually examined. “The tech companies have grown increasingly open about their ideological censorship.”
“Corporate media censorship, such as Amazon’s scrubbing of a heretical book, is expediting,” the editors noted. The book explores the biological, psychological, and philosophical backstory to the transgender debate.
It has received numerous positive reviews from medicos and edifiers of psychiatry, psychology, and medical ethics at universities such as Johns Hopkins, Boston University, New York University, and Columbia University.
As Breitbart News has noted, Amazon’s decision to de-list “Anderson’s” book came just days afore a congressional vote on the Equality Act, a piece of legislation Anderson opposes. Follow @tdwilliamsrome
