'Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure' Removed from Amazon
Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: Philip R. Greaves II Kindle Book No Longer on Amazon
Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure, an e-book by Philip R. Greaves II, was removed from Amazon.com after web-wide outrage.
Amazon originally defended its decision to allow the Pedophile's Guide, which advocated adult-child sex, saying that, as a company, they do not support either criminal acts or censorship. However, the web disagreed vehemently.
TechCrunch points out that, just before it was pulled, Philip Greaves' book was the 158,221st best-selling Kindle book.
This book can’t actually be about that, can it? Well, here’s the description:
This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian rules for these adults to follow. 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.
“Liter” aside, yes, this is outrageous.
Eventually, Amazon gave in as more and more people called for a boycott against the ubiquitous bookseller.
An Amazon employee emphasized that "Understanding Loved Boys and Boylovers" was "not a 'how-to' manual for molesting children. The author simply expresses his point of view about what he feels are misunderstood."
"Pedophile's Guide" also triggered mounting outrage on Twitter and beyond. A chorus of Twitter users is calling for Amazon to pull the book, and a campaign to push the hashtag #BoycottAmazon into Twitter's top trends is underway.
