Amazon & Social Responsibility – Pedophile Book, REALLY Amazon?

I’m disturbed on so many levels.

REALLY Amazon?

Perhaps you can recall this. In November of 2008, Motrin released a video which blew up the social media jabber and coined the term Motrin Moms – representing the Moms who spoke out about their disbelief in the video.

Fast forward to November 2010 – and now we have another situation buzzing around but this issueis way more distrubing than a video about Motrin. It involves Amazon.com largest internet retailer is SMACK in the middle of it all. It’s such poor taste – you would think this is a bad joke.

When you read this, what are you first thoughts?

The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure

amazon pedophile books disgusting

Feel free to PUKE. I feel like I am going to. This is an e-book that Amazon is carrying in their Kindle store. I’m not linking to it. And if the title wasn’t sick enough. Here is 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.

There are politics and then there is down right disgusting immoral yuck.  And Amazon is crying censorship – but what about SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY?

Amazon Pedophile Book

Social Responsibility

Social responsibility is an ethical ideology or theory that an entity, be it an organization or individual, has an obligation to act to benefit society at large. This responsibility can be passive, by avoiding engaging in socially harmful acts, or active, by performing activities that directly advance social goals.

AND Even More Disturubing

The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure eBook is now the #65 top seller in the Kindle store. Yep. That means the author and creator of all of this disgusting Amazon non-sense,  Phillip R. Greaves, 2nd is making money off this.

FED Bait

My husband said what if this is FED bait. Where FEDs use a tease to get leads on possible pedophiles. Maybe. Possibly. Doubtfully. Maybe this is an unfunny joke.

Use Your Voice

You have a voice. Use it. Blog, tweet and spread the word. Amazon is the Walmart of the internet. Bringing them down isn’t going to happen. But letting them know your thoughts on this dumb move is essential.  The power of many will get this removed.

    I JUST read an article about them removing the book, but after they previously put out a statement defending themselves on this, I’ll just never see them as the same company again 🙁 And right before Christmas season. DANG YOU, Amazon!
