Christmas is coming and our pre-Christmas cleaning is underway! This naturally means I have a bunch of stuff to offer you all for cheaps! ^-^

I'll list my books and DVDs below, but since I know video & audio cassettes are going out of fashion, I'll ask first, if anyone is interested. If there is anyone willing to pay for tapes (video or audio) let me know and I'll list them. If not, I will pass them on to the local charity shop...

So, if you're interested in any of the below, leave a comment! This weekend they're going to the used book shop!

In a time when gays and lesbians are making strides toward equal rights, Amazon.com has taken a step back. A step back to a time when you didn't ask and didn't tell, a time when you hid your love for fear of persecution, a time when even the suspicion of homosexuality was enough to get beaten or even killed. Amazon.com has reclassified gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender books and movies as an adult product which blocks them from their sales rankings.

However, like Mark Probst said, "if they are really going to try and exclude so-called “adult” material, then how come this has an Amazon ranking?" And there are plenty of other *adult* themed books still ranked as well, as shown by this list. Curiously, if you put "homosexuality" into a search of their site, and you'll find books on "preventing" and "curing" homosexuality, but you won't find Brokeback Mountain or Tipping the Velvet or other previously high ranking books or movies.

Today, Amazon.com claims this was just a glitch that they are fixing now, but some authors lost their ranking way back in February, and only now is it getting any attention. And if it's just a glitch then why tell authors their books have been "classified as an Adult product" and "In consideration of our entire customer base, we exclude "adult" material from appearing in some searches and best seller lists. Since these lists are generated using sales ranks, adult materials must also be excluded from that feature." Obviously that's not just a glitch.

Like so many others are twittering, AmazonFAIL! Please sign the petition.

If anyone is interested in intense poetry, this book is for you!

Pain in the Arms of Joy

(And no one can deny Mr. Austin's incredible hawt-ness... ~_^ )

Here's a little sample, fitting for today:

I Think Cupid's Out To Get Me

I think Cupid's out to get me
What did I ever do to that little man
Year after year of heartache
And now he sends another man

The way he looks at me
Makes my heart melt
And I think I do the same for him
This way I've never felt
I know that I could fall in love
If only he would let me
But he is taken by someone else

I think Cupid's out to get me
