Amazon has apparently removed from its offerings a book that discusses issues with transgender ideology. The author said he wasn’t notified and the company has offered no explanation.



The book, “When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment” by Ryan Anderson, was removed by Amazon around Feb. 21. The exact timing is hard to pinpoint since the author, who is president of the Washington-based think tank Ethics and Public Policy Center, only learned about the move when people informed him that they couldn’t find the book in the online retailer’s inventory, he told the Daily Caller.


“I hope you’ve already bought your copy, cause Amazon just removed my book ‘When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment’ from their cyber shelves,” Anderson wrote in a Feb. 21 tweet.


As of the afternoon of Feb. 22, Amazon’s links to both the hard and electronic copies of the book result in error messages.


Published three years ago, the book argues that the push to encourage individuals who feel like a different gender to undergo sex-change procedures is driven by ideology rather than sound medical advice, according to Princeton University politics lecturer Matthew Franck, who reviewed it in 2018.


“Ryan T. Anderson has written the definitive book on the transgender phenomenon—ranging across medicine, psychology, culture, sociology, law, and public policy,” Franck said. “In doing so, he may have saved the minds and bodies—indeed, the very lives—of people he will never know.”
