A Letter to

I was checking out my Twitter feed today and I stumbled upon an article on Huffington Post that really upset me.   It talked about a 2012 calendar that basically spews hatred every month of the year... and that stocks the calendar. 

As you may know from some of my previous posts, homophobia really pisses me off so I fired off this email to the customer service account:

It has today come to my attention that you are selling a 2012 calendar titled "I'm Not Gay, I'm Just a Sissy" (

This disturbs and disgusts me deeply and I do not wish to have any association with a company that would sell a product of hatred, such as this calendar.

Please tell me that Amazon plans to remove this from their catalog and issue an apology to the LGTB community for their poor judgement in stocking this item in the first place.  If this is something Amazon does not intend to do then can you please instruct me as to the steps I must take to have my registration removed from your site.  I will not be making any purchases, nor directing my loved ones to the site through my wishlist to make purchases, with a company that advocates hatred and homophobia and, more disturbingly, hopes to make a dollar off of it.

Thank you,


If you have an account with Amazon and this upsets you as much as it does me, then I encourage you to send a similar message to Amazon.  Tell them, through your money, that you will not tolerate a company that hopes to make money off of intolerance.
