Amazon Disses the Gays

Amazon, everybody's favorite online bookseller, has just implemented a policy that removes so-called "adult" books from its rankings and search results, making them harder to find. The problem?

This really sucks because, when I do a search for "Brazilian soccer team locker room photo book," nothing good shows up. I bet they're hiding something from me.
