Amazon.com defends selling Pedophile “how to” Guide

Sick news ahead!

In a sure-to-go-viral Internet-based campaign, recent revelations have uncovered evidence that online retail book selling giant Amazon.com is once again distributing a ‘how-to’ guide for pedophiles.

Amazon.com is defending their actions of distributing the Kindle electronic reader guide, and in an interview with Business Insider web magazine, responded by saying,Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions.

Here’s the verbatim description from the Amazon.com: The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure eBook: Phillip R Greaves 2nd: Kindle Store website, under the heading of “Editorial Review”:

“Product 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.”

When interviewed, the book’s author, Phillip R. Greaves, a 47-year-old former nurses’ aide from Pueblo, Colorado, said, “They’re accusing me of wanting to hurt children. They’re accusing me of encouraging pedophilia and all these other things. But that’s not why I wrote the book. I wrote the book to establish guidelines so that people would behave in a manner that is non-injurious to each other, for one, and, for two, to communicate the fact that these people who are so different in maturation, etc., that when they develop relationships, they use certain principles that regular people, adults, would be well to attend.

In an interview with ABC News, Greaves said he believed it was possible “to have a loving, sexual relationship with a child.”

Greaves confessed to being abused sexually as a child, and to abusing others sexually as a child, saying, “The only personal perspective it was written from was that I was introduced to sex at the age of 7 by a 10-year-old girl. It was oral sex. And I carried on through that having that kind of sex with children until I was about 15. And everybody involved enjoyed it.

While Amazon.com claims to have a “policy” against peddling porn, they have no policy against purveying how-to guides for child molesting. This is not the first time Amazon.com has been discovered aiding and abetting child sexual molesters.

In October 2002, the United States Justice Foundation accused Amazon.com of “contributing to the potential rape and molestation of children” through their online sale of “Understanding Loved Boys and Boylovers,” by David L. Riegel.

The USJF gave Amazon 30 days to remove the book from its site or face “protracted litigation.”

Seattle-based Internet retail giant Amazon.com sold other pedophile-related books, one apparently published by the North American Man-Boy Love Association called “Loving Boys.”

At that time, in a related development, the USJF filed a criminal complaint against Amazon.com with the Seattle Police Department. Numerous boycotts by groups and private citizens ensued, and a publisher canceled its contract with Amazon.

Greaves was asked why he wrote a “code of conduct” that seems to endorse child sexual abuse and said, “I’m not saying I want them around children; I’m saying if they’re there that’s how I want them to behavior. I can see where they would come to that kind of conclusion and to a certain extent I wanted that kind of notoriety to effect the book. I wanted it to effect sales.

Since launching his how-to for pedophiles on Amazon.com, he has garnered over 2400 complaints, and has sold only one copy.

Greaves said, “It hasn’t increased sales; it just has a lot of negative responses coming in.
