A well-known conservative publisher is claiming that Amazon suspended an advertising campaign ahead of the release of one of its books that details how transgender ideology is having harmful effects on young women.  

Regnery Publishing told Fox News on Sunday that they could not buy ad space on Amazon to promote "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," a book written by Wall Street Journal columnist Abigail Shrier. In the book, Shier examines the medical and psychological injury often caused to teenage girls who adopt a transgender lifestyle and undergo physical transitions.

In an email sent to Regnery Publishing, Amazon's advertising support service explained its decision to block the ads, saying, "[the book] contains elements that may not be appropriate for all audiences, which may include ad copy/book content that infers or claims to diagnose, treat, or question sexual orientation. Hence, this campaign will not be allowed to be advertised."

The publisher took to Twitter Sunday, writing, “The cancel culture has made it clear that it despises diversity of opinion, and it will not tolerate science, data, facts, or anything that contradicts the approved narrative.” The Christian Post reported that Regnery has reached out to Amazon to appeal, but that the company  has so far not updated its decision.
