Ryan T. Anderson, president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and former Heritage Foundation senior research fellow, recently appeared on Fox News after Amazon pulled his book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Movement. Anderson and others call the book a thoughtful discussion of problems with the transgender movement.
The book was published in 2018. Why did Amazon pull it now? Anderson said he doesn’t know, and that Amazon never reached out to him. Amazon hasn’t responded to his publisher’s request for information.
Congress is gearing up to push the so-called Equality Act this week. The measure would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes.
Anderson warned viewers about the future of censorship. “So if you’re concerned about what Big Tech can do if you dissent from gender ideology, just wait to see what Big Government can do,” he said. “Both of them are threats to our liberties and to our flourishing.”
In 2019, Anderson spoke to members of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education’s clergy network about the dangers of the Equality Act.
