Unadulterated gold: Amazon.com hates all lesbians. Or, at least one. An open letter, ostensibly to us.
- Dear Consumerist,
I’m writing for help with Amazon’s “Your Lists” feature. I don’t object to Amazon’s attempt to get me to want/buy more by creating ever more wish lists. I do object, however, to the Wedding List. I am a lesbian, and cannot get married in 49 of the 50 states. Seeing that Wedding List prompt every time I visit Amazon is like being greeted with a hot stick in the eye. Could you please prevail on Amazon to introduce a “turn off” switch for the Wedding List?
What do you say, Amazon, a little help for the ladies who like ladies? Or anyone who doesn’t want to be reminded of the matrimonial bliss they could be purchasing right now in the very near future?
Demographic targeting only works if the population slice is smaller than a breadbox warehouse.
