Homosexuality is not a disease, stop selling books to cure it #dontcureme

Can you cure something that is not a disease? That is what Richard Cohen’s book promises: that it can cure homosexuality. And that is why a week ago I started an online petition to the three major booksellers in Spain - El Corte Inglés, La Casa del Libro and Amazon- to stop selling this book. After over 40.000 people joined my petition, they did, except for Amazon. 

And this is why I want the petition to go international. Amazon is a global company and by selling this book it is helping to spread misconceptions and creating the breeding ground for homophobia. But it can be stopped. By supporting this petition you will be sending a clear message to Amazon to follow the example of other major booksellers and remove this book from its catalogue.


In 1990 the World Health Organization excluded homosexuality from its International Classification of Diseases, but it seems that some authors have not realized yet. Companies have to understand that they should not continue to reinforce misconceptions about homosexuality. Let them know by signing this petition.

      Homosexuality is not a disease for goodness sake! And in every case of so called 'deprogramming' it cause a load of psychological problems in people I would coin 'victims'!

      Somebody needs to whack this guy over the head while playing 'Born the Way' by Lady GaGa. Frankly, I'm not a fan of her, but she's got a point. you're born gay, you're born straight, nuff said.

      You can cure a disease such as chickenpox, but homosexuality is something that can never be cured.

      Does Amazon sell curing black books? This is hatred, plain and simple. It should be relegated to a hatred website, not sold on Amazon.com.

      This guy sells hate for his own personal gain. Amazon should be ashamed. Everyone is equal in this world.
