I just did a Dr Seuss search on eBay and they were still coming up for sale.
So did you purchase any? This doesn't mean that sales transactions are approved.
Why would they allow the items to be for sale if they won’t allow their sales?
Why not? Appearances?
Apparently the hubbub is about only a specific few books.
Only a few NOW!

This is the mindset at the beginning of the path that leads to totalitarianism.

I’m not agreeing with the decision at all. I’m just pointing out that this is being argued as though it’s all Dr Seuss books when it’s currently only a few.

So selective 'book burning' is okay with you?

No. I just posted that I’m against this move. My point was that this is being argued as though it’s all dr Seuss books when in reality it’s only a few.

You still didn't answer my question. Answer it or bow out of this discussion gracefully.

You didn’t see the first sentence in my response?

Ebay is free to make it's own business decision
I wish you were consistent on that. But you arent.
Its all about sides with you people.
Another unfounded claim. The family that owns the rights to the 6 works have the right to not publish them as well. If you own a copy of one of them you can sell it to whomever you please.

IMO it's stupid. What's next, canceling caricature art and artists? If that's woke, don't wake me.
Annie Reneau states in her article, “Dr. Seuss Estate Says It Will Stop Publishing 6 Books With 'Hurtful and Wrong' Depictions”:

“While there has been a predictable uproar about "canceling" or "banning" Dr. Seuss, this move to remove the problematic books came from the Dr. Seuss estate itself, not some amorphous "cancel culture" mob. It's only six books out of 50 that will no longer be published so they don't keep putting out hurtful images. Some parents and educators have decided there are other authors they prefer to use to help kids learn to read due to Geisel's history—but that's not the same as banning his books. Some libraries and school districts have stopped highlighting Dr. Seuss books, but they are still available on the shelves.”

Despite the fact it was a decision made by managers of the author’s estate, the trump Nazis made a big stink using their “cancel culture” bullsh!t. As usual, the facts made no difference to the trump Nazis. To them, facts are just pesky little details that can easily be ignored.

Kids shouldn’t be reading racist books by a fake doctor anyways. They should be learning about sexuality. there is so much bigotry against the LGBTQ community that kids need to learn from the beginning , while they’re young , before religious extremists and bigots engrain hateful things about LGBTQ people.
They should also be given the choice of being a she/him before they’re too old to change
Poe's Law strikes again.

They only stopped publishing them because of the Nazis. If you think they came up with the idea themselves, you better think again:

The books are currently unavailable on Amazon.

This is not the first time Dr. Seuss has come under fire: In 2017, a librarian criticized First Lady Melania Trump's donation of Seuss books, which are "steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes." This year, Loudon County schools in Virginia ordered librarians to stop mentioning Dr. Seuss, citing a study that found there were few racial minority characters in his books. (Most Seuss characters aren't even human.)



Gee, now do you think this "study" was conducted by a right-wing organization? Of course it's all part of the cancel culture.

You mean they could change? If they should be given the opportunity to screw themselves up for the rest of their lives, why not just let them drink alcohol as well?

NAZIS didn’t burn all books either.
