The American Bookseller’s Association is apologizing for including Abigail Shrier’s best-selling book, “Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters” in its July promotional mailing to approximately 750 retail outlets.
After receiving backlash from both members and Twitter rubberneckers, the 121-year-old organization, issued a lengthy statement, saying, “An anti-trans book was included in our July mailing to members. This is a serious, violent incident that goes against ABA’s ends policies, values, and everything we believe and support. It is inexcusable.”
The statement went on, “We apologize to our trans members and to the trans community for this terrible incident and the pain we caused them. We also apologize to the LGBTQIA+ community at large, and to our bookselling community. Apologies are not enough. We’ve begun addressing this today and are committed to engaging in the critical dialogue needed to inform concrete steps to address the harm we caused. Those steps will be shared in the next three weeks.”
