Barnes and Noble ignored every sexual harassment claim I ever filed. They allowed for an abusive work environment and tried to force me to quit by telling me "I brought this treatment on myself"

I have done much business with this store but I will boycott Barnes & Noble if they DO NOT remove Ivanka Trumps book "Women Who Work!!!"

Who are you that you should decide what people will read, or buy or sell? That's censorship.

Boycott: to not take part in an event, or to not buy or use something as a protest

Censorship: the process of removing parts of books, movies, letters, etc. that are considered inappropriate for moral, religious, or political reasons

This is not about censorship, but about about making a protest against someone who supports the policies of a President who has been proven to mislead the American people on countless occasions. If Ivanka, for example, supports her father's pledge to bring jobs back to America, she should not have merchandise with her name (or pseudonym) on it manufactured overseas. It is ironic that you would accuse me of censorship when in fact the President has made it clear that he feels the First Amendment provides individuals and the media with too much protection.

wrong, you are using your boycott in an effort to force Barnes and Noble to remove a book. You have stated that goal. That is merely censorship through economic means rather than government. Same thing, though.You are obviously gutless anyway. You could not lick Ivankas thousand dollar shoes..."Anonymous".. what a coward.

Who are you that you should decide that someone can't boycott something? Did you not read Anonymous's comment? Anonymous said that they would no longer do business with the store. That, is that person's right to do so. I also agree on the comments below that "protest is an exercise of free speech". So to tell someone they shouldn't exercise that right is censorship.

that is the liberal way. That is why Jonah Goldberg called in "Liberal Fascism." Bet she did not read that one either.

This is the new perversion of liberalism, which once stood for free speech. Todays Liberal is not your daddy's liberal. Not the liberal I was in the 60s and 70s. They ARE the new Nazis. Hitlerian socialists, who think that only their opinions and perversions should be permitted. The new Liberal sicken me, they make me throw up. That is why I left the Democratic party ten years ago. I got tired of vomiting at their lies and hypocrisy.

There is plenty of people that will boycott if they do remove the books for political reasons so move on and find some place else to buy books

It did not take me long to figure out why my 15 year old grandson wants to go to Barnes and Noble all the time. Especially after he was banned from the internet because he was looking at inappropriate internet sites and Youtube. I called the store and was told that there is no filter on the website access at Barnes and Noble stores. Yes, it does take a village, so please do not give kids these tools.

not a controlling grandmother - 71 d 12 h ago

a 15 year old boy is gonna find a way to look at porn even if you abandon him on a deserted island. Stop being such a control freak and give the kid his privacy.

The right to acquire knowledge & information supersedes the desires of a grandmother who apparently wishes to treat a 15-yr old like a 5 yr old. He is not a little child; he should be allowed to make choices & decisions on his own without his grandmother looking over his shoulder & deciding for him.

HI Concerned Grandmother!

We immensely salute your pro-activity in this matter. Such comments as you being "controlling" and your grandson not being a "child," we find without substance. These, are the opinions which are without practical merit.

You're his grandma. He isn't of age. He" is "a kid." And, we agree with you 100% about the store (or any other of this nature) which has pornographic and other non-productive adult content to take special measures to ensure that children don't have access to them. In addition, applicable staff members at the store (and all the others) should be required to occasionally monitor the child's viewing because of intact legal and practical restraints against it.

CG? We believe that you aren't the only guardian of children in the country who has this issue. Since this is really a personal one, of deep concern, you'd probably fair a lot better notifying B&N corporate to take special measures and/or to forward an all-store memorandum to daily enforce and/or to modify policy(if intact regarding this) towards respecting legal mandates and parental wishes against their under-aged children being so vulnerably exposed to this sort moral disease and all its related infestations and troubles in life.

Your gripe, we believe, is probably better heard and acted on through communicating with staff at executive headquarters in NY whom are delegated to effectively addressing this sort of intra-retail deviation or negligence against which there are strict, intact legal parameters and commercial penalties. Corporate may not be aware of this high-risk situation which irresponsible staff are very probably playing with on a daily basis.

In all, as I always say:" The greatest women in the world are moms. But, the greatest moms in the world are PRACTICING!" How great you ARE! You bet! Grandma?

God Bless You, You Family, & Your Home!

*As for those whom object to grandma's exercising her proper, ethical, and natural concern and diligence in this matter, please, know that in order to have an argument you must have someone to participate. So, please, don't waste your time. You can only argue with those whom choose to engage idiocy. That only makes you part of that dysfunction. I've said what should have been said. It's done. No one home!

Your choice: let a normal and healthy boy masturbate privately, or groom him to be ashamed of his healthy tendencies and be forced tostart doing it in public. Nice going, uptight Grandma.

Another grandma - 27 d ago

it looks like your ashamed of your values having to be anonymous. Healthy children do not need to masturbate they need to learn respect for the self and the other sex. Education on human tendencies prevents them from being perverts, li was like grandma and my sons friends parents were like you , they have no respect for anyone. Listen to grandma.

B&N now has become the NAZI occupation in America! Dangerous, the #1 book on Amazon and #2 on teh NYT best seller list has been BANNED in B&N stores! Oh, it's in the warehouse, but "we will not display it in our stores because we do not agree with the political views".

NAZI GERMANY ALL OVER AGAIN. STAY AWAY FROM B&N.

What do you mean by 'racist'? Please give more information. It seems to me that B & N is getting worse & worse when it comes to how they treat customers, black or white. I'm a middle-aged white homeowner, & they treat me like a shoplifter whenever I enter the store; that's especially true for the B & N located in Hillsdale, CA.
