Exactly. Both sides have valid reasoning on this.

The thread has really changed topic, too.

Because we been talking about minorities, no real issues as long as it is minorities. Where is the white caucasian straight only section at Amazon? You can specifically look for any minority, but you cannot specifically exclude them (that I know of). It would be clearly considered racist, and yet segregating minorities by giving them their own little safe place is still fueling it.

For online stores it is, in theory, easy for discoverability if the lists are generated dynamically on the fly. No matter how you traverse the tree, you shall find the book. As long as it is about content, and not author ethnicity.
