Some Banned Books

Banned in some British libraries because of homosexual subtext
To illustrate the often idiotic reasons for banning books here are a few banned books.

"James" was banned for obscenity and violence, while "The Witches" was banned for sexism and devaluing the life of a child.
Banned because of the word, "nigger", which whilst not acceptable today was of its period.
The most absurd of all - Both the Merriam Webster and the American Heritage Dictionaries have been banned in various schools. The Merriam Webster was banned in a California elementary school in January 2010 for its definition of oral sex. "It's just not age appropriate," a district representative said.
