Why ban just the ebooks, and not the hard(no pun intended) copies too?

Also why leave most of the equally explicit straight publications alone? If you're going to enforce a rule then at least apply it equally to all material.

I didn't read the article closely, but could it possibly be that it is Manga and something that kids might like? is there currently straight manga porn?

I don't read manga of any sort, but from what I understand, most of it is heterosexual material aimed at the straight male audience.

Manga is published in a much wider variety of categories than comics in the US. Major categories include Shōnen (target audience younger males, largely action driven), Shōjo (target audience younger females, largely character or romance driven), Senin (target adult males, possibly sexual content, or possibly just topics that would be boring to younger males), and Josei (target adult females, ditto.)

Yaoi is actually read largely by heterosexual females in Japan. There is also Yuri manga.

Well, if you don't like it, don't buy it. I don't consume porn but I consider good, straightforward porn as much more acceptable than the rubbish churned out by Glenn Beck & Co. Yet I wouldn't ask Amazon to remove these either.

This attitude of censoring the content provided to their customers that is repeatedly being shown by both Apple and Amazon is one of the reasons I wouldn't buy their products at the moment.

Well, Bezos and Jobs always said they knew best. Time to run out and spend more money at Amazon to let Bezos know we approve of his censorship attempts to save us from ourselves (said dripping with sarcasm).
