Amazon in the US continues making moral judgments, in this case censoring an image of two lesbians kissing (nothing more!) on the cover of this UK lesbian erotica book by Charlotte Cooper.

Compare these two links:

Update: Same censored cover on B&N.com:

I'm afraid the bigots are learning to manipulate the system too well.

And the systems are flawed and open to this sort of external manipulation.

(If you look at "Customers Who Bought Related Items Also Bought" on Amazon, the titles are all noxious things like COMING OUT STRAIGHT, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE GAY, CAN HOMOSEXUALITY BE HEALED?, etc.)
