Maybe not truly censorship, but YA author Julie Anne Peters reports in her blog that a high school student was beaten up for doing a report on Julie's book, Keeping You a Secret, a lesbian love story.
That just sucks. This is like libraries being forced to hide gay/lesbian/bi/trans/etc. books behind locked cabinets so kids won't get ideas. Heaven forbid that we actually let people read what they need to read! Anyway, how this is censorship in my mind is that the others censored the girl for daring to attempt to open their minds about l/b/g/t issues. That just sucks.
