I'm drawing a blank here but about the only thing I can think of that would qualify as close to pornography is the part where Ender beats the shit out of that bully and the book talks about how his medical sheet reads "bruised testicle."

School officials have since said two of the three books the teacher read were determined to have materials (primarily swear words) and, in some instances, subject matter and terminology that school administrators consider inappropriate for the middle school.
According to commonsensemedia.org, which claims it has in-house staff and a team of reviewers who are experts in children's media, technology, health and policy matters, "this book was not originally intended for children. The violence is, at times, quite brutal, as kids kill other kids, though unintentionally, and the main character is admired for his ruthlessly efficient violence, though he himself is disturbed by it."

"Hi, police, I am currently committing the crime of possession of child pornography, here's my name and address..."
"trust your common sense". But this is a code-phrase for "you are as smart as subject-experts in their respective fields".

Intelligent design was brought to you by cavemen thousands of years ago
Cavemen thousands of years ago didn't use dishonest euphemisms to obfuscate their creationism.
obviously illegal stuff leads to a lot of eye-opening attitudes toward issues of sex and gender. For crying out loud, Reddit's statement actually refers to this new rule as a "slippery slope," as if it's somehow more difficult for them not to censor legitimate information if they can't have a subreddit named
You're riding a crazy carpet all the way down the slippery slope: You KNOW that they're pictures taken from facebook, but you jump to the conclusion that they're "obviously illegal" child pornography!
This is what the RIAA/MPAA actually believe!
"We think this stock will do well, because the company's CEO is so charismatic" is Austrian School economic advice.
So, Steve Jobs, then.
Their whole model was built on the idea that cities would decide to create segway lanes.
Their whole model was built on the idea of having a mass-market outlet to lower the production cost of the underlying technology for use in electric wheelchairs. That line about redesigning cities was Steve Job's.
Truth is free, but information costs.
