Why are some of these "corrupting?"

Robot 6 says for "Banned Books Week" it's going to take a look at "corrupting" comics. The question is, though, why are some of those on its list ... "corrupting"??

The second item on its list -- how is this "corrupting"?

The third item is about the graphic novel March, about the American Civil Rights Movement. It had direct input from Rep. John Lewis, who lived through it. How is this "corrupting"?

How is the third item "corrupting"?

In fact, how are any of the entries aside from the first "corrupting"? (That has to do with the classic book Seduction of the Innocent about the -- here it is! -- corrupting influence of comicbooks on youth.) The last entry discusses a bit about diversity in comics, but what, exactly, is "corrupting"? There's a mention of a panel discussion about "Representations of race, ethnicity, gender, and disability in comics," but again, I fail to see the "danger" in that.

This isn't the first time Robot 6 and others have made questionable judgments about comicbook "banning," potential or actual. Back in March they were miffed that the graphic novel Persepolis was taken out of a high school library, despite adult content. Here's some other examples. As noted at the immediate link, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund sure seems ... "choosy" about whom it protects and goes after.
