What's the big deal?

Even covers for like Playboy or Playgirl are sexy, but not pornographic. Come on, I don't think any gay man's magazine showed guys engaging in full-on sex on the cover (that's probably inside the mag, but they're not going to show that part on Amazon). Amazon also carries various motorcycle magazines, and my husband and I purchased them through Amazon - almost every cover shows a bikini-clad girl bent over a bike (same thing with hot-rod car magazines). There's just as much potential for "corruption" of a child from viewing one of those covers of a scantily clad woman as there is from them viewing a scantily clad man.
I agree that the poster seems slightly homophobis - I think it's less the fear of pornography corrupting kids, it's the thought that it's a GAY magazine, and God forbid she might have to explain to her children what that means!
