People can be offended by many different words. They don't necessarily need to be curse words. Books should not be banned due to language. Sometimes the language is needed to set the mood or create a personality. If a person does not care for the language used, they can simply put the book down and not read it. I do wonder if a rating system similar to what Video Games have would prevent so many books from being challenged or banned.
