Killography? I Know It When I See It.

Old story, but I like the idea: we have "pornographic," so why not "killographic"?

"If pornographic is the 'graphic depiction of sex,' then killographic should enter our vocabulary to describe the 'graphic depiction of brutal violence,"' says David Walsh of The National Institute on Media and the Family, an independent, nonprofit group.

Agreed. Similarly, the backwards standards of American TV appall me. It's OK to folks getting killed off in all manner of superviolent ways, but you still can't show a woman's nipple.
