30. Lol, yes, it is. I first heard the term when I insisted on posting Dahr Jamail's excellent photo

journal of the Iraq war. There were so many beautiful children, dead and wounded, it was heart-rending.

I was on a Right Wing dominated board at the time. They were outraged, I told them that this is what they were supporting and if they didn't like it, they shouldn't support it. Since they supported it, I told them they should be forced to look at what they were supporting, imo of course.

So they got this talking point from somewhere, probably one of their Think Tanks, 'War Porn'. I remember being sickened by it, to use the word 'porn' in relation to dead children. So I kept on posting them. And they kept on calling it 'war porn'. And I kept on telling them they were dead children, babies, like their own if they had them.

Do you play the an instrument, the guitar? That sounds like fun and War Porn would be a good name for a group playing anti-war songs.
