Give it up, morality crusade.  This is a microcosm of a larger controversy as old as mankind.  It is impossible to control, or even reasonably set boundaries, beyond obvious examples like materials involving child abuse (and even there, real control is largely illusionary).  Attempts to declare pornography as somehow verboten but graphic violence acceptable, are tilting at windmills in an age where a leading television series is Game of Thrones and a best-selling book is 50 Shades of Grey.  Any reasonable person would be offended by much of what some people consider to be entertainment -- animal abuse in particular makes me incredibly angry.  But attempting to control public viewing of materials as discussed in this article is a losing proposition, one that simply leads the way toward expanding and hopeless (but still very damaging) censorship regime attempts. - Lauren
