Starting June 2017, new GIRLFIGHT Books, DVDs, Blurays, and digital
content will adopt its own Rating system called the GIRLFIGHT Censorship
Classification Code as part of its newly-adopted social responsibility
initiative so consumers can make better decisions on the products
they may bring into their household or business.
This code is composed of 3 different rating systems: Content, Age, and Premium Cable Channel Labels. These codes are published inside a long box on the product artwork or in the product description for online content. In some cases, when a customer feels the Age Rating isn't justified they can find assurance by the Content Rating System.
The Content Rating System:
The content rating system is perhaps the most helpful system in identifying a film's content and allowing the consumer to judge whether or not content is deemed inappropriate or offensive. It approaches a no-nonsense, staright-forward practical Alphabetical system.
A = Abuse. Abuse towards a female, minor, or animal, even staged, no
matter the abuser.
The "X" for "explicit" is derived from the x in Explicit where some people in today's society still view this kind of content as explicit despite no full nudity is shown. If full nudity is shown it will be rated with an "n".
Whether or not the use of any content, whether important to the story or gratuituous, does not necessarily reflect the rating given. For example, a film with a sex scene where the characters are under the sheets with nothing shown will still be rated as sex even though it's needed to tell a story. a film about a historical war would still be rated with a V despite violence is an unfortunate casulty of war.
Please note that the inclusion of multiple content ratings does not imply they occur simultaneously in the film. for example, if a film has been rated with the letters "m" and "k" this does not mean that a character depicting a minor or an actor who is a minor is killed in the film. A rating of "G" and "I" does not necessarily mean the infections depicted in the film contribute to the gore in the film.
In order to receive the 0+ age rating, a film can ONLY have the content ratings of F or M. Any additional rating and unfortunately the film requires either a 13+ or 16+ age rating. content rated with S or X warrants at least 13+. A rating of N or Y immediately warrants the content as 16+.
The Age Rating System:
Unfortunately, we do not find most content that either we produce or the mainstream produces to deem it as 0. Most so-called children's cartoons, even today, depicts violence (Scooby Doo, The Smurfs) of some sort and therefore the use of the "v" warrants, at least a 13+ rating despite it could be marketed for persons under this age.Premium Cable Channel Content Label Rating System:
Any product released by GirlFightMovie.com, LLC will also bear the "NR" rating to indicate it has not been rated by the MPAA for any products not rated by the MPAA. Should a GIRLFIGHT product be rated by the MPAA then this code will not be used to rate that product.
As adopted in 1994 for premium channels like HBO, Showtime, etc., for any GIRLFIGHT product depicting the NR (Not Rated) system, following will be the common premium channel labels that relate to GIRLFIGHT content, separated by commas.

Mainstream films' and examples to how they would be rated by this system (and the Age Rating):
The GIRLFIGHT Censorship classification code is not an official rating system recognized by any world governments. The system is only used by GIRLFIGHTMOVIE.COM, LLC and its associated companies to provide the consumer a foundation in making sound decisions involving age-appropriateness content for their household or business. The system does not block content from being seen or sold by anyone not within the appropriate age rating and no refunds will be offered for any products purchased by a person below the appropriate age rating. GirlFightMovie.com, LLC is not in the business of frequently producing content with explicit nudity but understand there may be times when this is necessary. GirlFightMovie.com, LLC does not produce what the MPAA calls NC-17, X or XXX-rated content and therefore has no rating systems for this type of content.
The system may be used by any third
party so long as the link to this Ratings site is left in tact.
