Word coined in 1943 by the Jewish historian Raphael Lemkin to describe the atrocities commited against the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire. It is coined from the root words genos (Greek for family, tribe or race) and -cide (Latin for killing). He first used the word in print in Axis Rule in Occupied Europe: Laws of Occupation - Analysis of Government - Proposals for Redress (1944).
Before World War II, Lemkin was interested in the Armenian Genocide and campaigned in the League of Nations to ban what he called "barbarity" and "vandalism".

Genocide is the act of committing mass murder; usually focused on a particular group, race, or culture. But hell. Any mass murder is technically genocide.
To that idiot who doesn't know all the words to, 'Total Slaughter.'

"Total slaughter, total slaughter,
I won't leave a single man alive...
La de da de dide...genocide...
La de da de dud...an ocean of blood...
Let's begin the killing time."

Masturbation. Simply put, people who debate abortion say killing the undeveloped fetus is genocide. However, billions of lives are lost each day to male masturbation.
Its a shame Timmy #352894 didn't make it. Maybe Timmy #352895 will. Oh, he was lost in that same batch? Must be genocide.

Credit to Debaser for this analogy.
