Children exposed to nudes.

100_2426 Even though parents have to approve out-of-school trips for their children, at least one apparently didn’t realize what an art museum might have on display. The parent was highly offended that his or her child saw a naked statue at the museum. The poor child – who no doubt has seen Brittney, Jessica and many other “stars” cavorting in next to nothing on TV – was badly traumatized by the experience and the parent complained.

Editorial: A lesson in the art of pleasing parents | The Bryan-College Station Eagle:

This sort of thing drives me crazy. I don’t understand how we can live in a society that is both prudish and exhibitionist – two ends of the spectrum. I suspect it has to do with the fact that both are whiplashing from the other. but I digress.

This reminds me of that Simpsons episode with the David. I think it is so sad that prudishness has reached a point where a classic art form is ‘traumatic/’ Now, there is a lot of difference between nudes ad being nekkid, and there is a huge difference between an artistic nude and pornography. but these knee-jerk reactions sicken me. Kids are exposed to a lot more sexual innuendo and nudity in daily life but a museum visit where they happen to see a nude is traumatic? give me a break. first, parents should realize that galleries and museums frequently have nude paintings and sculptures on display, and second, get over it! or do kids bathe fully clothed now?

There is a lot of controversy surrounding this issue and whether the school fired the teacher involved for this specific complaint or for ‘performance issues’ in the past. All I know is this is a big fuss over nothing. if the parent didn’t want their child exposed to such things then they should have thought about it and not signed the form. seeing as they gave permission they are just being complete whiners. get over it and get a clue.

  6. EWWWWWW….

    Is this ANOTHER case of adults being wrapped up in their children’s sex lives?

    SICK SICK SICK!!!

    When we were all tiny kids, my brother used to do penis-puppet shows over the back of my dad’s stuffed easy chair. We knew enough to leave our parents out of it, but we just got sick laughing.

    But it may have warped me:

    “Rat with a t-shirt that sings and tells jokes” is what I think when I see a penis now.

  7. The very idea that any human child could be traumatized by viewing a sculpture of an unclothed human being is absolutely bizarre. I suppose we have our right-wing religious nutcases to thank for this ignorance and idiotic perverted belief. I wonder if they will be traumatized by imagining the sound of my one hand clapping, while creatively visualizing my single finger salute.

  9. I think, each home or parents should at least gradually start the education of their kids about nudity, nude things, arts and the like, at home. So when they go out, they may be able to avoid such traumatic experience.

    My cents.

  10. Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?

    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Bless you!
