Sex “ed” or “pornography” exhibit for teens at Ottawa’s Museum of Science

I am sure that Ottawa-Hull and surrounding area parents and teachers will be just tickled pink to learn that opening tomorrow is a once in a lifetime sex “education” exhibit for teens at the Ottawa Museum of Science and Technology.

Here is how the museum’s website describes the show:

“A unique, award-winning, educational exhibition created by the Montréal Science Centre, SEX: A TELL-all EXHIBITION presents information on sexuality in a scientific, engaging and interactive manner….The exhibition is of interest to parents, high school teachers and health professionals who work with adolescents.

Due to the sensitive nature of the exhibition, visitors under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. (Access to this exhibition will be controlled at all times by museum staff.)”

Award winning?  Due to the sensitive nature of the exhibit?  Excuse me? Given what Kris Sims of the Sun News Network says, it is a lot more than sensitive.  Here, for example, is what the Sun News Network is reporting:

“The Museum of Science and Technology is hosting Sex: A Tell-All Exhibition, opening Thursday. Initially aimed at children 12 and up, organizers quickly boosted the admission age to 16 after some parents were aghast at the graphic displays. ‘It very quickly became apparent to myself and my wife that this was revolting,’ parent Patrick Meagher told QMI Agency.'”

What on earth kind of society are we creating with this kind of exhibit? Is it about educating young people or is it simply pornography geared to youth? I mean, we just got AIDS under control and the creators of this show and museum administrators don’t see anything wrong with the explicit nature and subject matter of this exhibit?

Put another way, has political correctness and the LGBT agenda caused people to lose their common sense?

  1. More proof that gouvernment grants must be eliminated. It doesn’t matter who the receiver is, for it still boils down to taking money from productive workers to give to the non productive. Yes, I say non productive, for were they productive they would not require other people’s money.

  2. I am not so sure this is a government grant per se — rather poor judgement on the part of museum decision makers. In response to the question “Has political correctness and the gay agenda caused people to lose their common sense?” — YES! Perhaps the rest of us should take a cue from those protesting students and protest. I am not sure what else can be done.

  3. Take a look at McGuinty’s new sex-ed. guidelines for elementary and secondary students in Ontario. Some geared for children as young as 8 years old. We let it happen folks.

  4. I believe that it was the producers of this received public money for its production. I agree that it was poor judgement in the case of the museum.

  5. Yes, Joanne, I guess our tax dollars are paying for the museum. I don’t have a source that the Montreal developers got taxpayers money but I’m assuming they did.
