A recent performance at a Canadian art exhibition, “Love Me Gender,” has provoked controversy due to the explicit nature of its content. The performance involved a male artist exposing his genitals to an audience that included parents and children, some apparently as young as ten years old. The reaction of the adult audience members shown in a video of the incident appeared largely indifferent, with no attempt to shield their children from the nudity on display.
The Musée de la Civilisation, the venue for the exhibition, offers only a nebulous warning on their website that the show includes “explicit anatomical elements and partial nudity scenes.” This advisory seems to downplay the extent of the nudity involved in the performance. The museum’s site further suggests that children should be accompanied by adults to help guide their experience and “facilitate discussions about gender diversity”.
Jay Richards, director of the Richard and Helen DeVos Center for Life, Religion, and Family at The Heritage Foundation, expressed concern over the incident, stating that it demonstrates the extent to which gender ideologues are committed to the sexualization of children. According to Richards, this trend is evident not just in art exhibitions like the one in question, but also in school classrooms and local libraries.
It’s noteworthy that one of the exhibition’s producers has previously authored an illustrated sex encyclopedia for teenagers. This work discussed topics such as the Kama Sutra, contraceptives, transgenderism, hypersexuality, and challenged traditional views of virginity and purity.
