Whalephant Whale bone porn’ at Vancouver museum should be censored, says offended mom

The saucy scrimshaws included in a new exhibit at the Vancouver Maritime Museum are making waves among some visitors.

The Tattoos & Scrimshaw: The Art of the Sailor exhibit includes about two dozen carvings in sperm whale teeth dating back to the mid-19th century. Some are depictions of sexual acts, while others are carved with romantic poems, dedications to long-lost loves, “a peep at the mermaid,” words expressing sailors’ longing for land, and more than a few topless ladies.

Right? After reading it I was going to pick one good quote (cause, honestly, everything out of this busybody's mouth is crap) and throw up the same rolly-eyed smile.

Some people are so up tight about sex it makes you wonder if they are ever able to have a stable sexual relationship with another human being.

Seriously.. Nudity.. In a Museum? Hide it from the children! Lord knows no children ever see nudity (much less "sex") before the age of eighteen..

In fairness.. While I'm never above a good old fashioned "Lets point out all the ways the 'small government thing' shifts gears once it's not about helping poor people and disempowered people", unless I missed it she isn't calling for a law.

Gee, who would have expected sexual language and subject matter depictions in an exhibition of art by sailors.
