When is it Too Young to Teach Kids Gay BDSM?

Yes, you read that correctly.

The other morning, when travelling along A busy Toronto street, I stumbled upon this window display belonging to the infamous store, The Condom Shack. I had to do a double-take.

Initially, I thought the store was displaying a typical Easter scene with two fluffy bunnies. Had my children been present they would have been so excited to see two cuddly bunnies playing. Upon closer examination, what initally seemed like an innocent festive display was actually homosexual BDSM (bondage, discipline/dominance, submission/sadism, masochism).

The picture clearly depicts two pink, plush, female bunnies, one with a flower behind her ear, and the other with a strap-on penis in the form of a carrot. One of the bunnies is bent over and handcuffed in an obvious sexual pose while the strap-on bunny seems to be “doing it” from behind while celebrating. Just…WOW!

Aside from all of the wrong in this picture, the most disturbing thing is that it is obviously luring to children. By using giant, stuffed, cuddly bunnies, children eager to celebrate the Easter season are immediately drawn to the display. Until the awkward questions ensue.

Who put this together and thought this could possibly be a good idea?

Outrage doesn’t quite touch my feelings on this display. I can’t believe this needs to be stated, but as a parent, I’m very careful to shield my kids from erotica (as I hope all parents do). Where is Advertising Standards Canada? Where is the application of the advertising regulation for children? While the government has been diligent in limiting sugary drink and salty snack advertising advertising to children, I’m inclined to believe these pale in comparison to gay BDSM for children.
So I ask you again, when is it too young to teach children gay BDSM?

I will be contacting the owners of this store to have this offensive display removed. I’ll keep you posted.
