So funny. We're talking about a complete stranger here, not family or friends. I certainly don't think children should be taught that it is acceptable for strange men to expose their private parts to them.
And different children react differently. I am reliably informed that some children can find the sight of a strange men's genitalia deeply upsetting and distressing, some possibly wouldn't. I doubt whether "motive" comes into it, so the claim "well officer there was no sexual motive, I'm just hugely proud of my penis and thought the children playing in the park should have the opportunity to see this thing of great beauty" or whatever other justification is used, holds little water.
Most people accept that children should be protected from intimidating situations of a sexual nature, and a stranger standing before them naked can be very intimidating to some children/people. In the same way as children should be protected from porn, assuming of course that witnessing natural sexual acts isn't completely "harmless" to children.
Have to say grum for someone who gets all politically correct over words, freely labeling them as racist or sexist, and emphasising their alleged offensiveness, you are remarkably insistent that people shouldn't be offended by things which are so clearly offensive.
Presumably you would pull me up if I claimed that I was "popping down to the pakishop", but you would defend my right to saunter into the shop stark naked giving other customers and staff an eyeful, insisting that they shouldn't be shocked or offended.
What is it you think is so threatening/disturbing to children about a naked human being?
Tell you what grum, if you don't know the answer to that question why don't post a graphic picture of Stephen Gough as he would like the world to see him - proudly displaying his genitals ? After all, you won't get warned or banned, 'cause there's nothing wrong with it, is there ?
