Theres an upcoming event in Calgary that really concerns me, as well as other people.
There is to be a "Naked Water slides and Wave Pool" event happening at Southland Leisure Centre on January 14th 2018. Now this sounds interesting, maybe even a little fun? Until you keep looking into the details and see that it's being advertised as a "all ages, family and kid friendly event".... The purpose of the event is to be able to express yourself in your rawest form; get rid of insecurities and judgement.
I respect the concept and believe in an 18+ setting it could be a popular event. However, having naked children around a bunch of naked adults doesnt seem like a good idea for any reason. Realistically there is alot of mental illness out there that this event could trigger/effect.
- Children with previous sexual abuse traumas will be heavily effected if they attend the event.
- Sexual predators will be on the prowl - having an event like that is just like Christmas to them.
- Extremely high chance of photos and videos being taken without consent, considered child pornography
I have seen a large group of people talking about the event on Facebook and not alot of people seemed to be impressed with the whole idea. Please sign the petition to put this event to rest! Or at least until they make it age appropriate!
Please take this into heavy consideration, and if you have kids or grandkids. Take a look at them and ask yourself if it feels right for them to run around naked with naked older folks. Not all parents make great choices for their kids, so let's not make these bad choices available to them please!
