A Danish TV show for children is asking young kids aged 7-14 to comment on naked adult bodies, stirring controversy. 

The program, “Ultra Strips Down,” puts a live audience of children in front of naked adults to “encourage body positivity,” as explained by the show’s producers to the New York Times. The program is seen on DR, a national broadcaster, and featured through the on-demand children’s channel, Ultra, according to the NYT. 

Young children are exposed to adult bodies of all sizes and ages who disrobe in front of them during the show, reports the NYT. Ultra’s producers see the show as an educational tool to combat body shaming, according to the same article.   

However, there has been controversy among Danes regarding the show’s display of nudity to minors. 

Peter Skaarup, group chairman of the Danish People’s Party, has openly criticized the children’s program produced by the Danish branch of Warner Bros. International Television Production. Skarrup argued that the show’s content is too extreme for its young viewers in a recent Facebook post discussed in B.T, a Danish publication.

Skarrup claimed that it is “too early” to be exposing children as young as seven to male and female genitalia, according to the NYT and B.T. 

News of the Ultra Strips Down TV program comes amidst intense outrage over Nettflix’s Cuties, an award-winning film that saw backlash from viewers who accused the movie of over-sexualizing young girls.

At the Danish TV Festival, Ultra Strips Down was honored as the best children’s program of 2019, according to NYT, despite the program’s controversial nature. Ultra Strips Down is now in its second season through DR.


HD Editors Note: What Does This Have To Do With Bible Prophecy?

Ken Ham in his article, “Drag Queen Story Hour Says ‘Love Has No Age,'” explained that the reason why we are currently seeing this sexualization of children and the moved toward the acceptance of heinous acts such as pedophilia is that society as a whole has turned its back on God:

Unhinged from the truth of God’s Word, we’re only going to continue to see evils like pedophilia destroy our children, our families, and our nation. What’s the solution? A return to the authority of the Word of God! Parents—train your children to think foundationally from God’s Word. Giving them this foundation for their thinking will allow them to see through the lies of the world and discern truth from error. Don’t let them get “tossed to and fro by the ever-changing waves” of cultural pressure and opinion. And teach them how to answer the attacks of our day that are leveled at God’s Word—particularly the book of Genesis, which is foundational to all doctrine and the Christian worldview.

Our evil culture, in rebellion against the Creator, is desperately trying to normalize and celebrate depravity. We need generations of believers who will stand boldly on the authority of God’s Word and ceaselessly proclaim the light of the gospel and the truth of God’s Word in the midst of incredible darkness.

The preconditioning of children to sin is also something that the Bible does not treat lightly:

Matthew 18:6 KJV – “But whoso shall offend [cause to sin/stumble] one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

Parents are being pushed out, but we must not abandon our posts! The Bible instructs parents in Proverbs 22:6 to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” This verse is all the more relevant in a world where our children’s innocence is continuously in the crosshairs.
