When a robotic toy panda twerks, can we agree that the sexual revolution knows no boundaries and never hits the brakes?

This toy was not at a “naughty novelties” store. No, this in the WalMart toy section—the children’s toy section—a few feet away from the Lego sets and baby dolls that have “eyes that really close.”

My child pushes the button on the bear, activating the motion. 

“What is that bear doing?” is the automatic question from an inquiring young mind.

“Dancing,” I say, and move on quickly to the next aisle. “Hey, look at the cool Matchbox race cars.”

But of course, this bear is not just dancing. It is “twerking.” Something we all know about only because strip club language is now a part of our everyday vernacular.

But this should cause us to lament—to feel a proper sorrow and shame. Our shame—no buck passing here. Since WalMart stocks twerking pandas, there must be a demand for twerking pandas.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).
