She only felt disturbed because it depicted things she wish she could still get.

I don't think she is disturb by the porn but by the fact that the endangered species bone is use for art work openly :(

This makes endangered species protection law look like a joke :(

Ermmm, you do realise that these carvings were from over a century ago, right? A time when the whalers were as endangered as the whales.

Ms. Owen says her museum can’t guarantee that all of its scrimshaw is from genuine 19th-century whale; some pieces may have been crafted more recently, by unscrupulous artisans and fakers, and then made to appear “aged.”
I hope you read the last statement :)

I guess she's unable to explain the topic to her kids, that's why she started the jihad to have the pieces removed before her kids reach the 'critical age' :)
