University of Chicago Promotes S&M and Pedophilia to Students -- in Name of Diversity

WARNING: Offensive descriptions of materials that should NOT be promoted to college students

CHICAGO, April 29, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- The University of Chicago provided nearly $3,200 to a "kink" student group for a traveling sadomasochistic "leather library" exhibit at the University that eroticized pedophilia, incest, and the most deviant pornographic perversions known to mankind.

Americans For Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH) sent a reporter Wednesday to the exhibit -- at the University's International House -- and came back with photos of the shockingly perverse offerings of the "Carter Johnson Leather Library," including:

  • The lesbian porn book "Macho Sluts," by Pat Califia, which includes a story about a mother who engages in sadistic, violent "sex play" with her own 13-year-old daughter;
  • Numerous books celebrating "Master-Slave" relationships;
  • "Gay" pornographic fiction books with pederastic themes, including one 1975 book, "Small Town Boy," about a 15-year-old boy who meets up with and is sodomized by an adult businessman visiting from New York City;
  • Photos and posters depicting the twisted violence and "consensual" degradation and cruelty of S&M -- including one of a woman caning her ball-and-chained male "slave."

Incredibly, the University of Chicago now officially sanctions a "student group" for sexual sadists: RACK (Risk-Aware Consensual Kink), through which the traveling "leather library" exhibit was funded. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, RACK "received nearly $3,200 in university grant money to bring the display to campus."

The grant for the "fetish" exhibit came from the "Uncommon Fund," a $40,000, student-run program that "offers a chance for students to pursue a wide range of ideas that can benefit the campus community and campus life," a U-Chicago spokesman told the Sun-Times.

The sadistic-sex exhibit was free and open to the public, and while AFTAH's reporter was present, a few young women and men -- who appeared to be around 20 -- came to view the depraved materials. Exhibit creator Vi Johnson exulted to the Sun-Times: "Being able to bring this display to a college campus, put a 300-year-old book [about deviant sex] in the hands of a 20-year-old and say, 'Here's your history' -- it's such a rush."

Just down the street from the International House is the University of Chicago Laboratory School (where Malia and Sasha Obama once attended). Around 3:00 PM Wednesday, as the "Leather Library" exhibit was winding down on its third and final day at the private university, dozens of elementary school children from the Lab School spilled onto the sidewalk.

"There could not have been a more jarring contrast between the innocence of children and the potential corruption that awaits them a mere decade later -- at the hands of academic elites brandishing a particularly toxic form of tolerance," said AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera. "I doubt many U-Chicago parents or alums are aware that U-Chicago is using its funds to expose young men and women to high-risk, vile behaviors -- all in the name of 'diversity.'"
