This is the lounge in International House at the University of Chicago. I used to live at International House in 1944. Things have gone downhill.   Below  is a picture of the kinky “leather library” where, in the interest of “diversity” perversity is promoted.

University of Chicago Promotes Sadomasochism and Pedophilia to Students — in the Name of Diversity

CHICAGO–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 yesterday 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” male 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.

In my college days, way back when Robert Hutchins and Mortimer Adler held sway at the U of C, they would never have spent good money to promote such sick behavior. Nowadays this kind of porn is common not only in colleges but in grade school. The oral sex taking place on school buses is just the beginning of a nation gone haywire.

Meanwhile, on another campus, Notre Dame, a “catholic” university named after Our Lady, voted down a resolution a resolution failed that would affirm the University’s commitment to the dignity of the human person and the sanctity of human life.  According to the minutes of that meeting, eight senators were in favor of the resolution and 22 were against it.

Diversity has come to mean that anything goes, that a university has no truth to teach.  Why bother to go there?  They echo Pontius Pilate’s “What is truth?” and wash their hands of the consequences of teaching nonsense.
