Threat of youth suicide drives radical, body-disfiguring “sex reassignment” surgeries on minor children–should this be legal?
Defying Nature: Emily Pascal as a teenage girl, before undergoing her transgender “sex reassignment” surgeries to appear like the male she thinks she is. Paschal, 17, now identifies as “Emmet” (see video below) after having her healthy breasts surgically removed. Both Pascal’s parents and the medical professionals at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago cite her potential suicide as a key reason for pursuing the body-disfiguring operations as a minor.
“We don’t offer anything that would have any long-lasting negative or irreversible effect unless this is truly a kid who’s older, who can make a wise decision, whose family is supportive.”— Dr. Scott Leibowitz, child and adolescent psychiatrist with Lurie Children’s Hospital’s Gender and Sex Development program
Folks, I am stunned at what passes for science and medical care these days. Emily Paschal, a 17-year-old girl from Gurnee, Illinois featured in these WYCC (PBS-Chicago) video segments, had her healthy adolescent breasts surgically removed as part of her “transitioning” process to become her male persona, “Emmet.” Her parents allowed the radical surgery in the name of helping their daughter become like the transgender “male” she thinks she is. They were assisted by Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, in a program led by an open homosexual, Dr. Robert Garofalo, who heads up the hospital’s “Gender and Sex Development Program.”
Last month I was interviewed by WYCC for this “In the Loop” segment, “Raising a Transgender Teen,” without knowing the specifics of the Emily-“Emmet” Pascal story. WYCC is the lesser known of two PBS TV stations in Chicago, and this program aired September 24, 2015. WYCC used only a tiny portion of my interview, which is a shame because the reporter who interviewed me–not “In the Loop” host Barbara Pinto, who narrates the piece–was very fair and asked no “gotcha” questions. Note:I am identified here with “Center For Morality,” which will be a project of Americans For Truth as we transition to our new home in the Washington, D.C. area.
How tragic it is that the threat of suicide drives this entire process whereby panic-stricken parents–working with doctors who double as de facto LGBTQ activists–allow their child’s confused feelings to guide and rationalize the pursuit of permanent body-disfiguring operations. Speaking of rationalizations: what would feminists say about Emily’s (“Emmet’s’) father Dirk Paschal recalling her leadership skills as a girl in the neighborhood as evidence that she was really a “boy.” Can’t girls be leaders?
The bottom line here is that doctors have become activists and pop-culture philosophers in pushing these extreme experimental “solutions” on vulnerable youth and their vulnerable parents–even though, as Dr. Garofalo admits (see 3:18 mark), the doctors are far from having all the answers. Most importantly, as he acknowledges, some kids overcome their sense of “gender nonconformity”–so why rush the operations and puberty-blocking drug “treatments”? And will we all one day as taxpaying Americans be subsidizing these horrific procedures through Obama-care? I question whether these radical “transgender” surgeries should even be legal for minors. More coming on this. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

Joyce Kilmer Elementary School (right) is located on Greenview Ave., just three blocks from the deviance-honoring “museum,” Leather Archives (left), which sits at 6418 N. Greenview Ave., near Devon Ave., in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood. Two other public schools are also within walking distance of the mainly homosexual-oriented sadomasochistic perversion “museum”–which celebrates “fisting’ and other depraved homosexual acts, including porn that eroticizes adult-child sadistic sex. See AFTAH PDF Flier about the despicable “museum” HERE.
The following statements were issued by Illinois pro-family leaders at the Americans For Truth press event held May 22, 2015 directly in front of the Leather Archives & Museumat 6418 N. Greenview Ave., down the street from Joyce Kilmer Elementary School, in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago. Links to related stories on the LA&M S&M “Perversion Musuem” are at bottom:
“We were shocked to hear that there is a museum in a Chicago neighborhood, Leather Archives & Museum, dedicated to celebrating obscene and offensive sexual practices. Does tolerance have any limits? Are families supposed to welcome a museum dedicated to perversion in their neighborhood? Can parents protect the innocence of their children from exposure to behaviors that should not even be practiced or celebrated in private? The Leather Archives & Museum is located in a neighborhood of families. Children walk to the Joyce Kilmer Elementary School and the Roger C. Sullivan High School within blocks of the ‘Museum.’
“This weekend, the annual International Mr. Leather convention will take place in Chicago and it is anticipated that thousands of homosexuals will arrive in our city to ‘celebrate’ this event. We call upon the Mayor of Chicago and the people of Chicago to stand against the degradation of our communities and to uphold standards of decency to protect families and children.”
Nick Costello, Board Member, Catholic Citizens of Illinois:
“The ‘cultural’ underpinning the Leather Archives & Museum reflects the general disintegration of our sexual sanity as a nation. Of course, proponents of this “leather” deviance (rooted in sadomasochism) will present it with a smile as harmless sexual expression, while hiding the harmful effects spiritually, psychologically, and physically on those who practice it. This museum should be nowhere near Joyce Kilmer Elementary School and area parents must be put on notice. If the proprietors do not have the decency to close this ‘museum’ or relocate to an area unfrequented by children, then area parents have every right and duty to demand it. May God’s Holy Spirit lead us to a just and peaceful resolution to this pitiful situation!”
AFTAH Exclusive: Perversion “museum” — part of Chicago’s “gay community” — sits near three schools and a day-care center; houses BDSM works eroticizing adult sadistic sex with minors
WARNING: Some stories about the homosexual movement are so grotesquely perverse that they are difficult to report. This article by necessity describes some deeply disturbing sexual “fetishes” involving homosexual adult sadistic sex with children and teenagers–and vile, unnatural acts like “fisting” practiced for decades by by sadomasochistic homosexual “leathermen.” One book cover below contains an obscenity, another a highly offensive image. Keep in mind that the “Leather Archives & Museum” in Chicago that houses and celebrates these depraved works is located in the middle of a residential neighborhood within a short distance of three public schools and a day-care center.
“[S]landerers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil….” (Romans 1:30, NIV)
EVIL IN THEIR MIDST: Young children evidently attending a nearby day-care center file by the Chicago “Leather Archives & Museum” (see “LA&M” building in the center of the photo). [Take Action: view and distribute the AFTAH flier alerting the local Rogers Park neighborhood to this deviant institution HERE.] The BDSM “museum”–which is listed in the official Chicago “Visitors Guide”–houses some of the most vile sadomasochistic material imaginable–including pornography centered around adult-child sadistic sex. Other works glorify vile S&M perversions such as “fisting” and “watersports.” One “gay sex” book housed in the Leather Archives gives advice from NAMBLA to adult male “boy lovers” on how to avoid entrapment by police (see graphic in story below). The “museum” also caters to heterosexual BDSM enthusiasts, but it is a product of the “gay” sexual revolution, which has deep roots in the Windy City. We have blocked the faces of the children in this AFTAH photo; click to enlarge.

“The wicked strut about on every side when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” (Psalm 12:8; NASB)
If you need convincing that the homosexual (LGBTQ) movement is about immoral, unnatural behaviors rather than innate “identities” and “civil rights,” keep reading this article.
Chicago’s Leather Archives & Museum–a de facto “museum” of mostly homosexual sadomasochistic perversions–contains numerous works that eroticize adult sex with underage children–including man-boy sodomies and parent-child incest, AFTAH has learned. One book even offers advice from NAMBLA, the notorious North American Man/Boy Love Association, for adult “gay” men on how not to get entrapped by police in their “boy-love” pursuits.
The “museum” sits in the middle of a residential neighborhood in the heavily homosexual north side Chicago neighborhood of Rogers Park–within a half mile of three public schools (two elementary schools and a high school), as Americans For Truth previously reported. [See AFTAH’s PDF flier, which we distributed last week alerting residents to this perverse establishment.] There is also a day-care center nearby and young children evidently in its care are walked by the Leather “Museum” as part of their daily activities (see photo above).
Sadism, Incest & Pedophilia on display: The “Leather Archives” has prominently displayed the lesbian S&M book “Macho Sluts,” which includes a fictional short story about a 40-something mother who sadistically sex-tortures and beats her own young daughter, who doubles as a her slave “lover.”
The homosexual “leather” world is so hellishly twisted and perverse that it is difficult to research and describe it without corrupting minds and souls. I venture to say that the uber-deviant fetish depravities honored and carefully documented by this “museum”–celebrating “fisting,” “watersports,” body-punishing “sex play,” masters-and-slaves, etc.–are simply inconceivable to the average human being. However, as depraved as BDSM (mostly homosexuals “Bondage & Discipline, Dominance & Submission, Sadism & Masochism) acts between consenting adults are, their wickedness and horror are magnified exponentially when involving children. In this case, that includes fictionalized pornographic fantasies glorifying adult sexual domination of minors, as in “Macho Sluts” –a work this writer saw on display when I toured the “museum” several years ago. The younger the child, the greater the evil.
Because AFTAH has been tracking the homosexual movement with its “leather” subculture for many years, we had some knowledge about the depraved and disturbing works possessed and made available by this “museum.” The mostly “gay” BDSM “erotica” opens a window into the history of modern homosexuality and its overlap with pedophilia and ephebophilia (adults who pursue sex with adolescents)–as well as other extreme behaviors once dubbed, in saner times, as anti-social and deviant. Ironically, the “leather” archivists and other homosexual historians have helped preserve and document this creepy, predatory reality of “gay history”–and LGBT perversions in general–for the wider public.
“Chicken” and chicken hawks
So pervasive is adult homosexual male lust for teenage boys that–through “gay liberation”–it earned its own slang category: “chicken” is “gay” slang for highly desired teen boys and “chick hawks” their adult sexual pursuers. (Boy Scouts of America: beware.) AFTAH will post future articles on the sickening and outrageous “gay” phenomenon that dehumanizes boys as “chicken” to be sexually devoured.
The following are brief descriptions of a sampling of selections from the Leather Archives & Museum; the items are available for perusal to patrons of the museum’s library. I apologize in advance for describing such awful deviance but it is our role to document and shed light on behaviors that are not only tolerated but honored, as it were, in the larger homosexual “community.” More will follow in future pieces:
Sadistic Perversion ‘Museum’ and its Innocent Neighbors: The “Leather Archives & Museum” (LA&M) is a essentially a perversion “museum”–celebrating and chronicling some of the most extreme and depraved (and dangerous) sexual fetishes ever invented by mankind. That includes hard-core (consensual) sadistic brutality, “master-slave” degradation–and even the eroticization of incest and adult sex with children. Part of Chicago’s “LGBT community,” LA&M is located at 6418 N. Greenview Avenue in the city’s Rogers Park neighborhood–just three blocks away from Joyce Kilmer Elementary School (6700 N. Greenview). Little children walk by the LA&M building every day to attend a day-care facility on nearby Devon Ave. There are two other public schools located within a half mile of the perversion museum–Hayt Elementary School and Sullivan High School.

Click HERE or the the link below to view the Americans For Truth flier that was distributed in Chicago’s Rogers Park neighborhood May 22, 2015–exposing a homosexual “perversion museum” (AFTAH’s description) known as the Leather Archives and Museum, located at 6418 Greenview Avenue, near Devon on the city’s north side. The “Leather Archives” chronicles the history of sadomasochism and is intricately connected to Chicago’s annual “International Mr. Leather” BDSM (Bondage& Discipline, Dominanc & Submission, Sadism & Masochism) celebration drawing thousands of mostly homosexual “leathermen” to the Windy City.
TOO CLOSE: Sullivan High School is located a block away from the “Leather Archives” perversion “museum.” The Archives contains at least one booklet that describes a teenage boy sodomized and “fisted” by an older man as a “chicken” — a “gay” slang term for adolescent boys pursued for sex by adult male “chickenhawks.”

Jack Roeser, a phenomenally successful entrepreneur, leading Illinois conservative philanthropist and a faithful AFTAH and pro-family benefactor, passed away June 13 at the age of 90.
I got to know Jack long after he had achieved his business success. I remember a decade ago when he gave me a tour of Otto Engineering–which he started humbly in his basement in 1961 in Park Ridge, Illinois (childhood home of Hillary Rodham Clinton)–and which makes specialty electronic and communications products, including control switches for American fighter jets. Though by this point Jack was retired from day-to-day operations at Otto, he was hardly detached as he proudly explained the history of Otto, including products he invented that were still key to the company’s success.
It was Jack’s ingenuity and determination that builtOtto. A friend, relaying a conversation with Jack, told how he was awarded a coveted supplier contract by simply out-hustling much larger, competing corporations and by demonstrating Otto’s ability to rapidly turn around his innovative switch design. Jack was truly a classic American success story–a living testimony of what one person can accomplish in a free society that rewards hard work and creativity. [See this Breitbart tribute to Jack.]
A little-known legacy of Jack’s is how Otto’s continued growth and success dramatically transformed the small town of Carpentersville, Illinois, where it is based. Otto, now run by Jack’s son, Tom, employs around 600 people in its beautifully-restored factory complex on Main Street along the Fox River. In 2008, Tom and Jack launched a remarkable home renovation project, Homes by Otto, that has rejuvenated Carpentersville, one gutted-and-rebuilt house at a time. It is a model for private industry and charity doing efficiently what governments the world over have failed to do despite their profligate spending of taxpayer dollars (think HUD projects). [See this FOX News interview with Tom Roeser.]
So Jack’s legacy of productive and compassionate conservatism lives on through his son. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree after all.
You can watch a short video celebrating Jack’s fascinating life produced before his death below.
Fighting the Left
Jack was an engineering genius with more than 50 patents, but he was no fan of the Left’s social engineering. He possessed the wisdom and common sense of a more grounded and God-fearing generation that instinctively knows the difference between right and wrong. Scoffing at the idea of legal “same-sex marriage,” he didn’t need to be convinced of the immorality of homosexuality–and the folly of promoting it through the government as a “civil right.”
WARNING: contains photo with male rear nudity; graphic acts described
Manhood Crisis: The leftist “Right Wing Watch”–a project of People For the American Way–did not like AFTAH president Peter LaBarbera’s criticism of “leather” male homosexuality as “faux masculity.” LaBarbera’s comments were focused on pseudo-macho “leathermen,” but all of male homosexuality revolves around a crisis of manhood. See RWW’s short video below and also the longer interview with David Ortiz from which it was excerpted.
By Peter LaBarbera
Folks, one of many “elephants in the room” of politically incorrect topics that most people dare not discuss in debating homosexuality is that–for self-described “gay” men–homosexuality is a masculinity crisis. The bottom line, confirmed tragically by nature and the design of our bodies, is that men were never intended by their Creator to have “sex” with other men–and certainly not with adolescent boys, a common practice of male homosexuality throughout history. The converse is also true: lesbianism is a femininity crisis, although there are some key differences between male and female homosexualities.
When we as common-sense, God-respecting conservatives bring out basic points like this, it enrages our “progressive” foes. How dare we publicly violate the tenets of their core, deviant orthodoxy–that LGBT practice and ideology are not to be questioned, at least by outsiders. Thus it was to be expected that Right Wing Watch–a mischievous arm of People For the American Way (PFAW), the leftist outfit founded by Norman Lear–would not like my recent interview with YouTube host David Ortiz.
Is this real “masculinity”?Contestants at the annual “International Mr. Leather” contest in Chicago Labor Day weekend 2014 line up with rear ends bared for the judges. The sadomasochistic male “leather” movement features pseudo-“macho” homosexuals who engage in rough sex, including, for some, heinous perversions such as “fisting” and “pig sex” orgies. Certainly, despite their play-acting at toughness, this is the ultimate perversion of true, godly masculinity. Men were never intended by their Creator to have “sex” with other men. In fact, the Bible says such sins are “detestable” in God’s sight. Photo: IML website.
Below is the short excerpt of my June 2 Skype interview with Ortiz, a portion of which was posted by Right Wing Watch, followed by the actual interview divided into three parts. Ortiz started the discussion by declaring, “You cannot be a masculine nation and support homosexuality, in my opinion.” From there I brought up the pitiable homosexual “leathermen,” with their “overkill” attempt at being “macho men”–even as they engage in the most degrading (and unmanly) sexual perversions known to the human race–not the least of which is male-to-male anal sodomy.
I brought up with David Ortiz the uber-debauched “International Mr. Leather” (IML) spectacle held every Memorial Day weekend in Chicago, and hosted by a major hotel–this year the Marriott Hotel on Magnificent Mile. Once again, purveyors of leather-sex hawked their deviant wares and twisted pornography at IML, as the nights were filled with homosexual orgies so vile that it is difficult for the Average Joe to imagine such evil. (Then the poor hotel staff have to disinfect the rooms afterward.)
What is fascinating about left-wing “tolerance/diversity” ideology is that it invariably leads to the acceptance and lack of questioning of even the most extreme–and obviously dysfunctional–subcultures of whatever “protected category” is in question, in this case, the LGBTQ movement. As AFTAH has shown and will continue to show, there is nothing more bizarre, and wrong, than the homosexual BDSM (bondage & discipline, dominance & submission, sadism & masochism) world, which is now drawing plenty of “kinky” heterosexuals as well.
Dave Smith of Ilinois Family Institute led the grassroots campaign to stop a homosexual “marriage” bill in Illinois. The bill was stalled despite Democrats possessing super-majority control of both House and Senate.
This is Part One of our interview with David Smith [click HERE to listen], Executive Director of Illinois Family Institute, which led the grassroots, pro-family coaltion effort to stall a homosexual “marriage” bill, SB 10, in Illinois. (Proponents of the bill, lacking the votes, did not call it for a vote by May 31, the last day of the legislative session. However, SB 10, which passed the Senate, remains alive to be called when legislators are back in session, through the lame-duck session in January 2015.) This interview was recorded June 6, 2012. Smith tells AFTAH President Peter LaBarbera and co-host John Kirkwood that the key to victory was the diverse grassroots opposition to the bill, especially the strong opposition from Black and Latino Christians. He describes how half the Black legislators in Springfield (all Democrats) ultimately declined to back the homosexual “marriage” bill, and calls its failure to pass in an Illinois General Assembly with Democratic super-majorities in both House and Senate a “miracle.” Smith also notes the well-funded lobby campaign on behalf of the same-sex “marriage” bill — including dozens of paid lobbyists — which far surpassed (monetarily speaking) that of pro-family advocates for natural, man-woman marriage. He said that the ability of grassroots citizens to stop SB 10 “marriage” in deep-blue, Democratic-dominated Illinois shows that “gay” activists and pundits are wrong in asserting that the national triumph of homosexuality-based “marriage” is “inevitable.”
