The Peter at IML
He didn’t let us down. It looks like Peter went to International Mr. Leather this year, but most of the pictures at his site are from 2006 — when he was undercover doing research at that time — so he maybe he had a harder time getting into events without being seen this time around. He even has more than one post on it – Sodom-by-the-Lake; Chicago’s Palmer House Hilton Hosts Perverse “International Mr. Leather” (“Will Christians emerge from their “closet” to do something to stem the tide of evil and sexual perversion in Chicago?”)
Pro-homosexuality activism is largely a big city phenomenon. The City of Chicago has the “queer” distinction of being a favorite city of sadomasochists, people who would have once been known, in saner times, as what they are: perverts. Proceeds from International Mr. Leather’s vendor registration went to a place called the Leather Archives Museum — a “museum” for sexual sadists, again, located in Chicago. I visited this “museum” last year and was stunned by its audacious chronicling of the most repulsive perversions (see main story), e.g., “fisting.” The sheer horror and weirdness of the place makes it difficult to describe to a normal audience.
Peter features all sorts of photos of the goings-on at IML from his research, including many fetishes that he fixates on the rest of the year — all consensual activities that may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but they certainly aren’t acts restricted to gay folks by any stretch of the imagination. Don’t worry — he makes sure to show only same-sex encounters whenever there are two people in the photo.
He finally acknowledges that there are heterosexuals participating in these matters, but wants to lay the term “watersports” at the doorstep of gays. Whatever.
Truth is stranger than fiction: this is the logo for “Water Boys” – a California-based group for “pig sex” deviants who find pleasure in urinating in and on in each other in group orgies like that which occurred at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel. Water Boys had a big booth at both IML 2006 and 2007. Of course, many “gay” men do not engage in this particular wicked activity, and some “straight” perverts do, but the fact that in the homosexual male world there is a slang term for it — “watersports” — is to be expected from a movement built on the promotion of unnatural and wrong homosexual behaviors.
The Peter has called for a campaign against the host hotel, the Palmer House Hilton, telling his readers to “politely express your dismay that Hilton would allow its good name to be associated with the sadistic sexual perversion-fest known as ‘International Mr. Leather’” and “ask him how they sterilize their rooms after the perverse IML orgies, and express your outrage that they would profit off this sadism spectacle through 2009.” Oh, god I cannot keep a straight face as I type this. He urges his readers to only book rooms at CleanHotels.com. Well, I hate to break it to him, but I’m sure most of those hotels have seen a lot of sexual activities go on under their roofs, even if the TVs don’t feature porn.
