Weapons of Gay Destruction

I have heard of some really crazy things in my life, but the Pentagon must have some people in the furthest reaches of sanity with this one. Taking one from the times of the 60’s, they really wanted to bring that old saying, “make love, not war” into play! In their quest to make non lethal weapons, the military actually considered building a so-called “Gay Bomb.” This stuff just writes itself!

A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.

Pentagon officials on Friday confirmed to CBS 5 that military leaders had considered, and then subsquently[sic] rejected, building the so-called “Gay Bomb.”

    With tears rolling down my cheeks.

    A bomb I could actually support. For all the stupidity involved, at least they were going to promote something other than death, dismemberment or other destruction.

    Which is surely why it got booted.

    Better idea: a straight bomb. Here’s how it would work: http://ajliebling.blogspot.com/

    Does this lend credence to the theory that the AIDS virus was deliberately released from a DOD lab as a way to fight both gay men and intervenous drug users?

  4. As a 63 year old gay person, I find the Pentagon’s “Gay Bomb” proposal demeaning and disgusting. The homophobic premiss is based solely on evangelic, right wing, sterotypes.
    A. The only thing that gays ever think
    about is sex and therefore if all enemy
    soldiers were turned gay they would
    solely be interested in making love not
    war.
    This is just total crap! If this were
    true gay teachers, lawyers, mechanics,
    electricians etc. would all be fired
    because their constant sexual urges would
    prevent them from doing thrir jobs.

    B. Again gays are sterotyped as being too
    feminine to do a “man’s job.” But,
    then again how can they ever really
    know because gay’s are prohibited from
    openingly serving due to the ill-
    conceived “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
    This myth is constantly perpetuated by
    people like Arnold Schwartzinegger” who
    refers to gays as “girly men.
    C. The medical community has proven, without
    any doubt that sexual orientation is not
    chosen. Sexual orientation is
    biologicaly determined. If it was truly
    a choice there would be no gays. Who
    would choose a sexual orientation knowing
    full well that it would bring them a
    lifetime of prejudice and hate?
    The “Gay Bomb” theory is so blantantly homo-
    phobic, that the ACLU should be involved.
    It would make as little sense as saying we should have dropped egg amd shrimp rolls on the Vietnamese. Perhaps they would have been to busy eating and then we would have war.

  5. Well said William, very well said!

  6. It makes you realize that if they constructed an “Idiot Bomb” and set it off there at the Pentagon, it would be the last bomb ever built or detonated.
