Gawd -- our military leaders are/were just as stupid as our civilian leaders -- a "Gay Bomb?" What planet are these guys from?


The US military investigated building a "gay bomb", which would make enemy soldiers "sexually irresistible" to each other, government papers say...

The US defense department considered various non-lethal chemicals meant to disrupt enemy discipline and morale.

The 1994 plans were for a six-year project costing $7.5m, but they were never pursued...

The plan for a so-called "love bomb" envisaged an aphrodisiac chemical that would provoke widespread homosexual behaviour among troops, causing what the military called a "distasteful but completely non-lethal" blow to morale.

First of all, if these morons knew their military history, they'd know that there were pre-WWI German homosexual companies, and they were recognized as the most aggressive, unrelenting, harsh and violent military units in the Army. Enemy units were terrified of them. *

I finally understood why the military is so dead set against having acknowledged gay men and women in their uniforms. Has nothing to do with harming morale -- what they fear is that with openly gay soldiers around, the hetero soldiers will come to accept them as just other guys who do different stuff when on leave.

The fear is that the presence of gay soldiers WON'T harm morale at all.

*Klaus Theweleit discusses this in his landmark book Male Fantasies (University of Minnesota Press, 1987)
