The Military and the Gay Bomb

Right on the heels of New Fest, CBS breaks the news of Bush's deadliest weapon yet: the Gay Bomb.

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... "The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soldiers to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistibly attractive to one another"

Lets break down the idiocy of this idea. First, it assumes that homosexuality is a choice, not genetic. Anyone can be forced to be gay (or forced to not be, which is probably what the Bush administration really wants). Second, it assumes that homosexuals are worse fighters than heterosexuals.
