The good news is that the Pentagon wants men in the armed forces to have sex with each other. The bad news is that they want men on the enemy side to do it.
It sounds like a joke, but it is not. Under the Freedom of Information Act, a non-profit group studying biological weapons found out the Pentagon seriously entertained the idea of spraying enemy troops with a chemical that would make them sexually irresistible to each other.
As a citizen I am shocked that the armed forces could sink so low. As a gay man I am wondering if you can buy the stuff over-the-counter.
A military official tried to diffuse the international media attention by saying, that the proposal was rejected out of hand.
So squirting the enemy with Gay Spray was not quite the brilliant idea military strategists thought it would be. If they really wanted to gain a strategic advantage, they would crop-dust our own troops with it.
Of course that would never happen, not just because of institutional homophobia but because gay civilians would keep raiding the stockpiles.
The spray would, of course, ruin alcohol sales at gay bars. Why buy a hottie a drink when you could just give him a spritz?
