According to this report from the local CBS affiliate in San Francisco, an Air Force lab in Ohio proposed in 1994 that the Defense Department develop a “Gay Bomb,” a hormonal weapon intended to ”turn” all enemy soldiers into homosexuals who would be “more interested in sex than in fighting.” The proposal failed.
Geoff Kors of Equality California had this reaction to news of the proposed “Gay Bomb:”
Throughout history we have had so many brave men and women who are gay and lesbian serving the military with distinction, so, it’s just offensive that they think by turning people gay that the other military would be incapable of doing their job. And its absurd because there’s so much medical data that shows that sexual orientation is immutable and cannot be changed.
