Somebody brought this video to my attention.
It’s really quite astounding what people will come up with when they’re forced to think of any and all solutions they can. Especially when it’s non-lethal war material. Isn’t the idea of war to be lethal…otherwise it wouldn’t be war. I recall the scene in Doctor Strange love, “There is no fighting in the war room!” I guess we can never say that the military or our government doesn’t think out side of the box…or closet.
The news follows up with the usual suspects. Here’s the angry gay person, here’s the gay person who thinks the idea is silly. Here’s the response from the military avoiding the subject, probably because they know the idea is just as silly as we do! Let’s look at the note a little more closely. “One distasteful but completely non-lethal example would be strong aphrodisiacs, especially if the chemical also caused homosexual behavior.” First, just admire the absurdity of this statement. That would have to be one pretty strong aphrodisiac to cause homosexuality among religious fanatics that like to blow things up. Secondly the word distasteful seems to actually imply that the use of such a weapon or the idea of building such a weapon that could do this would be distasteful, not that the act of homosexuality is distasteful. So the gay people whose arguments they get don’t really have grounds for arguments.
Truly though, it is just absurd.
