homophobia so awful it's almost funny

Apparently researchers in the U.S. Air Force, back in 1994, proposed funding a $7,500,000 project to make a "gay bomb." I kid you not. This potential chemical weapon, while not lethal, would merely turn the enemy gay, and make all those guys in the other uniform want to have sex with each other instead of fighting. This idea was eventually quashed, or so they say.

Also in the news this week, a paper written back in 1991 by the very man Bush has recently nominated to be Surgeon General of the United States, one James W. Holsinger. While he seems a little bit obsessed with the ins and outs, so to speak, of sex between men, he doesn't seem to have a problem with sex between women. While he was Chancellor of the University of Kentucky Medical Center in 2002, he vocally supported including a session on lesbian health issues in the fifth Women's Health in Kentucky conference. You've sure come a long way, baby.
