Dropping gay bombs

Gotta drop a gay bomb

This conspiracy is historical fact.

The Gay bomb conspiracy involved a research project for a “Gay bomb”, to be conducted under the direction of the US Air Force in 1994. The project's objective was to explore the effectiveness of pheromones as a non-lethal chemical weapon.


The chemical research program for the “Gay bomb” was to determine the effects of female pheromones doused on male enemy troops, with the objective 'to make enemy soldiers sexually irresistible to one another'[1] with the goal of negatively impacting their effectiveness in combat.[2] Documentation for the plans were obtained under the US Freedom of Information by the Sunshine Project, a group which monitors research into chemical and biological weapons. The 1994 plans were for a six-year project that cost $7.5 million dollars—but according to BBC, 'they were never pursued.'[1]
