so today i learned that in the late 1800s-early 1900s, the navy became concerned about possible homosexual activity among their sailors
so they sent in decoys, whose job was to pretend to want to engage in homosexual activity in order to find gay sailors
except then the job of the decoy got popular
like, really popular
like… worryingly popular?
reports said that the decoys were performing their jobs with “much enthusiasm and zeal”
eventually the navy decided. to. just stop.
Hello! My name is Jolene or Jo and I am a Tumblr Addict. I enjoy things like reading, writing, theatre, biology, history, mythology, and astrology, plus a variety other things that I probably forgot to mention. I`m shy, and awkward (it kills me to be writing this much about myself), and I reblog a lot from comic books (huge fan even if it kills me), and I like meeting new people! So if you want to talk to me don`t be afraid to! (Which is hypocritical of me because I`m afraid to talk to people). Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog! Also for those who follow me thanks for that too! :)Ask me anything Submit
