Item #: SCP-252

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-252 is to be stored in the armory under Level 4 security protocol. SCP-252 is to be cleaned and maintained as a Class HK volatile device, with regular examination to be performed weekly.

Description: SCP-252 appears to be a standard US military 50 lb aerial bomb, similar in make and model to those used in WWII-era bombers. On its side, the words “The Pink Scare” are stenciled in. Attempts to disassemble the bomb’s apparatus are impossible, and there are no means to disarm its payload indefinitely.

SCP-252 is activated with a remote switch, a small iron remote control with a simple knob labeled “on” and “off”. When the knob is turned to the “on” position, SCP-252 will activate within 5 seconds, releasing its payload. This payload has the effect of altering the minds of any personnel within its range of 3.5 km. All those affected by the blast will temporarily develop homosexual preferences, regardless of previous sexual orientation. The method in which it accomplishes this is unknown at the time, and all attempts to disassemble SCP-252 have lead to premature detonation.

Discovered in 19██, SCP-252 was found in an abandoned scientific facility near ██████, Virginia. Upon locating the device, the movement of the Agents assigned to its recovery caused the very unstable SCP-252 to detonate, partly due to its state of disrepair at the time. After a thorough examination, and more than a bit of confused embarrassment, they were released and SCP-252 was relocated to Site-██.

Addendum: While not inherently dangerous, SCP-252 has been subject to an overwhelming, if no cumbersome degree of security and scrutiny due to several unauthorized attempts to neutralize it. Exposure of the apparatus seems to create extensive emotional distress in some of the heterosexual and homosexual members of the staff. Mainly the ones who believe to be from one or the other level of the spectrum and end up proven wrong.

Note: This is the third time we’ve had a wave of reports from SCP-336 regarding sexually confused staff due to accidental detonation. It is informed to all personnel that any attempt to destroy SCP-252 without authorization will end up in detention and immediate termination of the involved. Please, learn how to deal with your issues in any other way - Dr. ██████

Addendum: To all of you (angry) male staff who thought it would be hilarious to move this into my quarters and detonate it, I'd like to suggest that you watch "The Shawshank Redemption" for clues as to why it didn't take. Heck, do it anyway, it'll give you something to do while you wait to be reassigned to Keter duty.
- Dr. Clef.

Note: Despite many requests, no, we will not expose SCP-230 to SCP-252. I don't care how funny "The Gayest Gay Man Alive" sounds. - Dr. ██████
