    Check with the Red Cross...for starters. Military service disqualified me from donating blood as well (O-neg...and an every 6 week contributor for most of my adult life until the first Gulf War, service in England, Anthrax vaccines, etc...).

    Looks like it is only for gay men, and not lesbians. But still, it's crap.

    I used to donate regularly and I have never been asked about my sexual preference. the only thing that comes close is one question where they ask if you have had sex with someone for money or had sex with someone who had sex for money.

    Unfortunately, I can no longer donate. apparently my blood now contains antibodies against HEP-B and it gives a false positive for HEP on the initial screening. All the blood collection agencies have told me it is not worth the extra expense to take my blood since it always has to be retested. Thanks Uncle Sam for all those vacinations you forced on me.

    Wow, I did not know this. It made sense in 1983, does it make sense now? I don't know, I don't know the statistics.


    If blue eyed asians were spreading mad cow disease through blood donations, I'd be for banning them from donating as well if it presented a danger to the blood supply.

    yep...and thats only PART of it!

    In truth my tolerance for mindless ideological morons has always been rather limited...and my tendency to point it out in rather mean and offensive ways is also a curse and character flaw that goes back quite a ways...

    Might have something to do with the percentages and tendencies of HIV/AIDS victims. As time and 'tolerance' grew you will notice they included other groups as well...intravenous drug users...etc...

    Lesbians as a group were never really in the high risk category. Gay's were and are. Thats simply a fact. Ignoring that fact in the name of political correctness is simply foolish.

    apparently my last HEP-B vaccine really took hold. I still have the anti-bodies floating around. been tested several times (because it freaked me out initially) and no signs of actual HEP-B, just the anti-bodies. I guess that is a good thing, I have a head start on fighting it off if I ever get exposed.
