Do they really not take your blood if you are gay?
If all blood is screened, that doesn't make sense.

I've tried to donate blood, but they don't want mine.Too much time in the tropics, and treatment in third world hospitals.

I've just realised why my first repy is a bit stupid.
It's because of the three month period between an HIV infection and it showing up in a test. I guess it does make sense not to take blood from people who may be at a higher risk.

but still....
its still seems odd...

anyone know how 'the gays' feel about this? I reckon I'd be pretty pissed off. It's not a good idea for anyone to take my blood, christ knows whats in it, but I'd hate to be refused because I have red hair, or I listen to a bit of DnB now and then, or that I'm a sex-God...

you know?

that issue aside; please give blood if you are willing/able/allowed. thanks to speshal for recommending.
