Yesterday I donated blood for the first time when I noticed some interesting questions on the questionnaire. Most were understandable, I was asked if I'd had "sexual contact" with a prostitute, or with somebody who had HIV or AIDS, but one question pissed me off a bit. One of the questions asked if I was a male who ever had sexual contact with another male, "even once?" What's that about? I'm not one to keep up with everything, but this seems to be a big one to me and I'm surprised that I missed it. Gay men can't donate blood? (Or at least non-virings) This really pissed me off since it seemed to just pick on gay men. For those who donate blood as well, is the same thing going on? Is this law or just the individual blood bank's ruling?
