Quote# 83864

If I, or someone else, was given blood that a gay person donated I would be very, very, angry. Then I would sue, because that's all they would understand.

There is a reason God decreed gay sex to be a SIN.

Walker, if you are OK getting gay blood, fine. I'm just saying the general population needs to be given the choice, before someone puts gay blood in their body. Kosher/nonkosher is a dietary thing. It will not kill a Jew, to get blood from me after I ate a bacon cheeseburger. I am monogomous with my husband; my blood is safe.

I'm a blood donor. So is my husband. So are most of my family. Most of my family has gotten blood; SAFE blood that came from people who did not engage in high-risk behavior.

I'm curious, if someone reading this is fine with the idea of getting gay blood, what about blood from an IV drug user? One you know shared needles with other injectable drug users.

Would you take gay blood?
Blood from a heroin addict?
Blood from someone who sold their body for "money or drugs"?

Right now, none of them can donate. IMO, it needs to STAY that way.

What if you get blood from Marylin Manson? Or Ozzy Osbourne? Will you become the "Anti- Christ"?

Haha, if they were allowed to donate I would love to see a fundies face when someone told them they have Ozzy Osbourne's blood in them!!

lets put it another way. would you accept gay blood, blood from a heroin addict, blood from a prostitute, or would you rather die.

9/17/2011 11:54:56 PM


Can I have them screen for bigots. Given that there is a mind-body connection there's even a possibility that they tend to have more unhealthy blood.

9/18/2011 12:12:29 AM


But you JUST SAID that if someone else was given blood from a gay person, you'd be ANGRY, and now you're saying it's fine if this Walker guy gets it as long as he's okay with it? Are you insane?

Oh, wait, Rapture Ready, so yes.

lolwut? Why??

As for the fundie, "gay blood", that must be one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. And I love how this dumbass puts gay people and drug users on the same level! Idiot.

9/18/2011 2:46:54 AM


Fine. Don't accept transfusions. Problem solved, stop whining.

9/18/2011 4:50:52 AM


Gay blood? What the hell? How can you tell if blood is gay? Does it swish? Blood is screened and tested before it's released, so yes, I would take blood transfusion from someone who is gay. As for IV drug users, they aren't allowed to give blood in most places, and even if they slip by that, it's also tested before being released for use.

9/18/2011 6:39:34 AM

Let's see. You desparately need blood or you will die. BUT before you let them GIVE yo that blood, you want them to do a background check. I imagine that before thant check is done, you will die. Hmmm "Cause of death: bigotry."

9/18/2011 6:50:01 AM

Let me see, would you die in order not to receive blood from a gay person?. Remember that they make tests before letting them giving blood. Come on, if you believe the nonsense of Jehowa witness that have found a part of the Scripture that doesn't allow transfusion for some reason, ok. But face the consequences.

9/18/2011 7:36:02 AM

I wonder, if you sue them, so what?. There is no law that forbids blacks or homosexuals giving blood. If people sue you it's because there is a law you break, not because they want to "make you understand"

Reverend Jeremiah

Being monogamous with your husband has fuck all to do with your blood being safe or not..but, then again, apparently you dont know dick about blood, much less the concept of kosher/not kosher.

Typical American citizen..butt fucking stupid of just about everything.

@Reverend Jeremiah

Shut. Up. This person isn't American. In America we have a sense of equality and decency, not to mention basic understanding of how blood works.

These people aren't American, they're seditious trash, mucking up my country with their stupidity.

Mister Spak


When blood transfusion was perfected, racists refused to be contaminated by nigger blood. They required blood banks be all white to prevent this contamination.

They also believed niggers looooved to eat watermelon and fried chicken, thus the cartoon of the white house lawn turned into a watermelon farm.

Now that anti-black bigoty fails so hard even Glen Beck avoids it, they don't say these things any more. But it's still safe to say it about gays.

I would suggest you think your thoughts a little more carefully in the future.

Doubting Thomas

If I, or someone else, was given blood that a gay person donated I would be very, very, angry. Then I would sue

Let me get this straight... you'd sue the people who saved your life?

It will not kill a Jew, to get blood from me after I ate a bacon cheeseburger. I am monogomous with my husband; my blood is safe.

Except for the gobs of cholesterol. I'd much rather get blood from a gay man who had a salad for lunch.

The difference between gays and drug addicts:

Heroin users put heroin in their blood.

Homosexual men put something else somewhere else, and don't have much to do with blood anyway.

It seems odd that anyone could get the two confused.

Well, I assumed she was talking about suing the hospital. Although trying to sue the donors does give it that otherworldly kind of weirdness...


No, that's vampire blood.

"...God decreed gay sex to be a SIN."

Well, as soon as you prove God exists (or at least existed when that part of the Bible was written) and you prove that God actually wrote the Bible or caused people to write his words for him, then you might have a point. Until then you're just farting your opinion into the wind and claiming it has great authority.

"Would you take gay blood?
Blood from a heroin addict?
Blood from someone who sold their body for "money or drugs"?"

Yes. If I were in need of blood, I would take blood screened for diseases from anyone, though I'm in favor of YOUR turning down a tranfusion.

9/18/2011 2:47:55 PM


"I am monogomous with my husband;"

Good for you.

"my blood is safe."

Sorry, but this doesn't automatically follow: for all you know, your husband could enjoy getting gang-banged bareback by a few heroin-addicted pre-op transsexual prostitutes when he goes on a "business" trip :P

"Wasn't there an argument somewhat like this when blood transfusions first became available about how white people didn't want blood from black people?"

Indeed, as Midnight mentionned it in another quote, the US army used to segregate blood donations, and protesting against this cost Dr. Charles R. Drew his job.

@Arctic Knight:
"I am monogamous with my wife, yet the ARC won't take my blood because I spent too many years living in Europe. I want to give, but I'm not allowed to."

WTF!? I could understand requiring you to get tested for tropical diseases that may not be detected by the standard tests before allowing you to give blood if you had lived in, say, Africa or South-East Asia, but Europe, seriously...?
And even if you had lived in a tropical or third world country, why should you be prohibited from giving blood if you test clean...?

9/18/2011 6:41:11 PM


@ Adrian and Bronn
If you've been incertain parts of Europe for more than a certain ammount of time (varying by area,) you're considered to be at risk for variant Creutzfeld-Jacob Disease. Since there is no test for that, and there is some evidence it can be transmitted via transfusion, they're understandably hardcore about it.

And yes, Adrian, Europe. I hate to break it to you, but disease does not go out of its way to avoid parts of the world that you consider more civilised.

@ Head of the conspiracy

It's the needles that are the main issue, not the heroin. Gays and drug users get grouped together in these discussions because they're banned for the same reason: higher HIV risk. Heroin stays in the blood stream fairly briefly - a few days, max. HIV hangs around a little longer.

Sure, wrap blood donations in red tape. That's gonna help.

Yes, if you are being true to your religious ideals of invented fantasy deities that justify your bigotry and fortify the pretence that you can live forever as a ghost. No, if you're a realist with a vested interest in your fellow humans and have an unafraid acceptance of your own and others' mortality.

9/19/2011 2:02:53 AM


So you're monogamous with your husband. Is he monogamous with you too? I mean you Christian wingnuts do have a bit of a history of embarrassing revelations of a sexual nature. You could be developing a fine selection of sexually transmitted infections right now. Not to mention the possibility that wingnuttery itself might be transferrable via bodily fluids.

On balance, I think I'd have to sue if I got your blood forced upon me. It's my safety FFS!!!

9/19/2011 2:25:24 AM


I think there was an "all in the family" episode where Archie got blood from a female black nurse. He sounded a lot like this bitch.

It's good to know that satire from decades ago is still very true in some dark and shallow corners of the genepool.

9/19/2011 7:41:26 AM


Blood is tested, moron.

I am monogamous with my husband; my blood is safe
Sure about that? This begs the question is your husband monogamous?

9/19/2011 7:41:50 AM

Dr. Shrinker

Your faith seems to be lacking Acts. If your god is truly as just as your lot always says, he/she wouldn't expect you to suffer unjustly. If you get AIDS from a blood transfusion, just ask your god to cure it. If you became gay or a heroin addict from a transfusion, god can easily cure that too (at least, that is what your lot is always insisting).

Or is your god not up to the task?
