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.

I am monogomous with my husband; my blood is safe.

I bet Ted Haggard's wife thought the same thing once.

Oh and how exactly do you tell gay blood from other blood. Instead of being red, is it a fabulous color of crimson?

I find it hard to believe that you've ever donated blood, since two of the questions they ask about are whether you've ever engaged in gay sex or have used iv drugs. But I guess in Alabama, or whatever shithole you are from, they ain't got time for no fancy readin' before they draw blood.

"It will not kill a Jew, to get blood from me after I ate a bacon cheeseburger."

And were I gay or lesbian, I might reply, "And it will not kill a bigot to get blood from me after I ate ...."

I grew up in Europe and that excludes me from being a blood donor in the USA - because I could have Mad Cow Disease!
However, I'm asked to sign up for as an organ donor! I will not sign up to donate my organs! how can my organs be save if my blood isn't?

See, that makes about as much sense as your "no gay blood" or no "black blood" or whatever!

Somebody gives (truly) from themself and you are belittleing the good deed by acting like an asshole! Yeah for Christians!
As I said before, create your own white christian, gender sorted blood bank! (hope you get enough donations)

9/19/2011 2:14:43 PM


Sure, I would take blood from any one of those people you mentioned... considering the fact that they test the shit out of the blood to ensure it contains no STD's or anything similar. If you don't want to take blood from them, then fine. That just leaves more for those of us who are not prejudiced shitstains.

Lesbians are allowed to give blood.

Straight (and bi) women who have ever dated bisexual men are not.

The disqualifying question is "have you ever had sexual contact with a male who has ever had sexual contact with another male?"

Gay male virgins are also allowed.

I still get pissed off every time I go in, and I have to work not to take it out on the staff, since they don't set policy.

What you really need to worry about is getting blood from an unemployed person. Then you'll lose your job.

SURGEON: "He's hemhorraging! Quick, he needs a blood transfusion, type O negative!"
NURSE: "But, doctor, the only O negative blood we have is from a gay man."
SURGEON: "Damn it! And his wrist bracelet says he's Christian. Well, inform his next of kin...."

Okay then, we'll give you blood from this pedophile whose wife died from AIDS.

9/20/2011 5:08:27 PM


Right now, homosexuals are effectively barred from donating, but even so, there is no such thing as "gay" blood, only blood from gay people; much the same as the fact that there are no "Christian" children, only children of Christian parents

9/20/2011 6:49:55 PM

I'd be fine, since all blood goes through rigorous testing. Even then, its usually "transfusion or die." I'll take any risk, really. Barring I'm not 80 and senile.

You know, blood from donors is actually screened every time. That's why they take the ampules for pathology. As a regular blood donor myself I'm finding it hard to believe that you would not make this observation. SOmething tells me you're a liar and you're spreading misinforamtion.

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

What might that reason be, then?

Oh, right, you have no fucking clue what that reason might be or even if it really exists, because the people who wrote the bible were stupid (or, perhaps, sneaky) enough not to include it.

9/21/2011 10:09:28 AM


You know they do tests to donnors before accepting their blood, right?

9/22/2011 11:16:17 AM


And how the hell would you find out?

god didn't say a damn thing about homosexuality; tribal simple-minded douchebags wrote down their opinions and claimed it was from god so they could get off by controlling people.

You sound an awful lot like people who say they wouldn't ever want nigger blood in them. IT'S THE SAME FUCKING BLOOD YOU FUCKING MORON; same color, composed of the same things. I promise, you won't turn gay from getting a gay person's blood - homosexuality does not work that way.

But also, by your logic, why shouldn't a Jew refuse your blood because you don't eat Kosher food? It makes about as much sense.

9/22/2011 7:15:27 PM


this person has informed the rr community that she is on prescription medication for a mental disorder.

i mean, it's self-evident, sure, but she's brought it up on the forums over there.

9/23/2011 12:45:14 PM


JUST FUCK YOU. Why do you have to be such an asshole.

9/23/2011 1:35:42 PM

I wonder if she thinks the blood will turn her gay?

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

But you'd be alive. Case closed.

You're a retard. Men who have sex with men, women who have sex with men who have sex with men, drug users, etc, are all restricted from donating blood due to the risks involved.

Before anyone argues that it's not fair, it's because HIV can only be identified effectively via HIV antibodies, which take around 30 days to show up. If the last time you did any of the things above was after a certain amount of time you may still be able to donate. It's not against homosexuality, it's a precaution to ensure HIV infected blood doesn't make it through screening.

"@ 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."

Ah, the old mad cow disease. I must confess that I had completely forgotten about that one. It does make more sense, I guess...

"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."

Nothing to do with "civilisation level" (if such a thing even exists), I simply thought that the US and Europe shared pretty much all their major diseases. As I said, I had completely forgotten about Creutzfeld-Jacob.

@Pilotess: after sleeping on the question, I think I twigged why they'd stil be happy to take your spare parts even if they don't want your blood.

If I understood what Gloria said correctly, there is currently no way to test blood for the Mad Cow prion. I suppose that the kind of tests that might detect it would be too invasive/painful/dangerous/expensive/complex to be practicaly included in the testing routine for blood donors; on the other hand, if they're harvesting your organs after your death, you won't really mind if they open your brainpan and cut a slice of your grey matter to check if it has started to go all Spongebob.

In the end, I guess it all boils down to risks/benefits and supply/demand: with blood, the supply is plenty enough and the potential damage that could be done by an infected regular donor high enough that going into better safe than sorry mode is reasonable. On the other hand, available compatible organs are very much rare, so you can't really rule out a donor just because he happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time: transplants are risky anyway, so the quasi-certainty of death without that new heart would outweight the (slim) possibility that the donor had Creutzfeldt–Jakob and that the tests missed it.

I needed a transfusion last March, and another in May. Neither time did I get all pissy about who it may have come from, it was just "Shoot the juice to me, Bruce." I 'd bet Acts would do the same in that circumstance. I'd borrow money to bet on it.

To all you blood donors; thank you from the bottom of my heart! Litterally.

10/9/2011 10:16:25 PM


I'm confused; does this guy think gay blood will turn him gay? Or is he one of the many Christian fucktards that thinks all gay guys have AIDS?

I am monogomous with my husband; my blood is safe.

If any of the sex you've had with your husband -- or any of the sex either of you may have had before you were married (remember, monogamy doesn't cure diseases that are already present!) -- has been unprotected, then you're a higher-risk donor than me. I'm gay, but I've always been strict about not having unprotected sex.

@ Adrian

My apologies for the assumption then. You probably have a point about similar rates of most things (particularly as I believe Malaria is the other main thing they're concerned about with overseas travel, and I'm prettu sure the rates of that are similarly low.)
