How I feel about it all: irritatedirritated

From patchfire:

FDA wants sperm banks to bar donors who've had gay sex.

Shouldn't EVERYONE who wants to donate sperm be tested for AIDS and that's that? And what about the fact that worldwide, most people with AIDS are heterosexual? *fumes*


I'm lying just to keep you here...

Most likely, dear. We just have to figure out how to get you a bed. :)

What? They're worried someone might get impregnated with "gay" sperm?

Our blood donation system out here is like that, too- if you've had gay sex (and you're male), used drugs intravenously, had sex with an intravenous drug-user, or had sex with a prostitute in the last four years or something, you're not allowed to donate blood.

It pisses me off- my partner used to donate blood regularly, but he stopped when he breached one of those restrictions- and never started again. I just think: if they need donors so badly, why not get them tested and go with it from there? (The same could be said for sperm donors, too..)

I just don't get why HIV/AIDS/Hepatitis/etc is something that's seen to only affect a particular demographic of the community. Apaprently the highest increase in people getting HIV/AIDS is amongst heterosexual women- the group who tend not to think they're at risk. :/
