The Red Cross hates my freedom.

I am no longer technically eligible to donate blood.

"Have you had sex with a man who has had sex with another man since 1977, even once?"

There's no box for "Have you had sex with a man who had protected sex with another man and subsequently tested negative for HIV and STDs?" Apparently all male-male sex is assumed to be high-risk, no matter what, and permanently dirties the blood.

Dammit Benny. You gave me dirty gay blood.


  1. Bruno - But what if you've had sex with someone who's had sex with a man who's had sex with another man?

    We are all gay by association.

    And therefore, we all have AIDS.

  2. Everyone has AIDS! I can still donate blood, though.

  3. I know this post is four years old but I just lie on that question, which infuriates me but hell, I know for sure that I'm clean and getting someone blood who needs it matters more to me than stupid bureaucracy rules that shouldn't matter.
