Go on, give blood you wussies! Only 4% of all eligible donors give blood.

Very nice. I can't give blood. I donate Plasma. Then I use the $50 a week to save for scooter stuff.

That was blood shooting out of my arm. That's what 35 minutes a day of cardio does for you.
I'll be in San Diego this weekend. Looks like I'll miss the motorcycle show in Long Beach. Darn.

No matter how much you might want to give blood, they will decline your donation if you tell them you're a non-celibate gay man. There continues to be a fucked up presumption that all gay men are at risk for AIDS unless they are celibate. No unlike the Catholic church.

They will take blood from a street person, and even pay them for it. They will take blood from a woman who has had three partners in the last month, regardless of whether or not she was protected. They will take blood from people with seriously fucked up health. They will take blood from the mentally ill. But if you're a non-celibate gay man, they don't want it. It's too much of a "risk".

Do the world a favor and dicuss this with your blood bank next time you're there. Every healthy person should be allowed to donate blood.

I hear ya bzzzzz. it is ridiculous. I can no longer give blood, because I spent over 6 months in the UK eating potentially tainted beef. But saying that homosexuals cannot give blood is even worse. It is truly shameful.

Did I mention I had one too many drinks that morning before giving blood? Something about my girlfriend leaving me for some other guy, or something like that. Nothing like losing blood to calm the nerves.
