Re: FDA: Gay men still can't donate blood
Same here in Australia.
The question asked is not whether your are a gay man not...but whether you have had homosexual sex in the past 20 years or so. I would say that many men, who don't identify as gay, yet have had some sort of homosexual encounter in the past 20 years are donating blood though...
As the thread starter stated...you could lie...but I refuse to lie with regard to my sexual orientation. I have nothing to hide. As a result I do not give blood despite the fact that I would like to.
Of on a tangent...It is similar with adoption for gay couples. I can adopt as a single man, as long as I can show a stable environment and the means of financial support. However, I cannot apply to adopt a child with my partner...despite the fact that we are in a stable long term relationship, with a home and a double income. It makes no sense whatsoever.
