I don't celebrate American

I don't celebrate American holidays.  I'm not going to start to either, but it's always nice to donate and I'll give to the RRS when I'm not broke... poor, starving student syndrom.

I don't give blood.  No one will take it, but they all profess to want it badly.  Bad policies get in the way of me helping people.

Children?

I give of myself regularly...

$$$

  That's the first thing I did when I got home from work, DONATE.  I can only give blood on Wednesday here, small clinic, so small that it sometimes referred to as a band-aid station.  But I have given blood as an Atheist.  The MLT doesn't even question that anymore, she is used to it.

you know whats gonna happen to your kids they will grow up around a good person and they will be the same

depending on condition anyone couldn't give blood like oh say someone with hiv

as for an american holiday i could understand if you don't live in the usa celebrating the 4rth would be like me celebrating canada day even if you do live in the usa it is still your choice not to set off fireworks etc etc but i really do like to celebrate my fave part of the constitution, the bill of rights

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

right there first phrase first amendment giving me the freedom to say i want no religion

I believe he's gay - they

I believe he's gay - they won't take blood from a gay man. There's all kinds of other reasons/conditions they won't too - I can't because of taking insulin.

gay?

they won't take blood from gay ppl?

that would be like saying i won't take blood from a black person and put it into a white person.  You won't turn black from being exposed to black american blood; same for the homosexual american

i don't understand what logic that rule follows

if i give blood to a black person they won't like indian tacos and deer cube steak (unless they already do) and they most definatly won't turn white/red mix (white inuit mix here)

hmm insulin does make the sense tho would'nt want sombody to drop bloodsuger on the op table like a rock

Their reasoning is that a

Their reasoning is that a gay man is more likely to have AIDS. Thogh it's absurd that they won't take it from a gay man who has been in a monogamous relationship for 10 years - but some slut that sleeps with every man who comes down the pike - or a guy who sleeps with a different woman every weekend is fine. If they really want to be safe they should only take blood from lesbians or celibates.

Receivers have higher rates

Receivers have higher rates of infection. It sucks, but it's backed by research. EVEN SO, we should be testing ALL incoming blood for infectious agents anyway. Relying on discriminatory measures isn't just ethically hypocritical, when combined with mere visual and questionnaire screening it's damn stupid. Like Dr. House says, "everybody lies."

That's sweet, but I'm not going to Virginia to give my blood... and I'm quirking an eyebrow -Virginia!?.  Matt is right, almost everywhere gay blood is denied and it is based soley on discriminatory measures despite that all blood is screened for infectious disease.  Read that again.  All blood is screened for infectious disease.  My blood is in high demand (O+), but CBS won't have it.  Bah.  I could rant on and on about CBS (not the news channel) and how stupid it is... but to no end.  Oh well.
