My friend. I knew that about you but I am glad you said so here so others can see that even straight good Christians like yourself see the silliness of such a ban.

The solution isn't a ban on donating. Simply test every donation.

HIV blood is NEVER used in blood transfusions, even if the patient is HIV positive. The only exceptions are 1. If no reg. blood is available and the HIV patient's life is in danger, and a HIV donor agrees to donate. 2. If the patient's condition deteriorates into full blown AIDS and there's a big shortage in blood, to help sustain the patient, they would allow it. I would have thought you would have known these things since.......
I do know. That's why you're wrong.

Oh and it isn't the HIV+ person that has to consent. It's the one getting the blood. And that only applies to consenting to blood from a gay man or lesbian. I know of no country right now that allows HIV+ blood to be used even if the receiver is HIV+, though Israel successfully did a transplant between two HIV+ people for a kidney. The ban will die just like the State Constitutional Amendments that ban SSM.

Yes I do know because I am HIV+. Just as I know the facts about being gay that you deny.

Oh and I appreciate your interest in me but as I told you before:

I'm NOT your type. I'm NOT inflatable!

Really? Hey fagg@t, I know you have AIDS. That's why I said you should know. You do have to have a donor to give, dumb fk, before you have the contaminated blood. You twist and talk in circles trying to make it seem like I don't know what I'm talking about. But you know different. Go take your meds and STFU.
It is illegal in every country I know of for an HIV+ person to donate blood under any circumstances.

Care to provide a link that says a person can legally consent to becoming HIV+ through a medical procedure?

You are confusing consent to accept blood from gay men with accepting HIV+ blood.

And still, a different set of laws, relationships, and social structure for everyone. Different is still not equal.
Your argument for "one type" is separate and different from treating same sex couple marriages equally under the laws currently in effect for opposite sex couples.
How does it feel to argue against someone's right to marry just because you don't approve? You are doing it rather poorly.

Polygamy shouldn't be legal because it is "different". So is same sex marriage different.

Marriage. There is no one right way. I support marriage equality. And you do not.

When relying on insults to make your case, it helps if they are not fulfilled by your own post.

You have yet to offer a rational rebuttal to the information presented, because you have none. 2 still equals 2, while other numbers do not. Even you have started to reluctantly admit the number restriction is different than the gender restriction, and requires a different set of laws if not social structure.

Same sex marriages continue to be recognized and treated equally under the laws currently in effect for opposite sex couples in more and more jurisdictions, because they are the same under the same laws, not something different.

You support changing the restriction on number for the entire society, which requires an entirely different legal and social structure. Different is still not equality.

It is you who has yet not offered a rational rebuttal. It is a simple concept really. I support marriage equality and you do not.

You say poly marriage shouldn't be allowed because it's "different than same sex marriage". That is not rational.

You do not support marriage equality. You support changing marriage and the structure of society for everyone.

The number restriction remains an entirely different set of laws social structure, while same sex couples are recognized equally under the laws currently in effect. It is irrational to suggest a different set of laws and social structure is equal. Your irrational claims to the contrary still don't change the fact that only 2 can be equal to 2.

I don't know if you know the infamous "Rose_NoHo but that's her schtick too. Polygamy should not be allowed because it's a "different issue", or sometimes she declares "Polygamy is a non issue." As if good peoples' marriages can be so easily dismissed as a "non issue".

And of course if someone says the same about sex marriage you would scream bloody murder. Classic hypocricy.

Your irrational claims still don't change the fact that two men or two women is not a man and a woman. And they don't change the fact that polygamy deserves the same respect as same sex marriage.

Legalize polygamy! Same sex marriage is a different issue. It's a non issue. It's different. Not yet equal says.

Woops I got that backwards. But it doesn't matter. It's dumb either way.

Name one same sex marriage case where the Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act of 1862 was introduced.

Lotsa luck with that.

It's fun to watch you try to justify your hypocrisy. Try harder though. I am not convinced at all that someone's polygamous marriage will hurt you.
You are correct. Someone's polygamous marriage will not hurt me because they don't exist in the USA.

No. I say: Frankie is the stupid one. You fail to read let alone comprehend what I write. I have no problem with the people who wish to marry. Can you grasp that, numbnuts? My problem is with the PROVEN damage to society that results from it.

If you cannot understand that distinction, what makes you think ANYBODY believes that you are a scientist?

OMFG! Spell clueless for me.

"such blood" may even have alternate strains of HIV and would COMPOUND the syndrome.
