All people should be screened for recent high risk behavior, as this is where the risk of disease transmission lies. Any person can transmit any transmittable disease if they are infected. Sexual orientation is irrelevant. Testing can now identify any infections that might get through the risk screening.

Continuing a policy that no longer has any scientific justification is not about protecting the blood supply. The only remaining purpose is to indulge and perpetuate irrational prejudice.

Not surprising that the fake war "hero" Hanoi John Kerry the Loser would seek vengeance on the American people by allowing the blood supply to be poisoned by queers, all for choosing to re-elect Bush. Losing to Bush makes hate-America leftists go mental. Look what happened to Algore, the wannabe rapist and crazed sex-poodle.

Not to interrupt your racists, sexist, bigoted remark but you do know that Rick Perry worked for Al Gore's election while served as Al Gore's campaign chairman in the state of Texas back in 1988...

What's that got to do with fake war "hero" Hanoi John Kerry trying to pass laws allowing queers to poison our nation's blood supply?
As for sexist, Algore tried to rape a masseuse he called to his hotel room. The only surprise is that he would chose a female masseuse instead of a masseur.
As long as we're going way off topic, as for racist, Algore's dad, Sen. Algore Sr (Dem.-TN) fought tooth-and-nail the passage of the Civil Rights and voting rights acts for blacks in 1964-5.

Lots of fake war heroes... at least Kerry made it to Vietnam.

George Bush never made it out of the US and had problems finding it to his physical with a clean urine supply.

And of course that is without listing the long list of Republican chicken hawks and draft dodgers like your hero Rush Limbaugh.

PS: Kerry service to this country had nothing to do with this topic, perhaps you run to Topix and volunteer to be the resident bigot moderator...

Yeah, Hanoi John made to Vietnam and apparently Cambodia where he fought for the Communist cause while in American uniform.
As a lifelong traitor, it's not surprising that all these years later he's trying to inflict damage upon the United States and the American people by talking about how queers should have the right to poison the nation's blood supply.

Your ignorance is shocking. But there is a cure. It's called education. Failing that, you may wish to consider suicide. In your case, it would be easier than learning and would also be the most beneficial to everyone else. You really should consider it.

OK guys we need to bring this back to the topic at hand.

My opinion is that the "one year" rule is still being homophobic. HIV is not a Gay disease. All HIV negative individuals should be able to give blood. The blood is tested for HIV everytime.

Suicide is for queers and it provides at the very least Schadenfreude, if not much amusement at the prospect of there being less child-molesters/Obama-voters.
In the '80s, the queers/liberals lied about AIDS becoming a crisis and epidemic among straights so that normal people might be frightened into caring about stupid queers; it failed and the lies were exposed over time. AIDS is pretty much just all about queers. Now they're trying to poison the blood supply by allowing diseased queers to put everyone at risk, especially hemophiliacs, for diseases queers contract by the poor choices of their deviant lifestyle.
Why is it that queers hate hemophiliacs so much? Are you trying to exterminate them?

Most people know that there's a window of time between exposure and communicability and the limits of ability to detect.
Queers are trying to poison the blood supply, pure and simple. All so that everyone who's vulnerable and in need of blood products will be at the same risk of catching the diseases queers catch by choice because of their irresponsible stupidity in pursuing as many anonymous and promiscuous sex partners as possible.
The queers/liberals are desperately trying to mainstream the risk of contracting HIV-AIDS outside of their so-called "community" for political and financial benefit.
Where are all the blood banks clamoring for queer blood and plasma donors?
There are none.
It's hate-America leftist politicians and activists trying to impose risk to everyone against their own most vulnerable neighbors and citizens in an effort to pander to a bunch of disease infested perverts who happen to be affluent and influential campaign donors. In a word, queers.

I have had this disease since 1990. I know for a FACT it doesn't care if you are gay or straight. The current law is stupid. It targets only one groups and only because it assume ALL of us are guilty of risky behavior.

I have watched enough episodes of Maury Povich to know that many heterosexuals are NOT practicing safe sex. When a woman isn't even sure of who the father of her baby is, do you really think she is "safe" to donate blood?

I now I am responding to someone with a lot of issues. A person who MUST rely on lame politically correct slogans and finger pointing in order to get some daily dose that they are important and "moral".

But the fact remains that I am honest about my status, and that with current testing, it would be very easy for my blood to be used to help someone who already has HIV. Too bad you are so caught up in being a sock puppet for wealthy political pundits that you lack the capacity to see how allowing me to donate blood would in effect double the amount of blood available, anytime I donate. Because by allowing me to donate, one more pint of blood becomes available for people who are NOT infected by HIV.

One last comment. How often do you get tested? Or are you such a loser that your social life guarantees you are never going to be at risk of contracting HIV, Hep, or any of a number of STD's. Oh and don't claim that because you are straight and have a girl friend in a monogamous relationship, you aren't at risk. I've watched enough Jerry Springer to know how many "monogamous" relationships are as real as Dick Cheney's combat experience in Korea and Vietnam.

Once again clueless, I have to comment. It's about time you had the 'sex talk' with your parents. Since 1997, heterosexual senior citizens have been the group with the highest percentage increase of new cases heterosexual women of child bearing years an minority men have had the highest numbers of new cases, not gays and lesbians.

Does Kerry just hate Americans? A few weeks ago,
"he acted like a loon when he made his speech on
the teapeople. You can disagree with "THE" people,
but trashing them as he did, it just stupid..
Now hes for the English and how they treat AIDS...
How does he keep his seat in the senate. Are people that clueless? We need his kind in government, for what? Makes you wonder about the
sanity of the democrats..

I disagree with one statement you made. Horris's ignorance isn't shocking. I happen to believe it's genetic, and re-enforced by his chosen life style.

More than happy to share the entire list and the draft dodgers and evaders- and in particular- the chicken hawks, and presidential and presidential candidates who avoided the draft or worse (IMHO) used political connection to get into the Reserves and not fulfill that minimum obligation-- is heavily tilted to the Republican side.

Putting to one side that this is about increasing the blood supply or should be rather than some bigot running a homophobic diatribe... and we know why homophobes are homophobic...

Not a myth that heterosexual do get HIV/AIDs. It's for the most part equal opportunism expect when it comes to It's the goverment who used GLBT as scapegoat reason why the diseased spread by unchecked heterosexuals who cheated on their wife/husbands by have sex with other heterosexuals.

If GLBT are treat as HUMAN BEINGS with SAME EQUAL RIGHTS they wouldn't be at highers risk group for suicidal, HIV/AIDS etc.

Most child molesters are HETEROSEXUAL. Most victims are girls usulay by their dads or other male family members.
