I’ve had it up to here with the stupidity of our government. When I heard the announcement that they were thinking about banning gay organ donors yesterday, I just about had a heart attack. Come on people, how stupid can you be? Do you honestly think that, a) receiving a life-saving organ from a homosexual male will make you homosexual, and that, b) there is a higher likelihood that the organ will have some blood-borne disease coming from a gay man? Give me a break. Like the organs aren’t screened for stuff like that anyway. I think it’s bad enough that they can’t donate blood, but now this. If you take away this right, you are taking away the lives of the people that could have been saved by organs donated by gay men. Shame on you Mr. All Powerful Government Man, and those of you who are in favor of this deplorable mess. When are you going to wake up and realize that homosexuals, regardless of sex, are just like you and I?
