Blood on their hands...

Posted on Thu, Feb 3, 2011 at 12:12 PM

With the opening of the new blood clinic location comes the campaign in search of people to donate. I would absolutely without a question gladly, willingly and often donate if only they would accept my blood. But, alas... I'm gay. For some reason, that makes my blood akin to pure arsenic (despite being 100% healthy). Considering they test every donor's blood for possible infections and diseases before allowing that blood to be used for transfusion... why can I not donate? It's just absolutely wrong and deplorable. I'm capable of saving lives with my blood, but, despite age old discrimination, prejudice and ignorance, I can't. I guess I'm still just a second class citizen after all. —Bleeding Heart
