So while I see what you’re saying it misses the point of the rule and how it is homophobic. It’s not rooted in homophobia at all. It’s rooted in medical knowledge that says the HIV virus can be difficult to detect during this period. After 3 months 99.9% of viruses can be detected. Sorry to derail the virtue signallers bandwagon. As you were. The way the law is applied is ridiculous and discriminatory. I’ve been in a relationship with my partner for 10 years, but by law, I’d have to abstain for 3 months before being able to donate blood?

Because obviously, being gay makes me a magnet for HIV. The problem is that gay men in committed, monogamous relationships are banned from giving blood, but promiscuous, straight men and women are not. What about all the women not allowed to donate if they’ve had intercourse with a gay man or a man who has engaged in homosexual sex?

I used to date a guy who was bisexual, and he’d slept with another man previously – they told me that I could never donate because of this. That’s homophobia straight up – I can never, ever donate according to them because of that. There are restrictions on giving blood on all sorts of grounds. For example, you also can’t give blood if you’ve previously received blood prior to the 1980s due to how blood was donated back then and the lack of checks surrounding it at the time.
It’s actually more complex than many people realize. It’s not homophobic at all, is it?. I mean a straight dude can raw dog random chicks all the time and still donate. But I, who gets tested on a regular basis like most gay men I know, can’t. Not homophobic at all. It’s not about homophobia at all. It’s about the risks of viruses transferred via blood. The risk of these viruses being transferred during anal sex is higher than other forms of sex.
