Surely here the point is the blood given to those in need of it are assured it is as safe as it can possibly be. I heard from a medical professional that because sperm suppresses immunity system which has a great purpose for egg fertilization otherwise the sperm would get an immunity response. Sperm in anal and oral sex bear the risk of small local injury where immunity suppressing chemicals would suppress the whole system of the person.

Straight people engage in high-risk sexual behavior as well, no one is denying that but HIV is not one of the prominent STDs being passed around in the straight community. Of course, it can still happen but the chances are higher in the LGBTQ community. People who lived in the UK can’t donate blood in most other countries due to mad cows disease possibly causing CJD. I was a vegetarian during the outbreak but I’m still barred from giving blood where I live in El Salvador.

I don’t feel any less because I can’t give blood and even though I’m sure my blood is safe I wouldn’t dream of breaking the rules. When I return to the UK I’m not allowed to give blood because I have been in El Salvador which is considered a higher risk of other infections than the UK. It isn’t racist or homophobic to try to protect the recipients of blood as much as possible. It’s sometimes hard to realize when you have been subjected to discrimination but it’s not always about you.
I was a vegetarian during that time but cannot give blood in here in Canada. However, I do get cross about it as there has been mad cow disease in Alberta and they don’t check about that. However, I would never dream of breaking the rules. I look forward to the day they can screen blood for CJD.
