The gay question is part of a lot of screening questions. I haven't given blood a lot lately, but I used to do it fairly often. As I recall, there were questions about sex, overseas travel, body piercings, hepatitis, tattoos, a whole range of stuff. The interview part took longer and longer because it seemed like questions were always being added. This stupidity is unbelievable. You also can't give blood if you are running a fever... is this discrimination, too?

Yeah, and you also can't give blood if you take Propecia. Obviously discrimination against bald guys!

Yep, all kinds of questions there. I couldn't give blood for many years because I kept going to areas where we had to take malaria prophylactics. I didn't feel discriminated against.
