Oh, youre talking about at the blood bank?
Not really. Anywhere will do.
I think they use a form that asks questions and they trust the people who want to give blood to be honest.
Ah! And there's the rub - so to speak. Let's say someone is NOT gay (not that there's anything wrong with that) but fill out the form checking off that they ARE gay. They'll need proof. Will pictures do?
On the flip side - if someone IS infected but says that they aren't gay? That could cause problems - no?

The form does not
ask if you are gay (homosexual, please), it only asks, if you are a man, if you have had sex with another man since 1977. This implies that if you had man-with-man sex prior to this, you are allowed. Furthermore, a man may suffer from same-sex attraction (a pathology) and yet not engage in homosexual activity (yes, there are many such people, no matter what the media, educators and liberals will tell you.) He would not be banned from giving.
We need to wrest this idiotic discussion from the hands of the sodomites and put it back on a rational path. They want people to think that "gays" are being banned from donating because they are "gay", when it is merely the well-founded, rational, solidly proven risk that such behavior presents to the blood supply.
