Universities to host ‘National Gay Blood Drive’ (Free at Last- Free at Last)
Campus Reform ^ | 7-11-2014 | Kaitlyn Schallhorn

Posted on 07/14/2014 8:13:08 AM PDT by equalator

Universities across the country are hosting a National Gay Blood Drive today to encourage the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to change its current policies which prevent gay men from donating blood.Activists have pushed for gay men to be able to donate blood for the past several years. In 2010, a government health committee heard testimonies and reviewed the policy, but ultimately recommended keeping the ban and researching alternative policies.

Those at the blood drive today will be given the opportunity to sign a petition against the FDA’s policy which will be sent to the White House.

Each doner will be given a pistol with one bullet in the chamber... so they can play the firearm version of getting transfusions from libtard idiots.

Meanwhile:

WHO warns HIV 'exploding' among gay men, urges preventive drugs

The blood donation issue is is all part of the drive to classify HIV as just another disease which impacts all groups equally, and that gay males are no more at risk of getting HIV than nuns in a convent.

However, there is this pesky thing called truth.

What’s with this agitation to overturn the ban on homosexual blood donations??

There are others who are also banned from giving blood.

Anyone involved in prostitution, either selling or buying such services, is banned.

Anyone who spent a certain amount of time in Britain during the mad cow disease outbreak is banned.

Anyone who has injected street drugs is banned.

I think there are some other groups for which there is a blanket ban, similar to the ban on homosexuals donating.

The point is, these bans are in place NOT because blood banks are discriminating against homosexuals, but because they have come up with various health threat criteria which makes people in these groups high risk of spreading disease. Not just AIDS and HIV, but other illnesses as well.

But to the homosexuals, it’s all about them.

Part of the long standing goal and game plan of the gay lobby has always been to turn AIDS into a heterosexual disease, ideally an epidemic.

Fact.

Liberalism is a force for all that is wrong, stupid, against nature and dangerous.
Liberals would rather have millions of normal people sacrificed on the altar of political correctness than tell the “sexual minorities” that their actions are dangerous and against nature.

From the movie "The Aviator" with Leonardo DiCaprio after he gets in a plane accident-

Doctor: [after detailing Howard's terrible injuries in the plane crash] He's getting blood transfusions now, but, uh...

Noah: Whose blood?

Doctor: I'm sorry?

Noah: Whose blood?

Doctor: From our stock.

Noah: Oh, he's not gonna like that.

I wonder that too. I have heard that anyone involved with prostitution, either seller or buyer, is banned. This behavior is a high risk behavior for both buyer and seller, so blood banks, based on health risk criteria, have banned such people from donating.

The homosexuals make it sound as if it’s all about them. In reality, it’s about health risk criteria being applied to how blood banks handle blood donations.

Just last week a bunch of Freepers were adamant the CDC would never allow this.

My argument - the CDC is a part of our massive, uncontrolled progressive experiment where politics drives the bus. the CDC is controlled by the same Washington bubble ideologues as other agencies.

It doesn’t matter how stupid an idea it is - it can happen.

"They are also seeking to decriminalize refusal to notify sex partners of their HIV status."

Wile requiring heterosexuals to file written consents in triplicate prior to having sex ... unless you are Muslim, because that would be Islamophobic.

Anyway, the white, privileged, sexist, cisnormatives must be held accountable.

Were it not for the possibility of things getting messed up for those of us who would rather not have gay blood in a transfusion, I'd say let them. It will be a self limiting phenomenon.

From "Darwin's Ghost" by Steve Jones ... page 6.

"AIDS is an illness of social change; of travel and of promiscity. In the United States most infections are passed on by homosexuals, by drug injectors and by those unfortunate enough to receive a transfusion of contaminated blood."

Jone's book is a fine update of Darwin's original work ... It's subtitle is "THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES UPDATED." One statement from the book's back cover is ... "Jones is a writer of engaging wit and dazling erudition and has been called "the British Carl Sagan."

Anyone who spent a certain amount of time in Britain during the mad cow disease outbreak is banned.

IIRC, anyone who spent more than six months in Western Europe is banned. I was stationed in Germany from 77-81, which prohibits me from donating blood.

The Red Cross center in Dallas lost 20% of their donors over this.

Well, if HIV donors are allowed, pretty soon it is a disease that anyone getting a blood transfusion can share. NO common sense.

I don’t even know where to start on how bad of an idea this is.

The good news is, this gives me ANOTHER reason to stay well and out of a hospital. I once joked that the next time I want to go to a hospital, I want to go in horizontally and out horizontally soon thereafter. But, in this state, the coroner can pronounce you dead without any need to go to a hospital and have a doctor do it. So, if I’m lucky, I won’t ever have to go!

No! But absolute consistency with the same egalitarian pursuit that has set the Federal Bureaucracy into its present intrusions into civilian education, health care & welfare.

This, truly is the clear application of egalitarian fantasy, and the war against "discrimination," which used to be understood as discernment; but now is understood--by the initiated--as the ultimate evil.

Where does this inability to make rational distinctions take us? The Greatest Mischief Ever Wrought

Perhaps this escapade will wake up some who have been applauding other aspects of the Leftist war against reality; but you can be certain that many on American campuses are too far gone to ever really "wake up."

“Whom God would destroy, He first makes mad!”

I have said for years — to friends and more than a few radio audiences — that the homosexual community wants the legal right to perform in public acts for which a heterosexual couple would — and should — be arrested for indecency.  If you’ve ever seen the images of how the queers in Frisco and New Orleans behave during their periodic “celebrations” of their “deathstyle,” it has already happened there.   The next two years will give the Nancy Pelosi crowd a chance to federalize their deathstyle.
 
I really don’t care HOW they got to where they are — recruited or via genetic predisposition — in their genitalia worship (and that’s what it is), I just don’t want them demonstrating their explicit sexual behavior in front of our kids and grandkids.  ADULT homosexuals have the same right as the rest of us to do nearly whatever they wish IN THE BEDROOM, where it belongs.
 
Why do I call it a “deathstyle?”  For over 20 years, my wife was a member of a well-known ladies chorus.  One of their first directors was a gifted musician who also happened to be openly homosexual.  He died a slow, agonizing death — at age 43 — of AIDS.  How “gay” could THAT be? Most homosexuals — many of whom have as many as several hundred unprotected encounters a year — ARE dead at an early age of HIV infections which explains why there are so few OLD homosexuals. And even that “protection” ain’t. With even the condom manufacturers admitting to a 20% failure rate, it’s akin to playing Russian roulette with your willie.

Bill Clinton’s CDC released figures a few years ago reflecting that fully 85% of all AIDS/HIV cases are
1. Active, non-monogamous homosexuals, (the largest subset)
2. Heterosexuals and bisexuals who have had sex with group 1 and
3. IV drug abusers who share needles.
(Kinda gives new meaning to Romans 6:23, doesn’t it?)
The remaining 15% are those who have contracted AIDS via other, non-sexual/non-drug means SUCH AS TRANSFUSIONS OF TAINTED BLOOD (which one homosexual “leader” on the West Coast URGED his fellow homosexuals to CONTINUE to attempt to contaminate in order to involve the straight community in the push to increase federal funding for AIDS research).

What a guy — er — GAY!

Only good news in this mess:

Only three schools actually listed as comprising this “nationwide” group...

> University of Cincinnati Hoxworth Blood Center
> Lane Community College (Oregon)
> Western Michigan University

Anybody around who’s got any of those on his/her resume?

Don’t know if it would do any good, but a nicely-worded resignation from the Alumni Association would at least make you feel a little better.

(Almost went back and burned sheepskins on the Student Union front lawn of the schools I attended and I’m still getting the damn Beg-a-Thon mail from every one of ‘em.)
