yeah, it’s just totaLLY insane that they scream about ‘discrimination’ because they aren’t allowed to give blood anonymously without any screening first- I don’t understand it- it’s totally devoid of common sense-

When you donate blood, no matter who you are or how you answer the questionnaire, your blood is still screened for certain blood borne pathogens including HIV.

https://www.redcrossblood.org/biomedical-services/blood-diagnostic-testing/blood-testing.html

Each and every time I’ve donated blood (which I do a couple of times a year) I have to answer a lengthy questionnaire. But at the end of the day, the answers I put down are voluntary. It is not as if a background check is performed to confirm my answers are truthful.

Nearly half of all Americans are married (48%) While that certainly doesn't reduce the risk of STD to zero, it would provide a pretty decent degree of safety.

Yep! and being married for so many years, guarantees that there is no possibility of contracting an STD

you long time married guys may know why...

the problem was that back when, they weren’t screening for aids- and i don’t really wanna risk a mistake in screening of known aids patients who give blood- aids is forever- and it’s deadly-

Somehow, I have beaten these horrible odds. In 30-plus years of marriage, never using “protection”, I dodged this gigantic cumulative risk. Liberals would never guess how I managed that miracle.

Half of Americans have had or currently suffer from STDs. That's huge.

Couple that with the fact that the CDC (or was it the FDA?) determined that condoms fail 40% of the time in faggot sex and 10% of the time in heterosexual sex.

If ever there was an argument for heterosexual, monogamous marriage.............

You could have been infected as a teen. The virus can stay dormant for decades and often pops up decades later when your auto immune system is weakened.

Very unlikely, per my doctor. The initial infection is always accompanied by a flare up before any dormancy is experienced. I never had a single cold sore or anything like one, ever in stressful times. This first flare up was a doozy, covering my chin as well. The doctor confirmed it as a new infection.

That 6% number is way high. It’s based on 20MM new cases of STD per year, not on the number of new people catching something. So that 20MM number includes people who get several diseases, or other diseases more than once, counting each case as a ‘new’ person. So cut that number in half, if not smaller. Also, not everyone has the same amount of sex, some are way more active (not every positive encounter leads to a positive transmission). Some are also more spread around, greatly increasing their chances of running into someone who’s infected.

Even if we ignore all those factors, saying everyone has a 6% chance of catching something each year, is wrong. The proper stat would be that 6% of the populace catches something each year, not that each member has a 6% chance. Details do matter.

It doesn’t even required direct contact. You can get it from shared eating utensils.

I heard it was tractor seats.

Letting some stranger stick his privates up your butt is dangerous? Who would have ever guessed?

Yep. Same here. During over 30 years of having unprotected sex with my wife, not only have I never contracted a single venereal disease but neither has she. Amazing but true.

“I still blame MaryJane Rottencrotch.”

Question: Why at a redneck picnic do the women not wear panties?

Answer: To keep the flies away from the fried chicken.

Amazing but true.

Far-left academics will never bother to study this medical miracle. When there is no possible logical explanation, the only alternative is random chance. Who does studies on pure luck?
