Giving Blood

You should NEVER give blood if:

1. You carry the hep B or C virus or the HIV virus.
2. You are a man who has had sex with another man, even "safe sex" using a condom.
3. You have ever worked as a prostitute.
4. You have ever injected yourself with drugs, even once.

1, 3 and 4 make sense. But number two? what is the problem with that?

Giving blood is the only thing I've ever got an A+ at.

You should have lied on your application, Spoff. They'd never have known.

The problem with (2) is that - It's an exit, not an entrance!!

Hang on, it was Adam and Steve, not Adam and Eve. Damn typos.

"You are a man who has had sex with another man, even "safe sex" using a condom."

It's a hangover from the days when AIDS was considered the gay disease. If you are waiting for a bone-marrow transplant to save your life, they wouldn't tell you that they found a suitable match but he was gay.

I new someone would say that Zoe!

Is there a difference between a man and a man having sex and a man doing the same to a woman.

Doesn't say you can't give blood then!

It's sometimes nice to be obvious, Spoff.

It also doesn't mention that you can't give blood if you've had a blood transfusion yourself.

re: Giving Blood

i had a friend who was a haemophliac (spelling ?). he had a blood transfusion and contracted hiv from that. it was a few years ago, when it was all still new. unfortunatly from trying to save his life they ultimately gave him a worse sentence. this should never have happened and any checks to lower the chances of repeat episodes are greatly welcomed. even i cant work nbr two out though spoff!!

You might touch a tail with your tail with one of them.

Seriously, it's from the time AIDS first emerged. While you might be negative for 1, you could still pass on a newly contracted does of HIV which I think takes up to 6 months to register on a test?

Indeed trodbitch - high risk groups and all that. Anyone who was teenager in teh 80's and 90's had that drummed into them - remember the falling tombstone adverts?

Now AIDS is seen as an Africa disease, consequently the condom is going out of fashion and incidents of otehr STD's herpes clymidia sypholis - some of which are quite nasty with long lasting consequences are on the rise.

I gave a pint or two when I was younger but nowadays it seems to be all a bit tricky - by appointement or wait two hours or whatever. If you could just pitch up, give a pint and get a pint of Guiness for your trouble I'm sure there would be less shortages.
