China Changes Policy And Allows Lesbians To Donate Blood

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT

China allows lesbians to donate blood

China is breaking down barriers…one brick at a time.

The country has finally decided to allow lesbians to give blood. Gay guys, on the other hand, are sadly still on the blacklist.

Why has the Chinese government been turning down all of this perfectly good blood throughout all these years? Apparently, they have a very primitive understanding of AIDS and thought still kinda think that "being a homosexual equals AIDS."

Activist Li Yinhe explained:

"Inadequate understanding of the two things is the main reason why "homosexuals" were listed as a group not allowed to donate blood. Judging from the amendment, the country's views on homosexuals and AIDS has progressed."

Much like the rest of the world, gay men still aren't allowed to give blood in the Asian country because of AIDS fears (even though straight men can easily contract the disease too), so China hasn't progressed TOO MUCH, but any progress is good progress.

At least they caught up with the United States' backwards policy, anway.

    The policy ban on gay men donating blood isn't backward, Perez, and there is zero way you can spin it to look like it is. The tissue inside the rectum is extremely soft and can tear very easily, making it much more susceptible to disease. Anyone participating in anal sex is at risk, but gay men have the most anal sex. In the USA, the UK, and many other European countries, HIV and AIDS have affected young gay men more than any other group of people. These are facts. If I need blood, I want to make sure that what I get isn't contaminated by HIV or AIDS, and the best/easiest way to ensure this is to ban homosexual men from donating. I am aware that heterosexuals also carry the virus, but statistically speaking, they are fewer in number. Your militant gay does not entitle you to put people like me at risk just to make a point. So STFU about this.

    While this is good, I would be way more happy if they changed the one kid only policy, that literally throws thousands of girls to orphanages with terrible conditions and cruel treatment.
    Also, what Omniscient Gal said about the rectum tissue is true, but that could easily be arranged by the testing of everyone who wants to give blood.

    Re: Ana – I agree that testing everyone who wants to give blood could allow some homosexual males who are free of HIV/AIDS to donate blood. But testing costs money, and who would foot that bill? The taxpayer has more than enough of a burden thanks to high tax rates and higher government spending. I know I'm not willing to give free AIDS tests to everyone, and I think that a program to test the blood of donors would, if subsidized by the taxpayer, become a free way to get tested. If a homosexual male wants to donate blood, then let HIM pay for the test.
    As for you, Perez, I don't mind telling you that your cries about "equality" are getting more ridiculous and more tiresome by the day. I do not give you permission to have YOUR supposed equality at MY expense, and you know what? You DO need MY permission to make that happen, and I don't care if you don't like it.

    Gay people have higher STD rates. It cost a lot of money to screen blood for 239480 test. So, if I were spending millions of dollars on tests, then I would disallow the "groups" with the highest STD statistics. Which would be blacks and gays. Would save a whole lot of money. Just like if gingers had the highest STD rates and it was STATICALLY PROVEN, I would disallow gingers to give blood. Do not get mad at me for what your minority is doing. If every single gay guy I meet is a flamboyant, eccentric queen then don't get pissed off at me for stereotyping gays. Get mad at them for being stereotypes.

    Or you can refer to Omniscient Gal's post ^_^

    What about Hepatitis A, the most common type, usually contacted thru feces? Seems more likely to occur in China since Perez and his mama traveled there.

    It is true that homosexuals have a much higher STD rate that heterosexuals, which is probably because the only reasons homosexuals would use protection is because of STD's and not pregnancy, whereas straight couples use protection pretty much to prevent pregnancy. The reality is that it would require a lot of money to do all of the extra screening required to test the blood, and right now, they have decided its just not worth it. It's not bigoted legislation, it's smart legislation. And with all the REAL bigoted legislation out there that DOES exist, why don't we try and concentrate our efforts on fixing those things instead?

    Re: Ana – I Live in China, and the 1 child policy is brilliant! There's way too many people here.. 1,300,000 is a large number and Cities like Beijing and Shanghai are over crowded. There's barely any apartment space left.
