I was recently at a blood drive and one of the notes on the little rules and guidelines they make you read irked me. Basically, it said "Do not donate if you are male and had sexual contact with another male, even once". Really, the whole vibe made it sound derogatory towards gay men. My main concern is why does this rule exist? Is it really just a health precaution? Or is it meant to scare potential donors from having gay sex?
