    Basically It doesn't make any sense to apply any additional limitation to gay people apart from the general ones. Blood gets tested anyway.

    There are many countries where you are not even asked about your orientation and nothing bad comes out of it (The obviously do ask about health and unsafe sex but as a general thing not homosexual sex.I think the only European countries with restrictions in that sense are UK and France. I might be wrong though, but at least in Spain no one ask you if you are into Dicks.

    I think it is just senseless discrimination, honestly
