They should just change the policy and make it so EVERYONE who wishes to give blood must have a full blood screening prior to their donation. And then, if the person is clean, they could maybe request abstaining from sex, if necessary, between the time the blood screening takes place until they donate. Then it wouldn’t be a question of orientation or gender, it would be completely based on the health of the person. Well, it would also be a matter of priorities and willpower, if they were asked to abstain. Basically, the current regulations are archaic, and we’re about to enter 2015. They need to get with the times. Technology will allow for this change. The question is, will the FDA?
