@cattebune literally me. I was a regular blood donor up until the moment I figured out I was trans, from then on I haven't been able to donate... :/
@GreenandBlack It sucks like I'm not on any AAs or anything that would cause me to be disqualified (any longer) but because I'm classified as MSM I'd have to abstain from sex for like a year(i think) bleh
@cattebune aye the "MSM" thing disqualified me before the AAs.
@GreenandBlack It's ridiculous, like I don't understand why it's still a thing, it's straight up homophobic
@cattebune It's a relic of gay panic... pure and simple
Hell, my brother still thinks AIDs jokes are funny :/
@GreenandBlack ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, yeah.
Like queer people have the safest sex these days, I mean how many cishet folks could tell you their HIV status, or actually get vaccinated for stuff like hep a/b or hpv, or take PReP? I know I do all of the above but I can damn well say I don't know a single cishet person who does
green party story, homophobia
@cattebune When I was in the Greens, a bunch of queer folk were trying to change GPEW policy so it'd be for reforming blood donation to allow for queer people to donate.
Aaaand what followed was a bunch of middle-aged cishet white people telling us how our "lifestyle" is "statistically more dangerous"
