FDA says gay men still canât donate blood - AIDS - MSNBC.com Doctor have proven test that show HIV in 10-28 days. but the FDA is still living in the 1970's. Read the story on MSNBC. Gay = Prostitite = IV drug user banned for life from blood donation, even when they are proven safe. Of Course only the ones that admit it are banned. Those that pass for straight are not banned, althought they may be much less safe than the ones that are honest. some of you tell me this isn't happening here. you are out of touch if you believe this is an island of tolerance, in a world of hate. Hate has been hiding in the dark for years, it is still there. Just because the KKK isn't on the main streets anymore does not mean the world is a hate free zone.
