    So I really apreciate the topic of this video. Drawing more attention to the FDAs regulations again mlm is important imo, but the humor in tjis segment just misses the mark here. Devoting a significant chunk of the segment to passing as straight reinforces sterotypes that gay men and straight men have to fit a certain experience. That an the commentary on the sexual intercouse restrictions, where are you going to find a man who hasnt had sex in 3 months (Im paraphrasing here), erases the experiences of asexual, and bi men. In my opinion, The Daily Show does good work by drawing attention to underreported aspects of the world and have demonstrated they are better than this segment shows.

Also as someone who was a regular donor prior to moving, the questions and disqualification for donation don't just apply to homosexuals. They apply to anyone who is sexually active.

    @CZpersi Although there have been many advancements in science, testing itself is not infallible. Statistically, we will never have diagnostic tests and exams that have 100% specificity (correctly identifying individuals without a disease/condition) or 100% sensitivity (correctly identifying individuals with a disease/condition).

    I can see why these rules exist, and it's not homophobia. In France, the incidence of HIV has been estimated to be 200 times higher for men who have sex with men. And in France straight people also have a requirement of only one partner in the last 4 months. Now, if experts believe that these restrictions can be safely eased we should do it, but it's important to note that donating blood is not a right, it's a service, and the priority is the safety of the recipient. Btw, in Europe, you don't get paid for donating, and this is to ensure the accuracy of screenings.

    Make it about "new partner", not about what kind of partner : in Belgium, you can't donate blood if you've had a new partner in the last four months, so no "if you've had sex with 100 women you can donate blood", like in the US. However, our system is still f'd up, since for gay men, we require 1 year abstinence. :(

    Wow that’s disturbing that this is STILL going on :( my first blood drive in 1994 I was grilled about my sexuality, when I didn’t even know myself back then , I was 16 but I wanted to do what everyone else was doing “ the right thing “ and donate blood . Well that quickly changed after I wasn’t sure what to select on my paperwork . The nurse was intensely homophobic and she did the very same thing to all of my friends not just me . Years later I will NEVER GIVE BLOOD ! It’s unfortunate people in the medical community ( myself and my sister included ) most do not care or pass judgment on who someone is by who they choose to date or have intimate relations with . But unfortunately small minded immature ****heads are still in that same profession, so my LGBTQ* brothers and sisters- most will choose to not disclose there private information and I will never again my self .

    It's a stupid rule, but all you have to do is lie about it, if one actually cares that much about donating blood. No one's going to arrest you because you "forgot" that you've slept with other gay men before, when you went to donate blood. Dignity and making a political statement vs saving lives.

    *Apologies for the long post/replies below* From a healthcare professional and platelet donor POV… his clip is a little misleading as there is a reason for an abstinence period. ~14% of individuals (1 in 7) living with HIV are undiagnosed and in 2018, 69% of newly diagnosed cases were in the MSM population (1 - US HHS). Acute HIV infections can be misdiagnosed as individuals may exhibit non-specific flu-like symptoms (2 - CDC). Typically ~2 weeks after infection, HIV RNA and p24 antigens can be detected; however, it may take 3 to 6 months post-exposure to develop detectable antibodies (3). Yes, there are a variety tests available (4 - CDC)… even OTC ones such as the OraQuick In-Home (5 - package insert)… but for testing in blood donations there must be a balance of safety, efficacy, and cost to be considered in addition to the accurate identification of when the window period begins and ends.

    @CZpersi Yes, you are correct in the statement that HIV does not care about who is gay and who is straight and I agree that sex with unknown partners will remain risky for all parties; however, there is data that identifies certain groups have higher risk and thus cannot treat all sexual activity as equal risk. Science is fluid - with new information, we come to new conclusions and adjust accordingly. We can review and update our policies, but this takes time and should not be rushed. From a public health perspective where rules affect tens of thousands, if not millions, you must consider the larger implications, especially as regulations take years of debate and conducting studies before change. As I mentioned before, health care is a delicate balance of safety, efficacy, and cost… and this also includes risk-benefit assessments. The CDC (1) reported that 37,968 new HIV cases in 2018 could be primarily attributed to 3 categories: 69% (aka 26,198) gay/bisexual/MSM + 24% (aka 9,112) heterosexual + 7% (2,658) IVDU (1 - US HHS). Unfortunately, this source [2 - Int’l Journal of STD & AIDS] is only a review article from 2015, but it reports that 45 days from time of infection (which in itself is difficult to properly identify), even the most advanced antibody tests have a 0.01 probability of reporting a false-negative (aka an individual actually having HIV has a negative test) . I was always terrible at stats, but I believe if you use the 0.01 probability with the aforementioned figures, 379 of the HIV positive cases would still have negative tests. 261 false-negatives would be attributed to gay/bi/MSM vs. 91 hetero. With the risk of these individuals having a much higher false-negative result, you must see why the regulations are very conservative. (Also please note that the probability of a false-negative can never reach 0.) On top of statistics, we must consider cost. Patients/recipients of blood had to pay on average $343 (plus or minus $135) per unit in 2011 (3)… this is equivalent to $396 in 2020 dollars (4). Adding more testing would incur more statistical error in addition to more cost and time… important factors when working in the health care setting. I understand why people are in an uproar in regards to what seems to be blatant discrimination, but there are numerous variables that providers and decision makers must consider to ensure safety to both the donor and recipient. From a health care professional's perspective, I am always juggling between the beneficial and adverse effects to treatment regimens based on facts and not bias... I want to believe that others in similar positions are attempting to do the same. (1) (2) - (3) - go to --> search the title "Costs to Hospitals of Acquiring and Processing Blood in the US: A Survey of Hospital-Based Blood Banks and Transfusion Services" --> click the [PDF] link to access the primary literature/research paper (4) -

    Fair enough. But this does not explain the ban on gay blood donations. Any sex with unknown partner is risky. Heterosexual intercourse would have to be treated exactly the same way, because HIV does not care about who is gay and who is straight.

    Haven't had covid (that I know of, since testing for plebes is abysmally lacking), but my blood products used to be highly sought after because of one virus I'd never been exposed to, that let my platelets/plasma/whole blood be used for premature babies. Then the Mad Cow scare happened, Variant Crutchfeld-Jacobs disease. They added a question that did I live in the UK for more that 3 months in the 80's. Well, I was stationed there. Pretty sure all the chow hall beef came from Montana (that's what they told me at the time, but who knows). So even if they still can't detect whatever thing in the blood that can cause mis-folded proteins causing swiss-cheese brains, I can't donate. That gay thing is completely MORE bogus though.

    ANYONE, straight, bi, gay, trans, male, female can have HIV etc. Many say it's scientifically valid for these rules to be put in place because apparantly people that to anal are more likely to have these illnesses (I don't know if it's true or not so don't come after me if that's false, please). Several straight people do anal as well. If anything they could check for illnesses before collecting the plasma. It's not like only gay folks can have these illnesses. I also saw someone commenting that even if you have HIV or smthn it can be cleared out so the blood is clean. If that's true that's cool, but if anything, maybe there should be a routine check up (regarldess of sex, gender and sexuality) before giving plasma/blood, to eliminate that risk completely. Idk, just a thought. NOT AT ALL saying these regulations for gay men are valid or okay in any way, I hope you got my point here.

    In Vedic (the root of Hinduism which I am) they say the yogis decisively proved that gay can a be a beautiful thing just like a flower or a sunset or anything else. This is huge in that culture because the fact whether something is good or bad is based off a deeper sense of beauty. I think the people who come up with these rules are either afraid of them selves or the bad bunch of perverts for which there are an equal amount in straight people if not more.

    Don’t worry you are not alone, I’m a straight white woman who can’t donate because I lived in Europe in the 1980’s. I was in the army stationed in Germany, the military bought meat from England, which at that time was going through the mad cow disease problem, so A LOT of service members have probably been exposed to the variant of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. The UK really screwed the pooch with the BSE situation and it’s overall effect won’t be known for generations.

    the real reason is because Gay Men have Jojo powers in their blood, so the government is afraid of too many people with stands.

    People are dying, and there are still laws in place that prevent specific groups from safely contributing with a vital resource to protect others from this pandemic?

    i am gay and i know that gay men are usually at great risk of disease transmission. the reason is not just prejudice. it is they way they party. most gay men (not all) go to sex parties. they transmit diseases easily because of this situation. i understand the history really well. all the medical establishment needs to do is test ALL blood that is donated for any pathogens. getting verbal testimony that the person was abstinent is not efficient and is dangerously inadequate. ALL blood can be tested and should be. no one would know if a person is gay or not. straight men transmit diseases too, anyone can. now is the time for a universal blood testing program. NO ONES BAD BLOOD SHOULD BE ACCEPTED, TEST ALL BLOOD as a matter of routine.

    Testing blood is compulsory... also, blood centers do not "sell" blood per se... they are recuperating cost of testing, hiring staff, overhead, etc. Go to --> search the title "Costs to Hospitals of Acquiring and Processing Blood in the US: A Survey of Hospital-Based Blood Banks and Transfusion Services" --> click the [PDF] link to access the primary literature/research paper.

    About the content : good job for showing this non sense, we need to fight for everyone’s rights. No to discrimination, I really liked the professionalism of the guy interviewed. He could have had more time. About the interviewer : I’m sorry to say it but there is level missing. Please improve the quality of your scripts and the professionalism of them. Many times in this show (exept for Trevor wich is just great) I feel like there is no respect or real intrest for the topic, they are just rushing for a joke. Good day for everyone !

    My hetero ex boyfriend has been a regular donor... but I learned too late he's also a sad, nearing 50yo behind-my-back wannabe f*ckboy pornstar. Knowing what I now know, I'd take blood from a healthy gay man than him any day. Don't judge based on preference... judge on lifestyle.
