This is NOT cool or edgy or making a statement! THIS IS A HEALTH RISK!
THIS IS DISGUSTING BEHAVIOUR THAT SHOULD NOT BE CONDONED!
I’m so sick of the idea that doing something big and strange means it’s good for the LGBT community, like putting people at risk of contracting a disease they are probably trying to 100% avoid getting! Why would someone in the LGBT+ community a) do this and b) say this is a “powerful statement” like it’s a good thing?!?!
Huffpost are actual trash that promote such bs ideas
in many countries organizations that accept blood donations are extremely biased. they refuse donations from gay men where i live and in many other countries. its the first time ive heard of refusing donation because the donor had sex with someone from Africa but it also sounds biased and uncientific. the orgs ask these invasive questions instead of accurate tests because they either want to profile people or they want to bar certain people from donating blood.
