If you lived in Europe for 3 months between 1980 and 1996 you can’t donate blood which basically takes out everyone who ever served in the military and was stationed overseas anyone who studied abroad or anyone who had a job overseas during that period The Red Cross is always announcing they have a shortage of blood donors but they create the shortage with the byzantine array of restrictions that they refuse to revisit Okay the above stuff is stigma and total crap we have efficient screens for HIV and things now the blood will be screened anyway banning people for their sexual history is completely prejudice and its wasteful and those rules really need to go But the last one the ban on donation for people living in Europe is actually done for a reason Its an attempt to limit the spread of vCJD which we don’t have a way of screening for right now Last i went you could donate blood if trans I was openly trans at my blood clinic and they took me So its probably just that particular clinic which I say so that other trans people arent discouraged from trying to donate Also… as long as its the only question you lie on… if theres a blood shortage emergency I really dont see why not lie on that one question Like its terrible to have to do that and im not trying to make you feel bad if you avoiding donating because of it but since we know its not scientifically founded it seems perfectly moral to me to lie on that one question if you want to donate There’s not really a way for them to fact check that I really never understood why people don’t just LIE “Heartbroken they couldn’t-“ JUST LIE ON THE FORM I’m an openly queer woman in Italy and I’ve never lied on my form but also my form doesn’t even ask the gender of my partner All the questions are phrased “have you had any heterosexual or homosexual intercourse in the past six months?” “have you changed partner in the past six months?” They are willingly phrased to work for all people because there’s literally no scientific reason as to why straight blood would be safer than gay bloodIt’s just a formality Honestly you could write you just had an orgy and as long as you claim you’ve practiced safe sex they’ll give you the green card to donate At most they mark your sack for a more thorough venereal diseases screening in case you couldn’t affirm for sure that you’re 100% cleanThe whole “but after the AIDS scare” discourse is bullcrap They give AIDS informative flyers to all donors once a year and they screen for HIV all the sacks Whenever you donate you get the analysis results back and if you check straight or gay there’s always the results for the HIV test Because medicine knows that straights and gays are all equally likely to be affected it’s how it isIf you’re gay you can donate If you’re trans the most that can happen is that your doctor allows you two yearly donations roughly six months apart if you are having your period otherwise you’re allowed three yearly donations roughly four months apart That’s itIf the forms are like those provided in Italy you won’t have even have to lie If you live in some dumbass country that thinks you cannot donate if you’re queer though yeah just fucking lie about it because there is no valid reason that says you cannot give bloodIt’s an whole different matter if we’re talking about restrictions based on where you were at X dateThese questions are common worldwide because they refer to viruses and infections that cannot be screened This is not made because the Red Cross is mean and cruel and whatever the fuck it’s because they cannot be sure your blood is not contaminated and since the blood is going to someone who it stands to reason is already compromised on their own they cannot fight their own battle and add more That’s why you cannot donate My uncle died because he was fighting leukemia and was injected a transfusion of infected blood DO NOT LIE ON THE FORM ABOUT ILLNESSES YOU HAD OR PLACES YOU’VE BEEN TO YOUR WISH TO DONATE IS WORTH JACK SHIT IF YOU CONTAMINATE SOMEONE BECAUSE YOU WEREN’T HONEST Meme
