    Rahman is a troll who pretends to be muslim in order to justify his moronic rants. He is a wind-up merchant.

    Do not encourage him.

    Do not respond to him and he might go away.

  2. This is hardly the lifing of the ban. It’s like what was proposed in the UK… they’ll only take gay blood if those gay men stop with the icky gay sex. Yeah, that’s an improvement

    So I, in a monogamous relationship, cannot give blood because I am assumed to be diseased. My heterosexual brother, having unprotected heterosexual sex with every female that will have him? Oh, he’s fine.

  3. Continued from PaulW…watch our government they will offer the same deal when it’s unrealistic to maintain. I thought there was a blood shortage but we are willing to cut a huge amount of people from being able to donate.

    It is good that Sweden will remove the very last piece of discrimination!!!!

    I wish my country Australia did these 3 things in 2009:

    * Allow gays and lesbians the right to marry their partner;
    * Allow gay men and bisexual men the right to donate blood; and
    * Allow gay men and lesbians the right to adopt children in NSW, QLD and VIC.

  5. And you’re going to enforce that restriction how? Good luck with that.
