    @~Scott Roberts…
    ….”providing they reframe from ” I thought it was a typo the last two times you made this rather stupid mistake. This should read “providing they refrain from ” Buy yourself a bloody dictionary…

    Heterosexual people never get aids?

    1. Spanner1960 17 Apr 2013, 7:54pm

      Yes, but statistically it is considerably lower incidence in the UK.

    2. Only if they’re drug addicts or they receive dirty poofter blood.

      See also heterosexual people never have anal sex.

        Actually heteros have more anal sex than Gay people because the poor use it as a means of contraception especially in very poor “catholic” countries…

          Maybe in places such as Africa, but in the UK, a gay man is 111 times more likely to be HIV+ than a straight one.
          That’s not alarmist propaganda, just a simple fact.
          Until gay men can learn to be more responsible for their own sexual health, then I’m afraid nothing is going to change.

    I think the ban is understandable and since Aids is still a thing, and irresponsibility seems to be up….

    1. If they bring the law in line with the rest of the UK, only gay men who have abstained from sex for 1 year are allowed to donate, so I don’t see how “Aids is still a thing” in this case.

      You could say that people could just lie about the last time they had sex but you could just lie about being gay in the first place so that doesn’t really work.

  4. A “born again Christian”….The man is as ugly on the inside as he is on the outside.

    How about we ban ALL zelots and homophobic bigots from donating blood…

    Keep your plague riddle blood. people have blood transfusions to improve their chances, not to catch AIDS.In my opinion, Homodeviant males are 50 times more likely to have the AIDS plague than hetero normals.
    Mal homosexuals are also by far the most promiscuous community. It really is a no brainer. Why are the deviants so keen to force their blood on innocents?

    1. Spanner1960 19 Apr 2013, 4:07pm

      Your opinion is both irrelevant and incorrect.

      1. keith, moral instructor to immorals 19 Apr 2013, 4:27pm

        Northern Ireland says you are wrong. As I say, keep your gay plague blood!

        1. Troll … Surely?!
