Isn’t anyone else shocked about the fact that male homosexual people aren’t allowed to donate? Why only male people? And why does it depend on their love?

Yeah well, Newman's not happy, he booted me out of his freezer. Look, I've got to take my blood back to the bank

I own 50 giant leeches.. I don't need to donate my blood..

The gay blood ban has changed in a lot of countries. In the US, men who have sex with men are banned only if they have had gay sex in the last year. The lifetime ban no longer applies
Es3iya
You can donate blood in some countries now if you're gay, but if you had a sex with a man (even if that's your monogamous partner/husband/etc.) then you can't donate for 12 months anymore. Kind of ridiculous, but we're getting there slowly.
