Meh, I don't see why you'd be surprised by this point.

Yeah, I really didn't get that from USAF's post. He was agreeing with my post in a sarcastic fashion, I think.

I changed accounts.
[up] Yes. The rationale from the fundies will probably be something along those lines: that it's somehow "different" for homosexuals.

That's what I thought you meant.

Opposed example: Romanian regulations for blood donors (issued by Ministry of Public Health) state the conditions for a blood donor are: to be of legal age (over 18), to be in good health outside blood/circulatory system (ex. no pulmonary diseases), to have blood pressure in the normal range and that blood donation should not be a risk for the donor's life or health - that means pregnant women or women who had just given birth, people over 62 or below a body weight of 50kgs and people who had already donated in the last 60 days are banned.

Reason: any blood will be tested for HIV, hepatitis A/B/C and other germs just after donation and if contaminated should be discarded.

I also remember that one of the questions asks if you've ever taken money or drugs for sex, or had sex with somebody who has. I found it funny that they specifically say, "money or drugs" instead of "anything of value". I imagined somebody who could legitimately say, "Never money or drugs. But I do always put out if he pays for dinner, and I let him put it wherever he wants if we have lobster, " and not be disqualified.

But that's just my evil mind.
What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly.
[up]i don't imagine many hookers do though.

also, back to the OP, it's believed that HIV was introduced in north america through the gay community and has a statistically higher prevalence among gay males than the overall population. sucks but it's true. a gay guy might have MORE reason to wear a condom than a straight guy, but they usually don't because there's no risk of pregnancy...

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
