Response to a discussion about intersexuality on another website: I had never heard of the movie, XXY, and thank you for recommending it.  When I was a wee lad, in grade school, I avoided male-male play like it was only for real boys.  I could not be a real boy because I was uncoordinated, afraid of being hit by baseballs, unable to shoot goals in basketball, unable to pass or catch a football, and so forth.  Instead, I played Jax with the girls.  This may have played a role to bullying in middle school, and being called names in high school.  But I had only one sexual organ between my legs and it took me the better part of a half century to realize that there is no male and no female, no normative or average.  If there are 30 billion people on earth, there are 30 billion sexualities.  Want to bet that Pat Robertson and his ilk do things to or with themselves and/or others that you would not do, and you do things Pat would not do.  That does not make anything you do bad.  That doesn't make anything Pat does good.  There are no norms or averages in human sexuality.  Also, what is between your ears is just as valid if not more so as what is between your legs.  What is between your legs is really not what matters.  It's what's in your head.

No giving my blood for me for another whole year.  Damn my proclivities.  :-)

Yes, all blood is tested and yes, heteros are as likely to transmit HIV through a blood donation as anyone else, if they are infected. There is no rational or scientific rationale for the ban.  It is blatant discrimination based on fear.  It makes my blood boil - so to speak.

Before I came out, a local meetup group organised a blood drive/pizza event.

I'd have loved to go do something positive and social like that but didn't go in the end since I didn't need the hassle or the confrontation with my still closeted sexuality -  'why aren't you donating Richard?'

It's probably the first time in memory I can recall feeling directly discriminated against for my sexuality.  You can't give blood becuase you had sex with a man once (or indeed several times).

It was a very nasty feeling to know my blood was unwanted in-spite of not bearing any disease at all.

That's too bad.  I'm sure the person whose life your blood saved would not give a dam*.  I can't believe they turn away perfectly good blood donors for such a stupid reason.  Don't they screen all the blood anyway?  Being hetro doesn't make a person aids proof.
