Gay: The New Black

FDA set to ban gay men as sperm donors
NEW YORK - To the dismay of gay-rights activists, the Food and Drug Administration is about to implement new rules recommending that any man who has engaged in homosexual sex in the previous five years be barred from serving as an anonymous sperm donor.

The FDA has rejected calls to scrap the provision, insisting that gay men collectively pose a higher-than-average risk of carrying the AIDS virus. Critics accuse the FDA of stigmatizing all gay men rather than adopting a screening process that focuses on high-risk sexual behavior by any would-be donor, gay or straight.

“Under these rules, a heterosexual man who had unprotected sex with HIV-positive prostitutes would be OK as a donor one year later, but a gay man in a monogamous, safe-sex relationship is not OK unless he’s been celibate for five years,” said Leland Traiman, director of a clinic in Alameda, Calif.
Meanwhile in Britain
Traditionally, Fanshawe is right. The Tory record on gay issues has been poor. Not only did a Conservative government implement Section 28 - the law that prohibited the "promotion" of homosexuality in schools, but also fought efforts to repeal it.

Today's Conservatives, however, are making greater efforts at inclusiveness. In addition to Bole's candidacy, Conservatives are also running Nick Herbert in Arundel and Ashley Crossley in Falmouth and Camborne. In 2002, gay Tories were given "official" recognition as a special group affiliated with the party. And the issue of gays is completely absent from the election debate this year.

It's sad to see as the entire planet moves forward, a small minority of racists and bigots are effectively pullling America back to a time that never actually existed. Next time you vote Republican, remember, these our the people that will own you Rep./Senator/President:

The Dobson crowd may not be as crash to have their children preach their hate, but their message is not that different. They hate gays, they hate sex, they hate today's America. They preech in the name of god, though they really don't care what god says, they just use that as an excuse to further their insane world view.
