"Who's Your Daddy?" "No idea. All I Know Is, He Said He's Straight"

"Who's Your Daddy?" "No idea. All I Know Is, He Said He's Straight"
In the name of preventing the accidental transmission of HIV, the FDA is recommending sperm banks should screen out gay donors. Gay rights groups are challenging the rule as bigoted and not based on science; they point out that HIV is increasingly transmitted via het sex, and that the HIV screening already in place is sufficient to keep the bank "accounts" safe.
Meanwhile, this could be both hard to swallow for the sperm banks, and a major blow for a core group of donors. The FDA defines "gay" as having engaged in homosexual activity in the preceding five years. If that includes either "fraternity initiation rites" or "that time at summer camp," tens of thousands of college students are gonna have to earn beer money somewhere else.

Wow, look at that. I guess gay-bashing isn't just for Republicans any more. Why can't we pick on people who deserve it? Focus people! There are still goddamn tree-huggin' hippies ,and worse, French people out there! Like gays don't have enough problems with the Queer Eye guys making them look bad.
P.s For any of the Republicans reading this and sputtering "I don't have a problem with gay people". News flash: You don't have a freaking party any more! Sorry, but it's true. Republican is now synonymous with the religious reich...errr...right. You might want to take a look at the Libertarians or take back control of your party. And no, I'm not a Libertarian. But I am thinking of switching. At least I won't have to hang around all the goddamn tree-huggin' hippies on the left.
