At my school, kids who are at least 17 years old and 120 lbs - I'm both - can donate blood 3-4 times through out the school year when the Red Cross (I think?) comes and set up in the lobby. With this gay blood ban, how do you negotiate schools? I've never been asked if I was gay or had had sex with men (haven't!! - it sucks). I think people would have problems with nurses asking kids if they were gay - right in front of all their peers. Well, the details seem to elude everyone.
