College students still protest remnants of MSM blood donation ban
The Daily Tar Heel, in article by Katia Martinez, reports on a mild protest at the University of North Carolina (UNC) campus over the policy barring MSM from donating blood, link here.
Apparently that policy is still in force, despite an announcement by FDA in December 2014 to life the ban for MSM abstinent for at least a year and still HIV- by all tests. Vox Media had panned the idea, that the new policy worked only for gay men who don’t have sex (often elderly).
Another article, by Madison Flager, in the same UNC paper, talks about LGBT college students, and reports a bizarre finding from a UNC survey “only 51.4%” identified themselves as heterosexual, link here. If that were really true, population demographics really is in trouble.
