My work is doing a blood drive today, something they’ve done one other time since I’ve worked here in the past year. Last time they did the drive, I didn’t bother signing up or even asking if I could try and donate because I knew the answer would be no. This time I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. Maybe the rules have changed. Maybe things aren’t as strict as they were before. Maybe the medical world has removed its head from its ass. Maybe? And yet…no. Everything is as it was before, nothing has changed. Because I am homosexual I am forbidden from giving blood.

I was very disappointed to wake up yesterday morning to find that Proposition 8 had passed in California the previous night. And not only that, but Arizona and Florida passed similar movements as well. Proposition 8 having been passed, now has amended the California state constitution to effectively ban same-sex marriage and define a marriage as only between a man and a woman. Though I don’t know the details of the similar constitutional bans that were passed in Arizona and Florida, they’re just as frustrating to think about. I just don’t see how people can be so hateful.
