Male Blood Donor Turned Away For Not Answering If He Was Pregnant Or Not.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It seems that Leslie has reached the ripe old age of 60yrs+ and is not cognisant of the 'fact' that men can now get pregnant. Maybe BTS staff should have set up an indoctrination/education session explaining about men getting pregnant.  

 

The Telegraph seems to have made a bit of a faux pas in using the banned word 'women' in the article:

Quote

Pregnant women or those with a baby which is not yet six months old are not allowed to give blood.

Don't they know it's 'pregnant people' for goodness sake?   Shame on them.

again ill ask what was stopping him ticking no?

Even by ticking no you're playing along, normalizing gender fluidity/neutrality, accepting it as a concept and accepting the idea that a man can be pregnant.

You aren’t.

 

You are just telling the Blood Transfusion service that you aren’t pregnant.

 

By flouncing about it, you would be telling the world something else about your character.

And denying someone blood that could save their life. By all means disagree with it but not to the point of denying blood donation

Pedantic loser best describes a bloke who doesn't answer the question.

Another compelling argument.

 

the outcome was there’s less blood in the bank,

 

the bloke was doing it voluntarily “I’d like to give you my blood for others but I don’t want to answer if I’m pregnant or not cos I’m obviously not (his choice might be a div) “

 

Outcome - less blood in the bank.

This is appalling.  Womb-carriers everywhere should unite with their ambulatory testicular unit allies and condemn such an insulting lack of progressive inclusivity.

Loss of a pint of blood or the loss of someone's job if they're daft enough to carry out that procedure without getting an answer to that question.  Matters not one tiny jot whether you think that question is clunky and clumsy, or what you think of the bloke's actions.

I've had this question on a form, I'm taking part in a 4 year medical study and had to have bloods and a MRI scan earlier this year at no point did it enter my head to have a strop and behave like a Pratt or think about running off to the local rag.

 

 i just ticked no and appreciated all the efforts of the several staff involved in carrying out the study and hope my efforts as a medical Guinea pig help in a small way, or should I have just wasted their  time and efforts?

 

such a dilemma not, the world isn't binary or black or white, so tick the box most appropriate it's pretty simple unless you're a total dick.

Indeed, the sensible approach, if you find it silly as least you can laugh about it after.

because he's a silver haired 66 yr old bloke without a womb.

 

The only nonsense is that someone decided he can't give blood because he didn't tick a divisive tick box.
