    I'd like to explain that it was never my intention to denounce Rainbow. I just wanted to provide an argument (based on my experience) that many people are opposed to the concept of Rainbow, and that the Church could be construed as condemning it. I'm aware that some of my posts suggest i am anti-gay, and that I believe the Church is homophobic. I do not believe this.

    I am sorry to anyone who may have been offended by my posts, and am deleting them as such.
    Kudos on that post. It can't have been easy to right. I've replied in more detail to you in PM, but I don't - for the record - believe you are homophobic, or bigoted, just... human. Being scared of something you don't understand is very human.

    Maybe you only know about the camp ones, as the others are still hiding?

    I know a few people who are gay but are still hiding from their school friends etc.

    Exactly. The percentage is from 5-10%. He may know 2 out of 100 gay guys due to flamboyance; but oblivious to the other 3-8.

    Actually, that's a skewered statistic. It was taken in the 80's and the majority of the subjects were promiscuous, sex addicts because during this time, most homosexuals were in the closet and therefore unable to be surveyed, much less wanted to be.

    Because of this, it appeared that 80% of the homosexual population had contracted an STD and that AIDS was rampant through the minority.

    These outdated statistics are still used today (in the U.S. at least). I gave blood last year, and afterwards they asked me a number of questions, one of which was "Have you ever had intimate relations with someone of the same sex?" After answering yes, they preceded to wash their hands and dispose of my donated blood.

    I dont know wether it's 'homophobia' per say... the uk use a 63% stat from 2007 to justify it (Men who have sex with men continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV and account for 63% of HIV diagnoses where the infection was likely to have been acquired in the UK.) (and not the outdated 80% as mentioned before)
    Taken from http://www.blood.co.uk/
    ------->

    The reasons for the current policy of permanently excluding men who have ever had sex with men from blood donation are as follows:

    •Blood safety starts with the selection of donors before they give blood. By excluding groups known to present a particularly high risk of blood-borne viruses, we are already reducing the risk of infected blood entering the blood supply.
    •Every blood donation is tested for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), syphilis and human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV). However, despite improvements in blood screening tests, a small number of infected donations may be missed because of the 'window period' between getting the infection and the test showing a positive result.
    •While safer sex, through the use of condoms, does reduce the transmission of infections, it cannot eliminate the risk altogether. Men who have sex with men continue to be disproportionately affected by HIV and account for 63% of HIV diagnoses where the infection was likely to have been acquired in the UK.1 Epidemiological evidence in the UK also shows that there has been a significant increase in sexually-transmitted infections which can also be blood-borne, such as hepatitis B and syphilis, among men who have sex with men. Between 2002 and 2006, for example, there was a 117% increase in syphilis infections in men who have sex with men.2
    •Research shows that completely removing the current exclusion on blood donation from men who have sex with men would result in a fivefold increase in the risk of HIV-infected blood entering the blood supply. While changing deferral to one year from the last sexual contact would have a lesser effect, it would still increase this risk by 60%.3

    This isn't homophobia, it's common sense. Discrimination/differentiation is essential to society. If you know a group are far more likely to raise the risk of infected blood, regardless of what the group is (be it ethnic, racial, age, sex, blood type, alcoholics, drug users etc.) then it only makes sense to exclude them from providing blood. It is unfortunate that gay men still seem to contract certain diseases far more often than with heterosexual men but, since it is fact, it cannot be ignored. This is not homophobia but simple common sense. Unfortunately, common sense doesn't seem to be so common anymore.

    Looks like somebody trying to make the forum a vibrant wonderful place by making a filter that replaces h0m0 with celery.


    Huzzah. The forum is great again.

    So I guess now the forum filter assumes that being h0mosexual is wrong...

    Making this thread was totally worth the effort.

    Evidently not, but it would be nice* to have a competent crew that can avoid making mistakes every time they decide something needs changing with the forum.

    The filter implies that this discussion thread is against the rules. Would you agree with that?

    *Figure of speech, of course. It's this type of thing which provides the lulz from the UK forum now.
