A blood center employee asked me that once in the 1990s. Unfortunately she caught herself before I could make a smart-ass reply.

Red Cross doesn't do the clown world stuff, thankfully. When you filled it out on a laptop the options were Yes, No, and I Am Male. With Rapid Pass, they skip questions that don't apply to you.

Here in Houston, you can select “I am a male” for that question, and if they change it to be inclusive, they’ll never get another drop from this 30-year quarterly donor.

Actually it is very possible to answer it. In fact it may be the easiest question he’s ever been asked.


Yes , it’s ridiculous that they ask this if a biological male. But if he really wanted to donate he could have just said no and moved on.

Seems like an odd hill to die on.

the morality of this world is nearly gone at this point and you’re suggesting that an obvious biological 61 year old male refusing to answer if he is pregnant so that he can donate blood is not a hill worth dying on.

this is exactly how we got here. we didn’t die on enough “silly hill(s)”

He should have circled “male” and drawn a line down to the question and say “figure it out”

He could have just drawn a huge cock and balls on the form. I like to do that on all forms I fill out.

Did you miss the part where the man had donated his blood consistently for 48 years? THEY turned him down over a question, he would have gladly gave his blood if they hadn't sent him away.


For 48 consecutive years that man went there and donated his blood like a good and noble citizen. Then HE was turned away for not participating in gender ideology.


Which party has the power to decide what's on the forms? Which party decides who gives blood? It's not the 66 year old man. The hospital has a responsibility to accommodate non-gender ideology conforming science followers to save lives. The fault lies squarely on the people administering the service.

so you quote a comment saying this 66 year old dude is being dramatic for refusing to answer if he’s pregnant and the commenter proceeds to act dramatic about the potential donor blood loss.

then you put your own dramatic flair of a comment, lacking all context, as a cherry on top.
