When a Spanish privateer attacks the plantation town, Blood seizes his chance, and with the help of his fellow slaves, pulls off a daring heist of the pirates’ ship. Based on a true story, Captain Blood is an immensely satisfying high-seas adventure for the ages.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

A sprawling epic of family, faith, power and oil, THERE WILL BE BLOOD is set on the incendiary frontier of California’s turn-of-the-century petroleum boom. The story chronicles the life and times of one Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis), who transforms himself from a down-and-out silver miner raising a son on his own into a self-made oil tycoon. When Plainview gets a mysterious tip-off that there’s a little town out West where an ocean of oil is oozing out of the ground, he heads with his son, H.W. (Dillon Freasier), to take their chances in dust-worn Little Boston. In this hardscrabble town, where the main excitement centers around the holy roller church of charismatic preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano), Plainview and H.W. make their lucky strike. But even as the well raises all of their fortunes, nothing will remain the same as conflicts escalate and every human value – love, hope, community, belief, ambition and even the bond between father and son – is imperiled by corruption, deception and the flow of oil.

WASHINGTON—As the hall’s lights flickered and the floor trembled for minutes on end, sources confirmed that great torrents of blood ran down the walls of the House of Representatives Monday as the chamber itself selected a new speaker. According to reports, the blood flooded the chamber’s upper gallery and then spilled over onto the speaker’s rostrum, at which point the name “Peter Roskam,” intoned in an unholy growl that seemed to rise from the very depths of damnation, could be heard reverberating throughout the Capitol. Witnesses told reporters that after hearing his name called, the Illinois Republican and chairman of the House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight was visibly shaking as he walked alone to the front of the chamber and seated himself in the blood-drenched speaker’s chair.

Hannah craves excitement, but all local adventures dried up long ago, when her parents unpacked their wagon on the Michigan frontier. Then war breaks out and her father and brother leave to fight the Confederacy. Hannah is left at home chafing under the boredom of never-ending chores–until unscrupulous speculators set their sights on the unmanned farm. The one place she longs to leave suddenly becomes the one place she'll risk everything to save. The Divided Decade Collection includes three stand alone stories that view the American Civil War through three different lenses. All are set within Michigan. The Candle Star features the Underground Railroad. Blood of Pioneers illustrates the trials faced on the rural homefront after the menfolk leave for war. And Beneath the Slashings is set within a Northern lumber camp filled with returning soldiers. The books can be read out of order or read alone, depending on the theme that most interests the reader (or most closely relates to a classroom curriculum). All three have been highly acclaimed by teachers and home schoolers. Each has lesson plans and additional resources available.

Argentina Lifts Ban On Gay Men Donating Blood

Argentina lifted its ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men earlier this week, following a more than decade-long campaign by LGBT advocacy groups pushing for blood donation equality in the country.

At a signing ceremony Wednesday, Health Minister Daniel Gollán said the policy change was “scientifically and technically accurate,” and based on “a medical approach that replaces that old concept of ‘risk groups.’”

Argentina can now “move toward a national blood system that is safe, caring and inclusive,” he said in a Tuesday statement, per Agence France-Presse.

The country joins a growing minority of nations that has abolished similar blood bans. In countries such as Chile, Mexico, Spain and Italy, blood donors are accessed on individual risk rather than sexual orientation.

LGBT rights groups have applauded Argentina’s decision. According to AFP, activists have been urging the government to lift the ban for 15 years. 

“It is a great joy to be able to take this step toward equality and non-discrimination in one of the last realms that explicitly excluded us from the full enjoyment of our rights,” Esteban Paulon, president of the Argentine Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgender, said in a statement.

Blood donation bans against men who have had sex with men (MSM) are said to exist in about 50 countries, including the United States. Such bans came into prominence at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic amid fear — and a lack of understanding — about the virus. As HIV testing has become increasingly accurate and innovative, activists have criticized the exclusion as being both ethically and scientifically unjustifiable.

Several countries, including the U.S., France, Germany and Belgium, have begun talks about possibly revising their policies.  

Earlier this year, the Food and Drug Administration proposed lifting the ban in the U.S. – at least partially. Under revised FDA guidelines, gay and bisexual men in America would be allowed to donate blood, but only if they’ve abstained from sex for a year. 

Blood donation equality advocates lauded the FDA announcement. However, many argued that the change does not go far enough.

David Stacy, government affairs director at the Human Rights Campaign, said the proposal was “a step in the right direction,” but added that it “falls far short of a fully acceptable solution because it continues to stigmatize gay and bisexual men.”

The American Red Cross, the American Association of Blood Banks and the American Medical Association are among the organizations that have called for the abolishment of the blood ban in the U.S. 

In 2013, 86 members of Congress wrote to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to press the agency to reevaluate the outdated policty. 

“We have seen vast advances in blood screening technology, blood donation policy changes in other countries allowing MSM to donate, and opposition from our nation’s blood banks who have called the current ban ‘medically and scientifically unwarranted.’’ the letter said. “Our current policies turn away healthy, willing donors, even when we face serious blood shortages.” 

In the wake of Argentina’s policy shift, several netizens have taken to Twitter to express the hope that their home countries will sit up and take notice.  

Jared Polis (D-Colo.) was one of those who weighed in on the decision, tweeting to the FDA: “Hope you’re watching.” 

The U.K. and Canada both have restrictions on blood donations by gay and bisexual men. In the U.K., men have to wait at least a year after having sex with another man before giving blood. In Canada, the wait is five years

Trump: Megyn Kelly Had ‘Blood Coming Out Of Her … Wherever’

Donald Trump has taken his spat with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, who asked him tough questions during the first GOP presidential debate, to a whole new level.

“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her — wherever,” the GOP frontrunner told CNN’s Don Lemon Friday night, referring to his back-and-forth with Kelly, a moderator of Thursday’s debate.

Trump unleashed his blood comment after Lemon asked, “What is it with you and Megyn Kelly?”

Trump, who called in to CNN, labelled Kelly a “lightweight” and unprofessional, telling Lemon, “I can’t believe you’re not beating [Megyn Kelly] in the ratings. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

Trump pronounced himself the victor of the debate, citing a poll by the Drudge Report and articles headlining his name on the front pages of The New York Times and The Washington Post. “What’s better than Drudge?” he asked.

Kelly went toe-to-toe with the brash candidate during Thursday’s main event, challenging Trump on his statements about women and his political creed. “You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,'” Kelly charged. 

Trump claimed “only Rosie O’Donnell,” had been the target of his words, and said people were too politically correct these days.

Kelly kept the heat on, which Trump later called “unfair.”

“I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably maybe not be based on the way you have treated me,” he said during the debate.

In a series of late-night tweets following the debate, Trump went after Kelly again, promoting a message that called  her a “bimbo,” and saying she was the biggest loser in the debate.

Correction: This article has been updated to reflect that Trump retweeted another user that called Kelly a “bimbo,” and had not apparently created the tweet himself.

News in Brief: Red Cross Installs Blood Drop-Off Bins For Donors’ Convenience

WASHINGTON—Expressing their hope that the new initiative would encourage more people to give, American Red Cross officials announced Friday that they had begun installing blood drop-off bins for donors’ convenience. “We realize that many people’s schedules prevent them from being able to visit their local Red Cross during normal business hours, so we’re introducing our new PlasmaGo donation bins, in which anyone can leave a few pints of blood any time they’re out and about,” said American Red Cross president Gail McGovern, adding that the 142-cubic-foot containers, which will soon be placed outside every Red Cross location in the country as well as in parking lots and street corners in major cities, will be available 24 hours a day for those who want to squeeze in a donation on the way to work or drop off some blood while running errands on the weekend. “All you …

It’s Time for Blood Donation Equality, Too

For several decades, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has refused to accept any blood donations whatsoever from “men who have sex with men (MSM)” – in other words, gay and bisexual men. Amidst the growing criticism of this ethically and scientifically unjustifiable ban, the FDA recently released a proposal to modify it. Yet this proposal, which would allow only celibate MSM to donate blood, is essentially just as bad as the original policy.

Fortunately, the same public activism that drove the marriage equality movement can move us towards blood donation equality as well. Proponents of LGBT rights can advance this cause, for example, by submitting a public comment on the FDA’s proposal by July 14.

The FDA has received 189 comments as of this writing; let’s shoot for at least 500. You can submit your comment here. My comment, which you are free to copy or modify as you see fit, is below:

I am writing to express concern about the proposed revision to your blood donor deferral criteria for gay and bisexual men (MSM). Our knowledge of HIV transmission and the experience of other countries in adopting safe, reliable, and nondiscriminatory donor eligibility criteria indicate that a one-year deferral, while marginally better than the lifetime deferral currently in place, would continue to stigmatize gay men without improving the safety of the blood supply.

While the prevalence of HIV is higher among MSM than among the general population, an individual’s risk of contracting HIV from sexual contact depends both on the probability that a sexual partner has HIV and the probability that HIV will be transmitted through a given type of sexual contact. As a result, many individuals who engage in unprotected heterosexual intercourse with multiple partners have a greater risk of contracting HIV than gay or bisexual men who use protection, especially if those gay or bisexual men are in committed relationships.

In fact, the BloodDROPS study you commissioned found rates of HIV prevalence among MSM blood donors lower than rates of HIV prevalence seen in the general population. These results suggest that MSM who engage in riskier sexual behaviors already abstain from donation, and that they would continue to do so if provided with a more appropriately-constructed questionnaire.

I strongly urge you to strike items IX and X from your recommendations for an updated donor history questionnaire. I also urge you to strike the footnote that puts “anal, oral, or vaginal sex, regardless of whether or not a condom or other protection is used,” into the same category. Those items could be replaced with the following recommendations for deferral in the DHQ:

1. A history in the past twelve months of anal sex with multiple partners or of unprotected anal sex,

2. A history in the past twelve months of unprotected vaginal sex with multiple partners.

Making this change would not require new resources. It would preserve blood safety, end the FDA’s discrimination against gay and bisexual men, and improve the educational value of donor education material. And it would also bring the US policy in line with policies in place in Mexico, Spain, and Italy. A recent study of Italy’s policy, instituted in 2001, found that the country maintained the integrity of its blood supply after it discarded its ban on MSM in favor of unprejudiced deferral criteria.

I believe ending deferral based on sexual orientation entirely is the only way to simultaneously avoid discrimination, preserve the safety of the blood supply, and maintain the FDA’s credibility. Thank you very much in advance for considering my proposed revision.

Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she's also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon's Most Wanted List. And no one wants her more than Keegan's father. Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he'll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics–the far deadlier, uncontrollable half–when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he'll never be able to resist.

How Taylor Swift Went from “Tim McGraw” to “Bad Blood”

taylor-swift-singles

For Taylor Swift fans, today is kind of a big deal: On June 19 nine years ago, the now 25-year-old singer released her first single, “Tim McGraw.” Swift was just sixteen when the song came out and it would quickly go on to become a massive success. A year later, she even caught the attention of the titular country star when she was asked to open for him on his nationwide tour with Faith Hill.

Just shy of the ten-year mark of her music career, she’s won countless awards, transcended genres, and even saved a few lives. The normally effusive Swift marked the occasion with a pretty straightforward tweet:

Let’s take a look back at her most notable singles over the past nine years and see her spectacular evolution as an artist and entertainer. Here’s how Taylor Swift went from country princess to “Bad Blood” diva.

1. “Tim McGraw”

Taylor’s first single is an absolute country classic. It’s a song about a lovelorn girl and her favorite songs—a motif that will follow Swift through her career.

2. “Teardrops On My Guitar”

Although “Tim McGraw” was a modest hit, her next single brought her to the national stage. “Teardrops On My Guitar” was a huge single on country and pop radio and catapulted her into a star. The video is quintessential early Swift, blonde curls and all

3. “Love Story”

“Love Story” was the first single from Swift’s second studio album, Fearless. It went eight times platinum and its music video has been watched more than 230 million times. It’s an epic song—those violins!—about true love. What’s not to like?

4. “You Belong With Me”

This song is Swift’s signature underdog song. It was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2010 and went multi-platinum in the U.S. The song’s video, which shows Swift as the cheer captain, as well as the lonely girl on the bleachers, is iconic and has spawned countless imitators.

5. “Mean”

Taylor picks up the banjo on this song, which takes aim at her toughest critics. It’s a message that has been a huge part of the second half of her career—not listening to any haters. This is Taylor at her most aspirational, while still staying true to her country roots.

6. “Safe & Sound”

This collaboration with the musical duo The Civil Wars landed on the soundtrack for the first Hunger Games movie, and it’s one of Swift’s darkest singles but is still very notable in its own right. It was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and won a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media (Swift’s seventh Grammy Award to date).

7. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”

Taylor showed her full pop side with the release of Red in 2012. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was her first number-one single and it’s easy to see why. With an infectious chorus, the single-girl anthem just begs to be sung along to whenever possible.

8. “Shake It Off”

T-Swift’s first single from last year’s 1989 was an instant smash, debuting at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained for two weeks. If you’ve left your house in the past year, you’ve heard this song at least ten times.

9. “Bad Blood” (ft. Kendrick Lamar)

Taylor’s latest single, which recently hit number one, may end up becoming her first-ever song of the summer. The video for the song, which stars a bunch of her friends like Selena Gomez, Zendaya, and Lena Dunham, set a record for Vevo’s most-watched video in a single day, with 20.1 million views.

‘Blood Mirror’ Art Installation Draws Attention To FDA Gay Blood Ban

One artist is making a bold statement about the anti-gay stigma still prevalent in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) policy regarding blood donation.

Jordan Eagles assembled a group of nine queer men with a diverse array of stories to take part in his project “Blood Mirror.” Eagles used the blood these men donated to construct an art installation that sends a powerful message about the lives that could have been saved if the FDA’s policy on blood donation from men who have sex with men (MSM) were different.

A press release sent to The Huffington Post notes:

The men who donated their blood to this project include: An 88-year-old openly gay priest; A Nigerian gay rights activist on political asylum in the U.S.; A Co-Founder of Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC); The CEO of GMHC; An identical gay twin whose straight brother is eligible to donate; A captain in the Army who served two terms in Iraq and was discharged under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (reinstated to service in 2014); A married transgender male couple, and; A bisexual father of two. Dr. Howard Grossman, former director of the American Academy of HIV Medicine, was the medical supervisor on the project, as well as a blood donor. Each man is currently ineligible to donate blood under the FDA’s current policy—but since they cannot donate their blood to save lives, they’ve chosen to donate their blood for art.

Last year the FDA proposed altering its full ban on blood donation from MSM individuals to one that only requires men to have not engaged in sex with other men for 12 months prior to their donation. This change is slated to go into effect in July 2015, but still angers many who say that the entire ban should be lifted.

Activist and filmmaker Leo Herrera documented the story behind “Blood Mirror” in conjunction with World Blood Donor Day on June 14.

“I wanted to create a sculpture that would become a time capsule, documenting this moment in time, while showing that this blood could have been used to save lives,” Eagles said in a statement sent to The Huffington Post. “This discriminatory policy is part of our gay history and part of our nation’s history, and the sculpture asks us to reflect on discrimination in our country, as well as the homophobia that exists around the world. For me, the sculpture is a work in progress. It will never be finished until the FDA’s blood donation policy is fair for all people.”

Check out “Blood Mirror” in the video above.

“Blood Mirror” will be on view at American University Museum at The Katzen Arts Center, Washington, D.C. from September 12th to October 18, 2015, with works created in collaboration with Leo Herrera, The Carry Nation, and Jonny Cota of SKINGRAFT.

Rap Fans Go For Blood After Troy Ave Flops With 30 Copies Sold [Photos]

Troy Ave is a restless independent rapper with his goals clearly outlined. Although the hustle is well-respected, how well does it, on top a robust social media presence (151K on Instagram, 63.5K on Twitter) translate into a lucrative career?

Well Complex got ahold of the Nielson Soundscan numbers following the release of his new album, Major Without a Deal, and to bluntly answer the question: It doesn’t.

The final tally reveals that Troy Ave only sold 4,373 copies of the album with a paltry 30 of those units being in physical format. The album has a guest-heavy roster including 50 Cent, Ty Dolla $ ign, A$ AP Ferg, Fabolous and more but that still wasn’t enough to work in Harry Powder’s favor.

Upon receiving the news, fans of the culture (albeit not of Troy Ave’s) pulled out the slander stick and beat him to oblivion with it. The Brooklyn rapper perceivably addressed his name trending in the wrong direction via his Instagram but all that did was fan the flames.

The album is available for stream and on iTunes if you need to see what the fuss was about.

Everybody else, take a look at the Troy Ave crucifixion that has taken place today, June 11.

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


In a world where vampires are real, blood is a financial asset and intimacy mixed with blood commands the highest price. Myra Danson is in desperate need of cash for her ailing mother and when she has the opportunity to join the shadow world of blood courtesans, she leaps before she looks. Soon she’s sharing a bed with the handsome Kristos Anastos, but then bullets start to fly and she finds herself running for her life. Kristos assumes the attack stems from his enemies hoping to destroy him, but it quickly becomes clear that Myra is the real target. Worse, she’s falling in love with Kristos, but is the sexy vampire friend or foe? Blood is money and Myra’s may be worth the most of all. A past she never knew existed has come to claim her and she’ll be lucky if she only ends up dead. A romance novella of 21,000 words–much longer than a short story, but shorter than a novel.

The FDA Responds to Criticism of ‘Loosening’ Ban on Blood Donations From Gay and Bi Men

2014-12-31-FDA.jpg

On Dec. 30 I organized a protest outside the FDA field office in Philadelphia to raise awareness about their ongoing ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men. The ban has been in place since 1983 and excludes men who have had sex with men since 1977 from donating blood. The ban also applies to anyone who has had sex with a man who has had sex with a man since 1977.

Recently, the FDA announced that it will “loosen” the ban (after reaffirming it only a few weeks prior). However, the “loosened” restrictions will have little effect, as they require men who have sex with men to remain celibate for one year prior to donating. This one-year waiting period is puzzling, considering that HIV is now detectable within about two weeks of infection.

During the protest, several reporters asked why we were protesting if the ban was being “loosened.” The simple answer to that question is that the ban still prevents most men who have sex with men from giving blood due to the year-long celibacy requirement. When it comes to heterosexuals, a donor’s risk level for HIV is determined on a case-by-case basis. For example, a heterosexual person engaging in sex with an intravenous drug user would be unable to donate.

However, all men who have sex with men are simply lumped into one group and automatically deemed “high-risk” without being asked questions about their behavior to determine risk level. So a single heterosexual person engaging in frequent casual sex would be able to donate, yet a monogamous gay couple who have been together for 25 years would not be able to do so, even though their individual risk level for HIV is clearly lower.

The FDA has said very little about their decision to “loosen” the ban, so I was absolutely shocked that the FDA actually gave Philadelphia’s WHYY News a statement regarding our protest! According to WHYY:

In a statement, the FDA said it had considered individual self-assessments, but did not find them reliable.

“Assessment of high-risk sexual behaviors would be highly burdensome on blood donation establishments and potentially offensive to donors,” the agency wrote.

The FDA also said there is not yet enough evidence to reduce the waiting period to less than one year.

The FDA’s response is utterly puzzling on several fronts. How can they claim that individual self-assessments are unreliable and burdensome when they already use them to determine risk levels for heterosexual donors? Are they saying that gay people will lie? Who’s offended? Also, anyone who has basic knowledge about HIV testing knows that the claim that there is not enough evidence to reduce the waiting period to less than a year is a blatant, outright lie!

It seems to me that this is all the more reason to continue pushing the FDA to extinguish the ban entirely. If men who have sex with men must be celibate for a year before donating, then everyone else should be held to that standard too. If they can determine risk level for heterosexuals on a case-by-case basis, then they should do it for men who have sex with men as well.

Finally, the ban is a joke anyway, because anyone can lie on the questionnaire. It’s time that the FDA just lifted the ban completely and put an end to this blatant discrimination against men who have sex with men. Assess the risk, test the blood, and treat everyone the same. It’s really that simple. There are plenty of men who have sex with men who are willing to donate, and I am one of them, but I refuse to have to lie in order to do so.

Colonel Ridge Zirkander isn’t the model of military professionalism—he has a tendency to say exactly what’s on his mind, and his record has enough demerits to wallpaper the hull of an airship—but as the best fighter pilot in the Iskandian army, he’s used to a little leniency from his superiors. Until he punches the wrong diplomat in the nose and finds himself issued new orders: take command of a remote prison mine in the inhospitable Ice Blades Mountains. Ridge has never been in charge of anything larger than a flier squadron—what’s he supposed to do with a frozen fortress full of murderers and rapists? Not to mention the strange woman who shows up right before he arrives… Sardelle Terushan wakes from three hundred years in a mage stasis shelter, only to realize that she is the last of the Referatu, the sorcerers who once helped protect Iskandia from conquerors. Their subterranean mountain community was blown up in a treacherous sneak attack by soldiers who feared their power. Everyone Sardelle ever knew is dead, and the sentient soulblade she has been bonded to since her youth is buried in the core of the mountain. Further, what remains of her home has been infested by bloodthirsty miners commanded by the descendants of the very soldiers who destroyed her people. Sardelle needs help to reach her soulblade—her only link to her past and her last friend in the world. Her only hope is to pretend she’s one of the prisoners while trying to gain the commander’s trust. But lying isn’t her specialty, especially when the world has changed so much in the intervening centuries, and if Colonel Zirkander figures out who she truly is, he’ll be duty-bound to sentence her to the only acceptable punishment for sorcerers: death.

FDA Continues Blood Libel of Gay Men

The new FDA rules on blood donations by gay men continue to perpetuate falsehoods. Euronews may call it “a major victory for gay civil rights” but it is NO such thing. Previously, any gay man who ever had sex with another man, no matter how “safe” the sex, was deemed too risky to donate blood. Now they are banned only if they had sex within the last year. These regulations were put into place during the height of the HIV/AIDS hysteria and represent precisely the kind of legislative overkill that happens when idiots pass rules or laws while panicking about something. Panics are the worst time to legislate, because people always get facts wrong.

Originally, the media and bureaucrats tried to label this disease “Gay Related Immune Deficiency Syndrome” or GRIDS but it soon became apparent that it wasn’t “gay-related” at all. Certainly, they noticed very quickly that the disease had spread within the Haitian community in the United States and among IV drug users-predominantly straight groups. Then it became apparent, when you broaden the picture to include the rest of the world, that gays are a minority of those with HIV.

Regulations were written with scant actual knowledge when people were fearful and certain groups were doing their level best to stoke the flames of fear and misinformation.

This is a disease with certain means of transmission that don’t discriminate. Sex is a factor, gay or straight, it’s a factor, but consider how the Red Cross lists risks for HIV. They claim you are at risk of HIV if you “are a male who has had sexual contact with another male, even once, since 1977.” Of course, they will now change that to say “any time in the last year.” So, that hand job from 1978 is no longer a threat–but, it never was.

It is a fact that MORE people worldwide have contracted HIV through heterosexual intercourse than any other mode of transmission, but it is not listed as a risk, while all gay sex, including absolutely safe practices, are deemed “unsafe.”

That isn’t science! That isn’t medicine! That’s panic politics at its worst.

Another major factor in this country has been the spread of HIV though sharing needles for IV drug use. Of course, one reason needles are shared is because they may be difficult to obtain, thanks to that other paragon of panic politics: The War on Drugs. Bureaucrats and politicians aren’t talking about how their own hyperbolic hysteria contributed to the spread of HIV.

The reason is simple: Policies passed in panic, no matter how counterproductive or destructive, are sacred and never repealed. To undo the panic legislation is to admit politicians use fear to secure office for themselves and cater to panics. A panic, no matter how absurd, is just another political opportunity, one that can be used to further ones career. Politicians don’t like to admit that if you scare the shit out of the public, you can pass anything you want.

So they pass bad legislation or regulations, which fester in the body politic for generations to come. Even after the fear has abated, even after the hysteria is dead and forgotten, or widely disputed, laws and regulations maliciously linger on for generations to come. The political elite never admits errors. Better thousands or millions suffer than the illusion of political competency is exposed as a fraud.

The “Satanic Panics” of the 80s created laws on sex offenders that are doing far more harm than good. That grossly exaggerated panic regarding child abductions now has parents being threatened with arrest for allowing children to play in a public park without an adult to guard them from imaginary monsters. The HIV panic created regulations on blood donations do more harm than good. At best, politicians will tinker around the edges, but the detrimental effect of fear politics are still with us–and no doubt will be for some time to come.

For more than four decades, science has shown these regulations to be unwarranted and counterproductive, but even now the most the political process is willing to do is make them only slightly less harmful. This should be a warning to those who, in a moment of crisis or fear, yell, “There ought to be a law.” If anything, legislation during crisis should be banned. It’s bound to be ill considered, badly drafted, and often more destructive than the problem it was meant to solve–a problem that is often grossly exaggerated to begin with.

Why Even A 12-Month Ban On Blood Donations From Gay Men Makes No Sense

The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday ended the lifetime ban on blood donations from men who have sex with men.

But the agency said it would continue to bar donations by men who have had a sexual encounter with another man in the previous year, disappointing prominent gay rights groups and HIV/AIDS researchers, who called the yearlong waiting period medically unnecessary and unscientific. The FDA said the change “will better align the deferral period with that of other men and women at increased risk for HIV infection.”

“The one-year deferral notion constitutes symbolic progress, but is not any more warranted than a lifetime ban,” wrote Dr. Eli Adashi, professor of medical science at Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School, in an email to HuffPost.

The 31-year-old ban on donations from gay and bisexual men had its roots in the AIDS fear that was pervasive when the disease first appeared in the nation’s blood supply. Since then, HIV testing has gotten faster and more accurate. Additionally, testing of donated blood for HIV and other diseases is routine.

Over the years, pressure mounted for the FDA to change the ban. The American Medical Association recommended that gay and bisexual men be evaluated individually, and that risk be assessed through behavior, not sexual orientation.

“The lifetime ban on blood donation for men who have sex with men is discriminatory and not based on sound science,” said Dr. William Kobler, an AMA spokesman.

Members of Congress spoke out against the ban.

Gay rights groups also advocated that the FDA drop the gay blood ban, and replace it with screening questions that address specific risky sexual behaviors regardless of sexual orientation or gender.

Aspects of such a system have been in place in Italy since 2001. There, potential blood donors are assessed individually with questionnaires and face-to-face interviews with practitioners.

Adashi co-authored an op-ed in the July issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association that argued a 12-month deferral on donations from gay men is “equally arbitrary” to a lifelong ban.

“Sexual orientation is not a disqualifier; instead, sexual orientation is one component of individualized risk assessment,” Adashi wrote. Research suggests that Italy’s new policy hasn’t led to a disproportionate increase in HIV-positive blood donations from gay men.

The FDA shift still leaves a large swath of gay men — those who only have sex with HIV-negative partners or practice safe sex with HIV-positive partners — unable to donate blood. At the same time, people who may be at risk for HIV are not barred from donating.

Beyond the discriminatory nature of the ban on donations, there is a real need for more blood.

The Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, which studies LGBT issues, has calculated the number of men who would likely donate, and the pints of blood that would become available, under three scenarios: completely lifting the ban, a 12-month deferral, and a five-year deferral.

As you can see, a 12-month deferral excludes thousands of potential donations from the nation’s blood supply.

The risk of getting HIV from a blood transfusion is incredibly low. According to the FDA, one in 2 million cases are acquired through transfusions.

Why Won’t the FDA Let Me Donate Blood?

I have type O-negative blood; I am what’s called a “universal donor.” My blood is the most sought-after because no matter what type of blood you have, you can receive O-negative blood. For that reason, in the event of an emergency, first responders bring O-negative blood to the scene.

I was in New York City on 9/11, and blood banks, which were inundated by people who wanted to donate, would only accept O-negative blood.

I am a happily married man; we’ve been together for seven years, and we are monogamous and happy. We live in a row house with a porch swing and a white fence; we volunteer in our communities; we both work in the public interest.

Our nation is facing a major blood shortage, “one of the worst [shortages] that the Red Cross has seen,” according to the Red Cross.

But a blood bank won’t take my blood, because they can’t. I am a gay man, and the FDA forbids it.

I tell this to my straight friends, and they can’t believe it, but it’s true. According to the FDA:

Having had a low number of partners is known to decrease the risk of HIV infection. However … [the FDA has been unable to] reliably identify a subset of MSM (e.g., based on monogamy or safe sexual practices) who do not still have a substantially increased rate of HIV infection compared to the general population or currently accepted blood donors.

You heard that right: Despite being in a seven-year monogamous relationship, I am still, somehow, at a higher risk of contracting HIV.

Recently, an FDA advisory panel considered walking back that prohibition by proposing a rule that would have allowed gay men to donate blood if they abstained from sex for one year. By their logic, if I stopped sleeping with my husband for 365 days, my risk for HIV would be magically reduced and I would be allowed me to donate blood.

The lack of logic, on its face, is mind-boggling, especially when you consider that both the American Red Cross and the American Medical Association have said that the ban is scientifically outdated and unnecessary.

But this is far more than just a policy relic that is caught in the slow churn of bureaucratic regulatory reform. No, this is of course another in a litany of double standards that the LGBT community faces.

Heterosexuals (regardless of their character) can serve in the military, but the LGBT community had to fight for our right to fight (and die) for our country. Heterosexuals (regardless of their character) can marry (and divorce) in all 50 states; the LGBT community has had to push — state by state, one by one — for our right to commit to the person we love. Heterosexuals (regardless of their character) can adopt; same-sex couples can jointly petition to adopt statewide in only 23 states and D.C.

On 9/11, after the towers fell to ash, I approached Second Avenue, headed toward the New York Blood Center. There were no cars on the streets, just thousands of people making a slow exodus north to their homes. The line to give blood was three blocks long.

Standing on the corner of 67th Street, I faced one of the most acute moral quandaries I’ve yet to confront: Do I lie about my identity to help my fellow brothers and sisters, or do I stay true to myself and know that the Red Cross would, by law, dispose of my blood?

* * *

The FDA recently rejected the Advisory Panel’s one-year-abstinence recommendation and elected to keep the permanent ban in place.

One of the doctors who voted for the ongoing ban clearly found the debate to be an irritant; she was quoted complaining that “[i]t sounds to me like we’re talking about policy and civil rights….”

Damn right. And no policy should force me to lie so I can give back.
