Must... Dance... With... Ellen...

“Ellen DeGeneres” celebrates her lesbianism and “marriage” in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.

Now, his son Willie Robertson has spoken out about the fiasco to Larry King. Willie told King that he doesn’t agree with some of his father’s hateful words: “We love everybody… In this business, there are a lot of people who are gay.” Still, Willie says he is still undecided as to whether homosexuality is a choice.

FDA Considers Lifting Antiquated Ban On Blood Donations From Gay Men

In 1983, the FDA put a policy in place that forbids any man who has had sex with another man since 1977 from donating blood. The policy, which still stands today, was implemented at the height of the AIDS epidemic. The LGBT community was devastated by the virus, and gay men were at a higher statistical risk of contracting it despite the fact that any person, no matter their orientation or gender, could become infected. There were no reliable methods for screening blood donations for what was then often called “gay-related immune deficiency” (ugh), so the FDA opted to prevent gay men from contributing to the national blood supply altogether. People were dying left and right with no solution in sight, and the decision seemingly came from a panicked need to take any kind of preventative action within health officials’ realm of control. Still, at the time, it was prejudiced and hit the LGBT community with yet another socially acceptable form of discrimination. Today, this policy is downright egregious. Keep reading »
