Dear Sir/Madam,


I am alarmed to learn that men who have sex with men are to be allowed to contribute to the UK's national blood supply.

As the testing regime of the Blood Transfusion Service is more than adequate, I have never been one of those bigotted individuals who fear transmission of diseases such as HIV or Hepatitis though this route. What concerns me is the way in which homosexuality is once again being normalised in our society without regard for the consequencies.

What if transfusion of "gay blood" spreads homosexuality? This could account for the increasing prevalence of same-sex attraction in an age where blood transfusions are a common occurence. I would hate to see people understandably refusing a life-saving transfusion for fear of contracting sexual perversion. Perhaps more research is called for?
