A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    Furthermore I know at least as many slutty chicks I'd be worried about getting HIV, HPV or worse from.

    Additionally, I have heard of far more false negative HSV cases than I have of HIV, and they already have mandatory testing of all donated blood samples for HIV antibodies, so gay men are no worse than other options, unless they are REALLY promiscuous and/or drug users and still probably don't top the sluttiest women, who under this policy are allowed to donate blood.

      It's not just HIV. Syphilis is also much more common in gay men than in heterosexuals (75% of all syphilis cases are gay men).

      Doctors work on statistics, not ideology. Let them do their job.

    How do you feel about having donated blood tested for diseases before it gets put into you? Anybody can have HIV.
