News – Feministing’s Sunday Reader, Feminism +Maternal Desire, and Queer Blood Bank Discrimination

Standard

Feministing recently reinstated their Sunday reader. Rather than linking you to all the great stories they found this week, I’ll send you over to the list to take a look for yourself.

On feminism, mothering, and maternal desire.

This is disheartening – Canadian Blood Services is continuing to defend banning men who have sex with other men from donating blood supposedly because HIV risk. Because straight people can’t catch AIDS? I sure hope Canadian Blood Services has a better way of keeping HIV out of our donor banks than simply saying ‘no’ to gay men, and if they do, the ban on gay blood is redundant (and, obviously, ridiculously discriminatory and based in stereotypes).
