FDA to recommend sperm banks reject gay donors

This belongs in the "What the fuck?!!?" category. Thanks to feministing for the story.

As the article states clearly, here's the logical fallacy behind the reasoning.

Under these rules, a heterosexual man who had unprotected sex with HIV-positive prostitutes would be OK as a donor one year later, but a gay man in a monogamous, safe-sex relationship is not OK unless he's been celibate for five years.
