Why are liberals now demanding gay men should be allowed to donate/sell blood when 1-in-5 metro-area gay men have HIV ?

Half of whom DON'T EVEN KNOW THEY HAVE IT. Should the definition of "liberalism" be changed to "Literally the exact opposite of common sense 100% of the time"?

One in five gay/bisexual men in the 21 U.S. cities hardest hit by AIDS have HIV infections -- and nearly half don't know it, a CDC survey finds.

Update:

Like clockwork, libtards chime in with their usual nonsense. Apparently, not wanting to receive AIDS-infected blood at the hospital makes you "mentally ill"

    This liberal would never demand such a thing. Stop with the blanket accusations.

    because 80 % of them don't have it.

    We know what kind of behaviour increases the risk, and people with risky behaviour are told to not donate.

    We are testing the blood

    Heterosexuals can have HIV too

    Blood-donors are in short supply

    I don't agree with selling blood though. We don't do that here in Europe as far as I know

    Well, they'll know soon enough because blood is now screened for HIV and has been for many years.  An estimated 1.1 million people in the United States were living with HIV in the U.S. at the end of 2016, the most recent year for which this information is available. About 14% (or 1 in 7) people living with HIV in the U.S. don't know it and so need testing.  Not only gay men have HIV.
