@itsinyoutogive How about after they decide to tell their parents they’re gay so that their parents, in the same ‘coming out’ conversation, can inform them they are not legally allowed to donate blood for being a man that has sex with another man. It ain’t in me to give.
October 1, 1982: The discovery of cyanide in Tylenol capsules. 7 people died from the cyanide-laced capsules. No more cases of poisoning occurred beyond the first handful reported in early October. Yet the crisis showed how the (American) government could spring into action, issue warnings, change regulations, and spend money, when they thought the lives of Americans were at stake.
By comparison, 634 Americans had been stricken with AIDS by October 5, 1982. Of these, 260 were dead. There was no rush to spend money, mobilize public health officials, or issue regulations that might save lives. Everyone gasped a collective yawn over the story of dead and dying homosexuals.
