Do they ask for gender identity in addition to biological sex? Or instead of sex? I once read a post from a nurse explaining how dangerous it is for a man to receive a woman's donated blood if that woman has ever been pregnant.

Both. And as for the blood being donated to a man from a previously pregnant woman, I had read some research that indicated there was an increased risk of death to the man, but in re-researching it for this post, I found that it is no longer considered dangerous: NIH article

I would ask them if my complaint counted.

I wish I had thought of that in the moment. I was just sort of flabbergasted.
