Mishnah, Makhshirin, 6.6

אֵלּוּ מְטַמְּאִין וּמַכְשִׁירִין. זוֹבוֹ שֶׁל זָב, וְרֻקּוֹ, וְשִׁכְבַת זַרְעוֹ, וּמֵימֵי רַגְלָיו, וּרְבִיעִית מִן הַמֵּת, וְדַם הַנִּדָּה. רַבִּי אֱלִיעֶזֶר אוֹמֵר, שִׁכְבַת זֶרַע אֵינָהּ מַכְשֶׁרֶת. רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר בֶּן עֲזַרְיָה אוֹמֵר, דַּם הַנִּדָּה אֵינוֹ מַכְשִׁיר. רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן אוֹמֵר, דַּם הַמֵּת אֵינוֹ מַכְשִׁיר. וְאִם נָפַל עַל הַדְּלַעַת, גּוֹרְדָהּ וְהִיא טְהוֹרָה:The following cause uncleanness and also susceptibility [to uncleanness]; The flow of a zav, his spittle, his semen and his urine; A quarter-log of blood from a corpse, and the blood of a menstruant. Rabbi Eliezer says: semen does not cause susceptibility. R. Elazar ben Azariah says: the blood of a menstruant does not cause susceptibility. Rabbi Shimon says: the blood of a corpse does not cause susceptibility, and if it fell on a gourd, he can scrape it off, and it remains clean.
