• Discrimination will always exist, because the fact is that Men are different to Women, both physically and emotionally. So it's only natural to discriminate between them. And you mean no ill harm to either of them, so in a sense, it's not "bad" discrimination. For example: I doubt Male/Female restrooms will ever be combined into one.
  • no your not being discriminative. you just need to feel comfortable. thats totally fine!
  • A hundred years ago, when I was in nursing school, there were two male nurses in my class. If it weren't for people such as yourself, they would not have gotten enough experience in required fields, such as OB/GYN to graduate! It is better to err on the side of fairness. You are to be commended!
  • Hehehe you are merely capitalizing on a glitch in the system. And hopefully in doing so, fixing it :).
  • Actually, with all the affirmative action programs for women, it is the men that are discriminated against in becoming doctors. Don't know how you "try" to get a male nurse. They are so rare it is hard to find. They have a lot of difficulty in training and work because so many female patients refuse to allow them to treat them. It is hard to get any real-time experience in class because of this. Many male patients just prefer female doctors but this is all in their minds. There is no evidence that there is any particular difference in care given and the genitals of the caregiver.
  • I try to choose a female of each for myself and my husband like both to be a male. This way it balances out perfectly. That is IF my husband can find someone with a male nurse. Neither of us think that one gender is better than the other but we think this is fair. May I ask, why choose a female doctor and a male nurse? Does it have anything to do with embarrassment or are you just trying to be fair? Just curious. I hope it always works out the way you want it.
  • Since more than 50% of medical students are women, and men preferentially go into surgery and specialities, there are in fact more female doctors than male - and have been for twenty years or more. So in that sense, make doctors are the ones that have to "try harder". But then they tend to "try harder" by going into surgery, so more capable women will stay as general doctors. For myself, I don't find gender enough of an indicator to be worth paying attention to. Judge the person, not their appearance.
  • I don't know how you choose the sex of your nurse, but ok, whatever rocks your boat. What you say may be true, but with all the Affirmative Action, set asides and quotas, the very opposite could be true now. Motivation is not the problem with becoming a doctor, getting accepted into Med School is the big stumbling block.
  • To which discrimination do you refer?
  • i dont think so
