What is your vote? Should a male nurse wearing a scrub top and has chest hair be required to wear a T shirt underneath in order to cover up the chest hair?... Read More

    "I've seen plenty of docs with chest hair popping out of their scrubs."

    Just because a doctor does it, does not make it right.

    Yesterday, during a code, I looked over and saw the back-hair popping out of the scrub top one of our surgeons was wearing -and got a little distracted...because I couldn't stop staring, and I was thinking: "wow, is he really that hairy??" ..hmm... however, I think it'd be wicked hot to wear a t-shirt all the time under those scrubs ...especially with all that hair! Yikes!

    :yeahthat:

    I think most of the women would be filled with righteous indignation if any of the men on this forum insisted that some feature that we find unattractive should be covered or hidden somehow, no matter how uncomfortable it makes her while doing her job. I do hope this silly trend of finding hair on men's bodies somehow unattractive goes away.

    I'm a man. I have hair on my body. Get over it. :icon_roll

    Hows this? I'll wear a tshirt every day so you don't have to look at my Ron Burgandy 1970s porn star chest....
    You will wear a hair net every day to keep those head hairs from falling into my patients wounds.
    Deal?

    Hi- THis thread pops up no my computer almost daily---I bothered to read the one today-- PORN star is RON JEREMY--not Burgundy-- He is on "reality" tv now---I never saw his "films"----Just wanted to set the record on that "hairy" point.....(I don't know if he does or EVER did wear a t-shirt---but in regard to his films-- bet he was mostly going "commando" or "free-ballin"-- Which ever term is now in vogue.....

    Oh, believe me, I am well aquainted with who Ron Jeremy is. He prefers the open V neck concord collar type shirts and shaves his upper chest so he doesn't have the neck tuft. Ron Burgandy on the other hand leaves his chest hairy to the chin....hence my comment. The porn star reference was simply calling attention to the fact that there was a point in time when hairy chests were considered quite sexy....not "ya nasty" as another poster so elequently put it.

    HI- Sorry-- I'd never heard of Ron Burgundy-- no clue who he is or what he does...I just know the other "RON" bozo from some dumb show I saw once that the now departed "Tammy Faye" was on as well...Talk about an "odd couple"--boy were they!

    There's no need to apologize...
    Ron Burgandy is a fictional news broadcaster from the movie Anchor Man and is played by Will Farrell.

    Actually, I must say I do prefer men with hairy chests. You take a man with no chest hair or the shave their chest hair or Nair their chest hair. To me they look so immature and boyish. I prefer a man to look like a man. I just prefer men to boys, thank God for chest hair.

    First, I must playfully nominate this thread for "Sticky" status. Second, as I am a frequent contributor to it, I must add some further insights.

    The chest hair ain't going anywhere people. Forget making me wear a t-shirt under my scrubs, too. Do you wear a "sweater" under your daily clothing? I do.

    Please don't be offended by my secondary sexual characteristics. (The primary ones are so much more offensive, anyway)

    I prefer to look at it all as an interesting thermal challenge, and some interesting looks of recognition at the primate exhibit. (On both sides of the plexi-glass, I might add)

    It is what it is, and unless you have it, you really shouldn't condemn it. I could cite many more modifiable traits that are REALLY offensive and unprofessional that leave my "man carpet" in the dust.

    Not to totally hijack the thread...but I would love to move this comment and post it on the circumcision thread...I think it would apply nicely.

    As long as a man keeps things trim, tidy and clean, who cares?
    You look like what you look like.
    I, personally, don't think a lot of hair is attractive, but I'm not working with these guys to rate their sex appeal... (outwardly, anyway... what goes on in my brain is often a different matter, but that's private)
    ANYWAY, if they look tidy and professional, that's great.
    A lot of chest hair is not near as repulsive as seeing someone with loose long hair dragging through everything.
    THAT is gross!
