    Ok, I got your point the first, 2nd, 3rd, etc times that you've said the same thing. Did we not get the memo about not beating the dead horse? The OP has had her say on the matter, she's dropping it and I think for the sake of peace that everyone else follow suit.

    Oh and as a P.S? The OP lives in Canada, our laws/rules hardly apply there.

    it's not clear you really got my point njnursing. but i've been around long enough to know it's hard to convince the skeptic you know what i mean.

    mmh_bc good luck in your studies. i know you'll be a great advocate for your patients.

    i do understand your point and i've expressed such. we have a difference of opinion on it, that's all.

    and dave - it has nothing to do with having the last word (as you went ahead and decided you wanted), but with not continuing to beat the dead horse repeatedly. no one is going to conform ideas/opinions so why keep going on and on and on about it? it's created several pages of circles and it can only go around so many times. i'm hopping off the merry go round, tyvm. to think i stuck up for your opinion and get this. sheesh.

    This man is a disgusting pervert. It sounds like the university is not handling things correctly either. I wouldn't let this go, he may not touch you again, but he probably WILL touch other people, in or out of the school setting.
    Report this perv!!!!!

    I know you're probably in a quandrary: your complaint, as detailed as it may seem, against an instructor who may be considered "well respected" by his colleagues or other students (except the others you described as uncomfortable with him). So what do you do?

    Well, for right now, you did the best you could: register a complaint against him. And for right now it seems he got away with what he did to you. But one of the first dictions you learn in psychology is apropos here: "The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior." And sooner or later, the truth comes out. He is going to think he got away with this one, and will do something similar-- guaranteed-- to another student. Then his past with you will come back to haunt him, big time!!

    So just relax for now. Things have a way of working out.

    You poor thing. This absolutely blows my mind. I would have done exactly what you did, I think a lot of people would. You have every right to feel uncomfortable and when you do you have every right to mention it. I would honestly feel uncomfortable in this situation with a male or female instructor unless it was clearly stated what was going to happen and then I fully agree to take part. What he did was ridiculous.

    This disgusts me, it really does.
