    The concept of "manliness" as a source of bad behavior in a gender dominant workforce is interesting. I applaud the rules of behavior offered to the new male nurse entering that workforce. I think the rules offered in the post are applicable to everyone at work. I mean, bad behavior is bad behavior no matter the reason.
