Man-hater in my clinical - page 4

I just started my first rotation (LTC) 3 weeks ago, and from the beginning I've been getting seriously bad vibes from one young woman in particular. I don't understand why she has to hate. Is it... Read More

    The best piece of advice my Dad (may he rest in peace) ever gave me as a youngster was: "Son, never forget that women are twice as mean as men, and four times as dangerous."

    This is something you're going to have to learn to deal with in a female-dominated profession.

    Keep in mind that cream rises to the top, and shizzle rolls downhill.

    I have a friend who is a police officer and he said he was glad women aren't allowed in combat. He was at the firing range with a female cop she hit the target 5 times in the kill zone and once in the crotch and chuckled. As he said, women would take all the fun out of combat....

    The difference between men entering nursing and women entering male dominated fields historically is that historically, women were not welcome in male dominated fields for decades. Laws had to be created that forced those professions to admit females. Nursing, on the other hand, just didn't appeal to men for centuries because it was very poorly paying and there was no status associated with it. - bluesky



    IMHO, the nursing profession in the past 10 years has become a more viable career option for men d/t stereotype barriers have been broken.

    My class started out with 61 students, 5 males. The girls disliked guys so much that they elected me president of the class. I wasn't even running. Knock on wood, I haven't had a bad experience with any student or any nurse that I have encountered during my education (so far). I'm sure that I'll run into someone that I find hard to take at some point, but I've found health care providers a lot more pleasant to deal with than most of the folks I dealt with as a law enforcement officer.

    OK, so men didn't enter the profession because they were afraid of being stereotyped? Now that's a real barrier.

    First, I'm not into this Thread to do battle with you. Your more than welcome to your opinion, as I mine. :spin:

    All I'm saying is when I graduated high school [class of '79] the stereotype of a male nurse being gay was much more prevalent than in 1995, and most certainly today. So, back then a young male would be less likely to consider getting into the nursing profession. However, today's society is much more open minded and less likely to categorize nursing as strictly a female profession.

    I second that, Corvette guy (we graduated from HS in the same year).
