My experience with a gay male nurse

  1. 0
    I'm not gay, but I don't automatically put anyone in a category due to sexual orientation. There was a hot white girl at the facility that I got along with very well, but she's married and I'm married, so it was all business. Same with the gay guy.

    The gay guy was very supportive in helping me meet my objectives, and I think he is a very good nurse and a good person. Same with the hottie white girl. Both helped me out quite a bit in my orientation period and I owe them both a debt of gratitude. Hope to see them again some day.

    I've moved on to another facility that has an entirely different focus, so any chance of meeting up with either one is pretty much zero, but I would be happy to see either one.

    I don't care at all what my coworkers' sexual orientation is, straight or gay.

    I will say that if a male cuts off his penis and testicles and is covered in nonsensical tattoos from head to foot, he is crying out for help. He is not trying to become a woman. To refer to that person as "she" instead of "patient" is a grave disservice.

    When you've cut one or two down from their nooses you'll get the idea.

    I gotta second the "hunh??""

    By mentioning the "hot white chick" and the "gay guy" you are already showing that you distinguish them from "others."

    I think has had to deal with his/her fair share of suicides.

    I'm failing to see a point to this post at all. I also find some of the terminology you use to describe your co-workers pretty offensive. "The gay guy"? "The hottie white girl"? Ick.

    Ha! Not the most PC thing seen in awhile. Alrighty, then.

    Is your terminology dissociation, allowing personal distance from the individuals in qusetion (I'm detecting a hint of de-personalization), intentionally exaggerated, or is that the inner Beast lolling aound in the dark?

    Psych-fiends tend to be a little off-kilter, and our individual awareness of our own perceptual basis/bias is highly indicative of our inherent capacity for predation.

    We may have some points of agreement, but the statements are too subjective to clearly interpret.

    If you start off your post with "I'm not gay," you are saying a lot about how you feel about it. Pigeonholing people into derogatory categories is likely to affect your ability to be an objective nurse... Not sure what you were trying to accomplish with this post.
