    lizz...out of curiosity, how many guys did you have? We currently have 3/55 and I'm waiting to see if the other two made it through 1st semester. It might be a bit of a shock if I walk in the door first day of class and TAH DAH...it's the incredible "token male"! Although I'd have to make sure I'm a least worth a golden dollar.....
    We actually had eight guys graduate out of a class of 38 so ... quite a few. I think we had the most guys ever in our class.

    I thought the guys' video was really great ... and it was a big hit with the audience.

    For those that do not like the idea of a pinning ceremony, I hope your school will be understanding that you wish not to participate.
    jb2u, this thread follows the idea that the men LIKE the idea of a pinning ceremony, but DISLIKE the idea of a feminized pinning ceremony.

    that is 100% correct for me! i don't have a problem with being recognized and pinned. it is all the traditional girlie things that will be going with it that bothers me.

    Why dont they just get all the graduates to get a tatoo of a big pink uterus right across their arm or calve.

    This thread is killing me...i am literally belly laughing. Yall are hilarious.

    By the way I am looking forward to the 40 virgins i receive at my pinning ceremony.

    My friend (another male nurse) said all the girls around him were all planning the ceremony and asked him his opinion and he said that he wasnt going to participate.
    One of the girls was upset and said "well what will you have to show for all of you hard work?"
    He simply said, "a job."

    I am 6'2, 265 lbs and built like a linebacker. I thought of showing up at my pinning ceremony in a skirt and long blonde wig and just play along.
    I am not sure the wifey will let me though.

    First, they probably could not stop you as long as you complied with the dress code. PC and all that jazz. Man, I'm truly afraid of that sight.

    Well I am a girl...I have to admit that first off! We are in our last semester we have 3 guys out of 26 now!! We are in complete control of our pinning...if we even want to have one! I know that IF we do have one..the guys will be planning it...they are very funny...and they would make it a blast...none of us want some cheesy white stuff and if we have one there will be lots of liquor involved I can assure you of that!!! It could be a very interesting day!!
