Females don't expect being labelled a "lesbian" because of their job, so why should men be labelled as "gay" because he's a nurse? Despite what the public's perception of male nurses is, we're supposed to be professionals and lead by example, not gossiping about who's gay and who isn't.

    As far as "less drama", one if the guys is well known for being a bit of a drama king, and is well aware of it. Guess it's just his personality, not hormones after all.
