I'm an "out" proud gay man, and built most of my own house, do my own carpentry, fix and restore my own cars, drove a self-restored '75 Dodge truck and '63 Impala to school and work, and am generally "butch as hell" as I've been described by my female friends in nrsg school. Funny thing is,,,, the "gay guy wants to be a nurse" stereotype fits to a point for me, but even tho I'm gay and out AND a nurse, I don't fit the gay stereotype!When I tell people that I am going into nursing I get the LOOK! Then they ask "does your partner support you" and I look them in the eye and say, yes my wife loves the idea. They are shocked that a straight guy would go into nursing.
Very small minds in this worlds!!!!!
Any one else get the LOOK???
I've actually very seldom gotten "the look", but I have gotten hit on by all the pretty single girls I went to school with, and when I explained to them I had a male significant other and wasn't interested, they all wanted to hit the gay bar with me on Friday nights! Still have weekly lunches with them!
Roll with it dude, males in nursing are breaking all kinds of stereotypes, and old opinions die hard, but they WILL die sooner or later as more men realize the satisfaction a nursing career provides.
