Quote from kabfighter
I would fear for my career if anyone ever said that to me. I have no idea if I would be able to make my response civil. It would probably be something along the lines of: "Yes, my hot 22-year-old girlfriend really isn't cutting it for me. I only like women with breasts that are tucked into their elastic waistbands."
Only ignoramuses state that only perverts become male nurses.
This is either:
1) a funny coincidence because I too have a hot 22-year old girlfriend,
2) proof that the ignoramus is actually right, because my girlfriend is 22 and I am shall we say some amount of years older and wiser.
I guess that makes me look like some sort of pervert.
However, said person did a pretty good job of alienating everyone in the room by time the semester was done. She was very opinionated, strong-headed, self-absorbed, self-convinced of her right to exist and would often spout out stuff like this (or worse). She routinely offended people and didn't ever seem to notice or care. She'll have a lovely time in patient care, I'm sure.
I wanted to say something to her at that time, but when several other people in the room turned to look at me (the only guy in the place) I just gave a goofy smile, a wink and two thumbs up.
