    Currently there is a huge amount of "noise" going on in the UK about nurses who are "too posh to wash", and how professional standards have slipped since the cap and starched apron attired nurse.

    About a year ago a British nobel who was in hospital issued a statement basically calling the nurses who provided his care "*****" and two steps from the streets. This joined a long list of comments from various persons from doctors to regular citizens/subjects bemoaning what they see are nurses conducting themselves like loose tarts. The thing was not helped by a recent advertising scheme featuring a very "sexy" nurse.

    Yes, historically female nurses that weren't in holy orders were drawn from the lower classes of society before FN reformed and changed the profession. Charwomen, tarts, drunks, theives, and god only knows what sort of other "low" women were pressed into service, with or without any formal training. Dickens points to this in Oliver Twist where the "nurses" and matron assigned to care for the young boy's mother as she is in labour and subsequently dies. They not only steal the young girl's clothing (being the daughter of a wealthy family she had nice undergarments and the lot), but the locket around her neck.


    Because of this association FN's family was shocked when she chose to go into nursing (a profession for harlots, her sister is rumored to have remarked), as indeed well into the 20th century the profession was one not deemed fit for "nice" girls.

    Miss. Mirren's remarks about being familiar with the naked body and such are behind many of the fetishes regarding female nurses. After all not only is she "know" the human body and it's functions, but is required by duty and custom to come into often intimate contact with strange men of all classes.

    Finally where do you think the "moral fittness" clause in nearly every nurse practice act the world round comes from?

    Hmmm. What the hell does this say about me? Does Mirren think I am homosexual because I am a male in a female dominated profession, another oft-repeated misconception.

    On second thought, "dominated" may not have been the best word for this conversation.

    That was exactly one of the questions that ran through my mind - what about the men in nursing? Silly woman - but it's not silliness. She's being incredibly disrespectful to a profession that doesn't deserve it.

    Should also like to mention, the one thing that comes out with the litany of public and famous men and sex scandals with "rent" boys and girls, is how the Internet has changed the world's oldest profession. Where to you think some get the vast sums to attend college or university? Sort of gives a new meaning to "working one's way through school"

    Would also like to point out, unless someone is arrested and or convicted of *ahem* working, one has totally no idea. Even then at least in the United States federal and state laws vary as to what criminal convictions affect one's license, and or being hired. Moral fittness is determined by state board hearings, and while some would think a conviction or having has worked in a certain profession should be an automatic bar, as with the recent case of the Florida nurse who lost then subsequently had reinstated his license, morality often is a very elastic term.

    Oh, the only other profession (though not nearly equal in rank IMHO as nursing), that historically been associated with *bad girls* are laundresses and needleworkers.

    Religous orders and governments long felt the (then) hard work of laundry was useful and good females who had gone astray, erred, or otherwise didn't fit the standard of the day. Convents, prisons and other institutions for females all had laundries that took in major amounts of work.

    Needlework was something most every woman knew back in the days, and again it was seen as a useful occupation to "reform" bad girls. It was also one of the only ways a woman earn funds aside from the streets, though in some countries, professional needleworker guilds were banned by law from having "known" public women as members. This was because daughters of the better classes were often sent to live with "linen maids" to learn embroidery skills, and it simply wouldn't do if such woman was not respectable.

    I'm British. She's British. I'm not giving her a pass on that. She's a stupid cow.

    It's such a wackadoo statement, I don't even feel like wasting my energy getting offended.

    I think the only people who should go on record spewing facts on hookers should be hookers themselves. I don't get her comment, unless she has met a couple of women who have been down that road.

    You know how it is to some people- they hear certain experiences from 2,3,4 people then that becomes 'everyone'.

    I still can't get past seeing her in The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover... can't see her in the other roles, as a queen or otherwise. She's a great actress, but I think the scenes from that movie have tainted her in my mind... So perhaps a bit of incorrect stereotyping on my part, too!
