A very fair assessment. I agree with you that it may not have been a fair question in the first place, but that perhaps we can reflect upon it as a greater whole.

Thank you.

I hope so. The questioning of the status quo brought on by a greater diversity of people coming into the profession is a good thing, I think. I disagree with the "sit down and shut up" old school mentality given to students. Sometimes newcomers honestly point the profession in a new direction, if it's respectfully done.

Just another (unrelated) area is technology advances. Students complain that their instructors insist they shlep to the library to watch a film strip on x or y, with scheduling time in a resource room, driving, etc etc. to do something you could watch on youtube in 10 minutes. "Just because that's the way we do it" attitude of some instructors doesn't solve anything IMO. :twocents: :)

My God. You expect your patients to suck it up and accept every humiliating and undignified thing you want to do to them but you refuse to allow anything to be done to you? Why won't you try putting yourselves into their shoes? Why are you too good or too important to experience what they do? It's the only way you could ever understand what they're thinking when you have your hands all over their naked bodies.

Why can't you just suck it up and do it, cowards? No more "holier than thou" attitudes. No more considering yourselves better than normal humans.
