OK, I'm pretty stunned at this thread, but here it goes. Firstly I respect your comments, you have a right to think of us anyway you want, but I hope you understand the quick angry response from a workforce tired of fighting against long hours, poor pay, bad working environment and bigoted/prejudiced views.
With the main question, at work I am not male/female, not catholic/muslim/baptist etc, not pro life/gun supporter etc, not liberal/conservative. I AM A NURSE!!!!!!!!
If you are pulled out of a car wreck not only are all the personell involved of both sexes, they couldn't give a damn about if you are any of the above too, you are a person who needs care/help and we will provide it to you to the very best of our abilities.
As to my dangerous and all powerful sexual urges, think about your sons and husband, so do they pull over and grab the nearest female worker/passer by during their workday because they cannot suppress the sexual desires? If they can't i guess you'll get a knock at the door very soon! For me personally as I said before, when I pull on my uniform, I am Nurse. Yes, i will think that various people/colleagues/patients I meet during my day will/will not be attaractive but will NEVER be 'pulling various people's legs apart to do interesting medical things'. The cleaner wouldn't like it !!!
