That's what they get for being attractive and within a 10 foot radius.  If they didn't want to be sexually harassed they'd be unattractive and further away

ladyfortuna: The waiting room is a little intimidating, because he's probably delivered 500+ babies and they're all on the walls.


Maybe he should start using a delivery room then, and probably catch them on the way out.

doglover: Men get groped at work, too. Probably as often or even more because we're not allowed to complain about it.


When I was putting  myself through University as a Surgical Tech one of the Nurse Anesthetists not only groped me, but hit on me and thoroughly expressed her interest in (cough) exploring one another's anatomy. And after getting herself a sizable handful of (cough) of my sensitive area a circulating nurse took me home one night after our shift to (cough) cook me dinner, but that was spoiled by her shooting her ex-husband in the (R) shoulder. Through the front door. As he was trying to break it in.

So, it happens. I learned to live with it.

Bucky Katt: fusillade762: I really wouldn't take the chance of pissing off my doctor. Could end up getting prescribed something quite nasty.

Or getting jabbed with something sharp.


And then my doctor said, "You're going to feel a little prick".

I've never been groped at work.


Me either.  I've been waiting for years and nada.

reminds me of my last physical.
I ended up with a young resident.
not a bad looking woman at all.
at the end she got  a bit weird as she asked if there was anything else.
I said no. then she she hemmed and hawed and then finally said: "most men want me to check their prostate"
Something about the way she said that made me feel really sorry for her.
so I lied and told her "No, I'm good. Maybe next time"

People, let's not lose sight of the most significant fact here: this study took place in Australia.  Of course there's going to be a lot more sexual harrassment.

Smackledorfer: Bathysphere: Smackledorfer: People who are groped complain, but I think they would prefer it to being ungropably unattractive.

Grass is always greener.

/got groped when I was a waiter
//there was lots of groping all around.

What if you were so unattractive that you were only groped by people in your league. Now that would suck.

Groping doesn't work that way.

As a nonconsentual act, everyone gropes up.

With the exception of weirdos and alcohol.

Of course as an 18 y.o. man, with virtual rape immunity (to women), having a few ladies touch me in places was quite a lot better than school, where even my imagination involved girls wanting little to do with me :)


You got "friend-zoned" by your own imagination!?

he is concerned that less than 7 per cent of the GPs said they had been trained on how to deal with sexual harassment by a patient

See there? THAT's the problem. Patients are horribly underqualified to train GPs on how to deal with sexual harassment. That task should be left to professional.

ImmaHoopyFrood: I wouldn't say it is one of the most respected jobs (independent software dev), but I've been groped twice. I'm a dude and both were female managers/clients.  First time was a simple butt grab and a "You smell so good".  The other was a nibble on my ear from behind and a right hand over my crotch while I was sitting in a chair.  Both times I simply said "I'm married". 2nd time was tough though because she was extremely attractive.  I felt flattered instead of violated.  I figured they were just trolling for flings.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Men treat women like objects. Ric Romero reports.


Of course they do. Just look at the sentence structure:

Men treat women like objects.

Subject verb object (plus prepositional phrase or some such thing).

Having done two years of pharmacy residency at two different teaching hospitals and now working at a third, I've not ever met an unattractive medical resident, intern, or med student. Of either gender. I think that being beautiful is a prerequisite to med school admission. Trolls like me get to go to pharmacy school.

Chariset: I've read a lot of stories from emergency room doctors needing to let off steam. Apparently sexual harassment  from the (drunk/stoned/stupid) patients is common, but so are four-point restraints and a nice dose of Haldol.

simple...one can live with a car or a computer that's broke. Not so much with a body that is broken.


But the mechanic actually has to know something. The IT guy has to be able to fix things. Machines don't fix themselves. Bodies do. A general practitioner only has to know a handful of drug names to make you feel better while you heal and how to say "I'm refering you to a specialist."

Go see your mechanic for that.  He can prescribe you something.
