The argument of what all healthcare providers are thinking in terms of sexuality, sexual feelings and sexual intent when they are attending to patients of either gender is truly an empty argument since we will never know. And as Don (writing in Volume 61) pointed out, the providers will be damned by patients both if they admit their thoughts or refused to admit. So, instead, let’s all gather around the tables for discussion of what is most important: how to get the medical system understand that there is to some patients considerable more to patient modesty concerns than what is taught to the doctors and nurses and techs in school. That is now what this thread is all about. ..Maurice.
