I’m a fat feminist. Half of my god damn life is being told I’m unfuckable. Don’t come around deliberately misunderstanding the point I’m making to add to the chorus in the name of being the “real feminist.”
As a fat woman I would never let a male gynecologist near me. The thought that my health and well being relies on whether or not he wants to fuck me is incentive enough to be done with the whole lot.
men shouldn’t be allowed to be gynecologists okay nope
yeah this always made me uncomfortable and i refuse to have one as my gyno, sorry not sorry
I happily have an older man as a gyno… sooo… Yes. He is also a prof at McGill. Teaching the next…
I’ve had two female and one male gyno. My male gyno has been more understanding, more size accepting, and warmer and kinder to me. He remembers me and says hi to my children while the female ones act like I’m something unpleasant they stepped in.
A gyno should make their patients feel comfortable and cared for in a professional and safe manor, regardless of gender.
Mmmm, love the sexism (yep, it’s sexism) in the original post here. In all honesty I HAVE seen an article which gives credence to this thought, though ironically it’s not even MENTIONED here (nor are any of the reasons there is credence to the thought huh …).
So anyway, I can’t find it now but at one point I read this whole long article going into how male gynecologists really do see women as attractive, and “get their rocks off” if you will while handling regular gynecological visits (some do, not all obviously). And at the time it bothered me but not all THAT much. But the more I thought about it, and think about it … why does that matter? If my gynecologist finds my vagina attractive, he’ll be more likely to want to preserve that attractiveness. He’ll be more likely to make sure any issues get treated promptly and professionally, he’ll be more gentle, he’ll basically take really great care of it. So yeah, do I mind if my gyno is attracted to my vag (male or female … there are lesbians you know) and the answer is … nope. Like it, love it, just take care of it!!!
I doubt you read the same article I did then, the one where male gynos are more likely to perform unnecessary tests on women they find attractive AND less likely to pursue necessary care on women they find unattractive. So not only are you actually not getting better care because some pervert with a medical degree gets his rocks off looking at your labia but he’s not giving adequate care to other women so he can spend more time doing it.You know, this article? http://forwomenseyesonly.com/2012/09/09/the-other-side-of-the-speculum-a-male-doctors-point-of-view/
