    How about a Male Flight Attendant? Cut your Hair?

    EDIT: THIS QUESTION IS ABOUT WHO YOU'D LIKE MORE FOR THE NURTURING QUALITIES OF THE PROFESSION, GIVEN THAT WHOEVER YOU HAVE IS EQUALLY QUALIFIED AND DOING THEIR JOB ADEQUATELY.

    Interesting conversation on NPR today about professions often associated with women, and how many people prefer it that way. Though open to males taking on traditionally female roles, many men and women would prefer a female nurse because they associate females with more nurturing qualities.

    Would be interesting to know how you guys feel. I think I'd want a female nurse, but would take either as a flight attendant. I would most definitely flirt with a hot male flight attendant.

    You?

    I WAS going to school for nursing. It's not uncommon for men to be training in this field anymore. Some of them are gay, some of them aren't, RN's (females) have actually told me they prefer the male nurses because of the less drama and more workig. Who doesn't like a hot male nurse anyway?

    less drama? how? lol... I think it depends on the individual... male or female alone doesn't make a more caring or better nurse. And yeah, a hot male nurse would be awesome.... but an out of shape male nurse who smoke and drink would be bad news.

    I sometimes get the impression there are more male flight attendants these days. Or it seems that the flights I've taken the past few years have had more men on board than women. Gay men at that icon_lol.gif

    As for nurses, all I care is that someone listens to me. I have had my share of female nurses who seemed very uninterested, lazy, and forgetful. Oddly enough, I haven't had any bad experiences with a male nurse yet icon_wink.gif

    I have no issues with gender and job though I'd prefer a male nurse for procedures below the belt.

    I considered becoming a nurse as my next career, even though I'm a bit sqeamish when it comes to the grotesque, and was hoping to take a class or two to see if I'd enjoy it or even had the aptitude for it. To overcome my squeamishness I started volunteering at a hospital and found I could handle things better than I'd have thought. But then I found out that I'm not able to simply take a course at the local university--can't even audit one--without having already gotten accepted to the College of Nursing program.

    I guess their resources are that limited and the competition to become a nurse that intense that they can't offer their classes to someone outside the program. So I've been taking classes in other helping fields instead. I think that a male becoming a nurse is an entirely admirable thing to do. I associate nursing with blood and guts and puppy dog tails, not with sugar and spice and everything nice.

    Is this a response to that thread asking about dating gay bartenders?

    Come here, you. I have a special rubber ducky for ya.

    And I'm not sure what the nurses meant when they said less drama, but I personally prefer when the male nurses are working because they make work easier for me, they aren't as gossipy or demanding like the female nurses who are the majority.

    My (straight) older brother is a RN. Let's just say I wouldn't mind having some of his former nursing school classmates taking care of me icon_wink.gif

    If all equalify qualified, who do you want wiping your ass, holding your hand, covering your head with a damp cloth, and telling you you're going to pull through? icon_razz.gif

    Rewind the clocks about 50 or 60 years and ALL jobs will be male only.

    This is an interesting point. It makes me think of when I have to go to the local health clinic for my work to take the random drug tests they issue everyone fairly often (they're pretty strict about it at my workplace). And whenever I have to go to give a urine sample, I always prefer when I speak with female nurses. It's much more comfortable and I feel more relaxed when I talk to them. Male nurses, as much as they act in good faith, I am less comfortable around. Especially good looking ones. Make me nervous. icon_redface.gif

    You mention prostitution as if there were no male prostitutes 50 years ago. Or am I misinterpreting this?

    I had about 1 guy to every 5 girls in my nursing program. I know one other aside from me was gay, but I'm pretty sure the remainder are straight. It's becoming more common, just as it is to have a female physician. I'll tell you one place not many patients want male nurses though, the maternity ward. It was a surprisingly great clinical experience, but I was lucky to see one birth. Most of them didn't want male students, and my instructor always had to preface with my gender when asking patients if they minded having a student on the postpartum floor. I never experienced that anywhere else.

    Whenever I think of a male nurse, I will always think of Ben Stiller in Meet the Parents.

    Gender doesnt matter. I prefer a nurse who knows their job well.
