Re: Male Gynecologists and Christian Modesty
I am certainly no doctor, but have been on many OB/GYN related medical calls that covered everything from hemorrhage to childbirth to severe trauma. As a matter of fact, I had to do an quick "look" on a trauma patient this past week. On any trauma, one of the first things we do when we get the patient in the truck is to cut off all of their clothes. If a female is having a heart attack and requires CPR, the first thing I am going to do is expose her breasts (so I can put the electrodes on). I can honestly say that not once have I ever thought "Wow. I am really enjoying this." or "She's hot!" EMS as well as doctors tend to be very mechanical about the whole "examination thing". I don't want to spend anymore time "down there" than I absolutely have to. I just really can't for the life of me imagine why this would be an issue...
IF this is truly a modesty thing, what would you do if you have an OB/GYN emergency (severe bleeding, childbirth, etc.) and two male medics showed up???
