    When you see a male nurse or orderly, do you automatically assume that he's gay?

    Not at all. I've worked as a caregiver for the developmentally disabled and have met many male nurses during that time. My mother also tends to go to the hospital on a regular basis and I see them all the time there. I don't think I've met a gay male nurse yet.

    naw, that's like saying every female doctor is a dyke. if he's a male nurse in a female nurse's uniform i may raise an eyebrow...

    My uncle was a nurse, after spending time in the army, the police force and the prison service. You wouldn't want to call him gay. Then again, he's getting on for 40 and never been married ;) . Seriously though, their are loads of male nurses these days and I'm sure only a very small number are gay.

    Stupid to consider someone is gay first? Why is that? Why should we automatically assume that someone is straight first unless proven otherwise? Or do we simply assume that everyone has NO sexuality?

    No....Ive known quite a few male nurses that were totally straight....they just happened to chosse being a nurse because they wanted closer contact with the patients than the doctors had.

    Not any more than I automatically hope that whoever I meet is of the persuasion that they would be interested. :)

    I think she meant that it's stupid to make assumptions about one's sexuality based on stereotypes. Isn't that what you intended when you started this thread a couple of years ago?

    I have worked in hospitals & nursing homes with male nurses & nurse's aides. My first thought is ok, if I get a real heavy patient that needs moving/repostioning I'll go get the male worker to help.
    I was there to work not to jump my co-workers, so I couldn't care less what their sex life was all about.

    That is a very horrible sterotype. A person who becomes a nurse because they enjoy the close contact with patients.

    No, when I see a male nurse I don't assume that he's gay, but often I make a silent prayer that please god let him be gay. Nurses are hot.
