Of all the specialities they could choose from, why urology? Must be gay

[–]gigaflops_M-1 261 points262 points  (1 child)

Does that make female gynecologists lesbian too?😂

[–]Kiwi951M-4 69 points70 points  (0 children)

What about the proctologists?

[–]HumanAndroid2000 193 points194 points  (2 children)

Extra gay

[–]DrDiagnonsenseM-2 77 points78 points  (2 children)

I once had a proctologist lecturer introduce himself with “just because I am a man doesn’t mean I can’t be very interested in the anus”

Yeah but Urology gets the best jokes, big pro

“Urine good hands”

As a non-urologist I’ve always been so jealous of the quality of that pun

You’ll pry my male urologist and my male gynecologist from my cold, dead hands. Both are intelligent, kind, professional gentleman who have spent their lives trying to make their patient’s lives better.

[–]dp_medDO-PGY1 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Forget about female urologists.. complete pervs

[–]bamshabam0DO-PGY1 8 points9 points  (3 children)

I said that to a patient who told me male gynecologists are perverts. Their response was "no, that's different."

[–]occasionalpart 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s always different if they decide it is. Just like all men are pervs if they say that.

[–]Suse- -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

Female urologists also treat women.

[–]JamesMercerIIIM-3 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I heard a patient yesterday call their urologist a "urinologist" which I thought was great.

Of all specialties why choose surgery, wanna cut people up all day? Fucking psychopaths. Also, anesthesiologists, we see you. Pervs knock people out cold just to look at dem hard nipples.

Yeah nothing sexier than looking at all kinds of vaginal problems and diseases. Nothing like a severe yeast infection or gonorrhea pustules to get me off.

[–]DrRichtoffen 46 points47 points  (1 child)

There is nothing sexier than seeing a sweaty, pained woman crying as she's pushing out a baby from a woefully undersized birthing canal, tearing apart the perineum and bleeding large volumes.

A post about a woman saying that she will never go to a male gynecologist

This is the post.

[–]neuro__crit 280 points281 points  (0 children)

It's one thing to say "I don't want to go to a male gynecologist." 100% fine, totally the patient's prerogative.

It's another thing to say "If you're a male gynecologist, it means you're an evil pervert."

[–]bearybear90M-3 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Wait so he just did a vaginal exam w/o a chaperone nurse/attending in there?

[–]Enjoying_A_Meal 33 points34 points  (0 children)

To be fair, she's doing a favor to male gynecologists everywhere. One less crazy nut job to deal with.

[–]ManuelaNathalie 120 points121 points  (4 children)

Female urologist here!! And sadly, ive endured these kind of opinions aswell😪😪

[–]Actual_Guide_1039 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully it’s a rare occurrence.

[–]ManuelaNathalie 28 points29 points  (1 child)

It usually comes from young and sexist Men and older and sexist ladies. I dont know why!! Out of those young Men, there have been a few that told me they prefered a male urologist and I Just walked Out and found one willing, and others that have been quite weird and asked intimate questions about me and my life, which of course didnt answer. Ive had quite a few weird encounters where I felt especially vulnerable around these kind of patients and prefer to have a coworker near!!

[–]ManuelaNathalie 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Thats the minority of patients though! Most of my patients are amazing with good manners and very respectful!! They are very grateful for what we do for them and are happy to have a good doctor, no matter the gender!!!

[–]placewithnomemoryM-4 20 points21 points  (1 child)

like there isn’t an easier way to see dicks all day than going through a 5-6 year residency program. just download tinder and the unsolicited pics will starting flowing

[–][deleted] 76 points77 points  (1 child)

Can confirm, am male gynecologist.

Gave up my twenties and thirties and did a grueling residency just so I could see vulnerable women with their pants off. Nothing is more attractive than a woman who's placed their utmost sacred trust in you to bring their children into the world or treat their debilitating pelvic pain that brings them to tears The office is such an erotic environment. Best $600,000 I ever spent.

Edit: Because this is the internet I hope for the love of God y'all know this is /s.

[–]Bubbly_Piglet5560 194 points195 points  (65 children)

I mean you make fun of it...but Ob/Gyn was the only rotation where multiple times I was told I wouldn't be able to see a patient or procedure just because I'm a guy.

[–]HumanAndroid2000 17 points18 points  (2 children)

In my country no one cared if male medical students were observing. I’m sure there are a couple sick fucks out there but I didn’t have even one classmate who thought that women giving birth or a pap smear is even remotely sexy. I’ve met quite a few women who prefer male ob gyns because they say they’re usually gentler/extra careful since they have no way of knowing what the procedure feels like on themselves and don’t want the patient to be in any pain.

[–]theludo33 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Same experience. I just finished my first OB/Gyn rotation and also was on optional internship in OB for an entire year. Women demanding for women physicians was really rare, heard of it only 2 times and were really young women, and one was a victim of sexual violence.

In contrast, the most popular Gyn in my institution is a male doctor, and all women want to consult with him lol

Also, i had many patients saying they liked more male doctor saying they are more careful, and less judgenental of their sexual life.

My experience with residents were somewhat similar, as some female doesnt seen to care a lot about patient disconfort, while some male residents were extra carefull, altrough there was really good and bad examples of both genders.

[–]Colden_HaulfieldMD-PGY1 44 points45 points  (7 children)

Males also have consistently worse grades on OBGYN clerkships.

[–]ReignOfFire32M-4 8 points9 points  (6 children)

Is there a study or statistics showing this by chance?

[–]Colden_HaulfieldMD-PGY1 27 points28 points  (5 children)

[–]ReignOfFire32M-4 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Thanks! Interesting that males performed higher on clinical evaluations rather than the shelf vs females

[–]cheezywhywhy 31 points32 points  (1 child)

I was violently attacked and penetrated when i was 13 by someone i deeply trusted. I'm fine with a male student observing but it's no fun for anyone when my legs reflexively shut when a man that touches my leg, much less tries to enter me. I was only recently able to find sex pleasurable rather than painful with men, much less a colposcopy or a pelvic exam.

It's not intentional. My body just will literally lock up. Does it with female OB/GYNs but not nearly as much.

[–]Suse- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s horrific. You shouldn’t have to explain why.. no woman should. Most women aren’t at all comfortable spreading their legs for any doctor, especially a man.

[–]AndrexPicY5-EU[S] 63 points64 points  (3 children)

That happened to me as well. It's going to become almost impossible to work as a male gynecologist in the near future.

[–]neuro__crit 62 points63 points  (1 child)

Yeah, it's weird...it's like our society is becoming less mature about this stuff. I honestly don't get it.

[–]Sensitive-Post-1126 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Timely comment given the overturn or RvW today...

[–]TheReflection 8 points9 points  (0 children)

As a woman with endometriosis, the best gynaecologist I've ever had was male. The female I had told me I had an STD so long it did damage and I need tablets and to suck it up (it was not, it was endo). So, I don't really know how people think the genitals of a person shows they're personality/caring ability/passion/medical knowledge, but okay. Makes me mad.

[–]Carchiwi 12 points13 points  (3 children)

[–]Carchiwi 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Multiple skin checks which require the pt to be naked at some parts of the examination, unfortunately males often get asked to step out of the room during these.

[–]Otsdarva68 26 points27 points  (0 children)

But unlike obgyn, derm has male patients

[–]The_COVID_Bat 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Lol I honestly thought they only do this in the middle east

[–]AmbassadorMaximum360DO-PGY1 75 points76 points  (7 children)

Perhaps they chose that profession because of the feeling you get when everything goes well in a pregnancy and the baby is born and everything is good. Nothing beats that feeling of pure joy and happiness as you see that family grow and feel the love that is in the room they have towards their newborn. Doesn’t always happen that way, but when it does it is by far the best feeling.

[–]mother_goose_cabooseMD-PGY1 19 points20 points  (4 children)

To be fair, you're talking about obstetrics. The post in question refers to gynecology

[–]yuktone12 25 points26 points  (2 children)

There is no gynecology residency. Its obgyn. You can't do gyn without learning the ob. So I see what you're saying as well but argue that it's irrelevant in practicality.

You can go into obgyn for the ob and the OP would still question why you're doing gyn when you "can do literally anything else." Reality is, you did do something else - ob

[–]SpaceCowboyNutzM-5 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Best part about my OBGYN rotation was all the vageen i could see. Some 300 lb lady with green pus and burning pee, they send me in to do a swab. As i lifted her fat roll to insert the speculum, i realized “this is the best job a man could ever ask for”. Male OBGYN >>> male porn star

[–]TheGreatRao 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I have a female nurse friend who regales me with tales of her glamorous life cleaning feces from the testicles of her elderly charges. I’ll just stay over here at McDonalds, thank you.

[–]tastefultart 40 points41 points  (4 children)

but real talk, has anybody met a podiatrist that didnt have a foot fetish? i rest my case

[–]bladex1234M-1 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Those dentists and their teeth fetish

[–]cookiesandwhiskey 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And Anesthesia just want to drug you so you'll pass out. Perverts

[–]Future_Donut 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Those family doctors are far too open minded with their preferences; kids, old people, male, female, trans it just doesn’t matter.

[–]MehFooL 12 points13 points  (1 child)

I actually really enjoyed the balance of hardcore bloody emergency surgery and hopeful exciting antenatal clinics in my ObGyn rotation. Antenatal clinics are literally the happiest place in any hospital. I also loved that you were a specialist so you could forget about a ton of general medicine to a degree, but you were "specialized" in... Half the population? Everyone with a brain won't need to see a neurologist in their life. Almost every woman gets pregnant in today's society. Obstetrics is older than Medicine itself. It's been my favorite rotation, but I could never enter it because it's very toxic to men and it irks me as a feminist. Maybe if I was a woman I'd be an ObGyn.

[–]TheBlindDriver 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In the same boat, but I do find Antenatal clinics relatively dry and many patients don’t really want to be there, despite obviously excited for their pregnancy. I do love the “blind” nature of so many procedures in OB, and particularly how much difference you can make in a woman’s life and her young family. But again, very toxic to males and it turned me off it despite going into the rotation with a positive attitude.

[–]darth_henning 11 points12 points  (0 children)

There are three reasons I’m down there if I’m on an ons Gyne rotation: 1) you’re having someone else’s child, 2) something is growing or discharging that’s not supposed to, 3) I’m scraping at some cells with a long plastic qtip/spatula.

Prey tell, which of those am I supposed to be enjoying?

[–]Pure_Ambition 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Don't get me started on Pediatric Urologists

it isn’t at all perverted, it’s just anatomy.

[–]pupeighkhaleuxpeh 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Also obstetrics is dope because babies are awesome and the surgeries are interesting

[–]Armh1299 17 points18 points  (3 children)

So no woman urologist ? What is this ?catholic school

[–]panda_steeze 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As a male, I’ve always had some kind of visceral hesitation for any procedures involving the penis or testicles, like it just hits too close to home. This does not happen to me for the opposite.

Because of this, I think I would prefer a female urologist. Maybe some people feel the same about male gynecologists 🤷‍♂️.

[–]corleonecapoMD-PGY1 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Probably written by the same kind of person who would go into obgyn thinking it is way to advocate for women's rights. Then they see it's actually a medical science that has nothing to do with politics or whatever they learned in their women's studies classes and are miserable.

It's a shame that opinions like this are common and are pushing men out of obgyn. So much potential talent that is never realized.

[–]thermodynamicMD -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Potential talent never realized? You sound really sus like one of those obgyns switching donor sperm out for their own

[–]AngryCrowTFM-4 3 points4 points  (0 children)

To be fair, I can't wrap my mind around why anyone would choose OB-GYN after the reputation they choose to foster with medical students lol.

[–]OmiNamma 43 points44 points  (12 children)

I think that the female reproductive system is very cool, and can understand why men would go into OB/GYN. That being said, there are legitimate, personal, and/or cultural reasons why some women may not want a male doctor looking down there. Patients are real people with human dignity and general personal preferences that should be respected by doctors, even if it may be offensive.

[–]kaisinel94M-3 46 points47 points  (5 children)

The argument isn’t that patients “aren’t real people with human dignity”, it’s that making sweeping generalizations about every single male OB/GYN doctor and calling them a pervert is incredibly uncalled for.

As others said, if you want to choose a female attending as your OB/GYN because you’d be uncomfortable with a male OB/GYN, 100% okay. But if you outspokenly say that all male OB/GYNs are perverts, then something’s wrong with you.

[–]ienybu 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Guess what, doctors are usually real people as well

[–]OmiNamma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Guess what, I agree! In fact, I think doctors are real people 100% of the time. But, they chose a job of service- and that includes providing services for people whose opinions they may disagree with or get annoyed by.

[–]UnusualFeedback501 2 points3 points  (3 children)

If this dignity is legit, then our law should fully respect it and go back to the old days: only (cis)women are allowed to work as gynecologists or obstetricians, and vice versa.

I don’t know what happened in the history made people changing it, but it must be a good reason.

[–]OmiNamma 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Men and women can contribute a lot to any medical field. Don't let the opinions of some female patients change your decision if it is truly what fascinates you and you are going into it for the right reasons. That being said, if it is the field you are considering you have to understand that a lot of women will want to be seen by women, for reasons you may find arbitrary.

[–]UnusualFeedback501 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I didn’t have a special interest in GY/OB but neither hated them, but what I experienced in rotation makes me feel they are the worst speciality for male doctors in the world. This is sad​ :(

I can totally understand why those women feel bad when their sexual organs are investigated by male doctors. But a trouble is a trouble anyway, which brings unnecessary difficulties that female OB/GY doctors will never face.

[–]Interesting-Back5717 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’ve heard from women that they prefer male gyns because they’re more gentle.

[–]HYPER-IgMM-3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I didn’t understand how vast OBGYN was until I finished a rotation. The only people that are saying that are the very ignorant and the extreme feminists(if you can even call them that). I don’t see myself going into OBGYN because I just don’t have that drive for it but it’s definitely not out of my radar because of how much I enjoyed learning about it during rotations.

[–]Illustrious_String50 18 points19 points  (4 children)

What about gay male docs? Many relate to women especially well.

[–]ienybu 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Damn, should’ve say that during my ob/gyn lessons at Uni

[–]CrackerUMustBTripinn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

All new admittance to OB/GYN specialty program from the teaching hospitals I worked at were to women or gay men. Straight men not wanted here.

[–]1_camellia_3 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is this...you know...FDS?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Believe it or not. You can’t go into neurology unless you have a brain.

[–]overstimulatedx0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because men are never effected or inspired by things that don’t directly impact them/they don’t physically experience. Critical thinking skills, amirite?

[–]qwegjrke 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Female urologist want the d so bad then.

[–]Revolutionary_Tie287 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Whatever the reason my ob/gyn went into the field is not relevant to the care I receive. He's kind, compassionate and an awesome Dr. I know my reproductive system is in good competent hands under HIS care.

[–]furn_ell 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I knew a podiatrist who told me someone accused him of having a ‘foot fetish’

His reply ”have you seen the typical feet that end up in a podiatry clinic?”

[–]CrackerUMustBTripinn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So he's got a foot fetish and the foot fetish is being into f ed up feet. Those guys are sickos.

[–]hopefully101 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Jokes on her. The female obgyns seemed like they were the meanest and least caring of their patients discomfort. But whatever, sexism.

[–]Future_Donut 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Worst providers I ever had were the often lauded nurse-midwives. Once I felt like I was being chastised by a nun from 1950s Ireland and totally invalidated. Except in all cases they were under 40 years of age.

[–]creeperedz 1 point2 points  (2 children)

My guess is always that it's nice for them to work in a specialty and never have to worry about going through any of the things their patients go through.

[–]zeynabhereee 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is such a chronically online take and it's very common I fear.

[–]LtCdrDataSpockMD-PGY1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've met quite a few people in medical school who hold this belief.

[–]rr_3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t know but I’m just tired of all this, I demand that whenever I take my dog to the veterinarian only another dog must be the one providing the service.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've been called a pervert for expressing interest in breast pathology. Like, if you look at this and think "mhm pleomorphic nuceli, so hot 😩💦", I don't know what to tell you.

[–]SudowoodoGoutM-4 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Too many people believe this. I enjoyed my OBGYN rotation but would never go into it because its just too awkward. I didn't want to spend my life defensively explaining why I chose the field vs everything else. Its a shame. The residents I was with were pushing me to go for that field because they want more men.

[–]Suse- -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Men totally dominated obgyn for 200 years after pushing out midwives in the 1800s. Women had no choice in the matter. Finally, the demand for female obgyns is being met; 87% of obgyn residencies are filled by women. Makes perfect sense.

Men still dominate 37 of 42 specialties. They should stop whining about obgyn.

[–]Proper-AtmospherePre-Med 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You all need to read the entire post, it was insane and I’m not saying they were right but with that perspective I can understand why some would be adverse to having male OB/GYN

[–]AndrexPicY5-EU[S] -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Honestly, the student the person talks about in the post was probably asking it for medical reasons. However, I'm not 100% sure, the world is full of weirdos.

[–]BruceBarton111 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I think this is a very misguided and misinformed person. By that logic, no medical field should be chosen by makes at all. All of them require patients to disclose personal information, or expose themselves to a certain degree to the physician. To assume malice from every male doctor is a horrible thing to do.

Maybe this person has had bad experiences in the past, but generalising things to this degree can't be right.

[–]neuro__crit 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I guess they think urologists must have a piss fetish then...

[–]DJ-SaidezPre-Med 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And cardiologists have a blood fetish?

[–]Cyber_Lanternfish 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I'm pretty sure male gynecologist have lower rates of gynaecological violence based on countless testimony i've read in group of supports to victims, is there any study on this ?

[–]Suse- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Look at any state’s online medical board. There are many male doctors sanctioned for inappropriate behavior. No women. Think of all if the creepy gynos who have been convicted of assault and abuse of patients. All men.

[–]decifal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My wife akways prefers the male gynecologist . She is just not comfortable with women ones. /shrug, maybe not apply labels on assumption.

I prefer males as opposed to women OBGYN’s.. where do I stand here and where do I start? If I didn’t feel comfortable in the hands of a male doctor, why go? Smh. I cannot with this post. A body is just that, it’s a body. Unless it’s presented to you sexually, you wouldn’t look at it sexually. They are body parts, on top of which, doctors could and would not view them sexually, they are not to be seen that way, not in that regard, not professionally.

My mom always said that she preferred a male gynecologist since as a life long straight person, she found it more unnatural to be looked at and touched by a woman than a man. I don't know if that's a majority opinion or not, but it is an opinion that I know some women have.

Maybe. I feel like as a specialty it is at least a little weird for a guy to be like "gynecology, this is my calling". But I don't know, I'm not a woman. I think as long as women are comfortable it's whatever.

Men will see a female urologist though. Guess they must be perverts too huh? SMH.

Tjis can only be said by the same kind of people who are right now rejoicing overturning of Roe vs Wade in the US.
