In the past week, I’ve heard several different feature stories on t.v. and on CNN on the radio. ( XM Radio ). They all basically played the same theme- men are big babies, they have to be dragged to the doctor for regular physicals and certain tests and check-ups.
The worst was a doctor being interviewed on CNN. She said, " Look men really are just big babies and we women have to push and cajole them into having prostate exams. Hey guys, we just want you around a bit longer ! " Her entire approach was incredibly condescending and immature. She said, " Women? They have their gynocologist appointments and of course they have babies so they have NO PROBLEM seeing the doctor a lot every year".
Well, fuck you lady doctor. I’ve got female friends who don’t go to the gynocologist. I have one female friend who has not been to a gynocologist since her second child was born and that was over 13 years ago for chrissakes.
It’s just so fucking insulting. " We want you around a bit longer ! " Oh? Garbage needs taking out, does it? Tile needs grouting? Her attitude was just so appalling.
Adults of both genders either take care of themselves or don’t but man it’s a huge backhanded insult to say, " Happy Father’s Day, your gift from me is that I am wearing a necktie of yours to remind you to get a prostate exam cause I love you so I am wearing your necktie. So, go to the Doctor and that is your Father’s Day gift". Seriously- that was another story on t.v. Women and daughters wearing their father/husband’s neckties on Father’s Day, to let them know they cared.
Let’s turn this around.
" Happy Mother’s Day !! The kids and I are all wearing your bra’s around our waists, to let you know how important it is to do BSE’s and have a yearly mammogram. That nice relaxing day and dinner out? Fuck that- we’re going to insult your intelligence, degrade your sense of self preservation and strut around reminding you to spread em and crush em once a year !! "
How twisted. Assholes. Find me a male who isn’t aware of the age at which he needs to start having both 'scopes and bloodwork to keep an eye out for prostate cancer? ( Which last year killed more people than breast cancer, according to the Necktie Lady from the t.v. )
