Imagine being a medical student (resident), giving a pelvic exam on a “trans woman,” saying something harmless about wanting to eat your lunch, and said trans woman giving some creepy insight about how she he thinks it’s funny because it sounds like you’re implying you want to perform oral sex on her him.

I cannot stand these fucks.

She wasn’t discussing her lunch. She was responding to the fact that her stomach growled and she wanted to get to lunch.

Medical staff have conversations with patients all the time. It’s never meant to be interpreted as sexual.

No, of course the TIM is gross and inappropriate. I didn't mean to say otherwise. I was just thinking I would find that weird, but what do I know.

Speaking personally, it helps me a little bit with anxiety to chat with patients if I’m performing a procedure on them. I work with kids, so it’s especially helpful for both of us to be comfortable during those moments.

I can’t say I’ve ever performed a pelvic exam on anyone and had a conversation about lunch, but I’ve done equally uncomfortable things and found other things to talk about. If I found out they interpreted it sexually, my skin would crawl.
