Does anyone know what the ratio of men/women surgeons?? is it more difficult for a woman to compete for a spot in surgery?
I'm not a spelling-nazi... but I read this and thought.... "Leggo my Eggo!" Damn those man-surgeons and their frozen instant waffles!!!!!!!!!!!!docbill said:put up with the bitch-A$$ Men, their eggo's and their multiple personalities.
Yeah, I would never want to have a male surgeon, eitheratrovariousg said:I'm not sure, but I would rather not have a surgeon of the weaker sex, and I think most members of the weaker sex would as well.
I've often wondered about the whole "technical" inclincation debate in general. It's only been in the last 20 or so years that women were really given a mainstream chance to pursue medical/technical degrees (even though some broke through the barrier much much earlier - e.g. Rosalind Franklin, Marie Curie, etc). Before then they were laughed at and patted on the head for even considering it (or so it seems from history).PlasticMan said:Not saying either are inferior, but perhaps it has to do with how men are generally more technically inclined and surgery is a technical thing? Look at the IT or engineering industries as an example ???
