Bit of an aside, but the link above may shed some light on why some people have a problem with 'Lady' ...
Normally I would just use her name.
But I understand the article you have linked. The different attachments of social standing or class have differed over the years.
Frankly with all the PC crap going around it's a wonder that anyone can be called anything but their own name without some form of repercussion.
Thanks for the article.
The clinic we are using has an all female staff. Even the scientists are all female. We are both very comfortable with this
I am quite comfortable having a woman doing all those things. In fact I prefer it.
I have no issue with a male GP, but if I ever have to see a urologist or similar it will only ever be a female unless there is some emergency.
I posed this same question to my partner just the other day. What would she think if the role was reversed?
I got that answer that she didn't care. As long as whatever needed to be done got done.
It sounds very hypocritical of me I know. I think my saving grace here is that my DP doesn't mind.
Is there any history in your past which could explain why physical closeness/intimacy with males creeps you out?
When I was maybe 7 I had abdominal pains. GP was palpating my abdominal region and kept pushing my undies further and further down until I was briefly exposed. Nothing else happened though. He quickly put them back up we if he 'accidentally' went down too far. Whilst I question that supposed necessity or possible error, it doesn't affect me. I had a rectal exam at the same time which wasn't pleasant.my mother was there but behind the curtain. Again, unpleasant but as far as I can see it hasn't caused me any issues. I don't like the memory though. It's a fairly clear memory.
I have several male and female gay friends and I completely support people's right to be who they are.
I am 33 years old and I still greet my 74 year old father with a kiss on the cheek and a big bear hug. I greet one married male friend with a bear hug as well when I see him.
Thank you for trying to help. I appreciate it. It's why I'm here.
It's so confusing and scary because I've never had these reactions before the last few months.
