Annoying conversation...

Two people we overheard talking while walking past the office today:

"He's a male nurse"

Does the qualifier 'male' really need to be used when you say 'he'?


  1. A nurse once introduced himself to me as a male nurse. I was stunned. I just said, "Wow, do people usually not know?" and he said, "They usually think I'm the doctor". *sigh*

  2. It's a good thing that we live in a post-feminist era where gender no longer matters and anyone can be whatever they want...
