PHILADELPHIA Take five or 10 minutes, the professor said, and write down things that you love, like, need or enjoy.
Now pair up with someone you dont know and spend 20 minutes introducing yourself. Talk about whatever you want. But dont mention anything that you wrote down.
Try going on for a half-hour without a word about the most important things in life. Imagine a full day.
It might be difficult, said instructor Robin Brennan. Thats what this course is about. That is just a glimpse of what it is like for somebody who is LGBT lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
The course is about LGBT health disparities, many of which such as higher-than-average rates of suicide, drug addiction and smoking are linked to greater stress. Fear of sharing personal information, even with a doctor, doesnt help.

It is well to recognize that homosexuality is strongly correlated with ill health, even if the approach here is too PC.
LGBT’s who don’t want to talk about their problem objectively will probably find intubation in an emergency unit quite distressful!
Cry me a freaking river. You’re perverted and you can’t tell others about your perversion.
Personally I have no desire to talk to other people about my problems, personal demons, sins, weaknesses, etc.
I sure as hell would not tell my doctor anything.
I would bet a bunch of them would find that pleasurable.
What else is there?
The CDC should have a special section for the faggots. Every time these pukes meet, a new disease comes out it.
I had a primary care doctor - I’ll call him “Dr. Yamato” (not his name but he’s Japanese) - who I saw for maybe 8 years. Then I went through counseling and received counseling approval for estrodial.
I took that approval to Dr. Yamato and you know what? He refused to fill the prescription saying he wasn’t medically competent to prescribe hormones in HRT and he didn’t believe in it.
So I left and found a doctor who did fill the prescription.
And now, 5 or 6 years later, you know who my primary care doctor is? It’s still Dr. Yamato, because he’s a damn fine doctor AND I know he’s honest and I can trust him.
I didn’t whine and I didn’t sue him. I respect his professionalism and ethics. And he still won’t re-up my estrogen. Good for him.
if it isn’t a man’s actual thingy, I think yes.
from what gross and inappropriate things I have heard a lot of it has to do with these pervs sticking stuff in themselves that has no business being stuck in a human
Now why wouldn't anybody want to talk to someone about those most important things in hisife?
This will become a “right” under Obamacare. I don’t know anything about transgender “issues”, but I’m sure they’re expensive, and they last the rest of your life.
I think this is patently ridiculous because I could spend hours talking with someone I did not know and never once mention that I have sex with a man (my husband). I have talked to strangers and not even gotten to the married part. I’ve talked with people at political rallies and other events - Christian events, for example - where we just talked about the IDEALS. And, once you get to talking about the Lord, well, that itself could go on for eternity.
Will the problems that arise in old age from continuous anal penetration be talked about? One of the more gross aspects of an unhealthy lifestyle.
1. Take out the Transgenders and what is the Suicide rate?
2. Otherwise, I have no problems with doctors Learning about ailments. Like I’ll hazard a guess that gay men have more butt problems then heteros.
I just want them to sew me up or whatever, charge a reasonable fee and let me get out of there.
