There are only two genders to choose from, so regardless of whether you're male or female, chances are you've only got a 50:50 chance you'll get a doctor or nurse that looks like you. In today's world, more men are getting their nursing degree and more women are becoming physicians. Sounds like this group wants everyone to go back to their comfortable gender-based traditional places. For centuries, men have dealt with female nurses tending to their needs, some very personal, like catheter changes, bed pans, sponge baths, and the like. I just had some surgery done and 80% of the staff working on me were female. I did not concern myself with what gawd awful things they would do to me once I was sedated. They acted professionally, seemed very competent and I was glad to have them caring for me. As overworked as care providers are today, they simply don't have time to notice the size of your "whatever(s)" and, even if they did, whose to say that a male nurse wouldn't do something questionable with a male patient, and a female nurse won't step over the line with a female patient? I want the best nurse and best doctors I can afford and I don't care what genitals they have.

"Much ado", is the correct term. Read much?

It is still a misquote

French or not, it shows your lack of intelligence. First, do you know the meaning of the word "adieu"? Secondly, do you know the meaning of the phrase "Much ado about nothing"? Read much?

And no, it wasn't a misquote. The intent was correct, just misused a similarly sounding word. Speakenglish.com , under idioms, defines the meaning of that statement as being "If there's a lot of fuss about something trivial, there's much ado about nothing." Consistent with sweet pea's contribution to the discussion, which was more spot on than yours, Warrensburg/ Topeka.

Nothing funnier than when a elitist snob steps up to show how bright they are, only to reveal their intellectual hypocrisy. LOL

It is a misquote. The fact that you "got their point" doesn't change that fact. LOL, at your attempt to defend a fellow idiot.
