Friday Quickie – Going Dutch

Was scanning Yahoo! News – Oddly Enough - Reuters when I ran across THIS story.  Since I know you aren't going to click the link:


AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A union representing Dutch nurses will launch a national campaign Friday against demands for sexual services by patients who claim it should be part of their standard care.

The union, NU'91, is calling the campaign "I Draw The Line Here," with an advert that features a young woman covering her face with crossed hands.

The union said in a statement Thursday that the campaign follows a complaint it had received in the last week from a 24-year-old woman who said a 42-year-old disabled man asked her to provide sexual services as part of his care at home.

The young woman witnessed some of the man's other nurses offering him sexual gratification, the union said. When she refused to do the same, he tried to dismiss her on the grounds that she was unfit to provide care.

"This type of action is not part of the job responsibilities of carers and nurses," NU'91 said.

The case has been reported to police, the union added.


Oh, the mind boggles!

  • I thought "going Dutch" meant you WEREN'T going to get laid!
  • I guess she wasn't the "head nurse"
  • Hey Obama!  Is this in OUR healthcare bill!
  • Come on, Nursie.  I want to see your "Netherlands"!
  • How 'bout we warm up that old "thermometer" first?
  • What's the co-pay on a "handsie"?

Definitely gives a whole new meaning to "Dutch Treat."

Cliton wouldn't have had a problem including this, but I'm not sure if Obama will go for it...

Soooo gross, I can't believe some of the other nurses actually did it!

As a former disabled person myself, let me just register my strong outrage and disgust at this story:

When I was disabled, the male nurses helped me change my clothes and do other tasks in the bathroom. Yes.

And they gave me foot rubs too, okay?

Oh, and I got to shower naked with female nurses ~ and, yes, they really did soap me up ALL OVER MY BODY. (I'll pause here for a moment and let you dwell on that image if you're so inclined................)

But, damn it, no-one ever offered me sexual favors as part of my recovery!!!! What the hell???? I feel so cheated now!!!!

*pout*

I'm on an online disability list and you wouldn't believe how many men want that to be a part of their 'care'.

I say, "Get out of the house more!"

Or post on Craigslist.
