Med Students! You’re Too Gay- This Professor Knows What She’s Talking About
Anyone whose profession it is to educate the young people of the world knows that there is one single piece of advice that’s most important when it comes to being successful:
Don’t act too gay.
Dr. Una Coales of the Royal College of General Practitioners, in either a moment of extreme homophobia or what might vaguely be considered her looking out for her students’ best interest given the sociopolitical views of her university (did I just write that?), recommended that her students act straight in order to do well on a test.
“So I advised him to lower and deepen his high-pitched voice, neutralise the excessive body movements and walk like a ‘straight’ man.”
Everything is still “under investigation,” which is higher-education speak for “Yeah, we like… asked her a few questions, or something.”
My two cents? If you have to advise your students to “act like a straight man” to pass a test, maybe you aren’t teaching them enough to pass it otherwise.
Is this a case of good intentions gone wrong, or his homegirl unfathomably out of touch with reality?
