  1. Hey, long time lurker here. Made an account just to give you a little bit of friendly advice. Feel free to take it or leave it. Medicine has traditionally been, and largely remains, a widely conservative profession. To wit, this is changing as demographics change, times change etc. but as a student/resident/physician, you will meet MANY openly conservative preceptors, residents, staff, not to mention patients. If your gut reaction is to dismiss these people as racist, mouth breathing troglodytic skinheads, you're going to have a terribly difficult time as a student/resident/staff. Dealing charitably and respectfully with patients and colleagues, who often have views, opinions, and lifestyles radically different from your own, is an integral part of the profession. I see anti-vaxxers on a fairly regular basis, fundamentalist Christians, etc. If I went with my gut reaction and dismissed these people as uneducated morons, racists, etc., I would be failing as a doc. There are TONS of conservative individuals in the medical profession. You don't have to agree with them, but you're going to have to communicate with them more respectfully than you have on this particular thread. I don't want to be 'that guy' who stalks your post history and drags up old posts, but in so many of your posts you seem to take a very aggressive, belittling, condescending tone with other posters.
