Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Nurses having it far worse than doctors has little to do today with societal framing as subservient etc.

Also today I honestly doubt nurses are seen in any of those demeaning ways that you quote - men included. I don't society sees caretaking or humanitarian work in a demeaning way. But that's just MHO.

Men not filling up nurse jobs might not always be due to demeaning views of the profession, but also to not feeling fit for it, purely and simply. I support women emancipation and freedom, but we should try to avoid falling into misandry.

Do you ever wonder about why men wouldn't feel fit for it ?

It is you who should explain that. I personally do not think the profession is seen in a degrading way today.

I haven't yet commented on the nurse debate, and don't intend in detail; but I note that I have a relative in the USA who is a nurse, a high-paid one at that, but she did complain especially about the attitude of doctors and that she is not allowed to do certain things even while she knows as much as a doctor -- and thus her goal is to become a doctor.

I did explain, and unlike you I provided arguments, based on other things that my personal opinion.

You showed reasons of dissatisfaction with the job, not proof that the society views the profession in a demeaning way. Not the same thing.
