A word for the day: Misandry

Acutally,
Pneumoconiosis refers to a proliferative, chronic, inflammatory pulmonary disease process whereby people inhale mineral particles of many types. (sand, talc, rock dust, coal, and similar, related particulate matter).

It is not just limited to coal miners, however, I could understand and accept that many consider it a disease caused by inhaling coal particles, becuause that is ONE of many causes of pneumoconiosis, and perfectly acceptable. In essence, we are both correct.

There are many different types of pneumoconiosis, that I am aware of.
There are at least 7different types that I am aware of.
1. Asbestosis (a type of Pneumoconiosis)
2. Silicosis (a type of Pneumoconiosis)
3. Talk Pneumoconiosis
4. Kalin (Chinese clay) Pneumoconiosis
5. Siderosis of the lung Pneumoconiosis

I am a Pain Management Specialist (used to be a GP, then changed specialties). Although I am no longer practicing. I retired early, and am enjoying the good life now. Looking to volunteer somewhere, or maybe even work part time at some fun job to "get out there" and meet others. Who knows where I will end up.
Why consult Hawk? Is he also a physician or something? Just curious.
See ya.

Mmmm...cannot say I blame you from switching to Pain Management, as opposed to being a GP. I'm sure it is a lot more lucrative and challenging.

Hawk is in the medical field, as well.

Thanks for the clarification. I'm on the different end of the spectrum in healthcare and am grateful when clinicians and docs take the time to explain things to me. It makes my job a lot easier.

No problemo.
As a physician, I am learning new things all the time too. Any physician who says he or she knows it all is a liar. We are all always learning.
Peace.

By the way, Hawk is not a physician.
He is a Physician's Assistant.

Although Most PAs are very qualified and capable, There is a big difference (education, years in college, training, experience, knowledge, and capability).
Not being rude, just telling you there is a difference.

I am sure Hawk is a fine, capable PA.

Oh no you didn't!!!!

I love it when doctors get all uppity. It tickles me to no end. Primarily, because I sit in a position where I can put their egos in check and tell them, "no." And...my word stands.

First...docs complain that their time is so limited, they cannot be bothered with the lesser things. Then...they complain because PAs, who serve a valuable service to not only them...but their patient mix, have equal abilities to write scripts and most patients would rather visit with a PA and get quality care than a physician with a G-d complex.

FWIW...I work in a hospital, too. I do lovely things like cost benefit analyses to keep docs from getting their little toys, research fodder and free goodies from suppliers (a practice which is in violation of the Safe Harbor Act) which are unnecessary costs to an institution and have little impact on patient care.

There is no lesser cog in the wheel in healthcare. None. I should like to believe we are all in the business for the same thing...helping people. Then again...there are the mercenaries who would switch disciplines based solely on the opportunity for financial gain. :twisted:

You are just resentful that you are only a PA and not a physician.

I live in America, but if it's the same as misandry in America, then it's pretty bad.

However, if it's worse, then that would be absolutely terrible.

And, yes, in places such as America, Sweden, UK, and other, men have it worse, to a far greater extent.

Agreed. Feminism, as a whole, is very bad and anti-male.

In America, there was a woman who proposed that men should have to pay a certain percentage more for healthcare, just for being men.

Another said that men should be reduced to 10% of the population.

Many have said that all men are potential rapists.

I could go on.

And it makes me ashamed to be an American.

Feminism isn't anti-male. Militant feminists are but the feminist movement is about equality which as a man I approve of.

I don't know about misandry, but I do get a vibe that I am being treated as a "potentially dangerous" by default. It's not very rare to see lone women to cross to the other side of the road when they see me walking towards them (just walking, minding my own business) on a narrow sidewalk or walk a 10m circle around me, or have that mousy look down as they are passing by. Took me some time to start noticing this, but now I can't help it. That of course is very unpleasant to be treated as "guilty by default", but what can I do...
