Doctor, Doctor

My GP is a Muslim woman who wears the hijab. Being the professional I am (guffaw) this doesn't really bother me and I act with her as I would with any other doctor. I have to admit, however, that beneath the surface various apprehensions and thoughts will be buzzing away.

It's perfectly natural and human, I guess, but still kind of prejudiced too. I guess there's nothing wrong with having reservations and principles about something as sensitive as personal health, but I do wonder if we'll ever reach a stage when these kind of things will become totally objective and clinical - and whether that would be a good or bad place to be in.

And yes, she's married. I saw the ring.


  1. does it turn you on when she examines you?

  2. i find it a pointless posting messages to your blog when you don't reply shakil. that's hardly any way to encourage discussion is it? i've decided to boycott your blog

  3. are we doing dinner tonight?

  4. no sorry rohit, i'm busy tonight
