Had to quote this crazy story, what a mad one that healthcare workers need backup for protection.

I've been in a similar situation. A few years back I had to have a berries check (catch my meaning?) for cancer and the Doctor was female, she told me to go behind the curtain and drop my trousers but then walked in with a male Nurse, without warning and it was a bit of a shock, I said that it was fine for it to be just her I wasn't going to accuse her of anything and her words were "Oh he isn't here to be a witness for you. He is here for my protection" which took my breath away (and that was before the cold hands) I asked what she meant, that I've never attacked anyone and she just shrugged and said "Sorry it's just that we have rules we have to follow" and then went on with the appointment.

The problem is todays attitudes.
A male gently touches a woman in any capacity, she cries that he's a sex offender and the world rallies around the woman #metoo.
A female gently touches a man in any capacity, he complains that it's inappropriate and he is laughed at and ridiculed.
That is the problem.
I had one today from a woman I love deeply...made the world feel amazing for a few seconds.

I mean when was the last time any of you had a true, honest, long, hold on for all your worth, breathtaking hug? All troubles go away at that point.
