I had a shitty time at my mammogram appt as of late. I’ve to get an ultrasound after my mammograms as a result of I’ve dense breasts (insert shaggy dog story right here) and this radiologist — the similar guy I had ultimate yr — I don’t like him and this is why:
He opened my robe and put gel on my breasts and smeared it round together with his naked palms. Then he began speaking to me about my chest X-ray (I additionally were given a chest X-Ray) and was once pontificating with my boobs simply out and lined in gel and chilly and after all I stated “Hey-can we either talk about this when I’m dressed or WHILE your doing the ultrasound? I’m not comfortable with my breasts out just shooting the shit with you”
Okay so — he smears the gel on together with his palms and NO GLOVES on and when he glides the ultrasound wand factor over my breasts he drags his hands on them and it fucking bothers me. Again, AS I TOLD HIM LAST YEAR, I stated “Hey! Do you need to be touching me with your fingers?” He stated “No”. And he pulled them off of me. Then he added “I do that for balance.” I stated “Well I believe in you and I think you can do with without your fingers on me”
Look, I really don’t suppose he was once getting off on it, BUT it’s his activity to remember that that is inclined for a girl. Wear fucking GLOVES – this isn’t a date. For him to be so smug that he didn’t even internalize the issue after I stated one thing to him about it ultimate yr is obnoxious and almost certainly a unconscious energy factor if we’re getting deep.
That was once my ultimate mammogram with this dude. Or any dude.
Look. I’m a grown lady and I’m nice. But this man does this with everybody and I do know that in my opinion it took a few years into maturity sooner than I spoke up for myself. It’s uncomfortable and too simple to suppose it’s all to your head. And smug fucks like this physician make the most of ladies’s socialized intuition not to discuss up.
All this to mention discuss up. Trust that factor to your intestine that tells you this shit ain’t proper.
