Naughty Nurse legal action caused by burger grill ads & promos. The columnist covers most of the bases, but I’ll add my own brief reaction:
Yeah, sexy nurse jokes/comments can be frustrating to professionals — as are many sexist jokes & beliefs. But I don’t think anyone really thinks nurses are sex providers or uneducated in medicine. Hell, blue scrubs (or those with teddy bears etc) aren’t exactly sexy. Well, to each his/her own… I’ve just never been to a hospital where any one’s been dressed as a Naughty Nurse or Nympho Candy Striper.
Sometimes the best ‘medicine’ for ignorant belief systems (which hurt no one) is to ignore them. Do you see the doctors complaining that ‘someone’ might mistake the image of doctors with this menu as a ‘recommendation’? No. It’s too funny to be considered real.
The campaign may seem tasteless to some, but I just think it’s funny.
Then again, I don’t want a pissed-off nurse taking my temperature rectally (or doing any other procedure). I hope my nurse has a sense of humor.
