Re the episode aired today, May 18, including the young man with a bent ***** who was assured by the doctor that "a straight ***** is actually painful for many women" and therefore it's not a bad thing for him to have. This is an example of blatantly heterosexist assumptions/language that has no place on a forward-thinking program. Even if it were previously established that the young man was heterosexual (which I doubt was established), it excludes all those who aren't and who are watching. It's 2013 - your gay male viewers don't care how their bent ***** fits in a woman. Physicians should use inclusive language.
