Oh, and last but not least, who would even buy a bra from Belks, ewwwwww!

So so the women that get fitted by men and buy their bras from men have to get stoned by their fathers, brothers, husbands?

Nope, they get a free pass, its against the law for a woman to be a bra fitter. Go figure!
I thought it was a fitting (pardon the pun) analogy for the ridiculousness posted by the OP.

Actually I've come to the conclusion that the only reason we think the OP is odd is because she's not a Muslim. These issues appear to be par for the course in dealing with Muslims:

Muslim woman demands female attendant for emergency-room EKG

Even when it comes to female Muslim doctors:

Folks, remember it is against the TOS to call someone a troll or to say they need psychiatric treatment. Please limit yourselves to the topic, not the OP's mental or internet status.

The problem here is placing anything sexual, not just the act itself but every body part involved, on a "sacred" pedistal. In my experience this is usually done by people who are not close to having a sexual relationship yet, either because they are very young or becasue they suffer from sexual hangups and want to postpone what they think is the inevitable. Sex may be specail, but it's not even CLOSE to be sacred.

There is nothing wrong with being modest, I alway wear a something over the hopital gown myself, but when it comes to actually having your body worked on you need to either trust the medical professionals you have or not. If not, then just stay home and hope whatever it is gets better on it's own.

Healthcare professionals are just that--PROFESSIONALS. Anatomy is anatomy, and as professionals are far more concerned about your well-being.

Let me ask you a question. Since you think it is okay for men to be gynecologists, what do you think about men who want to become bra fitters at Belk's? Belk's will only hire females to be bra fitters. I encourage men in this discussion who don't see anything wrong with male gynecologists to call Belk's and see if they can apply to be bra fitters. They would think that men who wanted to be bra fitters are perverted. Male gynecologists are not morally above other men. If it is okay for a man to be a gynecologist, why is it not okay for a man to be a bra fitter at Belk's or another clothing store?

If you do a deep research on Google, you will find out that many male doctors have gotten aroused by doing gynecological exams on women. One doctor felt so convicted that he gave up doing gynecological exams and he said tha his wife only goes to a female ob/gyn. There are doctors and nurses out there who do understand my convictions clearly.
Not true actually I have had a female customer show the MALE pharmacist her breasts when she was showing me her rash under her breasts. It is to bad we didn't have breast covers to offer her! I guess we need Modest women to decide what would be appropriate in each situation

Modest Woman, I don't share your beliefs, but I respect them. Everyone should have the right to make choices about the care they receive, or to refuse it altogether. Because of your strong and non-mainstream preferences, you would be wise to check out the physicians, hospitals, medical facilities, etc. in your area, and be sure your family knows your preferences - put them in writing in an advanced directive, in case of an emergency situation.

What do you wear over a hospital gown? I'm not a very experienced hospital patient (only twice in 62 years) - but during my last stay a few weeks ago - I brought a robe with me - but didn't have the slightest idea how to put it on considering the IV in my hand - the Foley - the "bellows" on my legs - all the tubes - pumps - etc. Luckily - the room wasn't cold (common problem with A/C in Florida in the summer) - and I was very comfortable during my stay.

Since I am more like a caged animal at the hospital and seemed to need to roam the halls, they would give me a 2nd gown to wear backwards so I had "full coverage" but could still mange the wires and what not.
