Who is gay? My brother's fiance, (male) is starting medical school this year. His ultimate goal is to be a pediatrician. One of his teachers mentioned that he may want to keep his sexuality a secret after graduation. He wouldn't (and doesn't) tell anyone unless they ask, but still, I'm curious. Would you have a problem with a homosexual pediatrician? If you found out your pediatrician was gay, would you switch? (Assuming that he/she is a good doctor)

Why should a doctors sexual orientation matter as long as my children are getting proper care

Homosexual does not equate to pedophile. DS currently has a female pediatrician. A homosexual male would not be any different.

Not at all. That's just crazy! As long as the person is a good dr that's all that matters to me.

His sexuality doesn't matter. Just because you're gay doesn't mean he is a sexual deviant.

How would I know? I don't ask my pediatircian who they like to sleep with. Can you give proper medical care to my kid? If yes, I like you.

No.  His sexuality has nothing to do with how well he can do his job.

Gay does not mean pedophile.
