I could understand if it was your partner saying that, but not some random guy, and certainly not a doctor. Not cool. Not appropriate. Not acceptable in any sense of the word. I don't know what possessed them to say that to you at all, but it wasn't needed.

If it were me, I'd want to nip that in the bud right away. If you choose not to react, the doctor may see it as a sign that you're ok with them saying that sort of thing to you and could continue to step out of line. You could do one of two things:

1. Speak to the doctor directly and make them aware that their comment towards you wasn't acceptable nor was it professionally appropriate.

2. Speak to whomever is higher up in the doctor's management hierarchy and discuss with them what happened.

There are no excuses for that kind of behaviour. And certainly not 'because he's a guy'. It doesn't matter whom they are. They shouldn't be making those kinds of remarks to you.


Life is for living, not for losing.

Hi Destiny,

I agree with Sarah. That sort of comment is unacceptable. I'd be so disgusted if a random guy, acquaintance or even a friend told me I was "finger-licking good". Romantic partners may be able to say that, but not others. We live in a society where men feel entitled to say whatever they want and still hold their heads up high.

It's important that you make things clear to him if he approaches you in this way again in the future. Nothing is more bold than a woman who can speak her mind and establish boundaries. That way, guys will also realise that you're not the kind to be.

Don't hesitate to speak your mind
