Men and women aren't THAT different
It's good to see that hospitals continuing with mixed-sex wards will face penalties. It can be dehumanising. But I was still amused to hear the PM programme on Radio 4 citing the fact that a woman had woken up to find a man 'pleasuring himself' in the next bed as an example of why the practice should be stamped out. (The practice of mixed-sex wards, I mean.) The implication was that a man waking up to find the man in the next bed pleasuring himself would consider it perfectly acceptable.
