Dr Drew Pinsky refers to all men as "pathetic" and credits his wife and women in general with overcoming his prostate cancer

"Dr" Drew has said in other interiews that his wife is basically his hard-driving stage mother and his overexposed TV career is due to her pushy nature.

Given his history of revulsion over anal penetration, I'm not surprised he refused to go for his colonoscopy. Maybe we should take a page from his book and use that fact to make a flippant, public assumption that he was molested by his father.

Men are more prone to risk-taking than women, women are more likely to be cautious about their health. So, yes, that translates into getting more checkups. But that doesn't make men pathetic....just different.

Sweetie he's right. Just because you have no problem having foreign objects up your ass, lots of men, gay or straight don't.

More importantly, how does he sit on the subway?

Huh?

I think that we have to cut Pinsky some slack. He's talking about having just been treated for cancer. As rational as one might try to be on the subject, it's very scary to go through it, and one goes a little nuts. Sometimes that leaks out in odd ways.

Maybe he's trying to appeal to his fan base, maybe he's trying to look more masculine.

Seriously, there are some tough guys who refuse to admit they're ill or to see the doctor, he's trying to look like one of them.

He's a sellout. I used to be a fan on LoveLine too. But now he's as pathologically whorish as his patients.

I could be wrong here, but I didn't think a colonoscopy detected prostate cancer.

I think it's fine that wives should control their husband's health and medical choices as long as husband are allowed to control their frauen's obesity -I mean curviness.

"I think it's fine that wives should control their husband's health and medical choices as long as..."

If one partner controls the other's medical care, it's always because the other doesn't want to think about his health, or doesn't want to take any responsibility.

Whereas with a person's weight... maybe you've got a point.

R11, multiple wives suggest more than one husband. So the apostrophe should follow the second s in husbands, not precede it.

By the way, you're a misogynist. Are you trying to justify being gay by suggesting that women are horrible? That's even somewhat homophobic; I like men because I like men, not because they're better than the alternative.

But...he's a doctor. He should know better & should practice what he preaches. Then again, I always find it kind of ironic when doctors get cancer.

Why is it ironic when doctors get cancer, R14? It might be a bit ironic when their cancers go undetected for longer than they have to.

As a gay man who loves to be anally penetrated and has a handsome gay doctor, I think this Pinsky person has a valid point.

This year and part of last, I underwent treatment for colo-rectal cancer. I hated the exams and put off getting them, and was very hesitant to participate in the treatment.

Unless it's a romantic date, I just don't like fingers and cameras and tubes being shoved up my ass, especially when my ass hole is already inflamed and swollen.

Would rather have my dentist shove his tools and needles into my mouth.

My symptoms presented exactly like late-stage prostate cancer, which is usually lethal. I'm damned lucky to have had a different type of cancer that is treatable. For prostate cancer, early detection is the key to survival, and that means having exams even when you feel healthy, after a certain age.

I feel that my male ego (and fears) helped me to procrastinate unpleasant medical tests.

Women routinely endure invasive pussy and breast cancer screenings. My support network consisted of female friends who survived chemo and radiation therapy for cervical, ovarian, and breast cancer. Few of my male friends are willing to discuss their medical issues at all.

Perhaps the burden of having to deal with reproductive physiology allows women to be more open and less fearful of medical issues.

FWIW, I'm a medical research scientist who intensely dislikes dealing with his own health issues.

His wife had to force him to get a physical? What kind of 55 year old doctor doesn't even go for regular physicals?

Dr. Drew, stop killing has been celebrities with that rehab show of yours. You're going to hell for that one.
