Can't Be Offended By Sex, Drugs & Rock N' Roll

Are you kidding me? I’m sure this doesn’t represent a national epidemic, but here’s news of Muslim medical students in the UK refusing to answer questions on substance abuse and sex as offensive.

Some Muslim medical students are refusing to attend lectures or answer exam questions on alcohol-related or sexually transmitted diseases because they claim it offends their religious beliefs.

A small number of Muslim medical students have even refused to treat patients of the opposite sex. One male student was prepared to fail his final exams rather than carry out a basic examination of a female patient.

The religious objections by students have been confirmed by the British Medical Association (BMA) and General Medical Council (GMC), which both stressed that they did not approve of such actions.

Just kinda wacky. There’s no PC bullshit here. It really is very simple: you don’t like the responsibilities of it, then don’t go into a profession. Doesn’t get simpler than that.
