I really wish the hospital would have stuck to its guns: The staff was merely blowing off steam, making a funny video. There were no racist/ sexist/ detrimental remarks. So what if someone doesn't like it? The internet is filled with things we may or may not like, and as reasonable, sane adults we are fully capable of exiting a window and looking elsewhere. And considering how anti-hospital moms criticize the cold, "businesslike" demeanor of hospital staff, you'd think something like this would be a breath of fresh air. Maybe I'm just completely out of touch with reality? Maybe moms lose their sense of humor? The world will never know.
I'm not bashing the organization and its grass-roots followers. I'm all for women who want to deliver their babies in whatever environment works for them. You want to have a kid in a tree? Go for it. But don't get all huffy over a parody video. There are lots of people who would love to see their doctors dancing around the hallways, acting like a South Korean pop star. I had a team of doctors this past summer whom I'd LOVE to see do something like this. Medical staff are REAL people with personalities and interests and I think it's great that we get to see them.
My favorite part of the video: ENDO GOT A SHOUT-OUT!
What do you think about this censorship business? Do you think it's ruining all the fun, like I do?
