Pediatricians warn educators not to promote

by cheaande


being 'gay'
A story in today’s WingNutDaily tells us how a national association of pediatricians warns schools against the dangers of “affirming the homosexual lifestyle”. Who are these people, exactly?
The American College of Pediatricians is a nonprofit organization founded in 2002. It is not, as some might assume, a part of or in any way related to the American Academy of Pediatrics, a 60,000-member professional association of pediatricians. In fact, its members left the AAP because the AAP issued a statement supporting the adoption of children by homosexual parents

The vocations you mentioned vary greatly on the length and rigor of education involved and salary.
For example, becoming a surgeon requires 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and at least 3 years, but most likely 5 to 6 years of residency and subspecialty training and very long work hours thereafter, but it pays very well (under the current health care system).
To be an EMT, I believe is a semester or year-long course at a community college, but it does not pay very well.
I would not classify surgeons as ISTP, but family medical practitioners, psychiatrists, internists and pediatricians tend to have more ISTP personalities
