Posts Not Me?

I've been thinking about some of my posts on here recently. Partially, due to some of the reactions I've had with people misunderstanding what I the point I was trying to get at and also talking to thethirdvoice last night who says that some of these posts don't sound like me at all.

I suppose that just means I'm just not communicating what I'm trying to say very well.

I like posting my iniatial reactions to items I hear in the news when I get up in the mornings, it always seems like a good way of getting my thoughts together on these matters (especially when people comment from the other side). Sometimes I don't even know a lot about the subject to start with, but I view that as ok as this is just a journal of my personal thoughts rather than cutting edge journalism.

Some of my posts perhaps come across a bit stronger than I'm meaning them though, so perhaps it's just a matter of getting a bit more clarity into these.

Segregating By Sex In Hospitals

Row over mixed-sex hospital wards

OK, I've not really had any long stints in hospital, so maybe I'd feel differently if I had, but this ones got me confused? Why is this an issue?

Why do we need to segregate by sex in hospital wards?

If it's just a question of dignity, then surely you could easily suffer the same loss of dignity around members of the same sex? Besides isn't that what they put the curtains around the beds for? I would like to think they'd use them when there was any risk of loss of dignity.

I guess this is just an issue that I just don't get.
