1) It’s a professional setting and remarking on someone’s physical appearance in this setting especially is pretty rude.
2) The journalist is doing her job, not inviting a come-on or a pick-up attempt.
3) The doctor’s opinion of the journalist’s appearance is actually irrelevant. A woman being in your presence is NOT an open invitation to hit on her.
“Scare” liberals? I’m already fucking terrified of this happening, thanks. If you’ve been paying attention at all to issues that directly affect your health and options, you’re already aware that you damn well SHOULD be worried.
