This doctor doesn’t understand why thinking of her patients as if they’re children and calling them “sweetie” might be, oh, I don’t know, just a little bit offensive (just her sweet pathetic female patients, mind you). And why it’s ok for a waitress at Denny’s to call someone sweetie, but not for someone in a position of authority. Like, my department secretary can bless my heart when I’m complaining, but I’d be seriously pissed if my dean did the same. Initially, I thought it was great that she was willing to change her mind and stop doing something she hadn’t realized was problematic, but instead it looks like she’s attacking anybody who disagrees with her and was just trying to justify doing something she knows deep down is bad. Note that all the people disagreeing with her (except us!) are doing it anonymously, reinforcing that authority thing.
