Dokteressen delen massaal bikinifoto’s uit protest: “Ik draag wat ik wil!” (foto’s)

De hashtag ‘medkini’ gaat momenteel stevig rond op sociale media.

En dat heeft alles te maken met een onderzoek uit 2019 dat recent publiek toegankelijk gemaakt werd.

’t Gaat allemaal om deze studie, waarin geconcludeerd wordt dat artsen beter geen bikinifoto’s op sociale media delen. Ook prentjes waarop artsen te zien zijn met een alcoholische consumptie, zouden beter niet gedeeld worden.

De foto’s zouden volgens de studie (met hoofdzakelijk mannelijke auteurs, red.) namelijk een negatieve invloed kunnen hebben wanneer potentiële patiënten hun keuze qua arts maken. De conclusie dat bikinifoto’s en bovengenoemde plaatjes ‘ongepast’ zouden zijn, schiet nu in het verkeerde keelgat.


Vooral vrouwelijke artsen delen uit protest nu foto’s op sociale media onder de hashtag ‘medkini’. “Ik kan dragen wat ik wil”, klinkt het. “Mijn vrouw zit niet op Twitter, maar ze is een geweldige dokter, vrouw en mama en draagt een bikini en drinkt zoals iedere ‘normale’ mens”, aldus de partner van een arts.

Came home late last night after a long day taking care of patients to find my feed flooded with my fellow female docs posing in bikinis – here’s why: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A study published in a vascular surgery journal is making waves for all the wrong reasons – it essentially consisted of several male authors creating FAKE social media accounts to stalk the profiles of their fellow colleagues in vascular surgery in search of “clearly unprofessional” and “potentially unprofessional” content. Sounds pretty judgmental, right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What met their definition of potentially unprofessional content? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌀Holding/consuming alcohol 🌀Inappropriate attire (including “provocative” posing in bikinis/swimwear and Halloween costumes) – to which I ask: who made them authorities on what is and is not “provocative”? Stop and think – what connotation does that word have? Do we typically describe men as provocative, or does it sound an AWFUL lot like they’re talking about women? 🌀Controversial social commentary (specifically, publicly sharing your stance on gun control and abortion) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Their purpose was to make readers “cognizant of their social media footprint.” Pretty ironic that they are now being publicly shamed by this “permanent public exposure that can be accessed by peers, patients, and future employers.” Yes, we see you 👀 and will use your own words against you, since you and those who reviewed this article and somehow missed the questionable methods and how the language used was discriminatory against women. Way to uphold the patriarchal structure of medicine 👏🏽👏🏽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I reject the idea that my social media page is a poor reflection of who I am if I choose to post a bikini shot, show myself enjoying a glass of wine or summer cocktail OUTSIDE of work on my OWN time, or share with you my thoughts on current events that may involve social issues relevant to our time. Shocker – physicians are humans too. What we wear or do with our free time outside of work does not take away from our accomplishments or our ability to take excellent care of patients. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #medbikini #scrubsonscrubsoff #doctorsarehumanstoo

20 + years of education. I’ve missed many holidays, birthdays, weddings. I have put my life on hold. I haven’t had kids yet. Haven’t gotten married. I work 80+ hours a week and usually have to study after work. I’ve had many sleepless nights. I chose this life. I chose to put those things on hold for becoming a doctor. But I wouldn’t change any of it because I love being a doctor. I love being a surgeon in training. I love helping people. There is no feeling quite like saving someone’s life. So when misogynist men make a study which judges women upsets me. Am I not supposed to have a life ? I can’t go to the beach in a bathing suit? I can’t enjoy a glass of wine with my friends? I can’t have an opinion on world issues ? In a time which physicians daily are putting their lives at risk, we are in one of the biggest social justice movements of our times and we have STILL have men making fake Instagram accounts to follow women and judge them ? I mean I’ll take a lesser paycheck because I know we “aren’t there yet” . I’ll take patients telling me it’s a mans job, or saying “why don’t you want to have kids”, or assuming I’m not the doctor even after I tell them I am because I am a female. I’ll take those hits all day. But for a journal to publish this article is outrageous. But when men post pictures in bathing suits it’s “wellness”. Drinking is for men too. So is guns and political stance. No judgement there. No article in a journal. Nothing. The study was retracted this morning. But the fact still reamins. It was published. It jumped all the hoops to get to the end. It’s so hard. But they did it. The point is racism, sexism, and prejudice needs to end. Why do we tear eachother down based on our gender, color of our skin, sexual identify, etc. We should be building eachother up. And I’m here to stay. My loud, bubbly, laughing, friend making, margarita drinking, beach going, girl dating, crossfit training self isn’t going anywhere so get used to it men. It’s a women’s world too. #medkini #medbikini #womeninmedicine #womeninsurgery #ilooklikeasurgeon #journalofvascularsurgery

You can be both 👊🏻 Women have come a long way in demanding respect in the professional world, and we won’t stop now. • You can stand with your feet in the sandy beach of Hawaii, toss water around in a Costa Rican waterfall, and pose for a photo rockin’ your bikini. And guess what?! You can STILL restart a patient’s heart to save a patient’s life. • Don’t let the insecurities of others diminish your capabilities. You can have a life outside of work (and you SHOULD have a life outside of work), and still show up every day and be a kick ass nurse! 🩺 • So for all my girl bosses, this one is for you! Believe in yourself. Own the life you live. Forget the people who try to bring you down. Know your worth. 💜

I’m a nursing student & healthcare worker who wears bikinis, drinks all the wine, margaritas, and Truly Lemonades, and swears more than I’m sure my parents would like, but I will continue to do so because 👏🏼 I 👏🏼 can 👏🏼 For some unknown reason, there was a group of MALE surgeons that felt the need to create fake Instagrams accounts to troll on female healthcare professionals and develop an article on their “findings”. Their article focused on how many of these females were posting inappropriate pictures by having photos in bikinis, drinking, cussing, and talking about controversial social & political topics – by doing so, these male surgeons deemed them/anyone else in healthcare who does the same, as having a negative impact in their patients care/outcomes. The main thing that I can think about in response to these surgeons or anyone else who believes this to be true is this: Piss off. I will always give my all to my patients, profession, and employer, but you better believe I’ll reward myself with a drink once I get home. And if I had a rough day, I may vent & throw in a cuss word or two. Because I’m human and I’m more than my job title. @thenursekristen said it best, “what I do/wear outside of my job does not determine how good of a nurse I am” #medkini

Swipe 👉🏻 for a recent study that researched unprofessional social media content in young medical providers. Essentially, a group of male vascular surgeons created fake social media accounts (major creepy stalker vibes anyone?) to observe their female coworkers’ social media pages to conduct said “research.”⁣ ⁣ And what made their unprofessional list?⁣ Posing in Halloween costumes, wearing swimsuits, and holding alcoholic drinks. ⁣ ⁣ My response:⁣ 😄😎👙🥂💁🏼‍♀️ #fakenews⁣ ⁣ Medical providers are not robots 🤖 We wear bikinis, go to Halloween parties with friends, and *gasp* drink alcohol every once in awhile. ⁣ ⁣ I can wear a bikini on a Sunday, and diagnose your skin cancer on a Monday. One does not take away from the other! ⁣ ⁣ I stand with all my fellow female medical providers, who have UNDOUBTEDLY experienced sexism in the workplace. ⁣ ⁣ 👏🏻 Enough is enough 👏🏻 Be confident, wear what you want, when you want, and still kick butt at work!

A medical journal published a sexist, misogynistic article on female physicians and unprofessionalism based off their attire and social media posts. In and out of the workplace, women are defined and confined to certain restrictions and then dehumanized, when men can live outside those same boundries with unlimted freedoms. Women deserve equal rights, freedoms, and respect while at their jobs and while living their lives. We are professionals and human beings as well. So you know what's unprofessional? Sexism, dehumanization, double standards, and discrimination. 💪🏽 I stand with my female vascular surgery colleagues. I stand with women in medicine. Shame on the medical journal and shame on the authors. #medbikini #medkini #bikini #doctor #human #ilooklikeadoctor #womeninmedicine #docsofinsta #somedocs #socialmedia #womenrights #respectwomen #professional
