Appreciating the diversity and complexity of humanity.

I QUESTION Teresa O'Connor's viewpoints on men's leadership appointments in the nursing profession (see "Men in nursing--what's their rightful place?" Kai Tiaki Nursing New Zealand, May, p29). I'm proud the most suitable and dedicated applicant gets the job with no discrimination shown, whatever their sex.

As a mother of five children I've learnt to accept the inherent preferences people are born with. I have a son who loves hunting and sports many a trophy head; the other son won't kill an ant. One daughter loves the fun and romance of a wedding, the other says she'll never have a husband. I'm not going to ridicule them but cultivate each attribute, because I know it all adds to the beautiful complexity of this world.
