Do Mexican Avoid Prostate Exams?
Search Text Case Sensitive  Exact Words  Include Comments

Dear Mexican: Over the years, I’ve had several different American doctors digitally violate me to examine my old prostate. Always, before they examine me, they play Cat Stevens’ music. It explains why old American men uniformly hate Cat Stevens. I’m moving to Mexico soon, and assume that my next annual physical will be performed by a Mexican. Do Mexican doctors play Cat Stevens before they examine your prostrate? Do old Mexican men hate that guy as much as old men from America?

Culo Chris

Dear Gabacho: Does anyone care about Cat Stevens anymore besides Muslims? Certainly not Mexicans. But I can say that old Mexican men hate prostate exams far more than gabachos, because they’d rather risk dying painfully from a preventable cancer than getting anything shoved into their nalgas. This ain’t just stereotyping Mexican masculinity, but the unfortunate truth. The awesomely titled “I Will No Longer Be a Man! Manliness and Prostate Cancer Screenings Among Latino Men” by Zully Rivera-Ramos and Lydia Buki that appeared in the December 201 issue of Psychology of Men & Masculinity found that “prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer among Latino men. Due, in part, to lower rates of screening.” And why the low rates of digital rectal exams? Same reasons found in “Expressions of Machismo in Colorectal Cancer Screening Among New Mexico Hispanic Subpopulations” in the April 2012 issue of Qualitative Health Research: It’s the machismo, pendejo. Mexican men, like Kanye West, only want toilet paper to touch their anuses because anything else would make them gay. And now you know why Mexico is Mexico.

 

My husband swears up and down that Mexican men do not grant drivers the courtesy of “cutting in” or merging into their lane. I tell him that he’s crazy, but every time he runs into this situation, the driver just happens to be a male that looks to be Mexican. What’s the deal with that? I’m out to prove him wrong, but so far everything is working out in his favor.

Let Me In, Damnit!

Dear Gabacha: You really think a culture that celebrates coming into this country without papers is going to care about letting people get ahead of them during traffic? That’s like expecting Donald Trump to suddenly offer aguachile at his restaurants—¡no mames!

 

Is it just my imagination, or do Mexican families tend to fiesta on Sunday evenings more than any other day of the week? If the driveway is packed full of cars, the oompah is blaring, and the kids are running wild, it tends to be a Sunday. Why?

Interested Neighbor

Dear Gabacho: My saintly mami told me that when she and her siblings were picking garlic in California’s Central Valley during the 1960s as preteens, they’d work Monday through Saturday, wash clothes and clean around the house Sunday morning, then spend the rest of their Domingo afternoon relaxing along with all the other Mexicans they knew. Same with Mexicans of this era, although I would add that Saturday evenings are also reserved for weddings and quinceañeras—but since that involves navigating family and rancho rivalries dating back to the Porfiriato, the Mexican considers more hard labor than puro pinche pari.

  1. This is in reply to the person moving down to Old Mexico. I spent 11 months down there with my family. In the little town I stayed in Jalisco, a doctor’s visit cost me about 18 US dollars, and it included some times the medicine that came with the visit. I just went to a doctor’s visit here in AZ, the cost: 420 dollars without the medicine at all. Also, a visit to a doctor in old Mexico ( I am only giving here my personal experience), its kind of friendly encounter with the doctor, who was a funny guy, joking around and friendly. It was fanny, as soon as you arrived, and he saw you, immediately he told us what was wrong with us! So, just get with some one who already has been there.

    BTW: I met a couple when at the airport coming back, and asked them if they were coming back to the States, and the Gentleman answered “you don’t pay me enough to go back”. Only people who experience down there enjoys. I met several Americans, and Canadians who were living there, and loving it. So for those haters, just go over there, and enjoy the climate and way of life, you might end up shedding your hate away.

    I spent decades living in Los Angeles, watching it turn from a White city to a multi-cult capital. Given the decay I've seen the Mexicans bring to my hometown, I don't need to go down there to experience anything. Those Americans who do move there like it primarily because their dollars go so much further, and the locals accept them as long as the American money continues to trickle down.
    , @anon
    Yes, but if Mexico is such a wonderful place as you say, why are so many millions of Mexicans 'voting with their feet' to leave it?
    , @Wally
    You are quite uninformed.

    Mexico receives US taypayers money from the US Gov, and they get money from the UN, EU, and World Bank to fund their healthcare system, if one can call it a system.

    IOW, Mexicans do not pay much for their healthcare because others do.

    So there goes your "$18" doctor visit.

    , @O'Coner
    My doctor in Jal. prefers house calls and the price + medicine is about $16. This is what medical care costs if insurance companies aren't involved.

  2. There is the examination of the touch of the breasts that is taught for women to detect any anomalous signal without the strict need of a doctor.

    Why not teach men to take the exam of the prostate without the inconvenient need for a doctor sticking their finger into the anus and making them doubt of your masculinity *

    To answer your question muy pernitente:

    machism

    Hell, i spent years in Oklahoma with mostly whities, and man, the horrible crimes, incest, stabbing wives to death, shootings, you name it. But because is in the backwoods where hill billies live, no national news, so if it happened and the media did not show it, then it did not happened. even so, i refuse to believe that euro-Americans are all evil, just because I knew about those things. Humans are evil, just because they are humans, skin color, or nationality not standing. Just read the history of vikings invading England, Romans versus Germanic s, Franks versus middle easterners, Turks versus Balkans, etc. Hell, the Aztecs were cannibals, according to the Spaniards' history.

    You have a good insurance company, otherwise, the doc will say, "come back in a year!" If at all. Money, money, money! you are $$$, your health is second place.
  13. When I saw this pop up a day or two ago I thought to myself– Do I really want to comment on such a column? Has it come down to this, the lowest possible common denominator in discourse? Anyhow “my better demons” (to paraphrase that FreedomWorks guy Dick Armey) got a hold of me and here I am again yucking it up.

    I’m sort of like Fred Reed, only a less successful guy, with a disorganized past and lots of stories for my grandkids from home and abroad. In a past life I worked out of an office in an office park that included among other tenants a rather large urological practice in a locale with about an 18 per cent “latino” population that had practically zero 35 years ago. I became chummy with some of the doctors there and when they found out that I did the “habla”, I found myself with a lucrative side job taking care of their “Latino” patients’ language barriers.

    The types of cases ran the gamut with both male and female patients of various ages, marital status and “contents of character” but there was a disproportionent amount of under 30 single male don Juans compared to same type of character in the local founding stock patient base.

    One case in particular was that of a young Mexican man with complaints of a foul burning discharge from the penis. Very often people with tell the interpreter “the darndest things” without the interpreter leading them on while waiting for the doctor to enter the exam room. This one told me of his many exploits with “hembras ricas” and about all the cocaine he packed up his nose. Enter the PA for the initial interview and exam. She looked about like one of Donald Trump’s daughters. The Mexican don Juan was beside himself and instructed me to just tell her everything we had been talking about for the past fifteen minutes and I complied. The PA shook her head and admonished him about his cocaine habit. She then produced a microscope slide and a finger cot and instructed don Juan to drop his trousers as she knelt before him. Talk about eyes bigger than somebody’s eyes spooked in a minstrel show!! She then instructed him to hold the slide at the tip of his penis while she put the cot on and KY’ed don Juan’s ojete.

    Bigger eyes yet as the deed was done on his prostate and don Juan produced the requisite dribble of semen onto the slide. It was immediately examined under the in-house lab microscope and a DX of some sort of non-specific urethral infection of probable sexual transmission was made. I thought the vato was going to need an appointment with the eye doctor after this one.

    Another significant revenue generator from the “Latino” population in this clinic was adult circumcisions. Some of these guys just didn’t quite get it with male hygiene, smegma and all kind of other “hembra rot”. I won’t go into the gory procedural details of an adult circumcision other than to say that I ultimately refined the discharge instructions as follows:

    1- Cleanliness and dryness is of utmost importance. Gently wash with X medical soap twice daily and dry thoroughly with hairdryer until completely healed and stitches (28 to 45) removed.

    2- Wear clean loose fitting boxer shorts and loose cut pants.

    3- Whatever you do, avoid any thoughts of pussy for four to five weeks. If you get a “pija parada” you WILL regret it. Think about the price of broccoli in China and if that doesn’t work think about the wholesale price of broccoli in China. Buena suerte.

    IOW you’re fine with using other people’s money to pay your bills and you’re fine with Mexican’s using other people’s money to pay their bills.

    I am not using other peoples' money, I am using my own, it came from my wallet, and not yours. Keep dreaming about the whole world paying for their health system, with nor proof whatsoever, only words typed in your screen. For people who live in the real world, I choose the $18 dollars payment system, and yes, I do have health insurance here as well. but as the previous person wrote, the doctor comes to your house. Find me in the USA such service for that price, and you will have me taken that service instead of the insurance hungry medical services we are used to.

    thank you,

    Mr. Wally:

    Now we pay the bill over there! I wonder how you came up with that statement! Basically Mexico is so broke, that we have to pay for their medical services! the 11th economy in the world can't pay for their medical services! :- )

    Indeed, they cannot pay, or simply refuse to.

    Especially when there are suckers who will pay.

    Then there’s the billions of dollars we’ve given / give them for the “war on drugs”.

    Do doctors even use this test routinely anymore? I thought all the screening had such dubious benefits that even the PSA was hardly believed in.

    They’ll still do the exam, but you have to ask real nice.
