I am so glad I read this article today, I am a white CIS woman but not native to Ireland where I live (a foreigner! Scandal! I should go back to my country!) and I was getting the impression, during a recent visit to the hospital, that medical staff were being slightly dismissive and condescending. I had to stand up for myself several times but thankfully I managed to receive good care. Not many people may be that lucky if they don't speak up though.
