you squeamish? I wouldn't say that. I'm not fond of realistic/real gore,
but not all sissyfied about it.
Dallas, TX USA Not very. I'd rather see what is there than be left with my imaginings. Jane, 62
West Linn, OR USA I think I can stand most things, but those liposuctions they do on TV really wig me out! That's so gross to watch!! Tracy, 24
Ocean City, NJ USA About some things, yes. But not in general. Karen, 22
Marshalltown/Ames, IA USA My stomach definitely gets squeamish with blood, cuts, large wounds. Janet, 44
E. Brunswick, NJ USA Sometimes. It depends on what the situation is. I can clean up all manner of disgusting dog mess -- and I have disgusting dog mess stories. Maybe someday I'll tell you about the dead squirrel pie. But when my husband needed stitches over his eye, he wanted me to go with him while the doctor treated Laura, 36
Lowell, MA USA Not particularly. Adults give up the "right" to be squeamish., except on ethical issues. Jill, 60
Saylorsburg, PA USA Not particularly. I do feel like puking when I see surgeries on TV and I once saw a person who was stabbed bleeding out onto the street. That was not at all pleasant. Felicia, 35
Lowell, MA USA Not too much. Alias Irrelevante It's a funny thing: I'm not squeamish about large amounts of blood and carnage, but when I see needles going into people or thin cuts in human skin being made it turns my stomach. I'm not sure why that is; that minor things bother me. Johanna, 18
OK USA Absoluteley possitively NOt squeamish! *humph* AHHH! Was that a spider? NIcole2, 20
FL USA not really Patty It really depends. With movies I'm not (but that's kinda sad, isn't it?), but in real life I freak out whilst helping (hey I know first aid!). Jaden, 21
Brampton, Ontario CANADA Nope. Ry, 23
NYC Well, not really. I get off on the cheesy B horror flicks that solely exist to show death and carnage is various forms. Anyway, the site of vomit tends to make me do the same. Feces makes me gag. We had septic problems a year or two ago and I dry heaved the entire time I was cleaning up. So, in conclusion...poop and puke get me...I'm all for blood and guts...and I like to dry heave.
Almost never, but that blood drinking on Survivor did get to me!
I can recall only a couple of times when my knees have gone weak looking at something particularly gross, but for the most part I can take an awful lot and just shrug it off.
I gave birth to an eight and a half pound baby. I wash the layers of grime off of baby, I feed various mushy goopy foodstuffs to baby, I change said baby's poopy diapers.... no I am not squeamish at all.
I am not squamish when it comes to the movies...or my own blood (which I think is pretty cool)...it is other people's blood that I kind of have a cow about...
No not at all, I love seeing gorry horror films and such!
Nah, not really.
Yes, in many situations. Sometimes I am okay, but I don't like bugs or gore or things like that.
Am I squeamish? Not much. I went to Medical Technician school and when I was told I would have to dissect a cat, I wondered how on earth I would do it as I love cats and have one at home. This was a time I thought I would be extremely squeamish. But you know what? A dead cat is not the same as a living cat...it's just a 'thing' once the soul is gone. I guess if I was going to be squeamish, it would have to be about something living.
I don't think so. I once watched open-heart surgery on TV once without any problems.
Colorado Springs, CO USA Nope. I almost always feel ok with myself and my desciscions Derya
