Yesterday, Greece came through with a long-awaited economic reform deal. Congratulations to them.
What I want to know, however, is what the heck the Greek government was thinking when it recently expanded a list of state-recognized disability categories to include pedophiles, exhibitionists and kleptomaniacs. Bailout money back, please.
At Res Ipsa Loquitor, Jonathan Turley notes that the Greek government already recognizes pyromaniacs, compulsive gamblers, fetishists and sadomasochists as persons entitled to ask for government assistance.
Fortunately, the Americans with Disabilities Act enumerates a number of psychological impairments which are not disabilities and, thus, cannot give rise to a claim under the ADA. These disorders include pedophilia, exhibitionism, other sexual behavior disorders, compulsive gambling, kleptomania, and pyromania.
