Still more utter insanity compliments of the deranged Americans With Disabilities Act:
It could cost U.S. employers between $2 billion and $4 billion to comply with an obscure Americans with Disabilities Act regulation meant to protect workers who are gun-shy in public restrooms.
According to an informal discussion letter the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued in August 2011, “paruresis” — more commonly known as “shy bladder syndrome” — qualifies as a disability under the amended Americans with Disabilities Act. …
If every employer large enough to be subject to the ADA were to hedge against future lawsuits by adding segregated restrooms for timid tinklers, the cost would exceed the gross domestic product of many small nations.
In the beginning, the ADA only covered severe handicaps. But as with all things Big Government, it grew, and grew, and kept growing well past the point of absurdity.
The locust swarm of lawyers that is eating our country alive will no longer be required to find someone to roll around in a wheelchair, looking for businesses to extort with threats of lawsuits. Anyone can pretend to be a “timid tinkler.”
