Is being male a disability? Yes, says Proskauer Rose partner Louis Solomon.
According to an article in The National Law Journal, Solomon believes that “being male” is on its way to being the next recognized disability.
Men, [Solomon] argues, have a greater susceptibility to certain diseases, a shorter life expectancy and a testosterone level that predisposes them to more aggressive behavior — all factors that could be classified as a disability.
What do you think? Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, is being male an “impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities?”
