If you are single, you have a disability

According to WHO, you are disabled if you have no boo or bae to call your own.

According to the Telegraph in a report published in  October, “the World Health Organization will change its definition of disabilities to classify people without a sexual partner.”

If you're on your own and have got no one to call yours, you'll now be categorised under the same bracket as people who are infertile.

So it is not enough that you often have to cuddle your pillow on cold windy nights, or that you don’t yet have that special person in whom you confide without any worry.

To top all that, you’ll now be seen as a disabled person, according to WHO’s controversial proposal.

Categorizing single people in the same bracket as infertile persons may sound absurd and insensitive but WHO says they are doing this for a noble cause.

“The controversial new classifications will make it so that single people who may be seeking vitro fertilization in order to have a child will receive the same priority as couples.”

Previously, you’d have to be a heterosexual couple to get access to  this.

The World Health Organization has still not made these new terms official but they according to the Telegraph, they seem to be moving forward with it.
