From: Diagnostic Criteria of Schizoid Personality Disorder

The diagnostic criteria of Schizoid Personality Disorder include:

“Secret vouyeristic and pornographic interests; vulnerable to erotomania; tendency towards compulsive masturbation and perversions.”

I have to look at porn.  I have to masturbate.  It’s part of my psychopathology!

I am unable to work because I am forced by my disorder to look at porn and masturbate.  The U.S. Social Security Administration recognizes that I am disabled, and pays me a monthly stipend so that I might continue to support myself in my unemployment.  Most employers are not able to accommodate my need to masturbate during working hours, so I remain unemployable per the Americans With Disabilities Act.  Note that masturbation is a time-consuming and exhausting activity that will tend to interfere with an employee's ability to perform useful work.

In fact, the D.C. Office of Corporation Counsel submitted as a reason for my job termination to the D.C. Court of Appeals the fact that I thought about the act of masturbation on the afternoon of Friday April 13, 1990.  See Brief of Appellee District of Columbia, Freedman v. D.C. Department of Human Rights, D.C.C.A. no. 96-CV-961 (Sept. 1, 1998):

"On April 13, 1990, Freedman eavesdropped on a conversation in which the legal assistant administrator gave instructions to another legal assistant concerning the bates-numbering of some documents.  Freedman believes that her repeated use of the word "bates" was a reference to masturbation.  R. 345."

 The D.C. Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the District, implicitly affirming that thinking about masturbation on the job is a reasonable and lawful basis for an employer to terminate an employee.

The ravages of mental illness are indeed tragic!
