A Florida woman was duped into changing diapers and bottle feeding a man she met through Craigslist who feigned mental disabilities.
The story is light on details. For instance, where were these services rendered- his house or hers? What was involved in the "changing diapers"? What was in the bottle she fed him? How old was the man who pretended to have the mental disabilities?
[Janet] Schulte says the worst thing is that authorities can't go after the man because he appears not to have committed any crime. Though the man lied, he typically paid the agreed $600 weekly for her services.
I for one am glad that it's not a crime to pretend to have mental disabilities. Certain comedic actors would be in jail if that were the case. But this does raise an interesting question. Is a grown man's enjoyment of wearing a diaper and being bottle fed so far outside the norms of society that it in itself constitutes a "mental disability"? By placing the ad on craigslist and paying someone $600 a week to satisfy this need, was he in effect validating the "lie"?
Batman wears a diaper in public. Some have argued that Batman suffers from mental disabilities; but never to his face.
