WHO: being single=infertility

According to this report the WHO (World Health Organisation) wants to redefine infertility to mean being single regardless of a persons ability to be fertile.  The inherent lack of a partner is what they want to base the definition of infertility on.  If they get their way they are likely to redefine being single as a disability.

Where do I start with that?


  • Plenty of single mothers prove that being single/unmarried does not stop people from being fertile.  Ditto single fathers (it does take two).
  • Being single is not a disability.  It can be a pain, and people like to see how much of a doormat you might want to be, but it's not a disability.
  • An inability to find someone to have fun with does not make you infertile but it might keep you single (maybe you want to stay single and that's all good).
  • Trying to redefine being single as a disability is an insult to all people in chronic pain or limited due to health conditions
  • This is insulting to people struggling with medically diagnosed infertility
